Default Anyone Like the New Impala?

Hey, I was wondering if anyone liked the new Impala. It doesn't matter what trim. I kinda like it, it looks nice and clean not busy or ugly, the taillights are alot better.

However, I'm disappointed in the SS, it'* not balanced, Chevy is just trying to please the crowd by shoving a big V8 in it. Well, a V8 is nice but a six speed auto would be nice and maybe more track tuning (it understeers a lot!)

But I do like the SS wheels, they're very nice... wonder what they would look on all years of Bonnevilles, hmm?

I like the 3.9L V6 Impy, I would get one with a console shifter and put some nice 18ers on it. I like the styling as I mentioned, I think the silver makes it look the best. Anyone agree?

Hey, has anyone driven a car powered by the 3.9L V6, just curious because it makes 240 hp same as a L67

Against the 5.3 small block, the 3.9 should be called the Chev Wimpy. It deserved a bigger engine.

Sorry, Im way into V8'*.

Rather have a Lucerne though, god I love that ride.
