New 2017 Trans Am hybrid in the works
Pontiac’ now trademark spindle grille will feature, as confirmed by a previous teaser video that revealed the automaker’s entire lineup would eventually feature the unique grille design. And it will be joined by a more coupe-like body, improved dynamics and a richer and more upmarket feel inside the cabin.
As for the powertrain lineup, a new four-cylinder engine is expected to replace the current 2017 Trans Am Hybrid’s 2.5-liter V-6, while the newer Trans Am Hybrid should pick up the 306-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 found in the 2017 Trans Am Hybrid. Further down the track a new hybrid model will be launched, as will a high-performance Trans Am model, though it’s unclear at this point whether it will stick with a V-8 or downsize to a force-fed V-6.
