2014 Chevrolet Impala

Chevrolet's current Impala feels a bit like an afterthought in GM's passenger-car lineup, but that's soon due to change; the new 2014 Chevrolet Impala unveiled at the New York Auto Show

The new sedan is officially the tenth generation of the Impala, although the nameplate has been applied to some very different products over many decades. What matters is that the new 2014 Impala is built on a completely new platform (now shared with the Buick LaCrosse, and related to the upcoming 2013 Cadillac XTS) and should have a far superior interior (one of the weaknesses of the current, very stark Impala), along top-notch refinement.

Design-wise, the Impala gets a front end that bears a strong likeness to that of the new 2013 Chevrolet Traverse, also revealed at New York, as well as the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu; particularly of interest is the more bulbous, extended rear wheelhouse, which transitions neatly into the rear styling.

Powertrains for the new Impala include a 182-horsepower, 2.4-liter four, which is expected to get 35 mpg on the highway, and a 303-hp, 3.6-liter V-6. Both get a six-speed automatic transmission, and all Impalas are front-wheel drive. MyLink now taps into a suite of connectivity possibilities through smartphones and media players, with some models getting an eight-inch LCD touch screen. Expect refinement to be superb as well, with new measures including active noise cancellation in four-cylinder models.

  1. Looks just like the Ford Taurus - Great and original on the Taurus but a bland copy with a Chevron logo that is Very tired and in serious need of an overhaul. You don't see any of the best selling Asian manufacturers making their logos big and over bearing like Chevrolet. It screams - look at me -I'm a Chevrolet instead of allowing the design, quality and experience speak for itself. GM is still not listening. They are only selling as many as they are because of the price point and not much else. Ford is light years ahead of GM still and when the Baby Boomers start buying more electric cars as they are now - GM has a very serious problem - no future with younger buyers. No one wants their Grand Dad's Chevrolet.

  2. LOL. Look at the front of any Toyota or Lexus. They have gigantic logos on the front of them. Don't let facts get in the way of an uninformed opinion.

  3. At first glance, it has clean lines and is showing some promise even if the interior is a tad overdone. Hopefully they will put some decent seats in it and not copies of the torture instruments installed in the current Impala. It certainly looks much better than the claustrophobic lump that is the new Taurus.
