All New Super 2018 Chevy Monte Carlo - 2018 Monte Carlo
The 2018 Monte Carlo uses the new 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8, boasting 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. A new active valve exhaust system allows the cylinder cut off system to engage over a wider range, increasing gas mileage (by 25% on the highway), while an active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft with cam phasing provides maximum low-end torque for impressive standing starts while optimizing high-end power.
The 2018 Monte Carlo hood is functional — instead of a scoop (which is more about looking good than performance. It relieves negative pressure under the hood which helps cornering at top speed.
The all new engine is all about torque, which is moved “way, way down” in the torque curve. At the lower rpm range, there’s an 80-90 lb-ft torque improvement.
