    The 2014-19 chevrolet impala was the best car to come out of chevy since the original

    I Know people don't like the front wheel drive impala and I understand that, but the 2014-19 one was one of the best ones ever to come out of chevy since the golden era (1958-1996)
    after the debacle of the 2000's to early 2010 years, this current soon to be discontinue impala got it right and it was so nice.

    Love mine. I remember when I first bought people could not believe that it was a Chevy, let alone and Impala.. Used to trip me out that they used to ask if it was a Benz.. I would say "hell no.. I would never drive those POSs.. Its a Chevy, based on a superior Cadillac." Ironically the car in the video is my exact car, interior and all. Mine is Blue with the same color leather. I installed a Flowmaster exhaust that was originally on my traded in '11 Camaro RS. Sounded sweet.

    Absolutely! Not only is the Epsilon II platform Impala V6 one the best Chevy sedans ever made, it puts its Buick and Cadillac siblings (LaCrosse and XTS) to shame.

    My wife and I are thinking about buying a used one rather than some lame crossover. Thanks to steep depreciation, a 2016 or 2017 Impala LT V6 (or even a Premier) in very good condition can be purchased for under $20k. What an excellent value!

    2016 Cadillac CTS Performance

    Re: The 2014-19 chevrolet impala was the best car to come out of chevy since the orig

    It really was a terrific car. Looked amazing, had a beautiful interior, and, did I mention the looks? It truly blew the competition away.

    Damn shame consumer tastes changed and the large sedan is all but dead. I for one will miss the Impala.
    Current:

    2016 Cadillac CTS4 2.0T Performance

    2006 GMC Envoy SLT 4x4

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    I still see people staring at mine when driving through a parking lot. When it's all cleaned & shined up, it's still a gorgeous car even though it's almost 5 years old.

    Definitely the best looking GM sedan in a long time, but I wish they would have made the 3.0TT from Cadillac an option.

    It still could. Seriously.. the death of large cars here in the U.S. is a GM/Ford ploy against the Unions and we, the consumer, gets caught up in it. The Impala should not only return.. but for the duration of Omega or AlphaL, be slipped on top of one of those RWD platforms and given all the goodies including a LT1. If the Camaro can have it why can't the even more venerable Impala. I love GM.. but GOD DAMN I wish I ran GM's product development section.

    That styling on top of the CTS's bones would've been a hit w/ a SBC SS Variant which would've increased the bottom line on Alpha...GM could've then left the LWB Ep II to the Buick Lacrosse (Stupid name) and a Large Coupe (Velite)

    I whole heartedly agree. It is a good car and a nice looking one at that. I also think just like mbukukanyau in that it should have had an AWD variant.

    Re: The 2014-19 chevrolet impala was the best car to come out of chevy since the orig

    I like the 2014-2019 Impala better then the XTS and the 2010-2016 LaCrosse, but still prefer the outward looks of the 2017-2019 LaCrosse.

    The Impala, though, for the price was/is a much better value.

What pleases me the most about it was that ... I can say this is the first car that's come out, that was done since I left.

    Too bad they could not have put that design on Zeta, instead of the much more bland Commodore design.
