Perhaps the car that Pontiac is the best known for is the 1964 Pontiac GTO. For 5 years it was the top selling muscle car offered. 1974 was the last year that it was produced due to lower sales, higher fuel costs, and the market was saturated with muscle cars. However, they did bring it back in 2004 and continued to produce it until 2006.
Pontiac was a big part of the sports car world for consumers. They introduced both the Firebird and the Trans Am in 1981. They were designed to compete with the Chevrolet Camaro and the Ford Mustang. The amount of speed for the vehicles depended on the engine. The base model offered was the V6 but there were two V8 upgrade options available too.
The Pontiac Grand Prix was able to offer significant history for the company. The vehicle is a sedan and it was marketed from 1962 until 2008. There are several generations of the vehicle that include upgrades to the engine, exterior, and interior. It continues to be one of the highest selling vehicles in history due to the quality and the longevity of the model.
Today, Pontiac offers a variety of sporty sedans and SUVs that consumers are happy with. They enjoy the appearance, speed, and overall comfort. Pontiac has also continued to implement upgraded safety features into their vehicles.
