4 April 2012

The 2014 Chevrolet Impala has been revealed at today’s New York motor show. The all-new model is the tenth generation of the model, which was introduced in 1958.

The styling is a huge leap forward over the current model, and is an effort to push the model upmarket.

The saloon, which is based on the Vauxhall Insignia’s Epsilon II platform, has a sweeping profile and high-spec models are fitted with HID headlights with daytime running lamps. The car carries the leaping impala emblem on the C-pillars which also feature a flourish similar to BMW’s hofmeister kink.

Interior design and materials have been improved. It features Chevrolet’s dual-cockpit interior. The instrument panel integrates a cluster with a standard-fit 4.2-inch colour screen. Chevrolet’s MyLink infortainment system allows easy connectivity with mobile devices.

Chevrolet says the Impala has a more rigid bodyshell, bringing improvements in NVH, ride and handling. It claims the Impala is the company’s quietest full-size saloon ever.

Three engines are offered: a 2.4-litre Ecotec engine producing 182bhp, a 195bhp 2.5 and a 3.6-litre V6 which will produce an estimated 303bhp. All engines are matched to a six-speed automatic.

A lot riding on this and it could well be the whole principal of the future. A few questions I would like answered 1) the ecotech engine is being built where? 2) The platform is being imported? In any case this car could lead the American people into being more economical and less wasteful of resources than in the past. If it drives well then it deserves to be a success and hopefully it will follow the heritage of the brand and continue to lead many ovals
