im not going to say its an ugly car. aint sexy either but if it were rear wheel drive and had a v8, i'd drive it. i think it looks a little classy. but thats just me. chevy needs a bold design change to spice up thier market.

Ain't no way in hell that's the new (read REAL new) Impala. Look at the greenhouse - identical to the current model. That's just a revised front and rear job. Same windows, doors and handles, same rear window. Why? Who knows. maybe another re-hash to hold us over? Perhaps they are going to do something like Ford did with the 500 and Fusion. Though I don't see the need for that with the Malibu out there. Perhaps it's simply a test platform for a new engine. Perhaps it's just out there to create confusion such as this.

Here's a question - why is there so much wheel gap up front and so little in the rear?

Maybe they are testing it as a hybrid with batteries in the back.

There's no way that's the Zeta Impala.

My guess is an MCE on the current car, looks just like a 2006 from the side.

Actually I think you may have hit it with that idea. That would make perfect sense. Either a Hybrid Impala, or a dedicated nameplate built off the Impala as a hybrid. I'm subscribing to this idea for now. It's the only explanation that works based on what we know.

It is believed that this car is the next malibu, and not the Impala...

I am hearing its the new Malibu. We shall see. There was also talk that Impala would stay FWD, and Bel Air would go on Zeta. I haven't heard as much along that line recently though.

A 2006 Impala SS will show tail lights to that one.

But I kinda agree, RWD is gooder.
