2018 Trans Am Preview, Review And Features

You didn't think that would be a 2018 Trans Am, Get ready to give a big warm welcome to 2018 Pontiac Trans Am concept model at next month's car gathering in Las Vegas. Based on the 2017 Camaro, the 2018 TA is stylistically inspired by the 1971 Pontiac Trans Am and comes equipped with a 455 cubic inch (that's 7.5-liters) V8 pushing out a hefty 655 horsepower and 610 lb-ft of peak torque.

The teaser renderings provide us with our first look at the 2018 Trans Am's appearance that adds a newly styled fascia and rear end along with 20-inch custom honeycomb style wheels shod in beefy tires, a hood scoop, side air vents and a sweet duck-tail spoiler to the 2017 Camaro.

The 2018 Trans Am will also feature a custom interior, which we gather will hark back to the original Pontiac Trans Am.

Although the vehicle is billed as a concept for now, we're pretty sure that if there's enough interest in the car, Pontiac will go ahead and offer the Camaro-based 2018 Trans Am for sale.
