A Direct quote from a dude on GMI:

I had the opportunity to get some details about the rumors of the next gen Impala. I was informed that the rwd plan IS the way they will go. I asked about the fwd stretched ep2, and he said look for the G8 platform. Then I asked about the 6 speeds in the 1500's. Sounds like some type of MCE will add them for 2009 (pretty expected). The next topic was the 6.2L in the Chevy's. It is very likely that this beast will appear soon, since it has entered the Chevrolet family with Corvette. It was also suggested that the 6.2 will power a performance version of Camaro (since the 6.0 will be replaced not really a shocker.
6 Speed Silverado? RWD Impala? Performance Camaro (aka Z28)??? In the Name of GMI, I must attach their most famous icon (multiplied by 6):

That was about a year and 3 days before today, right? It's amazing how in one year, plans can look exactly the opposite of how they were said to be. I guess this thread had some meaning... Never get your hopes up too high.

Remember you cannot outrun the motorola :D

Around the Metro Detroit area, there are a TON of Impala police cars. GM isn't losing much money in the public safety department.

I literally live across the street from a Police station, and there are fugly 2008 Magnum Police cars (No offense Jon, I liked the Magnum before the front end refresh..) like 10 out of 20 that are there are magnums. the rest are typical Vics. They hate Impalas. They actually expressed the fact that they hate them. I swear they said "I hate Impalas". I'm all wtf?

I've seen Mustangs, Chargers, Vipers, Hummers, Crown V's, and Porsche's. Anybody else think there is something missing here?

6spd Silverado already exists.
Gotta get the higher end trims, but if you get the L76 you get 6spd auto, same with the 6.2L in the crew cab.

I want a 6spd colorado, that'd make me smile.
