1996 Pontiac Grand Prix Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 17 reviews
Set for a much-needed overhaul in the coming year, the front-wheel drive 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix didn't tinker with much in terms of looks or performance. Offered as a coupe or sedan in either SE or GT trims, the Grand Prix is a popular, affordable family car that has tried to capitalize on the Pontiac Excitement branding.
The 3.4-liter 24-valve V6, which is standard in the GT and GTP and an option in the SE trims, gets a power boost to 215-horsepower. The 3.1-liter V6 remains at 160-hp. Both engines come only with a 4-speed automatic. Also new in 1996 is a special Sport Package on coupe models, which adds 5-spoke alloy wheels and dual exhaust pipes. Whether you get a sedan or coupe, the mid-size 1996 Grand Prix has plenty of room for use as family car. The GT and GTP models are more performance-oriented, with special supportive seats, ground effects, standard ABS brakes, and fog lights, though even the base SE sedan comes well loaded. Dual front airbags are standard across the line.
Acceleration performance and V6 engine power stand out for owners of the 1996 Grand Prix. They like the overall interior and exterior style and layout, and the comfortable legroom. The weight of the car hampers taking full advantage of the engine, however, and numerous repairs accompany Grand Prix ownership. Drivers mention rattling, paint chipping, and a check engine light that is perpetually on.
