Since its introduction in 2004, the G6 family has been a best seller for the Pontiac brand. In the hopes of keeping the car relevant, Pontiac has decided to give it a series of mid-cycle updates. Interestingly, the refresh also comes mid-year, so the updated G6’s will be classified as 2009.5 models.

NEW LOOK

The G6 Sedan, Coupe and Convertible will all get a redesigned front fascia inspired from the stunning G8. A new rear bumper is also a part of the package, as are redesigned headlights and taillights. An updated spoiler design will appear on all V-6 models and will continue to be an option on base models.

(The G6 GXP will remain unchanged).

NEW ENGINE OPTIONS

For 2009.5, the G6 Coupe will, for the first time, be available with the 2.4-liter Ecotec engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. This move will make the Coupe more fuel efficient, as it will match the Sedan with a 33-mpg rating. The transmission will feature Pontiac’s TAPshift manual shift system with steering wheel mounted paddles.

Pontiac will also offer a 219hp FlexFuel version of the 3.5-liter V-6 engine at no extra charge on all body styles starting in 2009.5. The 222hp 3.9-liter V-6 and 252hp 3.6-liter V-6 (GXP) remain unchanged.
