    All-new, Zeta-based Chevrolet Impala

    As part of my own dream Chevrolet lineup, the Lumina takes the Impala's spot as a full-size FWD sedan. The Impala is now on the Zeta platform, sized between the Holden Commodore and Statesman.
    The new Impala is basically a productionized SS concept, with some minor changes to keep the Impala lower on costs. The overall design of the SS concept is still present, including fully functional side vents.
    The new Impala is offered with two engines split over three trim levels. LS and LT get a direct-injected 3.6L V6, good for 305hp, while the SS gets a slightly detuned 6.2L "LS3" V8, good for 425hp. All Impala models are RWD-based, but AWD is the only drivetrain. A 6-speed automatic is standard across the board, with a 6-speed manual available on the SS.

    So, may I present...


    So...what does everyone think?

    I love it, i like how the line coming from the headlights fades into the front door and the rear end looks good too. If this was the next generation Impala i would be a lot more than i'm hoping for, at the moment. Nice job!

    Ditto. I like how it looks like the malibu, but not too similar. Is still its own unique design, but it has family styling cues. Very nice
