2014 Chevrolet Impala
The outgoing 2012 Impala is the last of the W-body platform cars from General Motors. The 2014 Impala rides on the same Epsilon II platform as the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu, 2013 Cadillac XTS, and now-deceased Saab 9-5. Chevrolet uses a MacPherson-strut front suspension, four-link rear suspension, and hydraulic bushings to help the 201.3-inch-long and 73.0-inch-wide car have a smoother ride than the outgoing car. The 2014 model is only fractionally larger than the old Impala in every direction, and remains one of the largest in its class.

The new car carries over the top-of-the-line engine -- a 3.6-liter direct-injected V-6, up three horsepower to an estimated 303 hp. Two other direct-injected engines will be offered, both four-cylinders: a 2.5-liter I-4 estimated at 195 hp and 31 mpg on the highway, and a 2.4-liter I-4 with the eAssist mild hybrid system that is expected to make 182 hp and 35 mpg on the highway. If Chevy manages to hit the 35 mpg mark, it will easily make the Impala the most fuel efficient class; the Taurus and Charger currently tie for first place at 31 mpg. All Impalas will have power routed to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic.








Can't believe I like this. The old one looked like shit.

That's at least half of it, isn't it? The old one(s) have been so ugly and this is such an upgrade.

Frankly, it looks great. Lots of competitor cues here and there. But seems quite original. Look forward to seeing more of it. But can't see ever owning one. *Shrug*

this has been all over the papers here since we've been traumatized so much by the older impalas for so long

the i4 would be a freaking dog on this. v6 is the only way to go to haul such a big car

I like the front half. The rear half looks weak compared to it.

Someone will add 24" wheels and call it a Pimpala.
