2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

The 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo is the first of the seventh generation of this car. Some do not believe that it deserves to start off a new generation, as restyling seems relatively minor to earn such a title.

A new line of engines comes in this new generation. The standard is a 3.5-liter LZE V6 rated at 211 horsepower with 220 torque. The 3.9-liter LZ9 rated at 240 horses comes next, topped off with the 5.3-liter LS4 V8, rated at 303 horsepower and 323 torque.

A new instrument panel and pit-like feel greet the driver, as do more comfortable seats. Many drivers of this vehicle love the peppiness of the engine, especially in the high-end SS. There were some complaints about the shakiness of the base model.
