2014 Chevrolet Impala LTZ
For the first time in a while, the Chevrolet Impala has been created which may stimulate someone other than the agency fleet purchases.
The 10th generation from one of the most familiar nameplates autodom, 2014 Impala is indeed a piece of sculpture, if a little rumpalicious. (. The 2014 Impala up on front-drive platform with the Cadillac XTS, a car that also has a long rear overhang) A Camaro-esque grille and headlamps have been used; on LTZ models, HID lighting upgrades to the unit with LED daytime lights running. Base LS models will come standard with 18-inch wheels, while 19- and 20-inchers will be available on LT and LTZ versions. The familiar running-impala logo takes up residence on the C-pillar.
The interior features Chevy’s dual-cockpit layout, as well as premium materials such as perforated leather and faux suede; ambient lighting and a French-stitched dashtop and IP cowl are among the options. The swanky atmosphere will be augmented by what should be a quieter cabin: Chevy says it fairly slathered the car with sound-deadening materials, and four-cylinder models have active noise cancellation via the audio system.
The instrument cluster gets a 4.2-inch driver-configurable color screen that can display various infotainment and vehicle data. Chevy’s latest iteration of MyLink is available, featuring an eight-inch touch-screen in the center stack that flips up to reveal a concealed storage bin.
The new Impala can be fitted with a host of driver-assistance tech, some of which are firsts for Chevrolet. The list includes full-speed-range adaptive cruise control, collision-mitigating automatic braking, lane-departure alert, blind-spot alert, forward collision alert, and rear cross-traffic alert. (We recently sampled GM’s versions of these technologies as fitted to a Cadillac SRX; the Impala’s nannies should function similarly, as they’re also destined for its XTS platform mate.)
The engine lineup has three naturally aspirated, direct-injected suspects: a carry-over 3.6-liter V-6—the only engine available in the outgoing car—a 2.5-liter four, and an eAssisted 2.4-liter four. In V-6 trim, the new car weighs roughly 150 pounds more than the previous one, so don’t expect six-pot mileage to move up from the previous 18 mpg city/30 highway. All three engines will hook to a six-speed automatic.
Pricing has yet to be announced; expect base pricing to stay near the current model’s $26,585 when the new Impala hits showroom floors in early 2013.
