The rumors about the newest Pontiac have been more and more frequent recently. Well, according to our sources, it seems that Pontiac is everything but dead. In fact, it will offer a perfect combination of vintage and next-generation features in one car – the 2018 Pontiac 69 GTO Judge.
When it comes to exterior of the 2018 Pontiac 69 GTO Judge, we have already mentioned that it will keep most of its traditional retro features, but it will also perfectly combine them to some updated and modern ones. This kind of combination will be very attractive to both – the older faithful customers and the new younger buyers. Speaking of exterior design, some experts and fans would say that this model wears some hints from Chevy Camaro as well as the latest Pontiac Firebird. Be that as it may, the new Judge is definitely most inspired by the original ’69 GTO Judge. Its front fascia will get sharper and more aerodynamic appearance. You will notice the mesh grille consisting of two parts. The headlights will remain classis. The rear end of this vehicle should be a bit raised off the ground. You will find redesigned taillights in the back as well as a rear spoiler placed on the trunk. The 2018 GTO Judge should be standing on a new set of alloy wheels. We expect more information about its appearance soon.
We believe that the interior of the 2018 Pontiac 69 GTO Judge should perfectly match its powerful muscle exterior design. As far as we have been informed, only the convertible version of this model has been discussed, but Pontiac might offer another one as well. Inside its cabin you will find wide leather seats that can perfectly accommodate up to four adult passengers. The seats will be covered in fine red leather that will be combined with black and grey details. Pontiac will use other high-quality materials to furnish the cabin. The driver can expect a leather-wrapped steering wheel and numerous updates in terms of technology.
The fans have probably been mostly interested in what kind of engine and how much power the 2018 Pontiac 69 GTO Judge will offer. Although these options have not been confirmed yet, a rumor has it that those could be either a 6.8-liter or a 7.0-liter engine that should deliver about 450 horsepower and more than 500 pound-feet of torque. However, the new GTO Judge is planned to wear something more powerful than a 6.2-liter V8, possibly a 7.4-liter V8. That kind of engine is expected to hit over 840 horsepower.
2018 Pontiac 69 GTO Judge Release Date and Price

It has been said that this model could belong to a limited edition of perhaps 150 or 200 units, but this information has not been confirmed either. All we know is that you should be ready to pay at least $115,000 for this muscle beauty.
