The title "Firebird" was also earlier adopted by GM for the General Motors Firebird 1950s and early 1960s concept vehicles.
The base Firebirds are powered by a 3800 Series II V6 engine producing 200 horsepower through a five-speed manual transmission. The performance Corvette-derived LS1 trims are equipped with a V8 powertrain generating 310 hp and comes paired to a standard a four-speed automatic transmission. A six-speed manual transmission is a no-cost choice.
