The G6 was a successful-selling vehicle, selling above 100,000 from 2005 to 2008. The G6 was discontinued along with the entire Pontiac lineup following the shutdown of the Pontiac brand. The G6 would also prove to be the last model ever made for the Pontiac brand, as the very last U.S. built Pontiac vehicle rolled off on November 25, 2009.
According to the G6's Wikipedia page, "its name derives from being the successor to the Pontiac Grand Am, and serves as the "sixth generation" of the Grand Am, hence G6. The name change from Grand Am to G6 was implemented to help reposition Pontiac as a rival to BMW, and served as a standard for most future models. For example, the Pontiac G8 was a class above the G6, while the Pontiac G5 was a class below. The nomenclature also hearkens back to the Pontiac 6000, another midsize car."
