I was a little disappointed in engines available and not being RWD. Oh well.

I love this car. If it were an RWD/AWD V8 platform I'd be pre ordering one as soon as I could.

This is one of the best impalas in a long time. One of the best since the 1994-1996 SS.

The new one does have the LFX v6 that produces 303hp. I'm sure with some tuning and a little bit of modding hitting 320 hp is in range with that motor.

I've driven a V6 camaro and those have some punch for a V6.

yeah I had a bit of that thought running through my head. Some of the styling reminds me of the VW CC.

Love the styling, but disappointed it'* not being offered with AWD. The Taurus and Charger both are.

I'm beginning to like it myself. My computer is a HP Touchsmart and my Droidx is touch, along with another one of my phones.
