The Last Chevrolet Impala Left the Assembly Line

Chevy Impala - Memphis, TN

At approximately 8:30 AM on February 28th, 2020, the very last Chevrolet Impala was assembled at the Detroit-Hamtramck General Motors plant. Though Chevy announced the discontinuation of the legendary nameplate over a year ago, the loss of the iconic Impala is no less bittersweet.

After 60 years on the road, countless appearances in popular culture, and an impressive run as one of the most common police vehicles, the Chevrolet Impala is still widely beloved and critically acclaimed. In late 2019, it was revealed by Insurify.com that the Impala topped the list of most popular vehicles in seven states. Additionally, it was named the Lowest Cost to Own Full-Size Car by Kelley Blue Book as well as the Best Large Car for the Money by U.S. News just this year.

Though the Impala’s retirement might leave a sedan-shaped hole in your heart, rest easy knowing that Chevrolet has plenty of exciting projects in the works. General Motors is making a massive $2.2 billion renovation to the former Impala production facility to gear up to produce EVs. One of the upcoming all-electric vehicles expected to be built in the Detroit-Hamtramck plant is the newly-resurrected GMC Hummer.

As heartbroken as you may be, diehard Impala fans should remain hopeful; the Impala was axed from the Chevy lineup twice before and came back stronger than ever. In the meanwhile, visit Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville if you want to own one of the last Impalas – for now.

Chevrolet debuts a brand new look for the 2021 Colorado

2021 Colorado | Memphis, TN

Chevrolet recently pulled back the covers on the 2021 Colorado, debuting a whole new look for America’s favorite mid-size truck. The Colorado will officially make its first public appearance this fall at the 2019 Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic before heading to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

So what is new for the 2021 Chevy Colorado? For starters, it gets a new Sand Dune Metallic exterior color for Z71 and ZR2 trim levels. Chevy has also revised the bowtie emblem for the Colorado and added more differentiation among trims. For example, the WT, LT, and Z71 models benefit from new skid plates, lower fascias, and updated center bars. The bowties on the first two will be gold, while the Z71 bears a new black bowtie.

If you go with the ZR2 off-road Colorado model, you’ll get the Colorado’s new, exclusive front fascia. The ZR2 model will also now come standard with red tow hooks.

“We’ve sold 520,000 Colorado pickups in five years through a relentless, foot-on-the-gas approach to product and feature updates,” commented Bob Krapes, director of marketing, Chevrolet Trucks. “With its new-look front end and tailgate, Colorado will now have a more aggressive appearance to match its award-winning capability.”

We can’t wait to see you here at Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville when the 2021 Chevy Colorado hits lots later this year.
