It does look pretty good, imo. And it's got some good numbers to back it up.

Not quite. The new Impala is (still) FWD,based on GM's modified Epsilon II platform. The SS Sedan is based on the Holden VF Commodore,using the Zeta platform which is shared with the Camaro.

It was pacing the Daytona 500 and didn't look too bad.
