2014 Chevrolet Impala
The fully redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Impala gets sharp new lines and body creases, with a vaguely Camaro-esque face, and a range of 18-, 19- and 20-inch wheels. Xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights come standard on LTZ models. The new Impala rides on about a 1-inch longer wheelbase, and overall length gains about an inch as well.
There will be three engine choices, including the carryover direct-injected 3.6-liter V6 that makes 303 horsepower, a 182-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder with the eAssist hybrid system, and a 2.5-liter four-cylinder generating 195 horses. All three engines hook up to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Chevrolet also gives the Impala a full interior redesign, with an 8-inch touchscreen display in the revised center stack, an available navigation system and the MyLink smartphone integration system. The new Impala also gets a comprehensive array of safety features, including 10 airbags, lane-departure warning, blind spot detection, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, a rearview camera and rear parking assist.
