According to the latest news, the 2021 Pontiac Trans Am will not be produced and most of the rumors are based on the 2021 Trans Am model. The Trans Am represents a modern sequel of legendary Firebird, which is one of the iconic model’s in the United States.
If you didn’t know, Pontiac has been shut down and it is unlikely that GM will ever return this brand. The last Pontiac model was built in December 2009 and is released in January 2010. After that, Franchise agreements for Pontiac dealers expired on October 31, 2010. However, Trans Am Worldwide still produces some performance models in limited series. Basically, the company release several models every two years and the new 2021 Trans Am will be one of them.
So, Will There Be a New 2021 Trans Am?
Yes, Trans Am Worldwide launches several models every two years. As they presented their latest models in 2019, we can expect new versions in the following year. Trans Am is one of the models that will be redesigned and it will be more aggressive than before. We have some rendering photos and we are looking at a perfect looking sports car.
Actually, the upcoming 2021 Trans Am is wearing the same silhouette from the original model. However, the front of this car is looking completely new. The exterior is really good looking and we can see a more curved angle and a new pair of LED headlights. As for the back of the car, we can see many improvements. The most noticeable is the new exhaust system and tri-horizontal LED lines.
Still no Word of Interior Redesign
Right now, there are no renderings nor the spy shots of the cabin. However, if we relied on many speculations, this model will continue to be offered with recognized traditional interior design. It would be interesting to see a mix of original and modern additions. From many reports, a cabin will be simple and the manufacturer will use many more techs.
The Trans Am company, which makes modifications, will borrow many upgrades from the legendary Camaro. For example, the cockpit will be more sporty, and this model will host a comfortable steering wheel. Besides, we can expect maximum comfort for all passengers and plenty of safety.
2021 Trans Am Powertrain Rumors
Under the hood of the 2021 Trans Am is massively powerful V8 engines that are a part of the Super Duty Package. From the latest information, this model will use a more robust, naturally aspirated 7.5-liter V8 version as an option.
Besides this optional powertrain, the base model will probably be powered by a proven 6.2-liter LT1 V8 with a 2.3-liter Magnuson supercharger. These engines should provide plenty of grunts.
How Much Is a New Trans Am?
The release date and price of the 2021 Trans Am is not yet revealed. However, depending on the powertrain and equipment level, the price will vary. When it comes to production, the manufacturer is planning to make only 77 vehicles. From some unverified reports, the basic version will start at $105,000, and can easily reach 200k with a full level of equipment. More about its price and equipment will be known once this model reaches the market.
