Why did GM stop making the Impala SS?!!
By portert0224 on


1996 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan


I love this car and plan on buying
another for my wife and one for each of
my five kids! If you want a fun, fast,
roomy 4-door modern muscle car, this is
your car! My 96 SS ran a 14.67 quarter
mile when it was stock. I added a cold
air intake and K&N filter and it ran a
14.53 quarter mile. This SS will
outrun any stock 5.0 or 4.6 Mustang.
It is very reliable. It still has the
stock battery that came with the car
and it has had only two mechanical
problems--the driver side window came
off track and the wiper switch
malfunctioned, all occuring after
80,000 miles! It gets 21-24 mpg
depending on my lead foot. Awesome car!

Best Features

The LT1 350 is easy to modify for increased performance. I love to see the shocked look on Mustang owner's when your 2-ton 4-door SS outruns their pony! It is totally reliable and gets great gas mileage.

Worst Features

A stronger tranny with a high stall converter and shift kit or a 6 speed manual transmission. 3.73 gears, cold air intake with K&N filter, stainless headers, 18x10" wheels, 335/0/18 tires.
