No, seriously These are older pics, but it's growing on me already... Also, along with that, there's this news today... GM could move next Impala upmarket General Motors might move the next-generation 2009 Chevrolet Impala upmarket in order to prevent overlap with the 2008 Malibu, according to insiders cited by Automotive News. There's speculation the front-wheel-drive Malibu could steal sales from the new Impala, which is widely believed to be based on GM's new Zeta rear-wheel-drive architecture. The source told the trade publication it's too early to know how GM will position the new Impala, but a market analysis following the launch of the Malibu should give the automaker a good idea of what steps to take. The 2008 Malibu will be unveiled at the Detroit auto show in January. The most recent spy photos show a vehicle with a significantly bolder exterior design than the existing Malibu. The next Impala will seen an even more significant styling change, possibly introducing retro elements similar to the 2009 Camaro.
