The cooperation of these two designers have brought the vehicle immense popularity in the past and it is going to be continued for the 2016 model year as well.

The way the new 2016 Pontiac Trans Am is going to differ on the exterior is that the front end and rear end are going to be changed. There are some touches added to the look of the front fascia which is going to be remodeled and be much more aesthetically appealing than before. Some twists and turns have been made to enhance the look and the changes that are included feature a remodeling of the bumper which as the entire front fascia gains more rounded details than before. The LED lights have been changed and the positioning has been adjusted a bit as the grille is larger than before so it needed more space. The positioning of the lights and the grille is different and is much more appealing and good looking than before.

Generally speaking, Pontiac does not want to make a drastic change away from the original look. Of course this is a modern version of the car which was released so long time ago but it manages to still hold on to some of its original and trademark parts. You will notice some side arches which combine with the bumper curtains placed on the front side and result in enhancing the stability of the vehicle. The aprons that are given and the thin lip spoiler at the back also do wonders for the cars maneuvering and stabilizing. It is necessary to do so as the car can develop a high speed and you do want those wheels to grip the asphalt then.

Interior

The inside of the car is going to be sporty and elegant as always. What was a trademark characteristic of any Trans Am vehicle will be the style of the new 2016 Pontiac Trans Am car.

The seats are covered in premium leather and are stylistically very appropriate for this kind of a car.
