Model value:The 2008 Chevy Impala fends of its competition by offering a big, solid car that delivers smooth and safe performance at a low price.
Model overview:The Impala, Chevy's top-seller for the last few years, is usually classed as a mid-size sedan, but it is one of the bigger mid-sizes around. As such, it is no surprise that the Impala boasts roomy seating and almost 19 cubic feet of trunk space.The 2008 Impala comes in four trim levels: LS, LT, LTZ, and SS. The LS and LT have a 3.5L flex-fuel-capable V6, the LTZ comes with a larger 3.9L V6 (with Active Fuel Management), and the SS has a 303-horsepower 5.3L V8. The V6 engines have variable valve timing, while the V8 is mated to a heavy-duty Hydra-Matic four-speed automatic transmission plus performance-tuned four-wheel independent suspension. Beyond that, most of the differences between trims are in small tweaks, such as fog lights, aluminum wheels (both standard with the 3.9L and 5.3L engines) or heated mirrors (standard on the LTZ).As with most mid-size sedans, air bags, power windows, power locks, and air conditioning are standard across the line. In addition, Chevy includes one year of OnStar's Safe and Sound plan. ABS, StabiliTrak, and a tire pressure monitor system round out the standard safety features.
Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.
CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert
Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.
CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.
Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.
Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles
Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.
Second Hand — Not Second Best
Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.
But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.
CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories
CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.
Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.
We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.
Chevrolet is still building a classic American family sedan in the Impala. The current Impala was introduced in 2005 as a heavily refreshed version of the car that launched in 2000. The front-drive Impala offers a comfortable and spacious interior, a luggage-swallowing trunk, and a quiet, unremarkable over-the-road demeanor. Although the redesign for 2005 greatly improved the interior, the Impala’s cabin materials still pale next to those of the Honda Accord, Toyota Avalon, and Hyundai Azera. Three engines are offered in the Impala: a 3.5-liter V-6 with 211 horsepower, a 3.9-liter V-6 with 233 horsepower, and a 5.3-liter V-8 with 303 horsepower. The 3.5-liter offers optional E85 (85-percent ethanol, 15-percent gasoline) capability; the other engines come standard with E85 capability. A four-speed automatic is standard on all Impalas.
For 2008, Chevy offers five Impala trim levels (LS, 1LT, 2LT, LTZ, and SS). LS Impalas offer excellent value, the LTs and the LTZ offer a bit more luxury and power, and the SS offers so much horsepower that the front-wheel-drive layout struggles to put it all to the ground. Full-throttle runs in the SS aren’t boring, but they’re hardly rewarding, either. Major competitors to the Impala include the Buick LaCrosse, Ford Taurus, Mercury Sable, Hyundai Azera, Kia Amanti, Pontiac G8, and Toyota Avalon. Some of the Impala’s competition (the Ford Taurus, the Mercury Sable, the Chrysler 300) offer all-wheel drive.
The Impala is a classic American sedan that offers tons of interior space and good value but also anonymous styling and a forgettable driving experience in all but the SS version. For better or worse, it’s inoffensive in nearly every way.

What’s New for 2008
For 2008, XM satellite radio is standard on all Impalas. SS models offer chrome 18-inch aluminum wheels, LTZ models get machined 18-inch aluminum wheels, and the 2LT trim level gets a new 17-inch aluminum wheel design. LTZ models get the firmer FE3 suspension as standard equipment. Three new colors are offered for ’08: Gold Mist Metallic, Mocha Bronze Metallic, and Slate Metallic. There's also a 50th-anniversary model that is essentially an LT with larger wheels, anti-lock brakes, performance suspension tuning, a few luxury touches, and anniversary badging.
At the bottom end of the Impala lineup is the LS trim level ($22,400), which comes standard with the 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 211 horsepower; a four-speed automatic transmission; a wood-grain-trimmed interior; a six-speaker AM/FM/satellite radio stereo system with a CD player, auxiliary input, and MP3 capability; air conditioning with automatic climate control; cruise control; OnStar emergency and convenience services; 16-inch steel wheels with wheel covers; power windows, doors, and locks; and remote keyless entry.
The next step up are the LTs. The 1LT starts at $23,100. In addition to the standard equipment that comes on the LS model, 1LTs come with dual-zone climate control with air conditioning, a driver information center, 16-inch aluminum wheels, a remote starter, and floor mats. The 50th Anniversary Impala (pricing not available as of this writing) takes the 1LT and adds performance tuning for the suspension, traction control, anti-lock brakes, 18-inch machined aluminum wheels, a rear spoiler, power front seats, remote start, and 50th Anniversary badges.
Moving up, the 2LT ($25,735) has everything from the 1LT and adds anti-lock brakes with traction control, a 233-hp, 3.9-liter V-6 engine, a stainless-steel dual-exhaust system, a folding rear seat, a rear spoiler, stability control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, driver- and passenger illuminated vanity mirrors, and 17-inch aluminum wheels.

