I'm excited to see that the factory is getting prepared to make the Hummer, but I am sad that the Impala had to die for it to happen. An iconic name bites the dust.

Chevy ruined the Impala and made it such a bland car. It needs to go away for a bit so it can be revamped.

The impala never seemed to regain strength since its glory days of the 60's and 70's. Now that GM is moving away from sedans it is not surprising its days are over. Who knows, give it a decade, maybe they'll resurrect it like they have down with Hummer and make an electric impala SS. Given the trend right now it can be an SUV.

I have a feeling that won't happen. Closest they will get is with a Kia Stinger type of vehicle.

I sorry I would have to disagree. North American automakers seem to be dropping all of their sedan models. SUV seems to be the flavour of the month these days. But who knows what the future will bring.

Stylistically the Impala is way behind the Charger and Chevy never really turned it into a 4-door muscle car like Dodge did.
I agree, @Oakwood. The perfect Impala successor was the Chevy SS...THAT was the car to take the hammer to the Charger. The last-gen Impala was a nice car, very solid quality too, but they really maimed the Impala heritage starting with the Lumina-to-Impala reboot of 2000 with all ther FWD vehicles. If they had redone the SS on the Omega platform as the next Impala, with a Kia Stinger and Audi A7-like sportback design for utility, it may have worked.

I'll be interested to see if they ever end up making a big, sporty sedan for Chevrolet again once they shift to electric. Since the Camaro is likely going electric, a RWD impala with big hp and torque would round out the range quite nicely.
