Default A Chevrolet with some style????

Look at this pic of a camouflaged Chevrolet mystery Sedan....

Could this be a replacement for the Impala? It is assumed by the person who took the picture that it is a 2008 Model (Hans G. Lehmann) His description says the car is a FWD and perhaps based on the Buick Lucerne due to the similar shape of the rear fenders. What do all of you think? I think it will be a model sold alongside the Impala perhaps under the Caprice name or another heritage name. BTW, General Motors imported a NEW Holden Commodore and a Holden Caprice for the exec'* at GM to drive for possible replacements for a Full-size Buick, Pontiac, and Chevrolet. The Bonneville may come back or Pontiac may get the rumored G8 sedan afterall.

New Malibu

Grille looks to funky. Maybe it will look better once the camo is off.

Edit: Link fixed.

I'd buy the Malibu. Much smaller than a Lucerne, and too small to be an Impala.

yea, I guess the Malibu is actually sticking around this time I'm really more into big sedans though like the mentioned Lucerne, I love that car; If I purchased somehting new it have to be between that and the SS series Impala/Monte Carlo, as far as GM goes,

Midnight blue 06 Impy SS...amazing machine, my uncle has one...words fail me. Its fantastic.

However the V8 Lucerne in diamond coat with with OE 18 chrome rims...I've only seen one on the road, but be-still-my-heart.

The whole GM lineup has some style now fellas...havent seen a lineup this good in a long time. Right from Saturn through Cadillac, its lookin really good right now.

They do cold climate testing on the cars as well so I am guessing thats what the cord is for?

GM really needs it. I anything ever happened to my baby, I think I'd really look hard at some of the new models that are coming out

Eh the Lucerne'* are kinda dead feeling cars. Great as a couch/road trip/city driving. But not an invigorating drive. I was much calmer driving around for the 5 days i had one.. I'd stick with the slo'rora..

As for the pic, the dice made me laugh. Front end is kinda questionable looking..
