I'm a new member from Iowa. I enjoy the GTO Forum. I am currently driving a GMC Envoy that is a fine vehicle but doesn't turns me on. I would prefer a Corvette but my wife loves her VW Beetle and I need a back seat. It seems a nice compromise to buy a GTO with Vette power and great appeal.

I'm wondering as to the difference between the '04 and '05 GTO except the cool hood scoops? I'm also wondering the type of gas mileage obtained when actually trying to get good mileage and not driving for FUN?

Any help for me?

Thanks,
RKeller

04 has a 5.7L 350hp LS1 engine, while the 05/06 has a 6.0L 400hp LS2

05/06 has split dual exhaust, 04 does not (has dual, but not split)

05/06 has a cool bumper, 04 does not

05/06 has a dead pedal, 04 does not

both kick LOTS of ass

NT has it right -

My adds:
I think the 04 rear bumper is cool, just not as cool as the 05/06
The O6 has a power door lock switch in the console.
The 06 has lighted steering wheel audio controls.

The GTO in general has some of the best build quality in the entire GM lineup, Vette included. It has a distinctly "I am not a GM product" look and feel to it.

Mileaage - mine is a manual, I am getting 12.5 in town and 22 on the road. I drive like a grumpy old man.

This one 4 sale has a sunroof. Can the body structure of the GTO with the LS-2 handle the torque when you cut out a sunroof?:confused
I thought that was a problem from things I read on forums,
however, the sunroof was offered as an option on the LS2
HSV holden model in Australia...So, I think we just got cheated
in GM's shortsighted rush to bring our cars to market...Aftermarkets
are available in the US from the same manufacturer that makes
the Holden optioned sunroof. Can't remember the name right
now...Do a thread search here or on www.ls2gto.com if you want.
The info is there somewhere. :cheers
