Not a hideous car, but boy does it ever look OLD! I have a feeling that very few people will even notice the difference between a '00-05 and this '06, especially since things like the rear have virtually no changes--and the interior, for whatever odd reason, stayed 95% old and 5% new (the new only being the center stack electronics). A very weird "redesign", that's for sure.

The taillights, rear fascia, and badging are different for '06. I like it, actually.

The lamps no longer use a clear lens, they have a red lens. The bumper is smooth, has fewer contours, and of course the badging is of a different font.

If it has to have a spoiler, I prefer the flat style that's now standard on base cars, as opposed to the incongruous stand-up NASCAR style one.

The new front end looks racy to me, and it is subtly (sp?) different than the Impala.

This pic really shows the differences and simularities of each of the W-bodies. It also shows how better looking the Grand Prix's side profile is compared to the others. Wow... the Grand Prix is still growing on me. :P

Oh, as for the Monte Carlo. Um... why bother? :huh:

I'm telling you guys.. the Monte's rear end SHOULD be what the DTS got (just move the license plate are above the bumper and maybe widen the taillights a bit)

The Monte believe it or not does stand out in traffic. When I saw my first one....I turned my head. It looked sharp in traffic.

This car is a disaster! Base models with those silly spoilers and plastic wheel covers! From the a-pillar forward it looks just like an Impala. The sides of the car look stupid with no door moldings. The interior is mostly a carry over save the center stack with way too much hard plastic. WHere is the Knights badge? This car with all of it's cost cutting measures is hardly going to even register a blip on the scale. Most dealers didn't even seem to care that this car wasn't out yet and most attention was on the Impala and HHR. This car gets a solid D- on it's redesign and is a disgrace to the Monte Carlo name. The only one improvement I liked is the new engines.

It looks the same as the old one. What GM needs is a really cool looking rear-wheel drive Monte Carlo with a 6-speed or a new camaro.

I actually like it a little better than the 2000-2005 one. I wish they had used wood instead of silver dressups for the interior though. I think the reason the interior didnt get the major overdo that the Impala did was because it didnt get the same criticism for its design that the Impala did. We wont get started on the RWD thing.

I have always like the current Monte....and this new one even better...I like that it has closer ties with the Impala...heck I'd even be happy if they called it the Impala coupe.

It justs looks oddly disprpportioned, just like the 2000-2005. The best was around the '78 generation. I would be much happier with an Impala coupe that looks like the new Imapla than that, that thing, a disgrace.

Not a fan of the old one. Still not a fan of the new one. This is one car I can't wait for GM to kill. I just wish it wasn't so popular with the NASCAR fans.

This new Monte Carlo is pretty lame -- It looks huge from the doors, back to the tail -- They should just make an Impala coupe, change the front and rear clips a bit, put Knight badges all over it, and call it the new Monte... Such a great car name and heritage, such a crummy looking car... By the way: for what it's worth, the best Monte Carlo model year was 1972 - it was the last year of the original model, with some trim enhancements. My dad had a pale yellow one with a light beige vinyl top and beige ribbed cloth interior - sounds like a terrible color combination, but it was a stunningly beautiful car. I loved the dash, even with the fake wood; it was similar to the Malibu dash, and looked great, like all Chevy IP's used to. This latest model has "rental car" written all over it, and is in no way a car that is up to the Monte Carlo name and heritage.

Ah its alright I guess. Im a NASCAR fan but I dont really love the Monte. The only thing I really like on them is the ass end and how they run I really don't care for anything else.

Oh, it's no big deal, I'm sure there were some GM/Pontiac fans that thought the Aztec was great looking too- haha.
