The 2018 Pontiac GTO is the most spectacular model GTO-Series of high-performance sports coupe and offers a 2 + 2 configuration and powertrain tested.

The supercharged 6.2L V8 propels the 2018 Pontiac GTO coupe. It deploys a power of 556 hp (415 kW) and is paired to either a manual or automatic six-speed gearbox. A set of technical components and performance complement the powertrain, including Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo brakes and Michelin Pilot Sport GTO performance tires mounted on 19-inch wheels forged aluminum and a braking system tested on track comprising front discs in two parts. They offer superior resistance to warping and displayed increased lifespan, in addition to reducing the weight of the vehicle.

A unique grille that doubles the air intake to promote vehicle recorded performance is one of the distinctive features of the 2018 GTO-Series, as an aggressive front fascia and raised center section of the aluminum hood which saves enough space to the supercharger.

Continuous improvements to the model enabled the 2018 Pontiac GTO to remain in contention head as customer choice and receive many praises. This tradition continues as the 2018 Pontiac GTO sports coupe offers four new exterior colors: gray spectral Metallic, Mocha Steel Metallic (late availability), red tint obsession (extra charge) and lees of wine metallic royal (additional charge) – and a new interior trim blue sports group ..

Safety features and accident prevention on the 2018 Pontiac GTP Sports Coupe

Compared to variants other than the GTO series outside the 2018 GTO meets a number of unique elements that combine function and aesthetics 2018 GTO grille dihedral angle, for example, is greater to increase the intake air and has a satin finish while the raised hood cleaning space for the supercharged engine it houses. The front and rear fascias as well as the rear spoiler incorporating the center high mounted stop lamp are specific to the car as the 19-inch wheels as standard.

Other exterior features on the 2018 Pontiac GTO:

High intensity headlights with adaptive front headlights directional serial system discharge.

Heated exterior mirrors, electrically adjustable series.

Wipers Windshield Rainsense series.

Nineteen-inch wheels as standard painted aluminum.

Nineteen-inch wheels-polished aluminum option.

Nineteen-inch aluminum wheels with Satin graphite and yellow calipers Optional

Brembo calipers painted red or yellow deliverables

Exterior colors: Metallic Grey spectral, Mocha Steel Metallic (late availability), Bright Silver Metallic, Black Raven, triple black diamond layer, three-layer white diamond, blue metallic opulent, lees of wine Royal Metallic (extra charge) and red tint obsession (fee).

Interior features of the 2018 Pontiac GTO sports Coupe

The interior of the 2018 Pontiac GTO sports coupe is distinguished by its sleek table edge LED lighting and contrasting elements cut and stitched by hand. It offers performance seats embellished with perforated sueded microfiber inserts designed to keep occupants in place during cornering. Performance Recaro seats optional guarantee excellent support to encourage sporty driving. These performance 14-way adjustable seats include pneumatic control beads in the cushions and seat backs.

Supercharged 2018 Pontiac GTO performance

The V8 6.2L supercharged 2018 Pontiac GTO sports coupe is rated at 556 horsepower (415 kW) and a torque of 551 lb-ft (747 Nm). This is the most powerful engine in Pontiac’s history.

The engine is coupled to a supercharger 2018 GTO Series to intercooler, with two four-lobe rotors, twisted 160 degrees. Conventional superchargers only comprise three lobes twisted 60 degrees. The fourth lobe and increased propeller profile, combined with inlet and outlet exclusive air, create a smoother and more efficient air flow through the engine. Besides its greater overall efficiency, this supercharger has much lower levels of noise and vibration compared to other simpler models.

Two six-speed boxes are available with the 2018 Pontiac GTO sports Coupe – a manual Tremec six-speed dual-disc clutch and six-speed Hydra-Matic-speed gearshift steering wheel controls. The steering wheel-mounted controls require no shift lever movement and allow immediate changes speeds. The sports shift algorithm provides the automatic speed change grid-oriented driving performance sports supported. As with many GTO models, the driver needs only to slide the lever to the grid for manual operation so that the transmission shifts in performance mode.

The torque is transmitted by the six-speed boxes to a high-performance rear axle with a limited slip differential housed in a cast iron shell for protection against heat and asymmetrical half-shafts to tame smooth the incredible power supercharged engine. This unique design uses different sized half-shafts that also help dynamically balance the oscillation of torque from side to the other, effectively eliminating the jerk power.

Driving experience of the 2018 Pontiac GTO Coupe

The 2018 GTO Series offers exceptional handling while maintaining plumb luxury vehicles in everyday driving conditions. This performance is made possible by the exclusive 2018 GTO Magnetic Ride, the most nerve suspension in the world. Instead of using mechanical valves, this suspension makes use of advanced magneto-rheological dampers that promote rapid response and high accuracy. Electronic sensors at all four wheels “read” the road every millisecond and continuously adjust damping to control body movements in an almost instantaneous and extremely precise.

The shock absorbers of the magnetic suspension also allow a wider range of damping to optimize road holding and handling of the car in all driving conditions. The 2018 Pontiac GTO Sports Coupe adds a control element by offering a choice of two modes (Tour and GTO Sport), enabling the driver to adjust the suspension for driving a touring or more sportier drive .

The 2018 Pontiac GTO Sports coupe is distinguished by its brakes and its high-end tires, created in collaboration with two companies renowned for high-performance technology: Brembo and Michelin. All four wheels are equipped with powerful Brembo brakes with six-piston calipers up front and four-piston rear. Large ventilated discs are capable of providing a high initial braking force while optimally resistant to heat and wear.Discs in two parts offer a greater resistance to warping and possibly a longer life in addition to being lighter. The design includes a brake ring mounted on a “cap” which sets thebrake to the wheel hub. The “hat” and brake cooling at a different speed which helps the drive to dissipate heat more efficiently to avoid warping.

Michelin partnered with Pontiac engineers to develop an exclusive Sport PS2 tire specifically designed for the 2018 Pontiac GTO. Tires provide a high level of grip on the track while providing excellent performance on the road.
