The great new 1952 Pontiac provides a new concept of driving called Dual-Range Performance. This is achieved by a wonderful new "power train" consisting of high-compression six- and eight-cylinder engines, new Dual-Range Hydra-Matic Drive*, and high performance economy axle – all designed specifically for each other. With these three driving units, Pontiac gives you such a wide range of performance that you virtually have finger-tip control over two different power plants! Pontiac's new Dual-Range Hydra-Matic Drive has two drive (DR) positions. The right DR position offers three advantages that distinguish it from conventional drives: amazing acceleration and flexibility in congested traffic, increased engine braking ability down long hills or mountainous grades and the ability to use a lower rear axle ratio. In the left DR position, you can cruise at boulevard or highway speeds with a marked decrease in engine revolutions, with resultant quieter operation, improved gasoline economy, longer engine life and a feeling that approaches "coasting." With Pontiac's new Dual-Range Performance you need no longer be satisfied with “compromise” performance. You can chooses the performance you want – instantly and effortlessly. However, the basic advantages of Hydra-Matic design remain the same – proved by more miles and more owners, and more years than any other automatic transmission! Only the great new 1952 Pontiac offers Dual-Range Performance – performance that gives you the power you want – when you want it – where you want it!
*Dual_range Hydra-Matic Drive, optional at extra cost, is offered only in combination with high-compression six- and eight-cylinder engines and 3.08:1 rear axle to provide Dual-Range Performance. Standard compression 6 or 8 engines and 3.64:1 rear axle available with Synchro-Mesh transmission.
