Introduction to the Pontiac Fiero
The Pontiac Rero is the first Amerioan-built mid-engine sports car. Although it uses many existing GM components from other vehicles, the Fiero combines these parts in innovative ways. Moreover, one aspect of the Ficro’s design that is shared with no other vehicle, American or foreign, is its “space frame” and chassis design with separate reinforced “Enduraflex” body panels. Corrosion free exterior panels are oolted to the space frame, making them easily removable if repair or service is required.
Two engines are available in the Fiero. The base engine is a 2.5 liter four-cylinder, mated to either a tive-speed manual or three-speed automatic transaxle. In 1985. an optional 2.8 liter V6 engine, equipped with an automatic transaxle or a four-speed manual transaxle, was added to the line. In 1987, a five-speed manual transaxle became available as an option for the V6 engine.
