I just traded up from my GLi with 240,000 to the Fairmont Ghia 140k. I noticed that the Ghia seems alot quicker off the line than the GLi but it also rev's slighty higher at 100kmh. The gli was around 1800rpm, the ghia just under 2k. i know the ghia has the xr6 engine instead of the stocko 6, but does it take on different diff ratio's or any thing else? just wondering is all.

Probably would have a 3.45 lsd in the ghia, and a 3.27 or 3.08 open wheeler in the gli, also the el ghia will have speed sensitive steering, climate, abs power everything the the gli doesnt get.

Rollin’s car appears again :thup: I can’t wait to see what it will look like with 18” chromes on it! The speed sensitive intermittent wiper feature is very handy! There are lots of little cool features on the Ghia.
Check this out for specs.
