The 2004 Pontiac GTO is a car of legend. It was the first model
year Pontiac unleashed a modern muscle car, and we didn't know it
then, but this would also be the final generation. And the full
black package and driver-ready style of this example mean you've
found an affordable, loaded, and powerful way to have the most
interesting driveway in the neighborhood.
This car debuted for the 40th anniversary of the GTO. And just like
the original, Pontiac didn't try to be overbearing with the design.
It's sleek, clean, and conservatively confident - so it's more than
just the twin kidney grille that made this new GTO feel a bit like
it came from a premium European like BMW. But they also gave it the
right stand-out sporty details, like a nice ground effects body
kit, a sculpted rear spoiler, and bright 17-inch alloys. And a
paint name like Phantom Black Metallic is intimidatingly cool.
There are also details exclusive to the 2004 car, like the smoother
hood and true dual exhaust that exits to one side. It's a well-kept
car with its signs of use commensurate with the mileage. So it
looks sleek and nice, but you won't shy away from a drive because
you fear a pebble on the road or rain in the forecast. After all,
it's a modern classic that deserves to be enjoyed. They even
upgraded the headlights with HID units.
The interior continues the feeling like this came from Germany.
After all, these were built by Holden in Australia, and so the
bloodline is closer to GM's Opel than Pontiac's Grand Am. This
import-level quality feeling comes from the moment you hop inside.
You have power front seats that have the bolstering to be all-day
comfortable. And the leather upholstery has the supple feel of a
well-respected car. You'll love the detail work, like how the red
dials have an unmistakably performance-oriented feel within the
aggressively dark interior. This loaded Pontiac has plenty of great
features, such as power windows, power locks, dual front airbags, a
tilt/telescopic steering column, cruise control, and ice-cold air
conditioning. Plus, the AM/FM/CD stereo is by Blaupunkt, so you get
premium European sound in this American muscle package.
This coupe might have been sent over from Australia, but the heart
is pure American. This LS1 powerplant is the same version that we
all love in the C5 Corvette. The fuel-injected 5.7-liter V8 is a
world-class motor rated at 350 hp for GTO duty. It's a versatile V8
that makes for easy driving in everyday situations, and it's nicely
paired with the four-speed automatic transmission. That means it
can be daily-driver easy with overdrive comfort, or just prod the
accelerator, and this downshifts into a large well of V8 power.
Plus, it has all the best modern driving features, including a
fully independent suspension, variable ratio rack & pinion power
steering, and four-wheel disc brakes w/ABS. There were even later
investments in some nice upgrades like KYB rear shocks and an
