For 1999, Chevrolet adds a new Corvette hardtop model to its coupe and convertible, and introduces a new pickup truck, the Silverado, which is the first redesign of its pickup truck in 10 years.

Coming early in 1999 is the new 2000 Impala four-door sedan. Chevrolet says it has the interior room of a larger car but the exterior size, handling and responsiveness of a midsize car. The base engine will be the 3.4-liter V-6 rated at 180 horsepower (hp). The optional engine will be the 3.8-liter V-6 producing 200 hp. Also coming this year is the 2000 Monte Carlo in LS ("sophisticated, yet sporty") and SS ("ultimate, performance-oriented) models. It promises newly designed seats, a NASCAR-inspired gauge cluster and RoomFirst design that optimizes interior space for maximum comfort. Monte Carlo gets a 3.4-liter V-6 and a 3.8-liter Series II V-6 (standard on SS models).

The hardtop Corvette carries the lowest base price of the three models ($38,777) and features the Z51 suspension with stiff springs and large stabilizer bars. It comes with a six-speed manual transmission. The optional Active Handling (stability-control) System is available on all models.

Changes to the rest of the car line are minor. The Prizm, Malibu and 1999 Monte Carlo get new exterior colors. The Metro coupe and sedan feature a larger four-cylinder engine. Cavalier changes include head restraints for Rally Sport Coupe models and engine refinements. The Lumina LTZ gets some previously optional equipment as standard; the 200-hp 3800 Series II V-6 is the standard engine for 1999. Camaro gets a larger gas tank, and traction control is now available on all models. Other changes include electronic throttle control as standard on V-6 coupe and convertible models; a Torsen differential is standard on Z28 models and included with the Y87 Performance Package on the coupe and convertible.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
