Ever since Pontiac’s G6 Coupe and Convertible made their debut in 2006, they have carried a 3.5 liter V6 engine. Back then the Pontiac G6 used to make close to 200-hp. Today the car makes a total of 252-hp with an estimated fuel-economy of 18/26 mpg (city/highway).
Now in a time where consumers are favoring fuel-economy over power, GM has decided to add a new SE model to the G6 lineup which currently consists of the GT and GXP. The new SE model will be powered by a 2.4L Ecotec 4-cylinder unit producing 164-hp with a maximum torque of 156 lb-ft. It will be mated to a 6-speed automatic as standard.
Other changes for the new 4-cylinder model include a revised front fascia with a square-ish grille and a revised air dam. GM will announce official details very soon.
