About Pontiac LeMans

To respond to the Big Three's first compact cars, Pontiac LeMans was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company between 1962 and 1981 and a South Korean automobile manufacturer and a subsidiary of General Motors GM Korea Company (Daewoo) between 1988 and 1993 as a mid-size and subcompact car. Originally introduced to succeed the Pontiac 1000, LeMans also competed against the Ford Falcon, Chevy Corvair and Plymouth Valiant along with Buick Skylark, Oldsmobile F-85, Oldsmobile Cutlass and Pontiac Tempest. But still, after being manufactured through five generations, the LeMans was replaced by the Pontiac Bonneville for the 1982 model year. And the last LeMans was actually discontinued after 1993.
Since most modern drivers only own the most recent sixth-generation Pontiac LeMans and have expressed more interest in it, we will focus on it. The last-generation Pontiac LeMans was produced from 1988 to 1993 as a rebadged version of Daewoo LeMans. In the North American market, it was a subcompact car and captive import offered in two body styles: 3-door hatchback and 4-door sedan. And it came in four trim levels: base, LE, sportier GSE and SE. During this period, LeMans was powered by 2.0 L i4 rated at 96 hp and 1.5 L I4 and engines sent power through the 4-speed, 5-speed manual and 3-speed automatic transmissions to the front wheels.
