Press Release :
For those seeking a sporty option to traditional luxury, thereâs only one real choice: Pontiac Bonneville. Bonneville delivers driving excitement to owners whose youthful outlook on life requires a vehicle with an optimal balance of sport and luxury. Bonneville changes for 2003 help increase comfort and listening pleasure.
New leather seats refine Bonneville with a smooth, sleek, more stylish appearance. Standard bucket seats on the Bonneville SSEi now include power lumbar and power recliner controls on the driverâs seat. The package includes front leather seating surfaces, a center console storage with rear heating/cooling outlets and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls.
The 2003 Bonneville also offers XM Satellite Radio as an option on all models. XM radio features 100 coast-to-coast digital channels, including 71 music channels (more than 30 of them commercial-free) from hip-hop to opera, classical to country, bluegrass to blues and 29 channels of sports, talk, childrenâs and entertainment programming. XM also brings to the car, for the first time on radio, a diverse selection of 24-hour news sources previously available only in the home. XMâs next-generation sound quality technology provides superior sound remarkably close to compact disc.
Bonneville is available in three models â SE, SLE and SSEi â each with a high level of standard equipment that emphasizes comfort, convenience and security.
The base model is the Bonneville SE. It combines the performance of the 3800 3.8L Series II V6 (205 hp and 230 lb-ft of torque) with room to comfortably transport five or six passengers. This well-equipped vehicle offers standard features like driver- and front-passenger air bags, manual front air conditioning, a floor console and electronic cruise control. Bonneville SE also features power door locks, carpeted front and rear floor mats, full instrumentation, remote keyless entry, rear-seat passthrough, an AM/FM stereo with a single-disc CD player, a theft-deterrent alarm system, a tire-inflation monitor and power windows with express-down feature for the driver and front passenger.
Bonneville SE owners who prefer a higher level of content in their vehicle will find SEâs 1SC Preferred Equipment Group (PEG) ideally suited to their needs. It adds the 3.05 performance axle ratio, one year of OnStar, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, all-speed traction control, a six-way power driverâs seat and front leather seating surfaces to the base PEG.
Compared to the base SE, Bonneville SLE adds a driver information center, one year of OnStar Safe & Sound service, 17-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels, all-speed traction control, sport, blue-tint, power, heated exterior mirrors, a 3.05 performance axle ratio and a rear deck spoiler.
For the ultimate in luxurious performance, thereâs Bonneville SSEi. The 3800 SC Supercharged Series II V6 engine delivers 240 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. Other features include driver and front-passenger side-impact air bags, dual-zone climate control with individual climate settings for the driver and front passenger, SSEi-specific carpeted front and rear floor mats, a trunk cargo net, Magnasteer variable-assist power steering and StabiliTrak.
The Bonneville color palette adds Steel Blue Metallic, Rainforest Green Metallic and Sport Red Metallic for 2003.
