donmateo, no problem! I've documented this thread (including its URL) so it may be accessed by many departments at GM. You're right -- feedback is extremely valuable!

Stephen, thanks for posting a pic of the wonderful interior.

Best,

Thanks so much, Katie!

I have made this the Official 2014 Impala Thread now and also, Katie, the new URL reflects this name change. I do not know if the old one will work, so if you can update it in your database if you need to, that'd be great. Thanks so much!

I like it but I don't like it.

The grilles still look like 8th gen LT shit grilles. The chrome side molding needs to be burned at a high heat. Those rims are probably the ugliest rims GM has ever put on a car.

And even though there's no plans for a RWD v8, I can definitely drive a AWD TTv6. Assuming they give it similar HP to the Taurus SHO.

I really do like it. But I'm on the fence. I want to see a test drive review now!

Three powertrain possibilities
Depending on your budget and desires, the Imapala can be had with one of three engines: 2.4-liter four-cylinder with eAssist, a 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder or a 3.6-liter V6. The 2.4-liter Ecotec engine is good for 182 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque, followed by 195 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque for the 2.5-liter four-cylinder, which is then topped by the 303 horsepower, 264 lb-ft of torque 3.6-liter VVT engine with direction injection.

All three engines come mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and drives the front wheels. Fuel economy is expected to come in at 35 highway with eAssist, 31 highway with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder, and 18 city, 30 highway with the range-topping V6.

Safety matters
The 2014 Impala will also arrive packed with safety technology including Full-speed-range adaptive cruise control, which uses radar to sense forward traffic and automatically adjust cruise control. Collision mitigation braking, a Chevy first, which uses radar to alert the driver of a potential impact, applying brakes if no action is taken. Forward collision alert is similar to Collision mitigation breaking, but makes use of a camera instead of radar. Lane departure warning, side blind zone alert and rear cross traffic traffic alert round out the new electronic safety features.

Occupants can also rest assured that they are surrounded by no less than 10 standard air bags and OnStar.

The 2014 Impala will be offered in LS, LT and LTZ models, with assembly taking place at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck, Michigan, and Oshawa, Ontario, facilities. Pricing has not yet been announced – but expect pricing to start a bit over $30,000.

I would like to see the 3 taillights in the rear like the old impalas have. I am sure someone can design something new and similar to that.
I like the interior and I kinda sorta like the rims.
I guess they think chrome around the windows is the way to go but I say no.
Also, the mirrors are chrome and I dont like that.
I like chrome as far as rims go, on certain color cars, but to have so many chrome pieces just grinds my gears.
AWD or RWD and a V8 needs to be a must for the SS (if they even make one)
The Impala should set the standard for GM, Not the Caprice or anything else.
I would also be fine without that chrome strip on the doors.
Needs A Spoiler.

Chrome should be an option IMO and this is coming from me who just paid 700 bucks + to get my chrome rims back on my car.
Some colors look good with chrome and some do not.
Black trim or chrome should be an option IMO.

Did I mention A V8 and RWD?
Thanks
