|We won’t blame you if, upon seeing a ’96 Chevy Impala SS in your rear view mirror in Forza 4, your first instinct is to slow down. The Impala, after all, has its roots as a go-to vehicle for police forces around the U.S. The Impala was resurrected by Chevy in 1994, after a nine-year hiatus, and brought to market with a comfortable interior worthy of a sedan and durability worthy of stalwart cop cars like the Caprice. The 5.7 liter LT1 V8 engine churns out a healthy 260 hp — a good thing, considering the Impala’s sheer size. Small details like the center-console shifter and analog gauges were new for the ’96 Impala, which turned out to be the final in the line until the Impala [sic] name was again resurrected in 2000.|

The 1994 to 1996 Impala SS (Super Sport) reintroduced an SS performance model of the Impala after a 25 year hiatus, as well as the Impala name itself after its discontinuation in 1985. The 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS 409 is a predecessor model also featured in the Forza series.
It was offered with a LT1 eight-cylinder engine from the Chevrolet Corvette C4 and was based on the final B-body Chevrolet Caprice, making it the last rear-wheel drive Impala model. Following the car's end of production, the Impala name was resurrected again for the 2000 model year for various generations of front-wheel drive sedans.
