2016 Pontiac Trans AM Exterior

The exterior of the 2016 Pontiac Trans Am is going to feature all the legendary parts of the 1977 version and combine them with the modern fifth-generation Camaro features. But as this is a modern version of it, the model is going to feature more rounded shapes and original details. The front end features a V-shaped nose and has a Pontiac badge and additionally combines with a twin grille and two horizontal vents in the bumper. There is a quad-headlamp configuration but this time offers rounded units, unlike the original which had square ones.

The side of the car sees most of the similarity with the legendary ’77 version transferred here. It uses the honeycomb wheels with gold highlights and has a similar front fender part. There is no wraparound windscreen though, as it is substituted with a quarter window like the Camaro has. There is a big trunk lid spoiler to the back with a wraparound bumper and wide taillights that have a horizontal cluster. There is a shaker hood and a T-top roof, which are essential parts for any Trans Am model.

Interior Changes

The inside of the 2016 Pontiac Trans Am features a completely reworked Camaro interior to fit the look of the legendary model’s one. All of the parts, like the instrument cluster, the seats, the dashboard and even other parts features the styling cues taken from the 77 model. There are some retro looking gauges which feature some Bandit graphics and in the center console you can see the Hurst shifter and some Trans Am lettering. The seats have a standard Trans Am shape and are made with a  gold center sections that comes with stitching, and detailing.

There is a cool design element added to the seats as the headrest has a Bandit graphic imprinted on it which actually looks pretty cool even though it has nothing to do with the original design. The door panels have gold “screaming chicken” graphics and the dashboard also has the gold top on it. The convince features have not been specified but as this models combines the elements taken from a Camaro car, expect to see some of them transferred form the latest Chevrolet Camaro model.

2015 Pontiac GTO

The iconic return of the 2015 Pontiac GTO is no longer a rumor nor a myth but a confirmed fact that the legend is officially back. The GTO was among the most popular American muscular car ever made and has remained the undisputed Pontiac trademark for ages. Named the ‘judge’ it has actually opened the way for many cars especially from this brand and has re-ignited the muscle car segment of the US. It is projected to hit the stands real soon which undeniably hosts some technological enhancements as well as much needed redesigns for modern looking cars. The base design has remained much the same as the 70’s model but will certainly have some add-ons for a facelift while still maintaining the traditional look and much power for power hungry fans.

The overall exterior design has still been maintained to a larger extent, at the front of the car is a split grille together with the trademark badge of the Pontiac cars and the HID headlights are positioned just below the grille. Air scoops have also been added on the hood. At the back the GTO has new tailgates, a redesigned of the hind trunk and a fabulous rear wing. At the car’s rear is a twin exhaust pipe protruding.

Interior Design

The 2015 Pontiac GTO has embraced a more traditional look good enough to maintain a competitive edge. The seats have a much more redesigned stitching away from the previous design in order to fit in the modern design dispensation. The tone inside is black with a combination of orange stitching which will prove to be quite nostalgic for GTO lovers. The comfort has not been compromised which makes the driving experience a worthy endeavor. The redesigns are much conspicuous rather than the dashboard which vaguely resembles the older one. New additions include a GPS navigation unit, custom gauges, all new touch screen display and a multifunctional steering.

For a muscle car like the 2015 Pontiac GTO then the engine should be conspicuous enough to cause a scene whenever driven. The judge does not disappoint since there is a V8 6.2L engine which has the capability of delivering 426HP which is more than enough to get this wonderful creature started. This combined with six speed gearbox, custom hydraulic roller camshafts and long tube SLP headers makes the 2015 Pontiac GTO the most hardcore car unseen nowhere before and which will leave spectators appealed.

2015 Pontiac Trans Am

What if?

Pontiac’s tradition continues this year with 2015 Pontiac Trans Am, that comes in either coupe or convertible and Firebird versions.

In this review we are going to explore the specs, interior and exterior design and pricing.

