General Motors (GM) bets it can recharge the batteries of its nearly forgotten Impala model. The 2014 variety will be the first remake in 7 years with both tech and fashion upgrades scheduled. The bigger issue: The automaker has set an aggressive plan to refresh its portfolio with 70% of all its vehicles to be refreshed or new. A key focus will be the Chevrolet brand due its slipping market share.

    Reuters reported yesterday that "insiders close to government sources stated that General Motors is thinking of dropping the Impala line in favor of a new green and sustainable model. In the works is the new self-powered 'Manatee,' a large vehicle capable of carrying one passenger and getting 900 miles to the gallon."


    The only catch: riding the Manatee will get you arrested in Florida.

    Although forgotten, through 10 months of 2012, Chevrolet has sold more Impalas than all BMW models combined.

    Two simple things Chevrolet could do to improve it's image and thereby increase sales; get rid of that ugly clunky tacky yellow logo (replace it with the beautiful old "Cheverotlet" logo in flowing script from the 50's?) and get someone who understands car colors. They have the most awful exterior colors.
