1982 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Overview

The 1982 Monte Carlo featured few external changes from the 1981 model, yet the engines showed several changes, including the elimination of the turbo-charged V6. In addition, the Landau trim was no longer available.

The base engine remained a 229-ci V6 rated at 110 horsepower. The new optional engine for the V6 was a 262-ci diesel rated at only 85 horsepower. The Monte Carlo was once considered a muscle car, and the optional diesel engine seemed to be a radical step in the wrong direction for some.

Those looking for a little more power could opt for the 267-ci V8 rated at 115 horsepower or the 305-ci V8 rated at 150 horsepower. A diesel engine was available for the V8 as well, a 350-ci rated at 105 horses.

Despite the smaller engines for the time, these cars can be tuned today to sit lower and ride faster. Many aftermarket parts are available.
