2004-2006 Pontiac GTO Production Numbers

2004-2006 Pontiac GTO Production 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 2004-2006 Pontiac GTO production numbers and specs and options available. You can download the full version of this report for each year in .pdf format at the end of each year’s production article. I hope you find this information as interesting as I did.

 

What are the specifications on the 2004 Pontiac GTO?
You can get most of the details at http://www.pontiac.com/gto (no longer available), but it is a Rear-Wheel Drive V8. It is built in Australia and imported to the US. It is very similar, with some differences, to the RHD (right-hand drive) Holden Monaro sold in Australia and an LHD (left-hand drive) Lumina that is sold in Asia and the Middle East. It has the LS1 engine that comes standard in most Corvettes, as well as the V8 f-bodies (Camaros and Trans Ams) from 1998 on. Its 5.7 liters motor is rated at 350 hp / 365 ft-lbs 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 engine standard. Probably still not many options.

What are the stock wheel specs?
Bolt Pattern: 5x120mm
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, and 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, and 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 hurdle 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 to the Corvettes 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 at the time for the design of the GTO from the Monaro, it did not allow dual exits – or Pontiac didn’t realize how much effect this has on some muscleheads.

Note: The VY Monaro’s fuel tank location does not allow room for a passenger-side exit tailpipe
Note: Pontiac updated the exhaust in 2005, and Holden now uses the GTO style gas tank and exhaust on the 2005/2006 VZ Monaro


What are the specifications for the 2005 Pontiac GTO?
In 2005, the legendary Pontiac GTO receives performance and appearance enhancements that move GTO into an exclusive ultra-high performance category. These enhancements include:

  • A new 6.0L LS2 V8 engine that produces 400hp and a massive 395 lb.-ft. of torque
  • Bigger brakes with re-painted calipers and a GTO badge
  • Hood scoops for performance styling and enhanced engine cooling.
  • A split dual exhaust system and redesigned rear fascia to accommodate the new dual outlets.
  • Optional 18″ wheels and tires.
  • A new interior “dead” pedal.
  • The revised instrument panel features new fonts and a higher redline tachometer.
  • Regular Production Accessories were available in the fall of 2004.
  • Two new exterior colors – Cyclone Gray Metallic, and Mid-Night Blue Metalic.
  • Two deleted exterior colors – Barbados Blue Metallic, and Cosmos Purple Metallic.
  • One deleted interior color – Dark Purple

What are the specifications for the 2006 Pontiac GTO?
For 2006 Pontiac made a few cosmetic improvements to the last for this final year of this generation of the GTO. Powertrain options remained the same. Changes include:

  • The Center console has an unlock button.
  • New “darkened” tail lamps.
  • Illuminated steering wheel radio controls.
  • The revised instrument panel features new fonts and a higher redline tachometer.
  • Two new exterior colors – Brazen Orange, and Spice Red.
  • Orange instrument cluster background and orange stitching on seats, shift knob, steering wheel cover, and door armrests to match Brazen Orange exterior color.
  • Two deleted exterior colors – Yellow Jacket, Midnight Blue.

    I am helping my friend determine the rarity of his car.
    2005 GTO 6.0, Manual, Black w/ Black & Red interior, 18′ rims, Hood Scoop and the SAP package that was dealer applied. He said he believes that there were less than 500 with this package.

    Is there someplace that we can go to determine the validity of this claim.

    Thanks for your help and have a great day.

      The exact number of SAP (Sport Appearance Package) sold will be very hard to find. No production GTO’s had the SAP package included or were shipped with the package. This was strictly a dealer add-on and parts for the package could also be ordered individually. I agree that the number of GTO’s with the installed SAP package will be small. The majority of GTO owners just pieced it together with the parts they wanted. I out together information I could find by clicking here.

    I have a 2005 Impulse Blue Metallic GTO, auto transmission, blue interior, SAP package (except for rear spoiler). How rare is this car?

      According to the information I have, there were only 673 GTOs with the blue interior made. The rarity lies in the SAP package. This package was not stock and was a dealer add-on package. Not many customers of the GTO purchased this add-on. I wouldn’t doubt if there were less than 100 (Impulse Blue with blue interior, automatic) sold with the SAP package add-on. Now there were quite a few people who later added the SAP parts as the parts could be purchased separately back then. Grills, Front SAP Facia, side skirts, spoiler.

    2005 and 2006 GTO auto’s had the 4L65E. And yes there is a difference. 4L65E have stronger internal parts, 5 pinion planet vs 4 and other hardened internals also a 6 bolt housing vs 4 bolt. I run 600 plus HP thru mine with a 2800 stall convertor and never had a problem racing it.

    1. Great catch. I have made the proper adjustments to reflect the 4L65E transmission was in fact used on the 2005-2006 Automatic vehicles. Thank you for the information.

    I have a 2005 gto torrid red red interior auto with the 17 inch chrome wheel option. Only 17 were built but how many were red/red automatics

    1. According to the information I was provided, there were 472 vehicles produced with that combination.

    I have a 2004 yellow jacket 6 speed manual. The hood has scoops. It is not flat and I was told the late year production units got the 05 hoods.? Can anyone verify that and how many? Good luck and thank you

    1. To the best of my knowledge, no 2004 Pontiac GTO’s came with the ram air hood. If you purchased the vehicle used, more than likely the previous owner had a 2005-2006 Pontiac GTO Ram Air hood put on to replace the factory hood. I would check the FaceBook GTO groups and GTO Forums to verify this as well. It is very common for the 2004 GTO owners to replace the flat hood for the ram air hood. I did this myself on my 2004 Pontiac GTO.

    WE have a 2006 gto red 3400 miles. automatic 18 ln. wheels. I know it can run a low 13 even a high 12. what is my car worth? It is like the day it was made. everything on The came on the car.

    1. Sounds like a great vehicle. I’m sure you can get a feel for what the car is worth by joining one of the many FaceBook 2004-2006 Groups. In my opinion, and this is just my opinion, the car should easily be worth between $25k-$28k. I say this based on the current situation of used cars. Both used and new cars are in high demand due to the global microchip shortage. It could be worth more or less depending on the area you live in. Prices are always based on supply and demand.

      Thanks for the comment and for visiting my website.

    Pontiac has been down too long . The GTO , Trans Am and G8 GXP could compete with Dodge and their performance cars easily. Chevolet Camaro is trying however Dodge is improving every year with choices of performance options for their buyers . While Chevolet is still pushing 6.2 with less HP costing a lot more . Pontiac division can make a come back ! GM make a move or you will loose to Dodge in all areas !

  9. 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.
