Like the original 1958 edition, the 2008 Impala 50 th Anniversary Edition is distinguished with unique trim and amenities, giving customers a special product infused with the fun-to-drive spirit that has characterized the Impala for half a century.

"Chevrolet is thrilled to mark 50 years of the Impala," said Ed Peper, Chevrolet general manager. "Few brands can claim such a heritage and throughout the decades, Impala has always stood for the value, performance and style that has made Chevrolet America's car."

The Impala 50 th Anniversary Edition goes on sale in spring 2008. It is based on the popular and well-equipped Impala LT, with the following unique and standard features:
  • FE3 Sport Suspension (replaces the FE1 Touring Suspension)
  • Four-wheel ABS
  • Eighteen-inch alloy wheels (replaces 16-inch wheels)
  • Rear spoiler
  • "50 th Anniversary" Impala badge on the C-pillar
  • Two-tone, leather-trimmed seats and "50 th" logo embroidered on the front headrests
  • Eight-way power-adjustable driver seat (replaces six-way adjustability)
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel with accent-color thread (includes audio controls)
  • Ebony carpet
  • Ebony floor mats with accent threading
  • "50 th" Anniversary emblem on the sill plates
  • Two premium exterior colors: Black Granite Metallic or Red Jewel Tintcoat
The 50 th Anniversary Impala also includes a one-year upgrade to the OnStar Directions and Connections package, including Turn-by-Turn Navigation.

Also standard is the Impala's convenient flip-and-fold rear seats, the cushions of which flip forward to reveal a storage tub that serves as a covered storage area beneath the seat and offers convenient grocery bag hooks. A generous pass-through from the trunk can be created by flipping the seat bottoms forward and the seat backs flat - an exclusive feature in the midsize segment.

The 50 th Anniversary Impala is powered by a refined and efficient 3.5L V-6, rated at 211 horsepower (157 kW)* and 214 lb.-ft. (290 Nm)* of torque. Vehicles with federal emissions systems in the United States are equipped with the 3.5L engine, which is compatible with E85 ethanol fuel, allowing the vehicle to run on any combination of gasoline and/or E85.

When using gasoline only, the 3.5L-equipped Impala is EPA-rated at 29 mpg on the highway.
