    Re: Impala SS- gone for 2010.

    now im confused...
    under standard equipment it still shows the 3.9 (but its called LGD)...
    can someone decipher what theyre saying...

    I figured it out.. they are getting rid of the 3.9 in the 2LT... the LTZ will still have the engine.

    Re: Impala SS- gone for 2010.

    I'm glad they simplified the trim levels. Wasn't there three different levels of "LT" at one point? 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT. Then there was LS, LTZ, and SS? What a mess.

    The sad thing is that this car is scheduled to keep on going like this for YEARS.

    The Cobalt SS sedan is also gone, the SS can only be had as a coupe
    I'm sorry, if you were right, I'd agree with you.

    So this means that the FWD LS4 V8 is officially dead now, correct?

    They should just drop the Impala name and call it the Chevy Classic.

    Is it pure comedy that the example photo is of an SS?

    Maybe because the G8 will become the Impala SS ?

    Because that has great name recognition..
    I say drop the car altogether and bring on the Caprice. Even though its years off and unlikely it makes much more sense. The Impala and the Malibu are too stupidly similar competing in lets face it, the same territory.

    The Chevy Classic reference was that the car is a fleet queen. The removal of the SS only helps it solidify it.

    I do agree we need the Statesman/Caprice and the Commodore needs to stay here.

    Of course for some reason, Chevy has always had 2 midsize cars.
    It used to be Corsica/Beretta and Lumina... FWD Monte Carlo. Celebrity and Malibu during the Early 1980s then Corsica/Beretta

    More likely because GM disbanded the peformance division that made the SS.

    Another step in the Toyota-izing of Chevy.

    I took a look at the link, and the Picture looks so sad. I feel bad for the Impala name, because it gets eroded away each month it continues on.
