Like the Impala SS, the Monte Carlo SS is equipped with the high-performance 5.3L small-block V-8, which was engineered specifically for front-drive applications. The Monte Carlo SS also includes unique exterior styling that is inspired by its NASCAR heritage.

Monte Carlo exudes sportiness, inside and out. The exterior features large headlamps that have a premium, jeweled appearance with three independent lighting units. These details complement other high-quality attributes to provide an overall feeling of solidity. Also, flat-blade windshield wipers are used to provide consistent pressure on the glass, which helps eliminate streaking and wind noise. All models receive a sporty rear spoiler.

The Monte Carlo SS has a distinct front-end appearance, with a dual-split grille that has a black-diamond crosshatch pattern. The rear spoiler is unique, too, suggesting the purposefulness of NASCAR spoilers. Corvette-inspired bright exhaust outlets also are standard on the Monte Carlo SS. For 2007, a Rally Stripe package is available.

Monte Carlo SS comes with the FE4 suspension, which is tuned to provide a sporty ride that complements the 5.3L small-block V-8’s performance. It offers increased stiffness and ride control, with reduced body lean and greater high-speed stability. The 34-mm hollow front stabilizer bar and 18-mm solid rear stabilizer bar are larger in diameter than the bars of the two FE2 suspension settings, providing increased roll control. Eighteen-inch alloy wheels with W-rated P235/50R18 AL3 Goodyear Eagle RS-A performance tires are included with the FE4 suspension.

LOL. You people have never driven this car have you. I own one and I tell ya what. For all you coneheads out there that think the 80’s monte was anything more than a pretty body with an embarassing engine I feel sorry for you. This car hauls ass. I don’t even bother racing Mustangs anymore. They just can’t keep up. Stop complaining about FWD. You wanna make a gripe then talk about the lack of a manual that’s the only thing this car is missing. So I say this to all of you who haven’t experienced 325 cubic inches of chevy grunt......."you’re dumb."

I like the older body styles than the newer ones on the Monte Carlo but I would still stick with the Monte Carlo.

I am a dedicated Chevrolet owner, however I am considering a Ford Mustang GT, or Dodge Charger because GM designers don’t get the idea that retro is back and that is what guys want. Get rid of the generic front end and front wheel drive and I will definately buy a Monte Carlo over a Mustang. I don’t know what chevy is thinking with all the front wheel drive vehicles. They are not fun to drive and the understeer makes for a bland driving experience. Ever wonder why top car manufacturers like Mercedes and BMW don’t make a front wheel drive? Wake up GM designers, not every chevrolet car has to have the same front end design and front wheel drive.

needs a bit more power, exterior is boring, wish it was rear wheel drive
