The special edition shares the standard Impala’s drivetrain, a 3.5-liter V-6 with 211 horsepower and 214 pound-feet of torque and E85 flex-fuel capability.
New features on the special edition include a retuned FE3 sport suspension; four-channel anti-lock brakes; a rear spoiler; eight-way power driver’s seat; a leather-wrapped steering wheel; black carpet and floor mats; special badges and sills; and a choice of red or black paint. A year’s subscription to OnStar and its navigation system is standard as well.
The Impala range also offers — and the 50th Anniversary edition has as standard — a rear seat that flips forward to expose a storage bin molded into the car’s floorpan. The seats also fold forward, and with the seatbacks flipped down, offer a pass-through to the Impala’s trunk.
The new Impala edition goes on sale in the spring.
