The Pontiac Grand Am is a mid-size vehicle and later a compact vehicle that was built by Pontiac. The history of Grand Am begins as a reaction to Mercedes and BMW incursion into the U.S. market. Especially, the American sports automobile was basically without luxury traits and the luxury vehicle without sport traits. Foreign makers mixed these traits. Pontiac mixt the Trans Am with the Grand Prix to produce the Grand Am.
Constructed on the A-body platform, the intended GTO body frame was a re-badged version to fit the Grand Prix interior. As 1973 was built, OPEC imposed an oil embargo to the USA. This ended in a contrast of buyers: total luxury or total economy. Since Grand Am was an “in-betweener“, its sales were slow and it was abandoned in 1975.
The Grand Am was readded to the line-up in 1985 when it followed the Pontiac Phoenix. It became Pontiac's best selling automobile and was later substituted by the Pontiac G6, so called as it was meant to be the 6th generation of the Grand Am.
