This author is absolutely wrong.
Impala is the last of the great full size American value sedans and have an excellent opportunity to redefine itself as a great alternative to the funky overpriced SUV
The author mentions Fords Taurus as a like product; it is not. The fact is Ford killed the Taurus when it sought to bring it upmarket in price and content...Ford killed in one product cycle what was also a great value nameplate.
The author compares Impala to Malibu; incorrect, the Impala is twice the car and has a much larger ride and drive feel to it as well as substantially more space inside.
The Impala is a great American automobile at a time when folks want great Amsrican cars.
Value, size, fatigue free cruising and good MPG

I like general motors but the impala is do for a redesign but they might give it the ax with this new caprice squad car coming out and talks of it bringing a civilian version unless thats the new impala i like gm they are moving forward in quality and design. And the ford taurus is a good looking car from what it use to be a cheap buckect of a car these manufactuers are trying to go forward support them companies change if they dont change for the better they die so what if the car moves up in price fit and finish better go up to always support AMERICAN COMPANIES

The Taurus has not been killed.....it is Ford's full size car now that the Crown Vic is gone. The Impala isn't going anywhere, the 2014 model has already been leaked to the press.

Under the standards of the late fifties when the Impala was originally introduced, fair advertising would require that the Impala merely be renamed or rebadged the Biscayne or BelAir. Other than that, this line from GM has been a fantastic profitmaker especially for after sale parts and service.
