The base engine was a 229 cubic-inch V6 rated at 110 horsepower. An optional overhead valve 305 cubic-inch V8 was available, offering 150 horsepower. The Super Sport Package, Z65 was once again made an option in 1983. Chevrolet re-introduced the SS package in 1983, following a twelve year absence. The Monte Carlo SS models had European body color-coding, a new front fascia, a V8 engine, and a rear spoiler.

The base Monte Carlo came in ten body color with five interior color choices. Body styles included a 2-door Sport Coupe with pricing beginning at $8,550 and rising to over $10,000 for the SS. Standard equipment including full wheel covers, body-color bumpers, power brakes, power steering, twin bright mirrors, chromed headlamp bezels, a stand-up hood ornament, body-side moldings, and a compact spare tire. Inside, occupants were treated to a full-width front seat with folding armrest, leather-like dash applique, day and night mirror, color-keyed steering wheel, locking glove compartment, lighter, courtesy lights, and door pull straps.

For 1983, Chevrolet produced over 96,300 Monte Carlo Sport Coupes.
