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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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”.
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?