The price-leading Impala LS offers ABS with traction control ($600), a block heater ($75), floor mats ($100), remote-vehicle-start preparation ($30), a split front bench ($195), and body-side molding ($100).

“Chevrolet is thrilled to mark 50 years of the Impala,” said Ed Peper, Chevrolet general manager. “Few brands can claim such a heritage and throughout the decades, Impala has always stood for the value, performance and style that has made Chevrolet America’s car.”
The Impala 50 th Anniversary Edition goes on sale in spring 2008. It is based on the popular and well-equipped Impala LT, with the following unique and standard features:
- FE3 Sport Suspension (replaces the FE1 Touring Suspension)
- Four-wheel ABS
- Eighteen-inch alloy wheels (replaces 16-inch wheels)
- Rear spoiler
- “50 th Anniversary” Impala badge on the C-pillar
- Two-tone, leather-trimmed seats and “50 th” logo embroidered on the front headrests
- Eight-way power-adjustable driver seat (replaces six-way adjustability)
- Leather-wrapped steering wheel with accent-color thread (includes audio controls)
- Ebony carpet
- Ebony floor mats with accent threading
- “50 th” Anniversary emblem on the sill plates
- Two premium exterior colors: Black Granite Metallic or Red Jewel Tintcoat
The 50 th Anniversary Impala also includes a one-year upgrade to the OnStar Directions and Connections package, including Turn-by-Turn Navigation.
Also standard is the Impala’s convenient flip-and-fold rear seats, the cushions of which flip forward to reveal a storage tub that serves as a covered storage area beneath the seat and offers convenient grocery bag hooks. A generous pass-through from the trunk can be created by flipping the seat bottoms forward and the seat backs flat – an exclusive feature in the midsize segment.
The 50 th Anniversary Impala is powered by a refined and efficient 3.5L V-6, rated at 211 horsepower (157 kW)* and 214 lb.-ft. (290 Nm)* of torque. Vehicles with federal emissions systems in the United States are equipped with the 3.5L engine, which is compatible with E85 ethanol fuel, allowing the vehicle to run on any combination of gasoline and/or E85.
When using gasoline only, the 3.5L-equipped Impala is EPA-rated at 29 mpg on the highway.
Introduced in 1958 as a premium package for the full-size Bel Air, the Impala was an immediate sales success, selling approximately 60,000 units. It was designated a stand-alone model in 1959 and offered top-of-the-line amenities and performance, including a 335-horsepower (250 kW), 348-cubic-inch (5.7L) V-8 engine. Sales increased to approximately 175,000.
As Chevrolet’s full-size platform evolved throughout the 1960s, so did the Impala. The model range included coupes, sedans and convertibles – with early-year models distinguished by their six-taillamp rear styling. Other full-size Chevy models had only four taillamp lenses.
In 1961, the performance-oriented Impala SS was introduced. Today, it is considered by many to be one of the first true muscle cars, with power coming from a variety of standard and optional engines, including a 409-inch V-8 that produced one horsepower per cubic inch. Only 142 409-powered SS models were built that inaugural year, but 409-powered Impalas would go on to be scourge of drag strips across the country and the subject of a popular song.
For 1965, the full-size platform was redesigned and the Impala was all-new. Customers responded to the sleek, new design with enthusiasm. More than 1 million Impalas were sold that model year, setting a sales record that has since gone unmatched.
New-generation Impalas were introduced in 1971 and 1977, with the ’77 models featuring “downsized” styling that still offered full-size accommodation, but with more compact and efficient exterior dimensions. The re-sized Impalas carried the brand into the mid-1980s, when the name was changed to Caprice.
The Impala returned in 1994 as the high-performance Impala SS – a sinister-looking muscle car built with the heavy-duty powertrain and suspension components of the Caprice police car package. It was a sellout success for three consecutive model years, bowing out only with the end of production of GM’s full-size rear-drive platform.
After a three-year hiatus, the Impala name returned again for 2000 on Chevy’s full-size, front-drive architecture. That seventh-generation Impala proved popular, but greater success came with the refined eighth-generation model, which was introduced for 2006.
Sales jumped nearly 18 percent in 2006, reaching nearly 290,000 units. Sales increased again in 2007, up more than 11 percent through November and challenging the sales rate of key competitors such as the Honda Accord.

His penis was very large and hard, probably 20 centimeters long. Olga looked very excited when she saw him and expressed her greeting by kissing the head of his penis. You could clearly read on Misha's face - Olga knows her business. She grabbed the entire cock and began kissing and sucking it.
Misha's face was so frozen that I could swear that he was ready to shoot Olga in the mouth.2008 Chevrolet Impala LT 3.5 V6 Start Up and Full Tour
Two hundred and twenty years later. She agreed to meet with me. She asked why I want to see her, and I answered something unintelligible. I mean, I explained that I wanted to consult with her on one important issue, but this explanation even looked ridiculous to.
