1996 Pontiac Firebird Overview

The 1996 model brings with it some additional options as well as some newly standardized equipment. The 3.8-liter V6 engine which was optional in the 1995 models, is standard in the 1996 base model, and the Formula had its 5.7-liter V8 enhanced to 285 horsepower (305 in the Trans Am).

As always, the Firebird's big engine is what distinguishes it from other sports cars--especially those in its price range where it remains unmatched in value. Alloy wheels with painted surfaces add a sleeker look to the pony car. A variety of packages were available to sport up the look of the car, as well as to add some nice features, such as more engine power, traction control, and remote keyless entry.

Minuses of the Firebird include a failure to adhere to slippery roads (especially in Winter) and a lack of passenger and cargo room.
