The Pontiac Grand Prix has a sleek, sculpted appearance devoid of body-side molding. Its flowing, curvaceous side panels extend up into pronounced rear fender shoulders, giving the car a more wedge-shaped profile.

Inside, the fabrics and leather are richer and more contemporary, the analog gauges are larger with a sporty three-dimensional appearance, and the Head Up Display features a unique “stealth” mode, which allows the driver to navigate solely from the HUD with the instrument-cluster lights extinguished.

The WideTrack Handling System harmonizes suspension, steering and chassis components for a smooth ride and outstanding vehicle control, with a precise, on-center feel. An all-new braking system features stiffer front and aluminum rear calipers and larger-diameter front brake rotors. Higher heat capacity and improved vibrational characteristics improve brake system performance. Electronic brake force distribution is a new feature that provides shorter stopping distances.

The rear doors swing open almost 90 degrees, allowing for easier entering and exiting and for loading bulky items like a large TV or computer box. It’s also simpler to load large cargo, like bicycles or extra wide boxes into the trunk, as the opening is nearly 10 inches wider and the lift-over height almost 6 inches lower.
