The Grand Prix is a range of vehicles built by the Pontiac Division of General Motors from 1962 till 2002 for coupes and 1988 though 2008 for sedans across seven generations. Launched as part of Pontiac's full-size automobile model range for the 1962 model year, the brand varied often in size, luxury, and performance during its lifespan.
The Pontiac Grand Prix comes in two trim levels: base and GXP. Only two engines are available for the Grand Prix. The base model is powered by a 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces 200 horsepower and 230 pound-feet of torque. The Grand Prix GXP represents a big upgrade, with a 5.3-liter V8 engine that delivers 303 hp and 323 lb-ft of torque. Both models are front-drive and come paired with a four-speed automatic, the GXP allowing a manual-shift mode.
