Pontiac is launching a totally new Grand Am for 1999 with new exterior styling, a redesigned interior, a re-engineered chassis and suspension, a bigger optional V6 engine, and more convenience features. Dealers are moving the '98 models out as fast as possible to make way for the new one, which is beginning to arrive in showrooms and roll out onto the streets now. Bold, new styling with aggressive ribbed body work is designed to draw even more attention to this sporty compact than before. Redesigned interiors make it more comfortable, while new convenience features make life a little easier. But the best news for the Grand Am is its re-engineered chassis and suspension tuning, which improve handling and ride comfort substantially over previous models.
