2002 Pontiac Grand Prix G-Force Concept

The 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix G-Force Concept earns its moniker through its remarkable handling capabilities. Building upon the Grand Prix Wide Track Handling system, the G-Force is engineered to achieve a lateral acceleration force of .85G and a top speed of 155 mph, setting a new standard for performance in its class.

At the heart of the G-Force is a potent 280-horsepower supercharged engine delivering 280 lb-ft of torque, providing exhilarating performance on demand. The vehicle's chassis, wheel, and tire configuration are optimized to harness this power, with large Z speed-rated tires mounted on 19-inch open-spoke wheels, further accentuating its performance-oriented features.

Inside the Grand Prix G-Force, the focus is on the driver's experience, blending the needs of a performance coupe with the comfort of a touring sedan. The interior is meticulously crafted with attention to color, texture, and design, creating a driver-centric cockpit environment. Race-inspired oversized bucket seats with integrated headrests offer both comfort and functionality, enhancing the driving experience.

Adding to the sense of control is the manually controlled automatic transmission, featuring Touch Activated Controls (TACshift). Reminiscent of Formula 1 race cars, TACshift puts gear-shifting controls within easy reach, allowing the driver to shift gears faster than with a traditional automatic transmission, thereby increasing control and enhancing the driving experience.

With its blend of precise handling, powerful performance, and driver-focused design, the Pontiac Grand Prix G-Force Concept redefines the boundaries of what a full-size sedan can achieve in terms of both performance and comfort.
