2015 Pontiac Trans Am changes
The biggest change for the 2015 Pontiac Trans Am (compared to the 2014) model is its front fascia. Tiny twists have been made to the rear and front bumpers, and they have been aesthetically improved by incorporating a more befitting rounded shape. The vehicles LED headlights have been changed (due to new trends by Pontiac) by increasing the width to be placed next to the grille. Well concealed and camouflage, the vehicle’s side sills have also been restyled. The quarter panel badge at the front has also been modified. With all these modifications, the 2015 Pontiac Trans Am almost looks the same as the 2015 Firebird. Do not expect anything revolutionary in this segment since Pontiac surely wants this model to stay true to its origins and will draw inspiration from previous version.
Air curtains placed on the front bumper combined with air breathers on the front arches enhance stability by pushing air out of the wheel wells, whereas the front apron huge intakes move air through and around the vehicle to produce down force. A lip spoiler at the rear adds an equivalent amount of down force at the vehicle’s back and this is something that you really need if you want those wheels to be firmly connected to the asphalt. Inside, the leather bucket-style Sport seats look quite comfortable and, while the rear seats spot a 60/40 split. Characteristic style touches in the 2015 Pontiac Trans Am are leather-covered steering wheel, round instruments with white graphics as well as door sills.
