Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS
The 2006 Monte Carlo was introduced at the 2005 Los Angeles Auto Show. The base engine was a 3.5 L V6 producing 210 hp. The most notable news, though, was the SS model's use of the Generation IV small-block V8 — the first V8 since the 1988 model. The 5.3 L V8 produced 303 hp, which raised some eyebrows considering it was being placed in a front-wheel-drive car. The interior for 2006 was mildly redesigned.
