    I heard rumours that the Impala will be getting a V8 in the near future. :eek3: Not sure if it'll only be in the police package, or if they'll also put them in civilian models.

    That'd make a nice SS, even if it's still wrong wheel drive.

    FWD = LOSE.

    that car is a fucking disgrace to the name "impala"


    bob lutz needs to get cracking on some yummy stuff.

    is the GTO selling well? I don't see very many.

    It's not a bad car at all really.

    It's just as fast as the last Impala SS stock, and it likely handles better.

    How in the fuck is the 3800 based on the LS1 ?


    on a side note the N/A 3.8L for the police interceptors is surprisingly strong...............

    Yes, and you won't see very many since it's a very low production car.

    The engine in this car is in NO WAY related to the LS1. It's the old blown Buick 3800 V6 that's been around for years.

    Those Impalas are actually pretty nice to drive... the regular n/a V6 has a LOT more power than you would expect, and the car handles surprisingly well for a big, plush riding sedan. I'm sure the SS is vastly better with more performance-oriented suspension & tires. FWD is always going to be its weak point, if only it was RWD with that engine....
