    Dechromed Impala looks well good.

    2014 Chevy Impala Sits Well On Big Vossen Wheels

    There really is an art to getting the look of your custom car right. Some overdo it, while others are too hesitant to make changes and people just end up calling their cars sleepers.
    However, you can never ever really go wrong with a suspension lowering kit and some big rims sitting on an inch or two of rubber. Any car will look better, even one that didn’t look so hot in the first place…

    Thankfully, Chevrolet have done a great job of styling (and engineering) the Impala and if the extent of the modifications is not excessive, it wears them well - it's cool enough for some people to even have its own song. The car we’ve posted a video of below is riding on Vossen wheels, that are of a simple and elegant design – they suit it well indeed.

    It belongs to Behind the Scenes film-maker Derick G, and the video portrays a day in his life, the day he drives to a studio for a photo shoot dedicated to his ride – the photos taken that day can be found in the gallery below.

    I'm generally not a fan of modified cars, but that one looks nice! The wheels don't overwhelm the car, which is usually my biggest criticism of after market modifications.

    Probably the most flattering angle of the New Impala as it doesn't emphasise that stupid hip line and Korean rear end

    I like it with less chrome as well

    As a whole I like the look of the Impala however I do think the boot is too big (I get it's an American thing) and it seems they have yet to master consistent panel gaps for the bonnet. It's probably the best looking Chevrolet sedan that GM have ever designed. Gambled and won.

    My female cousin purchased one, it is a nice car, & I am coming around, but I still think it would have looked better on a RWD chassis. I hope sales do pick up. One more thing 20's and 22's and even 24's are not considered big wheels at all anymore. lol
    IF IT AINT RWD; AND A CHEVY I DONT RIDE IT!!!!!

    ALL CHEVY'S NEED TO BE RWD!!!!!

    Re: Dechromed Impala looks well good.

    I was at the dealer for service about a week ago and the impala s a beauty for sure...but the msrp s were all at 40 large....at least at this dealership...

    Big bucks for the big sedan...


    Sure it was the LTZ probably close to loaded...

    I'm just suggesting the price surprised me...

    I did see a four cylinder version for 28?

    I imagine its price competitive with the various Taurus and Chrysler v6 300 series cars?

    40 large .....wow

    Why are you surprised? It's not a freaking W-body anymore.
