It has been mentioned and rumored for years now, but it appears that this time these roomers will be confirmed and supposedly a brand spanking new 2017 Pontiac Trans AM, will be hitting the streets during the second half of this year.
Weather it is just, “keeping the buzz alive” or not, we still cannot confirm but more and more information is surfacing pointing out that Pontiac is getting things ready to present the new model of the legendary muscle car that have been away for a while now.
We all know that the new vehicle has to differ from the old one, since times have changed drastically and the regular consumer now wants much more than just a big 7.0 liter V-8 engine and a 6-speed transmission, no sir, nowadays sports cars are equipped with limited slip differentials, smart adjustable traction controls, adjustable dampers and much much more electronic aids and tricks to make the car faster and more fun.
For example, the new Mustang comes with the trick of locking the front wheels in order to execute the perfect burnout every time you want to do it, so something similar is to be expected on the new Trans AM as well if it wants to be a proper threat in its class.
The inside has to feature all sorts of electronics as well, since we all like out new cars to have an infotainment system with gadgets that support our smartphones via Bluetooth, and other amenities, and this one will not be any different, so with the price tag of $40K it appears you wont be getting “four wheels and an engine”, you will get a modern muscle car, filled with cool gadgets.
The exact date of when this vehicle will hit the streets still remains a mystery but we promise to update you as soon as we find out more about it.
