A 2014 Champagne Silver Impala—gone but not forgotten

If you’ve been dreaming of buying a Champagne Silver Metallic 2016 Chevy Impala, you may want to sit down for this. We’ve got some real bad news for you, pal…

That’s one of the six exterior colors that the Impala is ditching for the 2016 model year. It’s also saying goodbye to Autumn Bronze Metallic, Red Rock Metallic, Crystal Red Tintocoat, Ashen Gray Metallic, and Silver Topaz Metallic.

In exchange, Chevy is adding five new exterior color options: Siren Red Tintcoat, Citron Green Metallic, Heather Gray Metallic, Mosaic Black Metallic, and Green Envy Metallic.

On the inside, the 2016 Chevy Impala is also losing its Jet Black/Brownstone interior color combination, and the full-size sedan’s Leather Package apparently no longer utilizes sueded microfiber.
