What's the difference between the Pontiac Grand Prix GT and GTP.

Postby Unorenal » Fri Mar 06, 2009 9:05 pm

I've had two Pontiac Grand Prixs in the past and they've both been SEs and once again I'm searching for another one. The Grand Prixs that I'm looking at now say either GT or GTP and I'm confused in the difference. Which one is better? Does one have something that the other doesn't?

The Wide Track Grands Prix (c. 1997 - 2003) used a 3800 V6, one of the best engines GM ever built. It was used in several models by Chevy, Pontiac, and Buick. The GTP used a supercharged version of the 3800, as did the Buick Regal (GS) and Chevy Impala (SS). The supercharged version of the car is better for a few reasons. First, they usually look better and have more standard features. Second, all supercharged 3800s used an aluminum upper intake instead of the inferior plastic one on standard V6 motors. The aluminum intakes held up better since they didn't warp or crack.



Both cars are nice choices, but I would take the GTP. The gas mileage isn't much worse, and you get anywhere from 40-60 extra horsepower.

Gtp= supercharged ( more power) Gt is just a poorly designed so called high performance car.

The GT is a naturally aspirated V6 and the GTP has the same engine with a supercharger. The GXP has a V8. So basically it's like driving the front wheel drive STS with the Northstar V8. Just hold off and pick up a year old G8. I'm migrating to Australia(where the G8 is a Holden Commodore) and I must say, there is nothing like seeing a powerful rear wheel drive sedan running neck to neck with a Corvette!
