1996 Chevrolet IMPALA SS - Super Sport
I bought this car new in 1996.
I couldn't pull the trigger on a 1994 or 1995 as they had digital
gauges and a column mounted shift lever, both of which I hated. Along
comes 1996 with extremely nice reworked analog gauges and a T shifter in
the console and I was sold. They only had one and it was Green/Grey
which is the color I would have chosen anyway. There were only a few
options available in 1996 and this one had them all. Plus it was the
LAST year for this iconic automobile. The last of the big Impala's.
people modified their SS's but I thought strictly factory stock was the
way to keep it, so I did not change anything. It has been a garage
queen all it's life up until a couple of months ago when I had to get it
out of the garage. Even though it is a northern car, it has NEVER been
driven in snow. I had other cars for that. History wise, the only thing I
had to have done to it was a new water pump and new batteries (of
Seventh generation (Impala SS, 1994–1996)
In 1991, the GM B platform was extensively redesigned, though it retained the same shortened frame design of the 1977 redesign. The Impala SS badge was resurrected at the 1992 Detroit Auto Show as a concept car designed by GM designer Jon Moss. The concept car was two inches lower to the ground than the regular Caprice, and was powered by a 8.2-liter (500 cu in) engine. Eventually, the concept car's engine was replaced with a 5.7-liter (350 cu in) engine derived from the Corvette in order to show the public what would be offered if put into production.
The 1994 Impala SS went into production on February 14, 1994 at GM's plant in Arlington, Texas,
and was almost identical cosmetically to the concept car, the only
noticeable change being the chromed bowtie logo on the grill (vs a red
logo on the concept). The car was, in essence, a high-performance
version of the Caprice. From a mechanical standpoint, it used the
police package as its base and as such got most of the equipment
formerly available only to law enforcement and government agencies. This
included a sport-tuned suspension with reinforced shocks and springs, a
high-capacity reverse flow cooling system (derived from the Corvette's
LT1), larger four-wheel disc brakes, transmission cooler, dual exhaust, a
higher-output electrical system, and other minor mechanical
The Impala SS was uniquely fitted with a standard 3.08 gear. The
limited-slip rear differential was standard (as opposed to the option
G80 on Caprices) and the suspension was an inch lower. A retuned LT1 5.7-liter (350 cu in) small-block V8 was standard on the Impala SS, making 260 horsepower (190 kW) and 330 pound-feet (450 N·m) of torque
(retuned from the prototype's 300 horsepower (220 kW) rating). The
primary difference between the LT1 in the Impala and the LT1 that was in
the Corvette and Camaro was that the Impala engine was fitted with
cast-iron cylinder heads instead of aluminum ones, and a camshaft that
was designed more for low-end torque than high-end horsepower. Another
difference was that the block casting for the Impala LT1 had 2-bolt main
bearing caps while the casting used for the Corvette LT1 had 4-bolt
main bearing caps. The transmission used in the car was the 4L60E,
which was an electronically controlled version of the previously
hydraulically controlled 4L60.
Cosmetically, the Impala SS received body-colored trim, which helped
reduce the sometimes "bloated" look of the standard Caprice, a unique
single-bar grille with no hood ornament and, a rear deck spoiler. It was
fitted with 17-inch (430 mm) brushed aluminum wheels with 255/50ZR17
all-season Z-rated tires.
1996 was the last year of production with 41,941 units sold. The 1996 Impala SS production went late into the model year; the last one being produced on December 13, 1996. It saw minor interior alterations, with the digital speedometer being replaced by an analog one, along with a tachometer. The shifter was moved from the column to the center console, and the engine was given an OBD-II computer control system (the camshaft was reground to adjust for the new computer).

UPDATE: The trucks have been revealed. Click here for all of the official details.
As promised, Chevrolet and GMC are offering a live webcast of the world premiere for the all-new 2014 Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500. After being teased with spy shots and blurry images like the one above for ages, now is the time to see the trucks in the metal, for real (well, as 'real' as it gets on a webcast, at any rate).
Shift your eyes down just below to see the reveal as it happens, starting at 9:30 AM EST. We anticipate having loads of images full technical information to share after the webcast, too, so truck aficionados should stay tuned. We'll also be bringing you live images of both trucks too, when we see them on the show floor at next month's Detroit Auto Show.
Kelley Blue Book announced its annual Best Resale Value Award winners, and we weren't too surprised to see the list dominated by Japanese automakers - mainly Toyota and Honda. KBB hands out the awards based on the projected residual value of mostly all 2013 model year vehicles, and Toyota skated home with a number of awards including 10 of the 22 overall categories and having five of its products in the top 10 for models with best resale value. KBB's Best Resale Value Awards were announced in the same week as the ALG Residual Value Awards, and there were many similarities between both lists, especially when it came to Toyota.
To come up with its winners, KBB measures depreciation over the first five years of ownership, and looks for the cars it expects to hold its value the best after this time; on average, the report says the 2013 model year vehicles will lose 61.8 percent of its value in five years. Of the 22 categories, 15 slots were filled by Toyota, Honda and Nissan products, while the Camaro and Porsche (Cayenne and Panamera) each took home a pair of awards. If Toyota has anything to be upset about in this list of cars, it's that categories for Hybrid/Alternative Energy Car and Electric Vehicle went to the Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Volt, respectively.
The overall top 10 models for the best resale value in 2013 are, in alphabetical order:
It looks like there some changes in store for the Chevrolet Camaro - the only thing is that we just don't know what Chevy has up its sleeve. Looking at these spy shots, we'd initially be inclined to think that there is just a minor facelift or a new special edition, but upon closer inspection, there are a few oddities about this car that definitely have us intrigued.
The most obvious difference on this prototype is the slightly restyled front fascia with a smaller lower air inlet and the two-bar grille. Then we get to some of the car's mysterious details. For starters, this fascia has the SS vent above the grille, but it looks to be blocked off. Granted this could just be a one-off piece used for testing. What really piqued our interest was at the rear of the car where it has quad exhaust outlets that are used on the ZL1. Could this be the LS7-powered Camaro that we reported on back in December?
At this point, your guess is as good as ours as to what we're looking at here, so let us know in the comments what you think this could be.
