The Pontiac 6000 was launched for 1982, at around the same time as its sister cars, the Buick Century, Chevrolet Celebrity and Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera. It was available as a two-door coupe, four-door sedan or (eventually) a five-door station wagon. There was a comprehensive range of engines, starting with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, extending through a 2.8-liter V6 and topping out with a 3.1 V6. There was also a 4.3-liter V6 diesel. The engine all drove the front wheels through either a five-speed manual gearbox or three- or four-speed automatic transmissions. In 1984 a sportier STE version was launched, with a 135hp version of the 2.8 V6. Tweaks to the range were relatively minor thereafter, concerning mainly lights, bumpers and fascias. Haynes has an extensive range of Pontiac repair manuals and online maintenance procedures to suit professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts.
