1983 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Manufacturer Promo

The 1983 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, like the mechanically similar Malibu, got only a slightly revised grille to mark this version as an 1983 model. But midyear would bring a whole new breed of Monte. As with Malibu, the small 4.4-liter V-8 engine option was deleted.

Once again, Chevy’s 3.8-liter V-6 with 110 horsepower was standard in 49-state cars, while a similar Buick-built engine was used in California. Optional were a 150-horsepower 5.0-liter V-8 and a pair of diesels: a 4.3-liter V-6 with 85 horsepower and a 5.7-liter V-8 with 105 horsepower. Neither diesel proved very popular.

    The 5.7 liter diesel V8 must have been the Oldsmobile 350 diesel. Such engines would be weak sellers, due to their mechanical woes.
