Supercharged Impala SS, Monte Carlo SS added to Chevy stable

Toronto, Ontario – The Chevrolet Impala SS will return to the Chevy lineup as a 2004 model with a supercharged 3.8 litre V6 engine, and the two-door Monte Carlo SS will be upgraded to the same supercharged engine for 2004, said GM on Wednesday.

The 2004 Chevy Impala SS will deliver more power and tighter handling with a 240-horsepower 3800 supercharged V-6 engine, beefed-up four-wheel independent suspension and high-performance speed-rated tires with 17-inch diamond-cut cast aluminum wheels. The monochromatic black SS also will feature bright stainless steel dual exhaust tips, fog lamps, a six-gauge cluster including boost gauge, and “SS” badging.

“The 2004 Impala SS will be a thoroughly contemporary interpretation of the style and performance that built the SS heritage beginning with the ’61 Impala Super Sport,” said Mark Alger, Marketing Manager, mid-size cars at GM Canada. “True to this legacy, the 2004 Impala SS will be a great value compared to other cars with similar performance, and well within the reach of mainstream customers.”

The 2004 Monte Carlo Supercharged SS offers the same 240-horsepower 3800 supercharged V-6, four-wheel independent performance suspension and high-performance Goodyear tires with 17-inch diamond-cut cast aluminum wheels. The Supercharged SS also will feature a race-inspired spoiler, bright stainless steel dual exhaust tips, fog lamps, a six-gauge cluster including boost gauge and “Supercharged SS” exterior and interior badging.

Chevrolet is working with the GM Performance Division to develop the Impala SS and other SS vehicles that feature strong acceleration, enhanced handling and uncompromised driveability. The first result of this collaboration is the Oshawa-built 2003 Silverado SS extended cab short bed pickup, available in the first quarter of 2003.
