Pontiac's Grand Prix doesn't lack for wild styling. But it also promises "driving excitement," which includes a thoroughly modern platform with powerful engines, great brakes and excellent handling. The GTP version, in particular, puts enough horsepower through the front wheels to keep drivers interested and alert. Yet its price is impressively low when compared against imported sports sedans. Major changes for 2001 include a redesigned front-end appearance for the SE model, and the availability of OnStar in-car GPS communications and security system for GT and GTP versions. Also new is the "WideTrack Smart Package" for the SE sedan, which bundles a number of features into one package including a rear spoiler, special aluminum wheels, unique seat fabrics, and other interior convenience items. Finally, the GT and GTP models are offered with a "Special Edition" package that comes with exterior add-ons ? like a rear spoiler, hood bulges, and bright exhaust tips ? as well as two-tone leather seats and the requisite emblems and badges that make you think that you're buying a future collector's item.
