1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

The 1996 Monte Carlo was available in two trims: the LS coupe and the sporty Z34. Each had a GM Hydra-matic four-speed electric automatic transmission with powertrain control.  

The LS came standard with a 3.1-liter V6 rated at 160 horsepower, while the Z34 had a 210-horsepower V6. Drivers of this car love the peppy engine, especially on the Z34, as well as the sleek look and such luxuries as leather power seats. Gas mileage does not suffer much for the power: the LS gets 20 mpg city/29 mpg highway, and the Z34 is rated at 17/26.
