    Chevrolet’s Impala is the only Chevy car that you can buy with a V-6. The six cylinder Malibu is history. If you want a Chevy, you are stuck with a four. I suspect Impala is cannibalizing Malibu sales. For evidence, I cite the e-mails that all three of my past dealers keep sending me about the “August Malibu sale”. Curmudgeon that I am, I still wish I could by a small V-8.

    • The Chevy Camaro comes in 6 & 8 cylinder flavors. And the Chevy CorVette is 8 cylinder only

        Oops! I forgot about them as I never buy them. They are not really family sedans. Just bought a car in June. Drove the Equinox, Impala, Malibu, Cruz and Sonic as well as the Honda Crosstour and Dodge Journey. My wife picked the Sonic. She thinks it’s cute. I’m happy because it’s cheap. It’s the LTZ version and the seats are really comfortable! I bought a V-6 Impala last year. Not as smooth as the old Buick 3800 but better mileage and 50% more power.

        I wouldn’t call the Corvette’s V-8 small. I had in mind something more like the 5.4L engine in the (2006?) Impala SS. The salesman tells me a 6.2L rear wheel drive Impala is coming this Fall, but I’m just counting 2013 (I know Impala is branded 2014 but available in the 2013 model year). I’d love a Tesla, but for two Tesla’s I could pay off my mortgage.

        I still think many, if not most, of the 6 cylinder Malibu customers went to Impala.

    Looks like a marketing message from tesla sandwiched between actual good news from Chevy and Ford. Sales expected to double next year? I file that with housewives expecting to lose 10 pounds next year.
