The V6 SXT compares better with the Impala...but yeah, the hemi is nice!

Do those get the 8-speed yet?

Exactly.

Nice warranty on those too.

And the VVT Hemis get even better mileage than before...


380hp and can get 30mpg depending on wind and driver.
Tough combo to beat.
The mds hemi is a must have. The fuel economy of a sixxer with the roar of hemi in a split second.

It is worth noting that my friend's brand new Charger R/T is only a tick slower than my 6.1 in a side by side drag race. It is only at higher speeds where I walk on him, and my gearing is a bit better than his.

Add to this when I drive his car I can cruise until I get the MDS activated and then floor it and the car responds with no detectable hesitation at all. It's one of the most transparent systems in use today and it really saves gas if you take the time to learn how it works...

The thing I like best about the new Impala is the 4-spoke steering wheel.

Gives me the 6:00 o'clock position to rest my hand.

I'd buy the car for that reason alone.

Different strokes for different folks. That picture is a complete turn off for me. The video game center console and its ugly. I get the function of steering wheel however its not pretty. It looks cheap. That all being said looking forward to an upgrade in my rentals with the new GM.

That is absolutely hideous! If that's my rental upgrade...never mind, I'll take the Aveo!

Completely agree! The wife and I thought about trading her 2010 Impala in on a new one until we saw the interior first hand...gag!

While the material quality is WAY better than her 2010, the design is horrible. It's like they tried too hard to make it match with current trends and went over the edge design wise, too many swoops, curves and layers. Don't forget that steering wheel either, YUCK.

Super disappointed as now we don't have a replacement when it's time for the 2010 to move on.

Now, the 2014 Silverado, that interior is handsome.

It looks pretty nice to me. I'd be so happy to get that steering wheel that I wouldn't care about the video game center. I gotta have that 6:00 o'clock position for my right hand when driving at low speeds.
