A slightly restyled Firebird was introduced by Pontiac in 1998, offering a sexier new front end. The Formula model got a powerful 305 horsepower detuned Corvette engine, and next-gen airbags became standard across all models. 1999 saw the added option of electronic traction control, with a limited-slip rear axle being made standard on V8 models, and an eight-speaker Delco sound system being made standard for the convertible model. The 30th anniversary Trans Am was also released, offering two-toned paint with racing stripes. In 2000, new wheels, new body colors and an updated engine were lauded as major changes. A slight power boost to V8 models was the only noteworthy change for 2001. The final year of the Firebird, 2002, saw powered mirrors and a powered antenna being made standard, with several new body colors to choose from.
