The 2025 Chevy Impala is a design study that aims to save America’s large sedan. With the rise of crossovers, SUVs, and pickups, traditional sedans have become less popular. However, this study proposes re-imagining the well-known American nameplate, the Chevrolet Impala, with muscular-retro styling and rear-wheel-drive substance. The study pays homage to the 1964 Impala 4-door hardtop with its frameless windows and clean body lines while borrowing elements from the more curvy 1967 model. Chevrolet’s street-inspired design language is utilized, with elements from the Camaro and Corvette infused into the metalwork.

The new Impala could come with a proven 3.6-liter V6 engine with 320 horses and 280 pound-feet of torque, followed by a thumping 6.2-liter LT2 V8 plucked from the C8 Corvette. Using electrification for the Impala could save the large sedan too. A high-performance, dual-motor setup, 100kWh battery pack, and a Model S rivaling 380 miles (over 610 km) range is the ticket for market rejuvenation. Power would be fed to the rear wheels via an 8-speed Tremec dual-clutch gearbox.
The study proposes a shark-nosed, egg-crate grille, a muscular hood, and squared-off fenders for frontal styling. Blacked-out A and C-pillars exude a floating roof effect, while the side sculpting features aggressive rear haunches and lower door scallops for visual dynamism. The Impala nameplate could move beyond rental agency fodder into something much more aspirational and not the senior shadow of its former self. Overall, the 2025 Chevy Impala design study offers a glimpse into a possible future for the iconic American sedan.
