2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo - Price Quote

Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

The GM Performance Division has been working hard over the past few years to develop high-performance models just barely fit for legal road driving. Chevrolet has benefited from this zeal, offering such high-powered models as the new 2004 Impala SS and the 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Supercharged SS.

The 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Supercharged SS is definitely the big news for Chevy's midsize coupe. It has a revved-up engine, performance equipment and a style that begs to be noticed. Inspired by the NASCAR Winston Cup Monte Carlo racer, the new Supercharged SS blurs the line between racetrack and street track.

Available Models
The 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo is available in three models: LS, SS and the aforementioned Supercharged SS model.

Interior Features
The two-door, five-passenger 2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo has as much as 7 more cubic feet of interior room than any non-GM competitor in its class. Though it has a sports car design and an attitude to match, it cannot hide the functional side of its nature.

All Monte Carlo models feature an advanced climate control system with individual driver and front passenger temperature settings. A standard 60/40 split-folding rear seat makes Monte Carlo's 15.8 cubic feet of trunk space easily accessible.

The Supercharged SS features an interior with a six-gauge cluster with boost gauge, full door-width kick plates featuring the Monte Carlo nameplate and "Supercharged SS" badging.

Exterior Features
The 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Supercharged SS can't help but distinguish itself on the outside as well. In addition to color-keyed bodyside moldings, full-perimeter ground effects and integrated fog lamps, it also has a race-inspired spoiler and dual bright stainless-steel exhaust tips.

LS models receive a 3.4-liter V6 engine with 180 horsepower and 205 lb-ft of torque. Stepping up to the SS model gets you a 3.8-liter Series II V6 with 200 horsepower and 225 lb-ft of torque. 4-speed automatic is the transmission of choice for all 2004 Monte Carlos.
The Supercharged SS has a 3.8-liter supercharged Series II V6 engine that pumps out 240 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.

The Supercharged SS has suspension and chassis enhancements to mirror the feel of a racecar. The spring rates are stiffened in both the front and the rear, and the rear ride height is lowered by 10 mm. This combination helps reduce body roll in cornering and improves handling.

Safety and Security
The 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo also shares a racecar's attention to safety. Available safety equipment, depending on model, includes antilock disc brakes, a side airbag, the OnStar system, a tire-inflation monitoring system, a passive theft-deterrent system and remote keyless entry.
