Remote Start Retrofit

If your 9th Gen Impala did not come from the factory with remote start, is this something which can be retrofitted with OEM parts? Has anyone had any experience doing this? If so, please share details. Thanks in advance for the constructive comments.

To clarify: I am not asking about fitting a universal aftermarket remote start system. Kindly omit comments to that end.

Scroll down and enter the model, then Electronics comes up.

I found the Remote Start on the Chevy site. I called 4 Dealers in my area and got varying quotes. The price for the unit were all the same, but the install/labor varied. $150,$110,$100, & $92.

The only caveat is that 2017 is the last year listing a remote start kit; nothing for 2018 and up.

Background to my initial question: I am researching a new(er) Impala and it seems not all come with remote start (a nice option in the desert southwest). I'd like to assume the 2018 and up models are the same as the 2017 and lower in terms of remote start upgrade and/or all equipped with remote start, but have not confirmed this yet.
