If the recent rumors about the 2020 Pontiac Trans Am come true one day, it would definitely be a return of a legend. Namely, the fans of such retro muscle cars are keenly waiting for the new Trans Am, especially since this model has been known for its outstanding performance.
When it comes to exterior of the 2020 Pontiac Trans Am, this powerful muscle car will most likely resemble the popular Chevrolet Camaro in so many ways. Starting from the exterior design, these two models will probably be sharing their engines and other features as well. It wouldn’t be the first time that these two brands are collaborating. Therefore, the new Trans Am will probably ride on the same platform the Camaro does. Be that as it may, the upcoming Trans Am will also wear some details seen on the iconic 1970s model. It means that the faithful fans can hope for those classic and traditional design language perfectly combined with modern and upgraded ones. It has also been speculated that the new Trans Am should wear much more aggressive and sportier styling. The carmaker will tend to keep this well-known model competitive with other high-performance legends in its class. Most of those exterior changes and improvements will probably happen around the front fascia and include a new grille, bumper and LED lighting system. Speaking of improvements, the new Trans Am should also enhance its aerodynamics and suspension system. All in all, the fans should hope for some quite refreshed, curvy and dynamic exterior design.
While the exterior design of the Subaru Impreza can mostly be guessed, the interior of this iconic vehicle has been a kind of mystery at the moment. Of course, the cabin should also combine those race-inspired and sporty features with some elegant and luxurious ones. Its sports seats should be comfortable, supportive and power-adjustable. They will probably be covered in premium leather. The carmaker will also upgrade the high-tech area and standard safety package.
Most of the recent rumors and speculations agree on one thing – the 2020 Trans Am will probably come with a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 under its hood. Although this information hasn’t been officially confirmed and neither have been the numbers and other details, the new Trans Am in its most powerful version could perhaps deliver the output of more than 600 horsepower. In fact, one possibility includes 662 horsepower and 631 pound-feet of torque while other mentions 580 horsepower and 556 pound-feet of torque. We will have to wait a bit and see ourselves. This car is expected to be paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
