2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I have owned three of these Monte Carlo's; A 2000 V-6, a 2003 V-6, and now the 5.3L V-8. The V-8 is an interstate cruiser with it's long wheel base, drivers seat with lumbar adjustments, power and handling - a real joy on a long trip. The mileage running in 4 cylinder mode is impressive. In teh flat lands of Florida on cruise control i achieved 31 mpg!! Pretty amazing out of a 300+ HP V-8. I have added a performance chip from Jet and a K&N cold air intake. I have not had it dyno tested since those mods, but with hightest gas, the results are noticeable - guess 15 to 20 HP. This machine fits my bill and I am very happy with it. I have not seen another like it in Red Jewel paint and bra
Looks, performance, mileage. I receive comments from strangers all the time on what a beautiful car. A few Mustang owners have been surprised - guess they thought there was a V-6 under the hood. Sweet!
Not many - a Bose sound system, rear wheel drive, and about 50 to 75 more horsepower
