Other things ive noticed,

remote start built into key
menu/select option on radio (mp3/ipod integration)
Phone option on radio (bluetooth)
dead pedal on floor next to clutch
No door lock/unlock button/toggle on door panel
strut for hood lift
The battery is probably going to be in the trunk for better weight distribution. The door lock unlock button looks like it is between the HVAC controls right under the hazard flasher button. One button centrally located is fine with me .
The strut will probably change to gas struts, remember this is just a pre production car, there will be changes.

phew, the 370 tq gauge is of the V6!
being how i call myself "cardumb" are those numbers good for a v6? i'd just like to know if they are,..how good are they?

It is coming along, and more and more its growing on me. However a few things:

Absolutely *hate* having the dials next to the vents for opening and closing. They really ruin the flow of the dash. They have a "we forgot about them at design time, so we just threw them on the sides" look. If anything, rotate them to a vertical layout and flush them up against the side of the vent.

The HVAC controls are starting to wear me down where they look better with each iteration. Still not sure.

Otherwise, its getting there!

On the picture of the door, the button we had speculated as being a possible "fuel door release" button is actually ON the door. If not for the fuel door what else could it be for? Trunk release??

Also, maybe the lock/unlock buttons under the flashers button could possibly be a positraction rearend??

A few things. Most modern cars have trunk mounted batteries, so no surprise there. I love the central door unlock button. Just makes sense that way. Power mirrors, check. The box above the mirror might be some kind of home-link, like programmable buttons to open garages, gates, etc. Key looks to be a switchblade style like VW. Nice classy touch I think. The vent knobs don't look tacked on to me, but that's just my opinion. They could be better, but they aint bad.

Wow, love the gauges and the engine cover...hoping all the engines come standard with one.

Not too sure about the long row of buttons for the radio, but no way that'd stop me from buying one.

Absolutely adoring it so far, just hoping/praying that the concept's shifter will at least be available aftermarket, if not stock.

Everything looks pretty good so far....but my not sure of the headlights. Why didn't they leave the single headlight like the concept. Mustang and challenger (sorry) have them?

I've no doubt we'll see the single headlight (just check the pictures from LAX from an earlier post). The headlights in this pic were probably what Mr. Settlemire was referring to when he talked about running down the hardware store for some temporary lights.

The only question is will the lights be halo or just normal like the current Mustang's.

I hope that they resize that "box" above the rearview mirror as well. I believe that the button on the door is a trunk release and not a fuel door release. I also doubt that the button between the HVAC is a posi on/off. The 370 torque sounds right on the V-6 if it's the 3.6 DI. I'm still up in the air about the radio and I love the way dash looks at night. The info screen looks very trick. I still hope that they open the vents on the V8. The headlights look like the halo's to me, but what is that light above and to the right? looks cheap. The battery must be in the back it looks tight with the 6 with the 8 I don't see where it will fit. Great pics please continue to fuel the fire.

The Mustang GT makes 320 ft lbs of torque with its V8, your Impala makes either 205 or 225 ft lbs with its V6. Most cars with a V6 have 200 - 250 ft lbs of torque, and V8's typically have more than 300, there is no real range.

I think it should be noted that it is extremely unlikely that there will be a 370 ft lb V6, its just way too high.

The radio and HVAC controls look really simple and easy to use. I like that. I wonder if it will have auto AC as an option.

I'm pretty sure the shifter we're seeing now will not be the shifter we're getting on the production model. It looks like it came from the same Auto Zone that the headlights came from.

The 370 lb/ft of torque gauge looks about right for the 3.6L DI. It gives enough room for power modifications. So I think that is good evidence that will be one of the engines offered.

Notice there is no Aux input jack on the radio face. So it is probably hidden is some compartment somewhere.

Overall, the more I look at it, the more I like it.

Unless of course this is a V8 and the cover, etc are only made to throw us off?

Or it could be a V6 and both models will just have the same torque gauge.

Or, since the DI V6 will have around 300hp, maybe it does just have a lot of torque as well.

Just some thoughts

I was having a "special" moment, that cheap looking thing on the upper right of the headlight was DUH the other headlight! I thought it was a turn signal or something. I've also rethought the halo light. Wrong again. Life is like a box of chocolates......

I think that button on the door is a mirror adjustment. I looks to have a driver/passenger selector and a rotating/pivoting adjustment button. But maybe not. Who the heck knows!!! Just cant wait to sit my backside down in one of these babies!!!!!!!

When I first saw the show cars' headlights, and those on Bumblebee in the movie, I was disappointed. Now that I've seen the quad setup in some of these pictures, I'll give ANYTHING to get the duals back, halo or no!

Of course, I'd give ANYTHING +1 for the halos!!

the 3.6 di makes 273 ft lbs. which is almost exactly 75% of what that gauge reads. But the pointless thing about a torque gauge is that the 3.6 DI always makes over about 210 ft lbs. so that needle would always stay between 210 and 273, which is nothing
