Chevrolet Impala Police Package
The Impala name was brought back to life in 2000 as the "Hi-Mid" program to replace the Lumina. It was built upon the W-body platform and manufactured at Oshawa Car Assembly in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada using a front-wheel-drive system. Depending on their preferences, customers could choose from two 3.8L V6 engines and a smaller 3.4L V6 engine. A new Impala SS with a supercharged V6 engine was released for the 2004 model year.
The Impala from 2000 to 2003 had two trim levels: the base and the LS. Standard features on the base model included cloth bench seats, steel wheels, a 180-horsepower 3.4L LA1 V6 engine, and a 3-gauge instrument cluster. Meanwhile, the LS variant was equipped with cloth bucket seats that could be upfitted with leather, as well as center console and floor shift, color-keyed "Impala" door scripts, anti-lock brakes, traction control system, keyless remote entry, integrated foglamps, aluminum wheels upgradeable to alloy wheels, four-gauge instrument cluster, and the 200-horsepower 3.8L L36 V6 engine. Other available options across all models include sunroof, OnStar system, Driver Information Center with built-in HomeLink system, heated power front seats, and 1990s SS-inspired 16-inch wheels. All variants also included power windows, door locks and mirrors. A rear spoiler was made available as an option for the base models and could be removed from the LS upon request. For the first time since 1959, Chevrolet produced an Impala that didn't have the model's famous triple taillight.
The 2004 to 2005 Impala SS was fitted with a 3.8L supercharged L67 V6 engine that delivered 240 horsepower. This engine, previously used in Pontiac Grand Prix GTP, Buick Regal GS, Buick Riviera, and H-body Pontiac Bonneville SSEI and Buick Park Avenue "Ultra", made the lightweight front-wheel-drive sedan fast and powerful, with its 0-60-mile-per-hour (0-97 km/h) time pushing 6.5 seconds, comparable to the previous model's performance of 6.5 seconds (or 7.1 seconds, on average). To honor Chevrolet's connection to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a limited edition (4,088 produced) Impala Indy SS was released in 2004, featuring black grille, gold Chevrolet bowtie emblem, Indy logos on the exterior and interior, 17-inch chrome wheels, gauge cluster package, and more. This gold bowtie would be carried over to all Impala models in 2005.
Impala 9C1 and 9C3
In 2000, Chevrolet introduced the Police Package, also known as 9C1, and the Undercover Police Package, or 9C3, the following year. Both models were specifically designed for law enforcement agencies, fire departments, and EMS agencies and quickly surpassed the predecessor, the Lumina 9C3. 9C1 had a stronger suspension and a 3.8L V6 engine, with a limited selection in terms of colors. It was also fitted with a SURV MODE switch which replaced the fog light switch found on the LS. This enabled the driver to switch off lights in the vehicle while undetected. The 9C3, which was comparably equipped to the 9C1, had more options available in terms of convenience features, as well as more colors for the paint and interior.
