The Chevrolet Impala Blackout Concept grabbed plenty of attention when it was unveiled at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. We’d heard whispers the Impala Blackout Concept may enter production, bringing its sleek-muted black tones with it, and it appears those whispers were truth.
Chevrolet has decided to keep us in the dark no longer, and announced the 2016 Impala Midnight Edition will be heading to production and it’s bringing all the updates we fell in love with.
“Since its introduction in 2014, Impala has become a benchmark for Chevrolet car design,” said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet director of car marketing. “The Midnight Edition further strengthens the Impala’s dramatic, head-turning styling.”
The 2016 Impala Midnight edition will arrive with gussied up bits to ensure it isn’t mistaken for any other road-going Impala. Those upgrades include a Jet Black exterior paint color, 19-inch machine-faced aluminum wheels with black accents, rear spoiler and black bowties are applied to the front and rear of the car.
Inside, things stay just as dark. A Jet Black interior has been selected to mimic the presence of the 2016 Impala Midnight Edition’s exterior, and aluminum sport pedals and a splash of sport to the already handsome Impala cockpit.
If you’re ready to plunk down a chance of change on the 2016 Impala Midnight Edition, it won’t break the bank either. The Midnight Edition may be applied to the 1LT, 2LT and LTZ trim levels of the Impala. Pricing for the Midnight Edition package start at $995, to $1,595 for the sleek new looks.
The 2016 Impala Midnight Edition stick with the tried and true 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, with the 3.6-liter V6 as an option. Chevrolet says a small number of Midnight Edition Impalas will be produced for the 2015 model year, but they will be outfitted with the four-banger only.
The 2016 Chevrolet Impala Midnight Edition will reach dealerships early this summer.
