About Pontiac Bonneville

Boasting a long history, Pontiac Bonneville was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's brand Pontiac between 1958 and 2005 as a full-size and mid-size car. Originally introduced as the successor to Pontiac Star Chief, Bonneville was a limited production performance model and one of the largest models that Pontiac ever built. However, after being manufactured for ten generations, the last Bonneville left the assembly line on May 27, 2005, and it was replaced by the Pontiac G8.
The ninth-generation Pontiac Bonneville was produced from 1992 to 1999, made its debut at the 1991 Chicago International Auto Show and went on sale in July 1991 for the 1992 model year. Available only one body style, 4-door sedan, Bonneville came in three trim levels: base SE, sporty SSE and supercharged SSEi as well as an SLE (Sport Luxury Edition) package. During this generation, Bonneville was powered by a standard 3.8 L V6 rated at 170 hp and 220 lb-ft of torque, whose output grew to 205 hp and 230 lb-ft of torque, 205 hp and 260 pound-feet of torque and 240 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. And this engine sent power through the 4-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels. The more recent Bonneville arrived at the market in 2000 and it came in four trim levels: base SE, midrange SLE, GXP and top-of-the-line SSEi. And it got power from a 3.8 L V6 rated at 205 horsepower and 230 lb-ft of torque and a 4.6 L V8 producing 275 hp and 300 pound-feet of torque, and power was still sent through the 4-speed automatic transmission.
