Description:
2006 Chevy Monte Carlo, seen here in SS livery.

Same bland front end as the 2006 Impala, but appears to be only a facelift, rather than a complete body restyle.

Yeah, I think it's as bland as the Impala, but the current Monte Carlo sure ain't pretty, and this is an improvement.

this is okay, except for the way the bumber has the funky looking edge thing going on in the middle. reminds me of the cobalt

#2, Well, not for 2006 at least. This is obviously still the same car since 2000, with a different front facia, and the rear decklid has been flattened out. The new Impala is obviously a brand new completely restyled body, but may still be on the same chassis.

apparently the SS is going to be powered by a 5.3L V8

FWD + 303hp = gahhh!

#6, wouldn't that cause a ton of torque steer, thus making accleration a chore?

They would almost have to put a LSD iunder there, which would improve things significantly.

our old 3.4 impala had more than enough torque to need some technique to floor it and take off. floor it, wheel left, drive. i hate to see the torque steer on this.

Damn, Monte Carlos have been getting uglier every year for as long as I can remember. One day Chevrolet is going to restyle the Monte Carlo where it actually looks good, and when it does I'm going to drop dead.

I actually sorta like this. I can only hope that they intend to use a nice Torsen or Quaife differential in that little V8 beast, though.

303hp V8 sounds good to me... and #10, I believe this is better than the current Monte, but that's just me.

#12, Well, I could concede maybe it's about as attractive as the current ones. But they didn't look as good as the previous ones, which didn't look as good as their previous ones, pretty much going back to 1978.*

*Excluding the '80s models with the SS package.

I liked the late '90s ones that looked like plain old 2-door Luminas. Of course, I also had a weird thing for the earlier Lumina Z34s from the early '90s, so your mileage may vary. :p

I'm really happy they flattened out the decklid... it just looked weird with that wavy hump....

#15, I think it was supposed to vaguely resemble a cross between a spare tire hump and a kicktail spoiler. It was weird.

HAH! I always thought it was supposed to look like the kicktail spoilers they use on stockcars, but made curvy to match the lines of the car. But it really did come out looking like a spare tire hump.

EDIT: I put "dicktail". >_<

#18, I don't know why, but a lot of times when I'm typing really fast my fingers end up inverting, so I make weird typos like putting "SWS" for "LOL", or sometimes whole really long words completely mirrored on the keyboard. Or as in this case, something simple like "D" instead of "K".

#19, Just for the hell of it, the rest of this post will be typed with my keyboard upside down.