2015 Pontiac Trans Am

Exterior

The design of 2015 Pontiac Trans Am exterior is going to leave a mark. The aerodynamic mix with the appealing strength of this car are the stamp of this new age.
The greatest change, undertaken over the last year’s version, can be seen on the front fascia.

Rear and front spoilers and bumpers are going to be redesigned to be more rounded. Last year’s LED headlights are going to be bigger to fit better with the new grille. There are some insignificant changes to side sills, but only noticeable by true hardcore fan.

2015 Pontiac Trans Am rear

Aerodynamics designers did the really good job here, making an extra down force by strategically placing airbreaders and huge intakes in combination with a lip spoiler on the rear side of the vehicle.

Pontiac Trans Am is probably going to be available in 3 custom made colors: Polar White, Bermuda Blue and Goldenrod Yellow. Other colors are not going to come as basic.

Interior

Like it has become a standard, 2015 Pontiac Trans Am interior has been also equipped with fully covered high quality sport leather seats, which look really comfortable. In spite that we can spot a 60/40 difference in front seats-back seats ratio (in favor of the front seats), the rear offers a decent space. Steering wheel has also been covered with leather.

2015 Pontiac Trans Am interior

We can only speculate about the equipment that is going to have in offer. It will certainly depend on the version you choose. But what we can say for sure is that it is going to have glass roof, electric power aided steering, rear view camera, hands free, heated and ventilated seats, brake assist, airbags, stability control, antilock braking etc…

Engine of 2015 Pontiac Trans Am

2015 Pontiac Trans Am engine is going to be available in a couple of versions like Firebird, V-6 and trim versions.

The first one, basic version, has 3.7 liter V-6 engine with 305 HP and 280 lb/feet of torque. Second, Firebird, is more powerful and it has 5.0 liter V-8 engine with 420 HP and 390 lb/ft of torque.

Further improvements of the Firebird version can give you 631 lb/ft and 662 HP.
Transmission options include 6 speed automatic, Tremec 6 speed manual and basic 6 speed manual gearbox. All that depends of which version you are going to choose.

2015 Pontiac Trans Am engine

Muscle cars like this one, need power, and with that power comes great… wait no, with that power comes the hunger for fuel. It mostly depends on your engine choice, but you will get the fuel consumption between 15 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on a highway. (give or take a couple of values.)

2015 Pontiac Trans Am Price and Release Date

Nothing is certain when we talk about the 2015 Pontiac Trans Am price and release date. Simply because it has not been confirmed yet. We can only wait for the official news somewhere in May of this year when it should be officially presented. We can guess.

And the best guess is that it will cost somewhere around 45,000 dollars, depending of the modifications you choose. As the release date is considered, it would be too much to speculate.

You can dream. You can even make your dreams a reality if you are lucky. But the Internet is a place where you can make others think, that your dream, is a reality. Kids nowadays call that trolling, I call it a speculation or even a lie.

Speculation is a real word. This entire article is an interpretation of a speculation others have made. The big “what if”.

2015 Pontiac Trans Am open

We would all like that we could see a new Firebird. We would all then scream of happiness, make fireworks and enjoy in a bright future of human race!! Well I would be happy.

There are some cool pictures going all over the internet, with something you would definitely approve as the GM’s doing. But that is only a perfectly done mod for fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro.. GM had nothing to do with that.

If you don’t believe me that 2015 Pontiac Trans Am is a big hoax, then believe the official General Motors website. There is no mention of “Pontiac” in their offer. Even on Wikipedia you can see that “Pontiac” closed its factories in 2010, put a key in the lock and locked it for good.

Maybe someday, some enthusiastic genius will inspire GM with his new design of a Trans Am. Just maybe, we will be able to drive some “Firebird 2020′” and look upon the history and the time when some kid made the GM change their mind and against all odds started making Trans Am all over again…

Wouldn’t that be a thing to remember?
