The Pontiac lineup: features and equipment packages


Pontiac, named after the famed Ottawa chief, was an American automobile brand established in 1926 as a companion make for General Motors' (GM) Oakland division. Over time, Pontiac overtook Oakland in popularity and supplanted it entirely by 1933.

From its inception, Pontiac was marketed as the performance division of General Motors, producing popular models like the Catalina, Bonneville, GTO, Grand Am, and Firebird. Pontiacs were notable for their "wide track" design, which increased the width between the tires to create a more aggressive, performance-oriented look.

The 1960s and '70s were a high point for Pontiac, where they developed a reputation for speed and performance through the production of models like the GTO and the Firebird, effectively participating in the creation of the "muscle car" era.

However, by the early 2000s, Pontiac's fortunes began to wane due to a lack of distinctive models and an industry-wide move away from sporty vehicles. The financial crisis of 2008 was the final blow, and in 2009, GM announced it would discontinue the Pontiac brand. The last Pontiac, a white G6 sedan, rolled off the assembly line in January 2010.
