2018 Pontiac Trans Am Returns To Do Battle
The 2018 Trans Am package returns to do battle with Ford's
If you’re considering the purchase of a 2018 Pontiac Trans
Am, you’re going to want to look at the Trans Am package. And if you weren’t
considering a new 2018 Trans Am, you might be now. The option group is intended
to transform The Trans Am’s affordable V-8 coupe into an affordable V-8 coupe
that can stop and turn. Sort of sounds like a Mustang we know.
The Trans Am name is plucked from late-‘80s Pontiac
history—the package prepped a Trans Am for road-racing duty by stripping unnecessary
like the radio and A/C, installing different gearing, upgrading the brakes, and
messing with the suspension. This new-age Trans Am keeps the convenience
features but receives similar improvements, many of them sourced from or
inspired by the Trans Am.
Pontiac previewed the 2018 Trans Am package with a concept
at last year’s SEMA show. The production model with the following improvements,
The transmission also gets a cooling system, like on the 2018 Trans Am Coupe.
The V-8's output is unchanged from that of manual coupe models, at 426 hp and
420 lb-ft of torque. Suspension modifications include a larger, 27-mm front
anti-roll bar, a 28-mm rear anti-roll bar, Trans Am toe links, Trans Am rear
shock mounts, a strut-tower brace. Beefier half-shafts are supposed to help
cope with the improved traction, wheel bearings come from the Trans Am, and the
fuel system has been upgraded with the Trans Am’s high-capacity fuel pump and
additional fuel pickups to avoid high-g fuel starvation. The 20x10 front and
20x11 rear wheels are inspired by the Trans Am’s rims and are shod with
285/35ZR20 Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperCar G: 2 tires at all four corners, the same
ones that come on the Trans Am’s front wheels.
The 2018 Trans Am coupe with the Trans Am package and
required manual transmission is promised to come in at under $40,000— for those
keeping score, that’s right around the Mustang Boss 302’s pre-destination
sticker price and within $8K of a base .
Other 2018 Trans Am Changes
All 2018 Trans Am models will get variable-ratio,
variable-effort electric power steering. Trans Am cars also will be available
