2004-2006 Pontiac GTO Production Specs & Numbers

Ever wonder how many of your 2004-2006 Pontiac GTO’s were made? How about the number of exterior color options as well as interior options? Below you will find the factory production numbers and specs for the 2004-2006 Pontiac GTO. You can download the full version of this report in .pdf format at the bottom of the post. The download version is in chart form and much easier to understand. I hope you find this information as interesting as I did.

 

2004 Pontiac GTO Production Numbers: Total units built – 15,740

What are the spec’s on the 2004 Pontiac GTO?
You can get most of the details at www.pontiac.com/gto – but it’s a RWD V8. It is built in Australia and imported to the US. It is very similar – with some differences – to the RHD Holden Monaro sold in Australia and a LHD Lumina that is sold in Asia and the Middle East. It has the LS1 that comes standard in most Corvettes – as well as the V8 f-bodies (Camaros and Trans Ams) from 1998 on. It’s 5.7 liters – rated at 350 hp / 365 ft.lb’s of torque. This seems to be an actual rating and not underrated like the f-bodies are. The current deal to import the GTO is limited to 18,000 cars per year for 3 years (MY 2004-2006). Speculation is ’05 gets hood scoops, dual exhaust outlet and LS2 standard. Probably still not much options.

Official General Motors Card Spec Sheet For 2004 Pontiac GTO

What are the stock wheel specs?
Bolt Pattern: 5×120.0mm
Offset: +48mm
Hub Diameter: 69.6mm

What are the options available for the GTO?
You can get a 4 speed automatic or for $695 you can get the Tremec 6 speed manual. The A4 gets the gas guzzler tax so is actually more expensive. There are 7 color options – six with multiple interior color options:

 Phantom Black Metallic – black or red leather
 Torrid Red – black or red leather
 Quicksilver Metallic – black or red leather
 Impulse Blue Metallic – black or blue leather
 Barbados Blue Metallic – black leather
 Cosmos Purple – purple leather
 Yellow Jacket – black leather
Everything else is standard. Power locks and windows, AC, Blaupunkt 200W 10-speaker sound system, leather buckets front and rear, P245/45 ZR17 W-rated performance tires are some highlights.

What are the performance numbers for the GTO?
Pontiac quotes 0-60 mph in 5.3s for the M6 and 5.4s for the A4. SLP that makes performance upgrades has turned a 13.14s @ 106.97 ¼ mile with a bone stock M6 GTO.

Some time has passed, this FAQ was first written before most people even had their GTO’s let alone raced them. A good bolt on/tuned 04 GTO can run high 12’s. Auto’s are faster than the manual trans cars which suffer more from wheel hop at launch. We have seen stock chassis GTO’s already in the 9’s. Hopefully as time goes along we can get past the IRS hurtle and have a ton of 11 second naturally aspirated GTOs out there.

Does the GTO come with the LS6 block?
Yes. At this point, they don’t appear to be casting the original LS1 blocks anymore. The GTO has the LS6 block and intake manifold, with the LS1 heads and cam. There is some debate whether the cam is identical as the ‘vettes and f-bodies. At this point, any printed information I’ve found shows them identical, but that may not be the case.

Does the GTO have a true dual exhaust and why does it only exit on one side then?
The GTO indeed has a true dual system – with no crossover pipe. The pictures appear to have a crossover, but it is solid and no gases pass through. The general consensus is that the time for design of the GTO from the Monaro did not allow dual exits – or Pontiac didn’t realize how much affect this has on some muscleheads. *Note – The VY Monaro’s fuel tank location does not allow room for a passenger side exit tail pipe *Note – Pontiac updated the exhaust in 2005, and Holden now uses the GTO style gas tank and exhaust on the 2005/2006 VZ Monaro

  1. considering picking on up with low-ish miles……any factory issues I should watch it for??

    1. Hi there and thanks for the visit, and the question.

      Suspension on these cars could be better. Can be easily fixed, especially replacing the radius rod bushings. Stock ones give extreme front wheel vibration. Power door locks also seem to be a common problem. Sticking, not working in rain or cold weather. Other than that, the LS1 engine is a beast and very easy to work on. The transmissions seem to hold up extremely well. I personally think you would have alot of fun with the car and it would be one of the best values as far as how much performance you get for the price.
