About Pontiac Trans Sport

Being a member of General Motors' minivan lineup including Chevrolet Lumina APV and Oldsmobile Silhouette, Pontiac Trans Sport was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company and sold under its brand Pontiac between 1989 and 1998 as a minivan.

And Trans Sport was powered by 2.3 L I4, 3.1 L, 3.4 L and 3.8 L V6 engines, engines sent power through the 5-speed manual, 3-speed and 4-speed automatic transmissions to the front wheels. The more recent Trans Sport debuted in the 1997 model year. Back then, it only got a 3.4 L V6 engine and a 4-speed automatic transmission, but Trans Sport was available in 3-door or 4-door.
