2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

The 2004 Monte Carlo saw the re-debut of the SS, which featured a supercharged 3.8-liter V6 rated at 240 horsepower and 280 lb/ft of torque.  The LS and (non-supercharged) SS rounded out the trims for the 2004 Monte Carlo.  

The LS standard engine was a 3.4-liter V6 rated at 180 horsepower, while the standard SS was a 3.8-liter V6 rated at 200 horsepower.  Mileage for the three trims reflect their power levels: the LS gets 21 city/32 highway, the SS 20/30, and the SuperCharged SS 18/28.

By the way, why don't they call the Supercharged SS the SSS?  Or the SCSS?

Anyway, styling has been called "clumsy" by some, but all drivers of the car seem to agree that the strength of the various engines makes up for any styling flaws.
