I would love to have a black SS. This middle-eastern guy who owns the local liquor store drives one.

Hey, has anyone driven a car powered by the 3.9L V6, just curious because it makes 240 hp same as a L67
I've driven a G6 GTP w/ the 3.9L.
And??????
Um...it would take a stock SSEi in the 1/4 IMO (going from butt-dyno, so take it with a grain of salt). But keep in mind thats in a lighter vehicle with better weight distribution and a 6 spd. The L67-car might take it off the line b/c of the low-end grunt, but the GTP would walk away further down the line I think.

Overall it'* a nice motor, good smooth power delivery and fairly quiet overall. Decent gas mileage too (I think it was something like 25/29 or something).

Nope I like my generation better get em a sliver or red Impala SS (from 2005) although love the engine I love the old styling better. It looks to Camryish... Great interior glad theres a V8 as long as they sell and someone buys them it just won't be me. Get me a Lucerne CXL/CXS with a Northstar. Car and Driver gave it a good review actually *as good as they get for a GM car at least).

the past 2 impala ss'* have really disgusted me. how can you take a car with such a rich history of performance and make it fwd and put a v-6 in it? (no offense ) thats like making a v6, fwd corvette, or a 4cyl bonnie.

I was actually looking to buy an '04 Impala when I found my Bonnie. It would have been "ok"...but I'm very much into the newer gen bonnies. I saw an '06 Charger today. A saleman at work had it as a rental. It had to be the base model....outside was cool looking...but inside was BLECH! Uuuugly!

almost went with a 05 impala instead of my bonne. the thing that told me otherwise was, wood grain wasnt an option. it was a requisite.

I love the new G6 GTP coupe, i might buy one if they deside to supercharger it with the 3900


and yes i like the nes Impala loos really sharp from directly from the front, but loses something when viewed on an angle.

and for some reason im just not feeling the Lucrene, something about it turns me off

I dont' like the new Impalas. They styling isn't there for my liking. I do like the 2000-2005 models a lot more. Especially the 04 SS Impala with the L67.

Back to the Lucerne for a second



That just looks so proper, the proportions are right, the drivetrain is right...I love it!
