Without a doubt we can agree that American classic cars are among the most popular in the car industry and because of that we could hear many news about the possibility that some of these will return to the market. One of the latest reports that we have received is about the 2015 Pontiac GTO and this is a real treat.
Production of this model originally started all the way back in 1964 but was discontinued after about 10 years. It returned for a few years after 2004th but did not last long and we think that one of the main reasons this was not such a great success like it was the case with cars before is the fact that it did not share enough similarities with the original version that was successful for many years. What we could hear is that this will be corrected with the delivery of new vehicle.
Looking at the images we have here it is easily to notice that the new version will be quite similar to the original and that is something that many drivers will appreciate. Just like in case with few other classic cars that are getting new models the 2015 Pontiac GTO will offer modern and hi-tech features plus many improvements in almost all segments but everything will be packed in a recognizable body.
At the front we are getting integrated headlights into large grille that is splited with large nose while the two smaller grilles are in the bottom segment with fog lights right beside those. On the hood we have two hood scopes that will allow better air supply to the engine bay so that it can always keep the optimal temperature and provide more air to the engine. From the side we are getting modern lines and large wheels that look impressive no matter if the car is parked or driven. Back segment has been changed in many ways but still is true to the original where it offers large tail lights with stripes.
Information’s about the interior are still not offered but expectations are that it will be sportier then before and that we will be getting more tech so it could compete with similar cars on the market. For the return of this iconic model we do expect to see high quality materials used and leather trim will be offered even on the base version. Things like navigation screen, automatic climate control, heated and ventilated seats and similar will be either standard or optional.
Specs Of 2015 Pontiac GTO
Just like always, the most important thing with a vehicle of this type is the engine. Currently rumors are only available for the 2015 Pontiac GTO but we know for sure that V8 HEMI unit will be offered. Previous generation was offered with 6.0 liter version that offered 400 hp and similar powerplant is expected for the new model but with a lot more power. Second set of rumors suggest that there will be few units to choose from and that those will include V6 and V8 engines that will bring from 320 all the way up to 600 hp.
2015 Pontiac GTO Price
It would be best to leave discussion about the price for a later date when we get more details about 2015 Pontiac GTO but we can speculate now. For this car to be competitive it needs to stay in $28,000 to $32,000 base price range. Have in mind that this is a classic model and that it will bring combination of modern technology and iconic looks. As a result price of more than $50,000 or even $60,000 could be seen on higher trim levels.
As soon as we get more information’s about the 2015 Pontiac GTO we will offer that right here. Launch is expected in the next few months, most likely at the beginning of the next year but at this point we are not sure if it will be delivered as a 2015th or 2016th model.
