Fins, Fleets, and Everything in Between: A Visual History of the Chevrolet Impala

Although production of the Impala has stopped and restarted a couple of times, it remains one of Chevrolet’s most revered nameplates—and America’s annual sales leader at various points. But the highly successful cars of the 1950s and ’60s were followed by a string of uninspired models that largely turned “Impala” into a synonym for “rental.” The latest model—which was all-new for 2014—changed that, with a fresh, sculpted design; modern technology; and direct-injected powertrains that include a hybridized four-cylinder. It's been a long road for the Impala, so let's take a brief look at the milestones along the way.1956 Chevrolet Impala Motorama show car1958 Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe1958 Chevrolet Bel Air Impala Convertible1959 Chevrolet Impala1959 Chevrolet Impala sport sedan1963 Chevrolet Impala1964 Chevrolet Impala convertible1965 Chevrolet Impala1966 Chevrolet Impala SS convertible1971 Chevrolet Impala1972 Chevrolet Impala convertible coupe1977 Chevrolet Impala1980 Chevrolet Impala1994 Chevrolet Impala SS1996 Chevrolet Impala SS2000 Chevrolet Impala LS2004 Chevrolet Impala Indy SS2004 2009 Chevrolet Impala SS2011 Chevrolet Impala LTZ2014 Chevrolet Impala2015 Chevrolet Impala LT
