2005 Pontiac Grand Prix

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

The car that you drive can define so much about your personality, it can sometimes be difficult to decide what best represents you. You don't want people to take the wrong thing out of what a car says about your style, income, personality, flair and character, and some cars might deliver the wrong message.

With the 2005 model of the Pontiac Grand Prix, however, you can find yourself in a car that is both flashy and sporty in design, but understated in overpriced capabilities and specifications. At around $25,999 retail in 2005, the vehicle is one of the most common around the United States, and has proven a quality product for many.

It is available in standard red, gray, black, orange and blue, and the standard model features 200 horse power, 3.8 liter V6 engine that requires regular gas. It gets about 18-20 miles per gallon in the city, and can achieve as much as 27-30 on the highway. The car has a tapshift gear change feature, and ample front and rear headroom.

Though the city MPGs are low, and the legroom in the back is far less than in similar cars, the 2005 Grand Prix is a mid-size front wheel drive vehicle that employed the best of 2005 Pontiac technology.

It has retained value well, and has accumulated fans because of its DVD-based navigation system, single disc player, capable speakers and high comfort ratings. Not the quickest car on the market - though the GT and GTP brands are quicker - the 2005 Grand Prix is nonetheless a vehicle that can have you moving from zero to 60 faster than you will ever need to. It comes with a brand name that has been trusted in the country for years, and features the quality of American automotive making.
