What’s New for the 2017 Chevrolet Impala?
General Motors has changed the naming of the trims for the new Chevy Impala. The sedan is still offered in three unique models, but the top-level Impala will now be referred to as the Impala Premier, instead of the Impala LTZ. Other than that naming change, Chevy has eliminated the Jet Black and Citron Green Metallic exterior color options and replaced them with Pepperdust Metallic and Blue Metallic.
