With an experienced team and a lot of data.
Looking for middle ground, GM introduced the Chevrolet Monte Carlo in 1970. It was a personal luxury coup based on the 1969 Pontiac Grand Prix. Sporty SSpackages were now concentrated on the Chevelle, Monte Carlo and Nova, though you could still get an SS 396 option for the Impala. A new and very elegant Camaro was introduced in mid-1970, though no convertible was offered.
The full size Chevrolets, meanwhile, were face-lifted. The loop front bumper was dropped and the rear bumper redesigned with vertical taillights incorporated in it – still three on each side for the 1970 Chevy Impala. Front fenders were now crowned over the quad headlights and the Impala Sport Coupe and Custom Coupe shared the formal roofline of the Caprice, rather than the fastback. Full-size car sales were still led by the 1970 Impala.
Impala prices began at $3012 for the four-door Sedan to $3,589 for the nine-passenger Station Wagon. The base engines were still the 155 bhp six and the 250 bhp 350 V-8.
