The GTO is an iconic American muscle car which has been discontinued mostly because the Camaro was selling better than it and GM didn’t really see the need of a muscle car like the GTO. The car was revived briefly in the mid of 2000s but it was not a true GTO but a renamed Holden Monaro with different badges. Despite that, it seems that GM might be working on such a car and a revival for the brand with the 2018 Pontiac GTO.Even though this might seem like an odd move, it would allow them to build a brand of just sports car, similar to what the FCA Group is doing with Dodge. The new GTO would likely be a car built from the ground up instead of just another rename of a production model. The most probable platform for the new GTO would be the Alpha which is a rear wheel drive modular platform that would allow the 2018 Pontiac GTO to be as fast as it needs to be and it would also allow GM to build it with ease in their factories.However, in order to be successful in such a competitive market, the Pontiac GTO 2018 will have to look very good and its interiorwill have to be one of the best in order to make the American people buy it. While there is no concept to look at, the car would likely hit the market with an entirely new design which will set the trend for all the future Pontiac models. On top of that, its cabin will combine the sporty feel of the Camaro with the luxury found in certain Cadillac models, so it should be quite an attractive car.Unlike the Camaro which is an all-out sports car, the Pontiac GTO will likely hit the market with a set of engines that will allow it to win the battle with its rivals. We expect it to be offered with a single engine choice, an all new 4.8 liter twin-turbocharged V8 which would easily be capable of providing close to 500 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque, enough to make it a threat for all those European sports car while still allowing the Corvette to be the best sports car built by GM.
