Currently all the available information’s about the 2015 Pontiac Trans Am are from rumors. Even these information’s we are delivering here are from pretty reliable source we need to say that it should be taken with caution since there are still no official details about this highly popular model.
When we take a look at the amount of popularity and attention that it attracts it is quite understandable that there is so many rumors about it. As a result it is possible to see it delivered to the market by Pontiac. Images that we are getting here are of the all new model and it is quite obvious that it will stay true to the original design but will bring modern accents. Iconic status for Trans Am or Firebird was gained during 1970’s when pure muscle cars were much more appreciated.
Few years after the production was halted we could see many displeased customers that really wanted this model to come back into production but that did not happen, something similar was offered but not the original and true Trans Am. Chevrolet retrofitted Camaro model which came with similar design language like the original version but still it did not manage to attract enough buyers to the brand to be cost effective.
Rumors About 2015 Pontiac Trans Am
One of the most speculated segment of the 2015 Pontiac Trans Am is the engine department. Reports and rumors say that there could be both supercharged and turbocharged units offered in the lineup but there are still no confirmations about these possibilities. To stay true to the roots of this model we do expect that at least one large naturally aspirated unit will be offered, as a result this muscle car will come as a great choice to many potential buyers.
Base models will most likely come with 3.7 liter V6 units that should pump out slightly above 300 hp. Those that want more power without turbochargers or superchargers will need to opt for the 5.0 liter V8 engine which could be tuned to bring even more than 420 hp and more than 410 lb-ft of torque.
Specs And Engine
Turbocharged units will come in 2.7 liter and 3.5 liter displacement, first one will most likely be inline four while the second one could be the V6 version. Power should go from 300 to 420 hp or even slightly higher depending on the tune state. Most powerful could be the 5.0 liter supercharged V8 engine that according to reports could push out even more than 550 hp. There are also information’s that the twin turbo unit might come to the market but at this point there are no details about it.
With the color choice on the images of this 2015 Pontiac Trans Am we are getting combination that could be slightly more extreme than many drivers will agree to get. Screaming Chicken certainly announces the power and performances that are delivered from the engine under the hood but it is a good question how many drivers will opt for this type of hood. More traditional color options like gold, white, black and silver could be choice for much larger number of buyers.
2015 Pontiac Trans Am Price
Things that we still waiting to find out include the price and official release date. Rumors suggest that the price will be about $23,000 and it needs to be in this region so that it could compete with Mustang which is one of the biggest competitors. Potential release date that was mentioned in rumors is late this year or the beginning of the next year. We do expect to see additional details delivered in the next few months.
