Pontiac Montana Models and Montana History
New and Used Montana Prices, Pontiac Montana Model Years and History
In 1999, Pontiac delved into the minivan market with the release of the feature-rich Montana. In 1999, one or two sliding doors could be chosen for the Base model, side-impact airbags were made standard, as were 15 tires, and several new optional packages were added. An updated V6 engine, new antilock brakes, improved electrical system, updated climate control, oil-life monitoring system and updated gauge cluster marked the major changes for 2000. The biggest addition for 2001 was the optional third-row seat, which could now flip or fold. OnStar was made standard, so was remote entry, a CD player and all-powered accessories. Nominal changes were in store for 2002-2003, with subtle updates being made to trim levels and optional packages. In 2004, Versatrak all-wheel drive was made an option for all trim levels, and front/side impact airbags became standard. All-wheel-drive and regular wheel-base models were canned for 2005, with no other major changes taking place.
