Learn about the Pontiac Grand-Am


First introduced in 1973, the Pontiac Grand Am is loved for its sporty nature and hints of European style that were a novelty when it arrived on the American market. Production fluctuated through the 1970s partly due to the oil embargo, but the Grand Am made a comeback in the mid-1980s to become Pontiac's best-selling car that would stick around until the G6 would eventually replace it in 2005. The latest generation arrives in a two-door compact coupe and four-door sedan.
