2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS.jpg

Chevrolet Monte Carlo (W-body). 2000–7 (prod. 422,895). 2-door coupé. F/F, 3350, 3510, 3791, 3880 cm³ (V6 OHV), 5328 cm³ (V8 OHV). Similar idea to before, but with more retro design cues thrown in. Not that sporting: handling and steering were vague, while interior, albeit roomy for the segment, bland with cheap materials. V6s, despite their OHV design, reasonable, though less competitive as the car continued. Supercharged Buick 3·8 V6 SS from 2004 helped performance credentials. No passenger side airbags from 2000 to 2005. Major refresh in 2006, with Impala-style grille and new rear end, and side airbags, new instrument panel and redesigned seats among internal changes. All change for engines, as 3·5, 3·9 and V8 made their entrance, replacing previous units, though the middle engine was deleted for the final year.
