About Chevrolet Impala

Family-friendly and fuel-efficient, the 2018 Chevrolet Impala is a comfortable and spacious full-size 4-door. It’s Chevy’s largest sedan, offers class-leading trunk space and has a low starting price around $29,000. Three trim levels are offered, LS, LT and the luxurious Premier, which gets a standard 3.6-liter V6 packing 305 horsepower. A 2.5-liter 4-cylinder is standard in the LS and LT, but the V6 is optional. With 197 horsepower the 4-cylinder is powerful enough for most buyers and features start/stop, which shuts off the engine at red lights to save fuel. All Impalas are front-wheel drive. Standard luxuries include onboard Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, keyless entry and 18-inch wheels. The new Impala competes with the Toyota Avalon, Nissan Maxima, Kia Cadenza, Hyundai Azera and Ford Taurus.

"The 2014 through 2017 Chevy Impala is a great car. Why would you pay the high price for an Audi, Mercedes, or BMW when you can have everything which those brands have and more for a much cheaper price. The European brands have gained a ridiculous reputation from their marketing to boost positive thoughts when it comes to their brands. I came very close to purchasing a German sedan before I saw Chevy. I never even considered Chevy, but I was very surprised when I noticed how much quality and attention to detail the Chevy Impala is. Yes the previous models are nothing to rave about (simple, plain design) but the 2014 to 2017 model is much higher above its class. It would sure be considered a muscle car if it were #1 rear wheel drive, #2 came with the optional 3.6 L V6. The Impala is an American tradition for a vehicle and has been carrying the name since 1950s. I have not had a single problem with the car. The seats are big and comfy yet squeeze you in when taking corners. and the front wheel drive pulls you hard when you want to get up and go. Very quite dual pane windows with insulation and sound dampening throughout the entire car. LOVE my Impala and will drive it until the wheels fall off."

"Was in the market to replace a Honda CR-v and looking at every option available. Drove the 2017 Chevy Impala Premier with Adaptive Cruise Package once and had to take it home with me. This car rides better than any other car I have ever driven... I am 6 4 and this car fits me with room to spare while still providing ample leg room for two kids on the back seat. Engine is peppy and this car has no issue getting out of its own way. Gas mileage has been a pleasant surprise given 305HP. Averaging 28.1 on highway trips while using Adaptive Cruise feature. If you can find one of these, as I did, while they are running the 20% off MSRP promotion, grab it. You wont be disappointed. Only wish that it was offered in AWD for my Cleveland winters as it is in the Cadillac on same platform."

"I purchased a 2014 Impala LT in November 2013. Great ride, plenty of power (V6), excellent fuel economy (28-31). Still get compliments every week on this car. Huge trunk, fits four sets of golf clubs, and easily 5 adults. No maintenance problems whatsoever. One minor factory fix on a tail like leak. This car is super quiet , comfortable. Still have factory tires at 43K. Will change them soon as they are starting to get a little noisy. Plenty of leg room in back for passengers. Handling is great in wind, but marginal in snow."
