2005 Pontiac Grand Am - Price Quote

Visit Pontiac for more information on the Pontiac Grand Am.

The Grand Am begins to get phased out in 2005 as Pontiac moves towards full implementation of their newest car, the G6. For the last model year of its existence, the Grand Am will only be offered as a two-door coupe.

2005 Pontiac Grand Ams remain just at sporty and driver-friendly as ever, with nice interior appointments, smooth handling, and quite a bit of pep under the hood. There's no going out softly for these proud cars.

Available Models
The 2005 Pontiac Grand Am is broken down into two trim levels: GT and GT1. As mentioned, there are no SE models this year.

Interior Features
Two-door coupes seat five passengers and offer a cargo volume of 14.6 cubic feet. That's plenty of room to carry a heavy load of goods.

All 2005 Pontiac Grand Am models come with air-conditioning, a tilt steering wheel, a center console, cupholders, a split folding rear seat, power mirrors, windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, a Monsoon AM/FM/CD player and a digital clock. The GT1 adds a standard MP3 player.

Pontiac offers a special SC/T edition Grand Am for 2005. On in the inside, this package adds XM Satellite Radio and leather-appointed seating with "SC/T" embroidered on seat backs.
There are other options for 2005 as well. Many can be added individually, though there are a few group deals.

Exterior Features
The exterior of the flashy SC/T is sure to catch the eye. It includes a performance composite hood, rear aero wings, chrome tech wheels and a custom chrome-tipped exhaust system.

The sole engine for 2005 GT models is a capable 3.4-liter V6 with Ram Air, cold-air induction and lower-restriction exhaust. It enables GTs to produce up to 175 horsepower at 4800 rpm and 205 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm.

4-speed automatic transmission takes care of all the shifting. The 2005 Grand Am mounts power rack-and-pinion steering on a sturdy hydroformed chassis, which centers the vehicle nicely and results in its trademark responsiveness.

All models have rack-and-pinion steering and performance tuned suspensions.

Safety and Security
The standard safety package of GT models includes such items as dual front airbags, sport suspension, daytime running lights and antilock 4-wheel disc brakes. Also provided are programmable door locks with lockout protection, battery rundown protection, an electric remote trunk release, an oil life monitor, the PASSLock II theft deterrent and a sealed-for-life transmission.
