The Chevrolet Impala was reimagined for 2014. No longer giving off the appearance of an airport rental mainstay, the new Impala injects style and luxury into a mainstream full-size sedan package. Its abundance of space makes it attractive for those looking at crossover SUVs but wanting a more luxurious image.
What's New for 2015
For 2015, the eAssist Impala has been dropped and its stop/start technology is now standard on all four-cylinder models. There's a new Bi-Fuel model to run on gas or CNG. And OnStar 4G LTE with a standard wifi hotspot is now included.
Choosing Your Chevrolet Impala
The Impala starts off with LS trim. It comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 195 horsepower and a stop/start feature for improved gas mileage. A six-speed automatic is the only transmission. Other standard equipment includes 10 air bags, a color driver information display, Bluetooth, satellite radio, 8-way power driver's seat, split-folding rear seat, 18-inch wheels, and OnStar with a wifi hotspot and the Directions and Connections package. The LS Convenience Package adds rear parking sensors, folding rear headrests and a cargo net.
LT models get an 8-inch touchscreen with Chevy's MyLink infotainment system, streaming Bluetooth, SD card reader, two additional USB ports, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, heated outside mirrors with turn signal indicators and puddle lamps, 18-inch alloy wheels and power lumbar control for the front passenger. 2LT models get the 3.6-liter V6 engine.
The LT-level cars also gain access to option groups:
- A Convenience Package adds a backup camera, rear parking sensors, remote start, universal remote and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
- The Advanced Safety Package adds forward collision alert, lane departure warning, cross path detection and blind spot warning.
- The Premium Seating package adds a power front passenger's seat and heated front seats.
- The Premium Audio and Sport Wheels pack adds 19-inch alloy wheels, 11-speaker Bose audio and a rear spoiler. Navigation is also available, as is a power sunroof.
LTZ trim cars add leather upholstery, keyless entry and start, a backup camera with rear parking sensors, remote start, an eight-way power front passenger's seat, heated front seats, LED running lights, chrome exterior trim, HID headlights, 19-inch alloy wheels, dual exhaust tips, forward collision warning, lane departure warning and blind spot monitoring. 2LTZ adds the 3.6-liter V6.
The Comfort and Convenience Package adds cooled front seats, heated steering wheel, power adjustable steering wheel, driver's memory for the seat, mirrors and steering wheel and auto-dimming mirrors. Navigation, Bose audio and a power sunroof are also available.
LT cars are well-equipped for the money, though most buyers will be better served by the 2LT's V6 engine.
