Caprice-based Impala SS due to bow in spring by
ALEX LAW (Toronto Star 10/30/93)
Production of the sporty and bad-in- black Impala SS version
of the Chevrolet Caprice has been delayed somewhat.
But the full-size sedan should start turning up sometime in
the spring, and at Canadian dealers no less.
Such exotica has not always survived the transition north.
Witness souped-up trucks like the Syclone and Typhoon from GM
or the Lightning from Ford.
When the Impala SS does arrive, it will have the
260-horsepower Corvette LT1 V-8 engine that is new to Caprice
The big car also will be hung with a suspension that General
Motors officials described as unique. And it will have anti-lock
brakes at all four corners.
The Impala SS is supposed to look as good as it cooks.
So it will get monochromatic black paint, body-colored
moldings, a new grille and a rear deck spoiler.
And let's not forget the Impala SS emblems that will ring
bells for fans of the '60s performance car from whence the
newcomer gets its name.
