Finally, the pictures and reviews that have started to emerge show us that the legendary vehicle is going to be a reality. The all new Firebird is expected to hit the market soon with some modern new features.

As it was made known, the 2017 Pontiac Firebird is going to be based on the recent Pontiac Trans Am concept which was revealed some time ago. This was a perfect starting point for redesigning this car. As the concept brought so many innovations already and a great modern new take on the Trams Am car, why not transfer it to the new Firebird. It appears that the car is taking a big turn both inside and outside and it will all be part of its new look and future design.

Pontiac was aiming for the comeback of the Firebird for some time. There are a lot of old hard core fans which will appreciate getting a car which reminds them on their youth and the way that the things were some time.

2017 Pontiac Firebird Exterior Reshaping

As they want to make the 2017 Pontiac Firebird both visually acceptable and modern enough for the current period, some alterations have been made for the exterior of it. The most important thing was to reshape the car and make it look modern. Some new design elements were used to keep the car look both fresh and keep the standard appeal of the past Firebird cars. But of course many advancements have been made in turns of making the car look acceptable to a wider audience base.

The most changes were added to the front and rear fascia. Although the 2017 Pontiac Firebird retains a lot of its familiar and well know food looks, the contemporary details manage to enhance them. The most design additions were also done to make the car as aerodynamic as possible. There is a new bumper in the front and some new LED lights have been added with restyled headlights as well. The grille design has been modified a bit but it still retains the same kind of shape that we are used to having.

The changes have been mad for the coupe and the convertible version as well. Having both is a tradition for the Firebird brand so an exception has not been made and the car will continue with the revamped design.

The collaborations brought in a lot of goodies which included muscle cars which have become legends in the automobile segment. Back in the day, the Pontiac Trans AM was simply an upgraded version of the Firebird, which meant that the vehicle had better handling, suspension, stronger engine, different hood, spoilers, bigger wheels and fog lights.

In a nut shell, when the upcoming new 2016 Pontiac Trans AM hits showrooms, you should only expect a car ‘like Camaro’, but with a cheaper price. The muscle car market has a lot of potential, and the new Trans Am will certainly be the vehicle to look out for.

The exterior will also come with a palette of colours judging from the spy pictures we have which will include white, grey and black. Moreover, following the same footsteps of its antecedent, it will come with a large eagle logo on its hood.

The car will be supported by standard 20” wheels and combining that with all the aforementioned features will give the vehicle a mature stance and an assertive demeanour.
