GL = Base Technically, has 2.0 engine
SE has same 2.0 engine but has more options. Most obviously has a different front end.
GT has the 2.5 engine and has complete appearance package.
GTS is a GT with chrome swirlies and stripes.


There are some oddities, i.e. in 93 I hear there were some SEs with base bumper covers.

Mine is a base for sure though. Although I have more options than I've ever seen on any GT. :s5

I'm not so sure that the SE got any extra options, with the exception of the exterior package.
The SE was just an appearance package as far as I know, and you could still get leather, sunroof, etc in a Base.

Best way to describe:

1st Gen (89-92)
LX- 3.0L V6
GL- 2.2L 4cyl 12valve
GT- 2.2L Turbo 4cyl 12valve

2nd Gen (93-97)
Base (No letter designation)- 2.0L 4 cyl 16 Valve
SE- 2.0L 4cyl 16 Valve w/more options and styling(not offered in 97)
GT- 2.5L V6 24 Valve
GTS- 2.5L V6 24 Valve w/ Appearance options (Stripes etc..,) (Only offered in 97)

Pretty simple....
You can probably check www.edmunds.com for more details....

Not true!! I have more options in my base then some GT owners!!! It was all about what the people ordered when the car was purchased! I have power everything ecept seats! Sun roof! Map light! premium sound with amp! No sub! arm rest with cup holder! leather wrapped shift nob! on and on! It was just what the person orded! belive me there I GT's that don't have the leather wrapped shift nob I have one and I have a base!! its just about what people orded! but as far as telling them apart!
base has the big orange lights
SE/GT share the same front bumper cover and side moldings that the base owners don't have.

People seem to have trouble with this but its not all that hard.

The first generation Probes came in three trim levels as follows:

GL - 2.2L I-4 12 valves. Your basic Probe.
LX - 2.2L I-4 12 valve in 1989
3.0L V-6 12 valve in 1990-1992 (Ford Vulcan 3.0L from Taurus)
GT - 2.2L 12 valve Turbo I-4 89-92.

Most options were available on all years. The GT's came standard with aluminum rims and more ground fx.


Second Generation Probes really came in two trim levels, base and GT with an "SE" option for the base.

The GT had the 2.5L Mazda 24V V6. It came with ground FX, different front and rear bumpers, and 16 inch aluminum wheels. All other options were extra cost options.

Base 1993-1996 2.0L I-4 engine, rounded front bumper
Base with SE package 1993-1996 had different appearances, some '93's had the round bumper but nearly all had the GT bumper. Some 93 and 94 had the GT ground fx on the side. All came with three spoke 15 inch aluminum rims.

1997 was slightly different. The SE option package was dropped, effectively making 2.0L Probes base cars. However, the rounded front bumper was also dropped, putting the SE/GT front bumper on all Probes. The 15 inch 3 spoke wheels were a stand alone option. With the wheels, there is no difference between a 97 Probe and a 96 SE except for the lack of SE stickers.

I guess my point is there is nothing special about the SE, and it was infact a factory option like ordering power windows, air conditioning or a better stereo. So it wasn't even really an actual trim level like the GT or the old GL to LX step from the first generation.

Thats basically what I said.... except not as detailed and I didnt know the 89 LX had a 4cyl in it....
