New York Auto Show – 2014 Chevrolet Impala
Last week at the New York Auto Show, Chevrolet has introduced the 2014 Impala which is the company’s flagship sedan. The car uses the extended Epsilon II platform and it will be sold with a choice of three engines. The entry-level version will be motivated by a 4-cylinder 2.4-liter engine with the eAssist option that produces 180 hp (182 PS / 134 kW) and 172 lb.-ft (233 Nm) of torque.
The second engine in the lineup is a 4-cylinder 2.5-liter that delivers 195 hp (197 PS / 145 kW) and 187 lb.-ft (358 Nm) of torque. The most powerful engine offered for the new Impala will be the V6 3.6-liter unit that can produce 303 hp (307 PS / 226 kW) and a maximum torque of 264 lb.-ft (358 Nm). All of the engines are linked to a 6-speed automatic transmission that sends the power to the front wheels.
As you can see, the design of the new Impala is more aggressive and attractive as opposed to the older model’s rather boring styling. The car now rides on 18-inch alloy wheels and comes with projector-beam headlamps with HID headlamps and LED DRLs. The cabin is dominated by the 8-inch touchscreen display which can be raised above the dashboard in order to provide a storage compartment.
The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Impala will go on sale in the first quarter of next year at a yet undisclosed price tag.
