Same drivetrain as the GTP, and the SSEi. Comes down to weight. 150 pound advantage to the GTP.

Impalla SS?!? I saw one on the road (exactly like the pic) about a month agobut I thought it was an aftermarket thing. I thought they didn't make the SS anymore. It should be a fun car.

BTW: Just for name sakes reasoning, I still think it should have at minimum a V8 or better.

I believe they will be doing the same for the 2004 Monte Carlo SS.

The 3800 is finally getting the respect!

That'* funny b/c i was just reading an article how Chevy was making sure SS meant " V8 "..and now they are droppin 3800'*. Kinda sucks now cuz we have more competition. I've never taken a liking to the body still of the new impalas really. The Monte Carlo was iffy at first, but now they are lookin damn good..especially with the L67 I almost think i'd rather have the Monte over a GP cuz there are about 5 trillion GP'* on the road, kinda makes me happy to have an SSEi. I'd like to see the L67 dropped in a future Grand Am GT. That'* major speed and torque...for that body style, damn.

Hey that Impala sounds like the Bonne is being resurrected in a new form.
The drivetrain, suspension, tires.....

It will all come down to weight. The more features and comforts, the more weight.

I prefer Pontiac over most GM'* anyway. Mainly because of the aggressive styling and Pontiac is really starting to gear its products towards us young folk.

I was looking seriously at the Impalas before I bought my Bonneville. About two years ago, I got sales literature from GM on the Monte Carlo and Impala. The MC SS at the time really did not have the performace features I was looking for. The Impala was a bit bigger, but didn't have the SS option.

I told myself that I would get an Impala if Chevy brought back the SS option. Since I bought the Bonne, the Impala SS does not compare now. Close, but no cigar. It may be impressive for those looking at Impalas, but once you have owned a Bonneville, you know better.
