Impala. Same sort of controls as a Silverado but on the right side of the steering wheel.

Good deal.

I have to say, Impala's one of the few GM vehicles where even if you opt for a lower trim, it still looks like a premium product.

Because you already paid 27K for the cheap version

And you would pay $26,685 for a W-body 2013 Impala LS before incentives.

I don't think a lot of people realize Impala has ALWAYS supposed to have been a pricey car. It's just the W-body was fleet dumped so drastically (and GM's ROI had been achieved forever ago) that GM could offer insane incentives.

Honestly with how improved the 2014 LS is, it's insane they were able to offer it for just $1k over the 2013 LS.

I'd expect this to become a Buick over a Camaro.

Agreed, as I've read this could possibly carry over into a Grand National model for the U.S. market. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought this car was also based on Alpha like the ATS.

Its a very striking design for sure. I'm not exactly sure how I feel about it just yet (at least the front view). I mean part of me really loves it, and part of me thinks maybe those two huge vent looking things are a bit much and overdone?

It is Alpha based. And the big vents are more or less an Opel thing. It's the reason the Regal GS has those two fang-shaped vents up front.

I can easily see a few tweeks here and there and it could be a camaro! Take away the chrome piece. Make the scoops smaller and down to the corners with some fogs and make a small upper grill and a larger lower grill and bingo you have my next car.

P.S. add small round tailight's ala 70-73 camaro, or 63-67 corvette!

Wife was talking about getting a Buick again when it's time to get rid of her Saturn. I could see her in one of those. Maybe then we could take her car once in a while when we go somewhere.

Again. Regardless of what badge it has on it it's still a 2 door v8 based on the same chassis as the up coming camaro so it will be a hint at the next camaro.

And just exactly where was a V8 mentioned?

You guys are reading waaaaay too deeply into this. There's a pretty good chance nothing will come out of the concept at all.

Not everything GM does is related to Camaro. Alpha or not. A better indication would be ATS Coupe.

I'd definitely consider it.

I'm planning on tearing apart the door panels and installing sound deadening material soon. That'll probably take care of whatever's rattling in the passenger side door and make her quieter.

I think it's pretty funny, people on here are so Camaro Obcessed that any concept GM shows now HAS TO BE a hint of the 6th Gen Camaro.
From the Tru 130R to the Code 140S, to the Bumblebee T4 concept, to this...
People just go apes**t thinking they are going to ruin the Camaro.
Just calm down and take your meds

I can only imagine what will happen in a few months with whatever concept Cadillac's showing at Pebble Beach.

The international divisions do this all the time. They'll release a really good looking concept to preview their upcoming design language for the next few years. For example...



This became the Insignia and our Buick Regal.



This became the Holden VE Commodore and our Pontiac G8, and a good deal of the design made it into the current VF model and our upcoming Chevrolet SS.
