2017 Pontiac Trans Am Review

Pontiac is one of those legendary American cars that have been with us for a few decades. There are no many cars on the market with such history and Pontiac is considered to be one of the most popular American cars ever. The 2017 Pontiac will most likely come in several different well-known trim levels such as Trans Am and Firebird. They were equipped with different engines, looked a little bit different but still they were part of the Trans family. Regardless of the model, 2017 Pontiac Trans Am will be one of the most luxurious cars in the North America.

It offers a lot to their owners but of course as every car it comes with some minor flaws. Pontiac Trans will probably come in coupe and convertible version; at least that is what is being expected.


Nothing has been announced from still defunct Pontiac, but 2017 Trans Am will probably have much better engine from competitors, with enhanced power figures that won’t let us down. However, they will not exaggerate and try to make a car with a decent EPA rating.

There are many engine units which depend on the trim level and today we will present only few of them. The base engine would be the 3.7l six-cylinder and at the same time is the least powerful unit in the offer. It can deliver 305 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. The 5.0l eight-cylinder is significantly powerful with an output of 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. However, this is not the top engine in the offer. The most powerful unit comes with the 2017 Pontiac Trans Am and it can produce staggering 662 HP and 631 lb-ft of torque! Bet you didn’t expect that!


Pontiac has always had powerful engines but this time they really took extra mile. Fuel consumption in a city will differ a lot than the one on highway, since new Trans can reach on average 15 mpg and 31 mpg, in a city and in the open road, respectively. It will come with both six-speed manual and automatic transmission system.

Engine is really astonishing but we should not neglect the design which will leave you speechless. Front part will be refreshed with slightly modified bumper. Rear bumper will change, as well. LED headlights have become standard in the car industry and Pontiac will follow this trend from now on. With all these changes the difference between Trans Am and Firebird has been reduced.


Nothing revolutionary will happen in terms of design but there is no need for a huge transformation. Leather seats are part of every Pontiac Trans and this feature won’t be changed. Standard equipment will stay pretty much the same with several upgrades and improvements. 2017 Pontiac Trans Am will offer one of the most convenient rides you will ever experience.


The Pontiac Trans Am hasn’t been with us for a few years so many would love a chance to test it on the road. With 2017 Pontiac Trans Am they will have that opportunity. The costs will not be as high as you might expect, since the pricing is expected to start at $23,000. The most expensive model, 2017 Pontiac Trans Firebird will cost around $36,000, since it will offer plenty of additional features that ordinary Pontiac Trans doesn’t have.
