Chevrolet is giving the Impala a stealthy makeover with the new, though already rumored, Midnight Edition for the big sedan. Covered almost entirely in black, the idea for the shadowy package is practically identical to both the Impala Blackout concept at the 2014 SEMA Show and the Silverado Midnight Edition pickup.

Buyers get an Impala that's ready to hide in the night with black pieces for the mirror covers, grille, badging, and rear spoiler. The sedan also gets a coat of Jet Black paint, and there's just a touch of contrast from the 19-inch aluminum wheels. The shadowy motif is carried inside, too, with a Jet Black interior and sport pedals to complete the look.

The Midnight Edition will start slinking into dealers this summer, and buyers will be able get the dark sedans with either the 2.5-liter four-cylinder with stop/start, 196 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque or the 3.6-liter V6 with 305 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque. The package will be available on the 1LT, 2LT and LTZ trim and will be priced from $995 to $1,595.

Chevrolet Impala's Dark Side: Midnight Edition Heads to Production

New trim package gives sedan sinister, dramatic style
2015-04-29

DETROIT – Chevrolet announced today it will sell a special edition blacked-out package for the Chevrolet Impala based on a concept shown at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Arriving in dealerships early this summer, the Impala Midnight Edition is outfitted to give the full-size sedan a more dramatic, sinister look.

"Since its introduction in 2014, Impala has become a benchmark for Chevrolet car design," said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet director of car marketing. "The Midnight Edition further strengthens the Impala's dramatic, head-turning styling."

The Midnight Edition includes:

Jet Black exterior, including body color mirrors
19-inch machine-faced aluminum wheels with black accents
Black grille and surround
Front and rear black Chevrolet bowtie
Jet Black interior
Sport pedals
Black rear spoiler.

Customers can purchase the Midnight Edition package on 1LT, 2LT and LTZ trim levels. Package prices range from $995 to $1,595 above the starting retail price.

The Impala Midnight Edition will be available with a choice of two powertrains – the standard 2.5L iVLC with stop/start technology and a 3.6L V-6 that is the most powerful naturally aspirated engine in the segment.

The Midnight Edition will be available for the 2016 model year, although a small number of 2015 Midnight Editions will be produced in the 2LT trim level with the standard 2.5L engine.

Since the Chevrolet Impala's redesign in 2014, it has been named the Cars.com Best Car of 2014 and one of Kelley Blue Book's 12 Best Family Cars for 2014.
