We first talked about the 2014 Impala back before the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show, but details on the car were pretty sparse. Now, Chevy has come along with plenty of new information about the car, as well as a price and an approximate release window.
The 2014 Impala is going to hit the market sometime in spring (Northern Hemisphere) of next year. Chevy has announced a starting price of US$27,535 for the base model, with the price going up from there depending on chosen options and trims.
The Impala includes a new entertainment system called MyLink, which includes a customizable 8-inch color display. It also comes with natural voice recognition (which is a first for a Chevy vehicle) along with new safety features such as rear cross traffic alert, side blind zone alert, and ten airbags.
Chevy is offering the new Impala with a choice of three different direct-injection engines. Buyers can grab a 3.6L V-6, a 2.5L four-cylinder, and a 2.4L four-cylinder with fuel-saving eAssist technology. The automaker estimates that the 2.4L four-cylinder will get 35 mpg (6.7 l/100km). Each engine choice is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The 3.6L V-6 hits the market first, with a base price tag of $30,760. The price for the 2.5L starts at the aforementioned $27,535 and pricing for the 2.4L model has not been announced as of this writing.
