2001 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am WS6
The legendary lineup starts with Firebird Coupe and Convertible. An alluring exterior is standard equipment, starting with a hidden headlamp design, neatly integrated fog lamps, and fender-mounted air extractors, and continuing with the sleek, aerodynamically shaped body. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, cruise control, a fold-down rear seat, and a center console with an auxiliary power outlet and dual cupholders.
Firebird Convertible adds a standard uplevel Monsoon sound system with CD player and eight optimally placed speakers for high-powered audio, even with the top down. The convertible also features a six-way power driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with redundant radio controls, remote keyless entry, alarm and power door locks, windows, outside mirrors and radio antenna.
Firebird Formula Coupe appointments include low-profile Z-speed-rated tires, Silver 16-inch (406 mm) five-spoke sport wheels, and a performance-oriented suspension. It also includes a 10-speaker version of the Monsoon CD audio system.
The ultimate expression of Firebird muscle, Trans Am, is offered in both coupe and convertible editions. Standard equipment includes removable roof panels, leather seat surfaces and an uplevel rear spoiler for the coupe.
