For the 2013 model year, the Impala nearly carries over everything from the 2012 model year, save for a few minor changes and one new package. The minor changes include a 150-amp alternator and a new exterior color option: Crystal Red Tintcoat.
The biggest addition for the 2013 model year is the Luxury Edition Package, which is available on the LT trim level. This package includes: leather seats, heated front seats, six-way power passenger seat, Bose eight-speaker stereo system with a year of SiriusXM programming, auto-dimming rearview mirror Universal Home Remote, and heated outside mirrors. Every 2013 Impala comes standard with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that produces 300 horsepower and 262 foot-pounds of torque, and a six-speed automatic transmission. This setup nets the 2013 Impala 18 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
The Impala has plenty of competition in its class. Its first competitor is the 2013 Ford Taurus, which comes in at $26,600. The Taurus features a 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 290 horsepower, room for five people, and gets 32 mpg highway and 22 mpg city. The next competitor is the 2013 Dodge Charger. The Charger comes in at a base price of $25,795 and it features a 3.6-liter V-6 engine with 292 horsepower, seating for five, and 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. A final competitor for the Impala is the 2013 Toyota Avalon, which comes in at a base price of $30,990. The Avalon boasts a 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 268 horsepower, has leather seating for five people, and gets 21 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.
The competition in the Impala’s class is stiff, but Chevy has been there and done that. Even with its experience, Chevy needs to load up the Impala with the features that families need at a price they can afford.
The LS trim level acts as the base model for the 2013 Impala and it comes in at base MSRP of $25,860. On the outside, the LS trim levels includes: four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, dual exhaust, StabiliTrak, touring suspension, daytime running lamps, tinted windows, 16-inch aluminum wheels with P225/60R16 tires, and intermittent wipers. On the inside, it includes: manual air conditioning, wood-grain trim, six-speaker stereo system with AM/FM/CD/MP3/SiriusXM capabilities, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, power windows with driver side express-down and door locks, OnStar, keyless entry, six-way power driver seat, and leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls.
The LT trim level carries over many of the LS’s trimming, but also adds in a few extra items. On the outside, the LT trim level adds in: 17-inch rims with P225/55R17 tires and rear spoiler. On the inside, the LT trim level adds in: dual-zone climate control, outside temperature gauge, compass, remote starter, leather-wrapped shifter knob, and illuminated vanity mirrors in the driver and passenger visors. The LT trim level is also the first level that allows you to add in the optional Luxury Edition Package for an additional $2,085. The base MSRP for the 2013 Impala LT comes in at $27,385.
The LTZ trim level is the highest you can get on the 2013 Chevrolet Impala and it comes in at a base price of $30,400. The LTZ takes the base features on the LT trim level and adds in some extra touches of luxury and convenience. On the exterior, the LTZ trim level adds in: chrome door handles, fog lamps, heated mirrors, 18-inch machined-face aluminum wheels with P235/50R18, W-rated tires, and luxury-tuned suspension. Inside the Impala’s cabin, the LTZ trim adds in: premium Bose eight-speaker sound system, auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather seating with eight-way power driver seat and six-way power passenger seat, and Universal Home Remote.

Great highway mpg and nice styling, but slightly underpowered in its base setup
Competitive base price and a sporty look, but comes up weak in the engine and fuel economy in its base format
Beautiful new body and luxurious features, but very expensive and grossly underpowered
Classy styling, 1 mpg increase in city and highway and standard leather interior, but a big base price
