2018 Pontiac GTO is not a newcomer. This car has been presented by GM as an iconic muscle car. It was discontinued because Camaro created better sales than it and GM didn’t necessary to produce this muscle car. It was revived in the middle of 2000s and it was renamed as Holden Monaro with the different logo as well. We thought that the car was great but the old design was the main issue. In 2013, Bob Lutz mentioned that GM will prepare new GTO since Pontiac has been discontinued, but this report was only informed by rumors.

It will be an odd move if the company wants to revive it and it should be more than just a sports car. It must be close to what the FCA Group will do for their Dodge. It will be built from its ground up with the platform from Alpha. It means the new 2018 Pontiac GTO will be a rear-wheel drive car with its modular platform to make it runs fast.

To deal with the competitive market, 2018 Pontiac GTO will come out with very good cabin design and it is expected to attract American market really well. Although we didn’t see any concept yet, it seems that this car will go with a new design to be the base for its next models, after it is long discontinued. The cabin will get the sporty design and luxury touch that you can find in Cadillac models.

To battle with its rivals, the company wouldn’t release it like Camaro, the all-out sports car. 2018 Pontiac GTO might use some engines but we would love it if there will be all new 4.8 liters and twin turbocharged V8 engine that is capable of providing the amount of output about 500 hp as well as 500 lb-ft of torque. This is enough to complete the demand of European sports car. Since it is expected to be a long distance cruiser, it is possible to have a ten-speed auto gearbox and rear wheel drive system to provide speed and comfort.

The price of 2018 Pontiac GTO is still unknown but it is predicted to be about $50,000 for the base. It is the large money of course and it will be the strong rivals for Audi A5 or new 4 Series. GM also has a model called ATS coupe as the alternative for those who want to have a cheaper car than this.
