2006 Monte Carlo SS

   The 2006 Monte Carlo SS is basically the same exterior with a few modifications most noticeably the front bumper and headlight combination and hood, this gives the car the grille that it was missing since 1995. The fenders have been slightly modified to flow better with the headlights and bumper.  The Monte Carlo Knight badge has been deleted from the car once again and the Chevy symbol has taken its place, like in the 1995-1999 models. The Monte Carlo script has been removed from the lower quarter-panels, the door protection bumpers have not returned from the 2005 removal.
     The interior has been slightly redesigned as well. The leather seating has a different pattern and the pen and pencil holder that was next to the gear shifter has been removed. The most noticeable change is the SS badge placed in the center of the steering wheel. The car has also been made to be quieter inside by using thicker glass on the side windows and adding a layer of elastic sound deadening material in the front dash panel.

Here is the new radio that is now being used in most GM cars. It is a major upgrade from the older model radio.
It has some interesting new features, such as Auxilary audio input in the front panel could be very useful for iPods or other portable devices.
There is also a very clear and bright display showing ample information about the station and it even shows what your preset stations are.

The new 5.3L small-block V-8 with DOD was developed exclusively for front-drive applications and produces 303 horsepower and 323 lb.-ft. of torque with DOD helping to reduce fuel consumption by up to 12 percent in certain light-load driving conditions. This produces more horsepower than the trucks have with a similar version of this engine.

The engine is combined with a Hydra-Matic 4T65-E electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission. The smooth shifting transmission is renowned for its durability and strength with high-torque engines. The transmission mated with the 5.3L V-8 is further enhanced to match the engine’s increased torque output.
