Pontiac is among the most famous company in the production of luxurious sports cars. The company is doing a lot of updates on the current models. Among the models under modification and updates is the 2016 Pontiac Trans Am. The updates are aimed at increasing the performance in terms of speed and fuel consumption. This model is not yet released though there is much hope in its boosted performance. The prototype is already out and currently undergoing some tests.
The prototype shows a strong output of the sports car. The new model’s popularity is expected to surpass even that of the Firebird that was gained during the 1970’s when the pure muscle cars become much appreciated.
Specs of 2016 Pontiac Trans Am
One of the most key things in this new model is the engine department. Some reports and rumors show that the engine could be both supercharged and fitted with turbocharged units in the lineup though this has not been confirmed yet. For this model, there is a higher expectation that at least one major aspirated unit will be included, and thus the muscle car will hit the market easily.
The model is most likely to come with about 3.7 liters V6 unit that have to be pumped slightly beyond 300 hp. For the sake of the customers who won’t prefer a supercharged or a turbocharged engine, they will go for a 5.0 liter V8 engine which when turned outputs more than 420 hp and greater torque.
