The complete '06 ordering guide is now up at www.gmfleet.com. In addition to the upgrades/changes found in the earlier link, it seems that the seat travel speed has been increased in improve rear seat entry, orange gauges/stitching for Brazen Orange exterior, and silver gray gauges/stiching for the new Spice Red exterior. I also noticed that the guide has been upgraded to say that there will now be a central lock/unlock button in the center console for locking and unlocking the doors, no more messing with the door pins.

On a personal note, my Photoshops of the new colors are almost dead on compared to the pics in the guide, I'm quite happy with myself with that, lol.

I noticed that GM now allows the GTO to tow 1000 lbs. It recommends the tongue weight to be 10-15% of total weight. I wonder if GM will sell a hitch for it. It specified the LS2 engine.
I also wonder if there is a difference between the 05 and 06 that spurred GM to officially allow this.
Otherwise, there shouldn't be a reason this wouldn't also apply to the 04/LS1. The transmission (manual at least) is the same from 04 to 06. I presume the rear end is as well.

Rec'd this recently:


For the parts u require for your vehicle the lower bar garnish will cost : $108.00, the small towbar removable piece: $ 4.00, the towbar pkg itself: $ 320.00, and the price on tha harness is : $61.00. I don't know if you will need to use that and adapt it to suit your own trailers and others. The towbar itself weighs about 25kg's so it will be over $100.00 to ship it. I will get an approximate quote for u if u want to go ahead with it. All these prices are in Aust $ as i don't know the conversion rate.
Hope this info is of some help to u.
