Hello all,

I've been a fan on the 6th gen Impala for a long time and looking to get one within the next couple of years or so (gotta pay off my 2014 first). It seems the '94 model is a rare find. Other than the shifter in the steering wheel column, what distinguishes the '94 from the '95 and 6?

95 are on the column too. The unique to 94 things are I believe all are black( was available in black, dark cherry metallic and dark grey green metallic in 95-6) and they have the tiny mirrors mounted to the door rather than the larger ones up at the front corner of the window.

You understand it was essentially a trim package on a Caprice? Not saying don't buy one just don't buy into it being some super special car, a LOT of bad info out there about them having a different engine, or special gears and on and on.

The gears are 3.08 compared to the civilian Caprice 2.93 basically no difference. The rear discs came with the drum proportioning valve so under light braking the rear discs do almost nothing but work properly when braking HARD, can be modified to work right.

Forgot about the needle speedo in 96, yeah that and the floor shift make 96 the year everyone wants.
One often missunderstood mechanical item is ALL LT1 years of Caprice/Impala/Roadmster/Fleetwood use the later opti, they got the upgrade to vented before the Vette and f-body. The 96 cars are OBD2 and need a scanner, the 94-5 cars can be "scanned" with a paperclip. Nobody wants to mess with the pcms in those anymore though, if modifying most guys spend a fortune on the LS1 computer swap.
