    Question Is it true!?!? Is the Monte Carlo coming back?

    DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THE RUMOR IS TRUE?

    I sure hope so! My SS is going on about 5 years old and I am planning on holding out for the Monte's to make a comeback before trading it in for a new vehicle...or until it falls apart years from now if they don't come back. I have tried so many other cars, but nothing feels like a Monte Carlo. I even tried the 09 corvettes and I am just not impressed.

    Unless you have a source for the rumor this isn't a news article. If Monte Carlo did make a comeback and you're not impressed by the Corvette, prepare to be disappointed.

    You own a monte carlo but are disappointed by the corvette? You sound like a hard man to please.
    No there is no new monte coming any time soon. Camaro fills the roll of the midsized coupe for Chevrolet now. I don't know where you heard this or why this is posted in the suggested articles section. But I can do something to fix that last one.

    Re: Is it true!?!? Is the Monte Carlo coming back?

    I went to the Tarrant County Auto Show in Fort Worth today. While I was in the Chevy section I was talking to one of the Chevy reps about a possible return of a G8 type car and he brought up the Monte Carlo as possibly coming out. He wouldn't give me any details other than GM is using some of the best "stuff" from the dead brands and incorporate them into the new GM cars. I'm not saying the Monte Carlo is coming back but this representitive of Chevy brought up on his own. We'll see.

    Monte Carlo could mean an upscale Chevrolet, personal luxury 4-door coupe.

    Do we know what the new Zeta for America is called? Because if we get the Commodore, as we should, they can't call it Caprice if the Caprice is already sold here as LWB...

    Maybe the guy was hinting that the new chevy sedan was going to be called Monte Carlo? I don't know. Has the Monte Carlo ever been a sedan?

    Re: Is it true!?!? Is the Monte Carlo coming back?

    Four doors is a sedan, not a coupe, don't care what marketing spin they put on it. The Monte Carlo has always been a coupe. Two door with a nice six would be sweet. Good mileage, good space, some creature comforts (return of the swivel front seat would be cool...), and TWO doors. It would be in a class all its own. Mine is now 8 and has 125k miles (crap, time flies) and I don't want anything else for everyday driving. RWD would be cool, but FWD is good too. This one is awesome in the snow, and is fun to drive in the summer. But apparently I am one of 12 people that want something like this. My Monte may run forever.
    My Former GM Vehicles:

    1995 Grand Prix SE /3.4L giving out at 115K miles

    My Current GM Vehicles:
    2002 Black Monte Carlo LS 157k miles, 3.4L running strong (at least its all mine now, not the banks)

    1987 Chevy 3/4 ton truck 2wd, the first vehicle I drove to school. 100+k miles. Like a rock.

    Wish List:
    GM truck with a Duramax (Chevy or GMC)
    Pontiac Solstice (one of the GXP) RIP, guess I waited too long

    Re: Is it true!?!? Is the Monte Carlo coming back?

    Hey, I'm sorry to bring up an older post but I was in a restaurant today and a waitress there was commenting on my Monte Carlo and she said it was coming back around 2014-15 as a four door car. I just had to jump on here to see if it had been discussed. She claimed to have family in Detroit and said they know about these things. Is this just a rumor or is it possible the Monte Carlo could come back? She got my hopes up. Thanks.

    i think theyre confusing the monte (which has never been brought up as coming back) with the caprice police car that is coming to the u.s. soon. hopefully the caprice will be made into a civilian version too.

    Re: Is it true!?!? Is the Monte Carlo coming back?

    I hope it does, and as a FWD 2-door coupe too. I love my Monte and will not sell it, I'll take her out of the daily/frequent driver pool, but this car's staying with me forever. A new one is needed. Also, it's not a crime to prefer the Monte to a Corvette.

    Sounds to me like the guy you spoke with was "speculating"
    R.I.P:
    - 1993 Chevy Blazer 4x4
    - 1980 Pontiac Firebird
    - 1968 Dodge Dart

    You will all be missed!

    Yeah the Caprice makes sense. It just threw me off guard when she mentioned Monte Carlo since that doesn't seem to be a popular car. I love my 2003 Monte. It runs good and all I have to do is change the oil and put gas in it. It only has about 65,000 miles on it right now but I hope it lasts for another 5 years.
