The Winding Road boys are betting this test vehicle โ€” mildly disguised in typical checkerboard fashion โ€” is the next Chevrolet Impala. The evidence is damning: A facial tie-in with Chevrolet's GMT-900 SUVs, the outline of the Chevy bowtie spotted by one of the spies, and an overall evolutionary resemblance to the current Impala. Spies also say the model's a front-driver, which is bad news to anyone expecting a true Chrysler 300 beater from GM. Still, questions linger: Is it a Buick? Is it a foreign-market Chevy? Why is it clad in Hankook Optima tires? So many questions, far too few answers. Read on.
