The new GTO is a new take on the classic sports car. The new GTO is based on the current generation of FordMustangs and Mustang GTs and was designed to be the most powerful Mustang ever built.
The new GTO is based on the current generation of Mustangs, including the Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT500. The body style will be similar to those models with some unique details, such as a modified grille, headlights that are slightly lower than on other Ford vehicles, and a spoiler mounted above the rear window.
The powertrain comes from Mustang’s 5.2-liter V8 engine, which produces more than 500 horsepower and 526 pound-feet of torque in its standard form. A higher-performance version will be available later this year with more power, greater fuel efficiency and improved handling characteristics.
Is Pontiac Making A New GTO?
No, Pontiac will not be making a new GTO. The company has been selling the last version of its muscle car for more than 15 years, and it has done very well with it.
The original GTO was launched in 1963 and was available as a coupe or convertible. It was powered by a 455-cubic-inch V-8 engine that produced 375 horsepower and could reach 60 mph in 7 seconds.
The GTO remained in production until 1978 when Ford bought out General Motors’ division, which resulted in the creation of the Ford Thunderbird and Mercury Cougar nameplates.
Pontiac made one last effort to revive the GTO nameplate with an all-new model in 1983, but sales were not enough to make up for the loss of market share caused by competition from other American muscle cars like Dodge’s Challenger and Plymouth’s Road Runner models and new import cars like Honda CRXs, Toyota Celicas and Mazda RX-7s.
A new generation of Pontiac GTOs will never be created because there are no plans to sell them under Pontiac’s own nameplate brand again anytime soon.
The Bottom Line
Overall I am very excited about my new GTO. It’s comfortable, has a good sound system and I love the performance with the 3.6 engine. I’m looking forward to some road trips this summer!
