General Motors has installed a modern, up-to-date powertrain into its mid-size Impala for 2012, but it's not really any more fuel-efficient than last year's model.

A new 300-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 and six-speed automatic transmission might give the Impala a more modern, refined character, but they do little or nothing for the benefit of gas mileage, surprisingly. EPA fuel economy ratings for actually go down one in the city--from 19 mpg to 18--but its highway rating rises by one, to 30 mpg. 

The Impala remains E85 (85 percent ethanol) compatible, although running on the fuel it gets just 13/22.

 

 

Conclusion

A more modern engine and transmission don't really improve the Impala's gas mileage.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
