    Sadly at least the impala ss got a supercharger, whereas the Xtreme is available with a 2.2l :rofl:

    the first one of those supercharged 3.8's I see in a wrecker, I'm putting into my Beretta and putting a pulley on it :naughty: (350hp in a 2800 pound car? yes please! I don't care if its fwd or not... its a lot easier than converting to RWD )

    They should have just called the "new" impala the beretta or corsica instead of tarnishing the impala name

    I love the way GM digs their own grave. Makes it too easy for me.

    This ABORTION of an automobile makes me sick. Jon Moss needs to be shot for even THINKING of letting this pass as a successor to the real SSs.

    The SS nameplate is dead to me now. There are no more cars worthy of having it in GMs lineup (except the Vettes, which never have or will have that designation)

    The funny thing is, they probably both run the same 1/4 mile times stock. People just assume the Caprice is fast because it has a V8 and RWD.

    True, but in relative to what was available in 1996, the Impala SS was faster than most sedans at that time.
