About Pontiac Phoenix

Available along with the Chevrolet Citation, Buick Skylark and Oldsmobile Omega to compete against the high-quality and ever more popular compact sedans from Japan, Pontiac Phoenix was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company and sold under its brand Pontiac between 1977 and 1984 as a compact car. Originally introduced to substitute the Pontiac Ventura, Phoenix was built based on popular Chevrolet models and got its name from the mythologies. But after being manufactured for only two generations, the Phoenix was replaced by the Pontiac Grand Am in 1985.
The first-generation Pontiac Phoenix was produced from 1977 to 1979 and was introduced as the top-level trim of the Pontiac Ventura. Built at the GM X-body platform, Phoenix was offered in three body styles: 2-door coupe or hatchback and 4-door sedan and came in three trim levels: base, LJ and SJ. During this generation, Phoenix was powered by a 2.5 L I4 rated at 110 hp, a 3.8 L V6 producing 110 horsepower and a 5.0 L V8 making 140 hp. And these engines sent power through 3-speed, 4-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmissions to the rear wheels. The more recent Phoenix arrived in 1980 as a downsized model. The 2-door coupe and 5-door hatchback were available body styles and it was offered in base, LE and SE trim levels. Back then, Phoenix gets power from 2.5 L I4 and 2.8 L V6 and power was sent through 3-speed automatic or 4-speed manual transmission to the front wheels.
