Fast Facts:
  • The 7th generation Impala was released after a 9 year absence. Since 1986, the model continued only as the Caprice
  • The 7th gen was only available in SS trim, and lasted only 3 years (1994-96)
  • This was the first Impala SS with 4 doors
  • To build an Impala SS, Chevrolet took a Caprice equipped with the 9C1 Police Package and shoved an LT1 Corvette engine under the hood. The engine was slightly modified (different camshaft, cast iron heads (vs the Vette’s aluminum) and 2 bolt main bearing caps) and produced slightly less power
  • The Police package included oversized front/rear sway bars, high-output alternator, lifetime-rated silicone coolant hoses, 4-wheel disc brakes, HD steel wheels w/ speed-rated tires, quick-ratio power steering with cooler, transmission coolers, certified digital speedometer, stiffer body mounts (with more of them), dual exhaust, anti-stab steel plates behind the front seats, and a 3.08 final drive
  • The SS also came with a trick rear suspension composed of De Carbon gas shocks, steel springs and an anti-roll bar. This rear suspension is what set the Impala apart – it felt composed and buttoned down, according to period road tests
  • BFGoodrich Comp T/A’s came standard, wrapped around 17″ 5 spoke aluminum wheels. Other features include a lowered ride height and a high-capacity reverse flow cooling system. The “Impala” badges were an old-school “throwback” design from earlier Impalas
  • Despite all the upgrades, the SS posted similar acceleration numbers to the Taurus SHO. This was mainly due to its taller 3.08 final drive ratio, which was intended to provide a higher top speed for police pursuits (sacrificing off the line acceleration). An aftermarket upgrade to 3.73 gears has proven to cut 0-60 times by half a second (6.6 vs 7.1)
  • A 404hp 383ci engine upgrade was available from Callaway in 1995 (referred to as the “Supernatural” Impala SS). The package cost $25,345 on top of the Impala’s base price
Key Model Year Changes:
  • The final year of 7th gen Impala
  • Chevrolet heavily revised the interior to differentiate it from the Caprice. A tachometer was added, and the entire instrument panel switched to full analog (dumping the old digital speedometer). Most importantly, the gear shifter moved from the column to the center console
  • In 1994, the SS could only be ordered in Black. In ’95 and ’96, the SS was available in 3 colors: Black, Dark Cherry and Green-Gray
