The GT (and the AWD) didn't sell as well as the base FWD, so they stopped production in 2006: the 1st gen GT was available with manual transmission only and the 1st gen AWD was slightly under powered with the 1ZZ engine. Both returned in 2009 having addressed the reasons for slow sales. The 2nd gen GT got an A/T and the AWD got the 2.4l engine.JSizzle wrote:Good info. I didn't realize the GT trim wasn't available continuously throughout production. Wonder why there was a 2 year gap in 2007/8?
