impaler 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.

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.

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.

donmateo 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.

I finally got mine taken care of. One of our neighbors has a 2015 Impala and hers has the correct console trim that my car should have had. I took a picture of it, and the vin and sent it to my salesman. He ordered the pieces for her car and put them in mine. SOOOO much better looking than that ugly gray. Also got the SD card installed, that the sales brochure said my car should have and didn't. Bought it on ebay, pulled the old one out and the new one plugged right in. Can't believe all the "cost saving" changes the 2016 has suffered. Having second thoughts on my decision..:-(

KERR Im sure there are some on here, I covered it all up with carbon vinyl wrap

impaler Got pics of your interior Kerr?
Our 15 Impala is all black interior with the brown wood look not the gray marble looking stuff.
04-21-2016 08:06 AM
KERR Mine is a 2015, got it in December. this one is black on black LTZ 2? ever option they offer.. all the trim is ugly. its like gray painted crap... when i ask about it, ( other 15 was pearl white) they said that get the wood / marble trim because of tan..

so when i ask on here they confirmed it as well. Not a big deal, but it was annoying and had no "wow" factor so i wrapped in carbon fiber..

On a side note that chrome is still blinding me on the dash... its either getting wrapped, or painted, or something..

I HATE how that clear stuff on the top is sticky (soft, not like glue sticky) and you can put your fingernail into it. I would expect it to be hard like factory trim but I guess then, you couldn't form it on curves. The pattern this company sent that represents the kit for our car put this shit on EVERYTHING including the two eyebrow like trims on the top of the dash. I did look inside a friends car, and discovered her Impala has the burl trim that matches our car. Her's is a 2015 LT w/gray interior.
That's funny, we had a 2001 Aurora and I thought the real wood was a great touch. That was a fantastic car, wish we still had it. We had a CTS V and if I could get one back I'd be the Aurora...
