DETROIT, 2012-11-22 – The all-new 2014 Impala, Chevrolet's flagship sedan, will go on sale this spring with a starting price of $27,535, including an $810 destination charge.
Impala was America's best-selling full-size sedan in 2011, with sales of more than 171,000, which made it one of the 10 best-selling cars in the United States
"We'll build on the success the Impala nameplate has generated over its history," said Chris Perry, vice president, Chevrolet marketing. "We've added sophisticated design features, more technology and safety equipment, while conserving Impala's current strengths like spaciousness and comfort."
Chevrolet's latest MyLink radio debuts in the 2014 Impala. The in-vehicle entertainment system adds an eight-inch color display screen that is customizable. The system also adopts natural voice recognition – a first for Chevy.
The 2014 Impala has several new features, including Adaptive Cruise Control and crash-avoidance technologies like Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert. Ten standard airbags are included as well – among the most in the segment.
Three direct-injection engine choices will be available to customers: a 3.6L V-6, a newly designed 2.5L four-cylinder and a 2.4L four-cylinder with fuel-saving eAssist technology that is estimated to deliver 35 mpg. All engines are matched to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The 2014 Impala will be offered in LS, LT and LTZ trim levels.
