The changes to the Impala are completeley lame. The 2 best colors are being deleted. Bodyside moldings now cost extra! The best wheels in the form of the machine faced 17" 5 spoke rims on the LT3 and LTZ are being replaced by plastic wheel covers! No more 8-way power drivers seat on LS and LT models but XM radio is now standard. GM should fire there future product planners right now and hire someone with some common sense. This is what the 2008 Impala changes should read:

Std 3500 V6 upgraded to 224 HP like Aura/G6/Malibu Classic

Bodyside moldings left as std equipment on all models

New grille on Impala LS, LT and LT2

LT3 model deleted and same content moved to LT2

Base 16" alloy wheels redesigned

Glovebox light added to LTZ and SS models

Overhead storage added as std on all LTZ and SS models

LTZ with new sport tuned suspension

Floor shift indicators now included on all models with bucket seats and console

Shouldn't a glovebox light be standard on all models? Gosh even my breeze has one.

I wouldn't say a car is a f**k up cause it's ugly, the Malibu isn't pretty outside or inside, but it was equipped nicely for the price and was one of the safest mid sizers on the road, but I'm not saying thats why they have a classic for it, they are just probably getting rid of what they have left of it.

I suppose the Maxx was useful but still nothing most people would buy. I dare say I'd an import before buying it (well I exagerrated a bit, I'd probably buy a Fusion if I wanted a midsize sedan or of course the Aura).

The car just pissed me off. It was so uncompetitive, every time I saw one I just thought to myself how GM needed to really get its act together and take a leadership role when it comes to its cars. And..........then came the Malibu SS. <_<

Yeah true, but I look at it this way, when the car debuted it wasn't the greatest then but it was somewhat competent with the rest of the mid sizers, but as time went on its competitors were either redesigned or updated and all the Malibu had going for it was a new front fascia and well equipped trim levels.

So, the Cobalt has a lot of new features standard that really make me hate my 2005. Side curtain airbags, ebony dashes, and XM Radio all standard.

:scratchchin: It may make sense to hold off on a car til the 2008 Cobalt becomes available....but will it have any cosmetic changes?

Uh, why did the SS/SC get deleted?! :angry2:

Its slated to be replaced with a turbocharged SS powered by the same drivetrain as the Solstice GXP and SKY RL (260hp 2.0l)

What the heck..? I'm glad they ditched the SS label on the N/A Cobalts, but why get rid of the S/C model?? That was one of the only SS's I thought was actually worth the badge!!

EDIT: Thanks for the info, flybrian. I assume it will be a FWD variant?

OH! Phew! Well, at least they're not abandoning the compact tuner market. Though that means that I'll definitely be buying used since I'm sure the SS/TC will be $2-3k more than the Supercharged was.
