The Grand Am GT and GT1 models are offered wîth the 175-horsepower (130 kw) Ram Air version of the 3400 V-6. It also produces 205 lb.-ft. of torque (278 Nm) and is mated to the Hydra-Matic 4T45-E electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
The Grand Am GT has a four-wheel independent suspension. Aluminum suspension knuckles reduce unsprung weight for responsive ride and handling. Torque-axis powertrain mounting uses two mounts to support the mass of the engine and transaxle and two others specifically tuned to resist torque and reduce vibrations while idling. Mounting Grand Am's power rack-and-pinion §teering system directly to the hydroformed chassis cradle provides precise on-center feel wîth excellent isolation of road disturbances.
With sophisticated engine management and computer programming, Grand Am's ABS and Enhanced Traction System (standard on GT and GT1) help provide solid stops, traction and control under the most challenging conditions. The ABS system can help the driver maintain control under situations that could normally send a vehicle out of control.
Safety belts remain the primary and most effective form of occupant protection. Retractors for front outboard seating positions have built-in load limiters that allow a controlled amount of give in the belt, thereby reducing the peak load on the chest during the 'ride down' in a crash.
Grand Am GT also is equipped wîth LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) System anchors for child safety seats. This system provides two lower anchors and a top tether anchor to be used to secure a child seat to the vehicle seat structure. These anchorages are designed to make it easier to properly install compatible child safety seats.Source - GM Corporation
