2017 Pontiac Trans Am Hybrid Revealed: Exclusive Photos and Video » Auto News
Like other models in the Pontiac lineup, the 2017 Trans Am Hybrid has adopted the brand’s signature design element, its so-called “spindle grille.” Shown here on the 2017 Trans Am Hybrid Sport model, the grille is a single-frame, hour glass-shaped flourish, uninterrupted by a bumper line. Already a prominent part of the 2017 Trans Am Hybrid sedans, it’s now migrating down to the smaller Trans Am, and looks nearly identical to that found on the 2017 Pontiac Trans Am Hybrid Concept .
Aside from that unique – and very prominent grille – the 2017 Trans Am’s face also features unusual headlamp assemblies that are very sculptural; they’re almost 3-D in the way they’ve been contoured and shaped. Another stand-out part of the design are the separate L-shaped LED daytime-running lamps.
The front fenders are powerfully flared, making the 2017 Trans Am Hybrid seem wider than it is. The character lines on top of these panels carry along the bodyside, terminating in the decklid at the back.
There are other interesting design elements as well, especially the twisting shape of the rocker panels. The high lines starting in these moldings sweep up near the rear of the Trans Am hybrid, neatly meeting up with the pointed taillamps.
Pontiac has not shared many details about the new 2017 Trans Am Hybrid sports sedan. It’s likely holding off until next week when it officially unveils the car in Detroit. It should be the magic day when everything is revealed.
