I just did a 2016 Build and Price on an LTZ...wood trim, center console gray plastic like OP. Jet black/Mojave interior. Marble like wood with the center console in a different finish. Appears the other colors no longer offer wood, just gray plastic on the entire interior.

Strange. I go to the Chevrolet site and do a build and price and I see all of the trim levels and colors showing the grey wood like trim except the LS.
I actually don't see any cars online with the trim like the OP has.

Sounds more like a screw up somewhere rather than a cost cutting thing. Not all 2016 Impalas have the grey pieces like the OP has as can be seen in the dealer links I provided.

The pictures aren't great, but you can see the wood trim on the door, the gray near the shifter/cupholder:

Another: Chevrolet Impala LTZ | eBay

Again: Chevrolet Impala LTZ | eBay

Here: Chevrolet Impala LTZ | eBay

So, either product misplacement is rampant at assembly, or they removed the wood from at least that dark burl interior.

On the Chevy site it still shows the 2016 having the wood like grey interior pieces on LT and above. The LS has the ugly grey pieces.

Here is a 2016 2LT for sale at the Chevy dealer by me and it has the grey wood like trim inside

Yeah...None of those look like mine. Mine is gray burl looking. Reason I said that? Sure odd that I spend 40+ for a car, and have to argue about the features that it was advertised to have that Chevy just up and decides to stop putting on a car. Don't get me wrong, i love the car. It is the most expensive car I have ever owned and never thought I would spend that much for a Chevy, so that given I am not happy that I have had to fight to make it right. It's been a long time since I bought a brand new American car and had higher expectations of the experience. My last new car was a 2013 Kia Optima SXL, and there were no surprises with that one. That said, the car is big, comfortable, pretty quick and attractive. I'm not happy with the 20" wheels that I had to buy to get the adaptive cruise. They make a huge difference in the ride and quietness of the car. Why on earth would they make you spend 400.00 bucks on bigger wheels and tires to get adaptive cruise? That's just stupid..The 2015 Rental Impala we had was an LTZ, had the regular wheels and it rode so much quieter and smoother. The wheels are pretty, but I am more interested in the quiet ride rather than the look.

2016 2LTZ, Blue Velvet, Jet Black/Mojave, 20" wheels, sunroof, adaptive cruise, tech and convenience packages.

I agree with you on the big wheels. I have never been a fan of big wheels, just don't see the appeal. The 18" ones on ours ride comfortable.

If you look here, this is my car. You can see the burl trim that the car is supposed to have, which mine didn't:
