Chevrolet Unveils Impala Indy SS
Supercharged Special Edition Salutes Indianapolis 500
INDIANAPOLIS - Chevrolet is introducing a 2004 Impala Indy SS to commemorate its long relationship with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Indianapolis 500-mile race.
The limited edition model will have a production run of 4088 units and is currently being offered through select Chevrolet dealerships in the U.S. and Canada.
The Indy SS package is based on the new-for-2004 Impala SS sedan. At its heart is GM's 3800 Series II supercharged V-6, delivering 240 horsepower at 5200 rpm and an impressive 280 lb.ft. of torque at 3600 rpm. The torque curve is consistently high over a broad operating range, providing instant off-the-line acceleration and ample power for highway merging and passing.
Unique to the Impala Indy SS are 17-inch chrome diamond-cut aluminum wheels, monotone cross-lace grille with "gold" Chevy bowtie emblem and a rear spoiler. There's no doubt as to the connection with the 2.5-mile speedway, as Indy's famous "winged wheel" logo is found on the front fenders and instrument panel, as well as embroidered into the front seat head restraints and floor mats. Like the standard Impala SS, the Indy SS is available only in a monochromatic black exterior, complimented with grey leather seating surfaces inside.
Chevrolet's entire 2004 Impala lineup offers a solid body structure, room for five passengers, plenty of cargo space, a surprising number of amenities for the price, and a track record of outstanding quality, reliability and durability. Highlighting its comprehensive safety package, Impala consistently earns five stars (the highest U.S. government safety rating) in frontal crash testing for driver and front passenger.
