One for the full-size sedan fans out there! Chevy just announced that the Impala Midnight Edition is coming to showrooms this summer virtually identical to the SEMA 2014 show car. The upgrade is a full gloss black dip for many design details, the grille and surround, tail and rear spoiler. The 19-inch wheels are polished on the edges but gloss black on the insides – best of all worlds. Even the bow-ties front and rear go dark.
Unusually, the black-out style option is not set to be offered on other colors. We think this setup would look just as good with white or grey main paint plus the black grille, etc.
The cabin is jet black to match the mood. Just sport pedals inside, though.
The Midnight Edition for 2015 will be on 2LT four-cylinder cars, but rolls out into the full engine and trim lineup for 2016. Chevy estimates the package to run around $1000 — which makes this a tempting upgrade indeed.

Chevrolet Impala’s Dark Side: Midnight Edition
Heads to Production
New trim package gives sedan sinister, dramatic style
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
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.
