This article is about Pontiac automobiles; for the Native American leader, see Chief Pontiac,

Pontiac is a brand of automobiles, produced by General Motors that has been sold in the United States, Canada and Mexico since 1926. Pontiac is marketed as General Motors' "athletic" brand and specializes in mainstream performance vehicles.

Pre-war years: 1926-1942

The Pontiac brand was introduced by General Motors in 1926 as the 'companion' marque to GM's Oakland Motor Car line. The Pontiac name was first used in 1906 by the Pontiac Spring & Wagon Works and linked to Chief Pontiac who led an unsuccessful uprising against the British shortly after the French and Indian War. The Oakland Motor Company and Pontiac Spring & Wagon Works Company merged in November 1908 under the name of the Oakland Motor Car Company. The operations of both companies were joined together in Pontiac, Michigan (in Oakland County) to build the Cartercar. Oakland was purchased by General Motors in 1909. The first General Motors Pontiac was conceived as an affordable six cylinder that was intended to compete with more inexpensive four cylinder models. Within months of its introduction, Pontiac outsold Oakland. As Pontiac's sales rose and Oakland's sales began to decline, Pontiac became the only 'companion' marque to survive its 'parent', when Oakland ceased production in 1932.

All new for 2004, the GTO is built by GM subsidiary, Holden in Australia. Based on the existing Monaro platform, the GTO features the C5 Corvette's LS1 Gen III V8 engine. The standard powertrain is a performance-tuned Hydra-Matic automatic, with a Tremec close-ratio six-speed manual as the only optional feature. Other standard equipment includes a dual exhaust with twin converters, Bosch three-channel traction control system, W-rated 17- tires, and Blaupunkt 200-watt 10-speaker sound system. The GTO has a true 2+2-seating configuration, with interior appointments such as machine-drilled pedals, satin nickel trim, leather seats with side bolsters, and color-coordinated sport gauges.
