The Chevrolet Caprice and Caprice Classic are full-sized automobiles produced by General Motors in the United States and Canada from 1965 through 1996 model years and in Mexico from 1977 through 1983. This vehicle was the second model of the Chevrolet Impala.

Recent ChangesEdit

  • On Oct 2009, Chevrolet announced the return of the Caprice to the North American market, albeit only as a police interceptor. The Caprice PPV, is based on the LWB Middle East-market, Australian-built Zeta platform and is set to arrive in 2011 with an E85-capable and Active Fuel Management equipped 6.0 litre V8 producing 355 horsepower and 385 lb/ft of torque. For the 2012 model year, a smaller displacement V6 engine will also be offered. Power is managed via a 6-speed slushbox sending power to the rear wheels. That powertrain has been heavily modified to police spec with a high-output alternator, engine oil, transmission and power steering coolers. Other changes include 18-inch steel wheels with bolt-on center caps, larger four-wheel disc brakes with heavy-duty brake pads, heavy-duty suspension components, police-calibrated stability control system and driver information center in the instrument cluster with selectable speed tracking feature. As an added bonus, the seats are designed to accommodate their gun belts. Optional equipment will include spotlights; lockouts for the power windows and locks; and an "undercover" street-appearance package (9C3).[1]
