About Pontiac Firebird

As a result of General Motors' desire to create a new car to compete with the new pony car category, Pontiac Firebird was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's brand Pontiac from 1967 to 2002 as a pony and muscle car. Originally introduced to share the pony car market and compete against the Ford Mustang, Firebird was based on a new purpose-built F-body platform. But being manufactured through four generations, the last Firebird rolled off the production line in 2002.
The second-generation Pontiac Firebird was produced from 1982 to 1992 in two body styles: 2-door coupe and 2-door convertible. And it came in three trim levels: base, luxury S/E, Trans Am and Formula. During this generation, Firebird got many engine options ranging from 2.5 L inline-four rated at 90 to 5.7 L V8 producing 240 hp and engines sent power through either 4-speed, 5-speed manual or 3-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels. Most recent Pontiac Firebird debuted in 1992 as a 1993 model. The base, Trans Am and Formula trim levels were carried over from the previous generation. But this time, Firebird was powered by engines varying from 3.4 L V6 generating 160 hp to 5.7 L V8 making 275 hp. Power was sent through 4-speed automatic or 5-speed, 6-speed manual transmission.
