It seems the 5 year old Chevy Impala is holding its own against the Camry and Accord. That may cause Chevy to rethink making the Impala a RWD auto. While enthusiasts welcome RWD I am not convinced the average auto buyer, especially females, gives a hoot for RWD. It might be that FWD or AWD is preferable to the average buyer especially anywhere it snows. GM will get to see some results next year. The Ford 500/Merc Montego will be FWD with an AWD option. The Chrysler 300/ Dodge Charger is RWD. GM gets a chance to see where the public mindset will be and that could cause some rethinking of GM strategy. Opinions anyone.
