    S-E Chevrolet Impala.

    Here's my rendition of what I'd like to see in a Super-Epsilon (FWD) Impala.

    It's designed to compete with the Ford Taurus, Toyota Avalon and Kia Cadenza. The "Impala" badge, usually located just on the C-pillar (or is it D-pillar?), has been relocated to just behind the front wheelwell.

    The rear taillamps are larger versions of the Traverse's taillamps, with two white centers and red LED rings around the centers. The left center is an amber signal lamp, and the right center is the reverse lamp. The front turn signals and foglamps are LEDs as well, and have a unique feature: At night when your headlamps are on, when you turn on your signal, the corresponding foglamp lights up until you turn the signal off - so you can see better when cornering.

    LS, 1LT, 2LT, LTZ with AWD available. A 290hp 3.6L V6 is the only engine.

    I like it, did you base it off the Regal?

    I like it but it needs an SS trim. Preferably with the 5.3L LS4 V8 in the current Impala SS. Tuned for more power (340-360 HP), a 6 speed automatic, and AWD standard. Or at least a Twin Turbo 3.6L V6.

    Nicely done. I hope that every gadget that you can get on a Taurus, Azera, Maxima, Avalon is available.

    I gave it a little bit of resemblence - it is on a derivative of the Epsilon II platform.

    Does this answer your question?

    Anyone remember this? It was the very first birds-eye interior I ever drew, and it fits this car perfectly. Just ignore the "Lumina" name.

    A.J. great interior. I could see me sitting in that cockpit and enjoying it very much.

    Agreed, nicely done. I really like the fact that this doesn't look like it is a behemouth. It looks a little more low-slung than other larger FWD vehicles on the market (Like the monsters that the Taurus and MKS are!)
