Very nice interior and front end. LIke the 303 hp. Nice to see Chevy competing with Ford's Taurus. ChevyMgr, do you know how I can make my signature photo smaller?

Its a looker, and sharing a chassis with Cadillac might give it some nice driving dynamics.

So they stopped making the impala for one year? I heard that the caprice was replacing the impala.

No, the current Impala will continue in production for a few months, then the 2014's will be phased in for sale to the public. Automakers are allowed to sell cars for up to 18 months without changing the model year, that's why there are no 1983 Corvette's, production went right from the '82's to the redesigned '84's.

The Caprice is only available for now as a police vehicle, it may be released in a snazzier limited production civilian model, but the demand for it is deemed to be low in GM's thinking due to increased fuel costs. Plus the Caprice is built in Australia by Holden, so its expensive to ship to the U.S., and GM would rather have folks buying Corvette engined Cadillac's instead of less profitable Chevy's.

If I remember right there is actually an 83 vette, only one I think at the corvette museum in kentucky.

I'm not crazy about it. I actually think the new Malibu looks better than this. I do like the V8 option though!

They are FINALLY retiring that crappy looking vanilla pudding of a car!

Motor Trend has a few more photos besides these. This is the coolest looking Impala since '65.

I am not feeling it either.

I do not see a V8 option. Are you thinking that to have 303hp theu must be using a V8? From that article, they use the Ecotec 2.4L 4cyl with the addition of that new electric assist, a NEW Ecotec 2.5L 4cyl and a 303hp V6 3.6L which is the same motor that is in the V6 Camaro.
