Chevy's Next Impala Shows Up In Dealer Ad?

Posted by: David Kiley on January 18, 2008


Thanks for showing this unlikely picture of Chevy’s next Impala, which seems to have shown up in a newspaper ad.

One can only speculate how a dealer might have gotten hold of the image and stripped it into a retail ad.

But it looks like another Lutzian winner to me. The current Impala, while competent, is a bit jowly in design. The last time I heard someone endorse an Impala was former NJ Senator and New York Knicks forward Bill Bradley who mentioned he drives one during an interview on Meet The Press last year. GM will need better buzz than that, and it looks like the design of the sedan will do just that as it has for the Malibu.

Looks to me more like the typical Lutzian loser, just a continuation of his heritage. The usual visual distortion, not to mention the impossible price--even of the so-called wheezer four-cyl Base Model. Three speed stick, knob is an option, hand-operated side glass/door locks, no sound system, all the electronic stuff extra, an extra hit for 'metallic paint', trunk liner and mat, floor mats for the cabin to hide the jute 'rugs'. Ah, but Std are those racing valve caps on the bias-ply tyre-mounted steel wheels with their plastic covers. And for an additional $499, one can opt for the hood with the 'power-bulge', sure to scare off any boy-racers.

One has to feel sorry for the Impala, a proud animal with an IQ higher than the usual badly cowed GM designer.

Noz; you sound as to be bitterly afflicted with an advanced case of 'Cranial/Rectal Inversion'
You're not describing the Impala, but rather every base 'foreign' offering. Let it out man!
