We've talked a few times about the 2014 Chevrolet Impala. Chevrolet and General Motors have high hopes for the 2014 Impala to become the passenger halo car that Chevrolet is in desperate need of. Previous versions of the Impala have not been as popular as Chevrolet desired.
Production for the 2014 Impala has begun at the GM Oshawa, Canada assembly plant. Production commenced on April 1 and the vehicles will begin landing at dealerships around North America in early April. The 2014 Impala starts at $27,535 including destination charges.
The vehicle will have three different engines available including a 2.4-liter mild-hybrid Ecotec engine, 2.5-liter four-cylinder Ecotec LCV, and a 3.6-liter V6 engine. Some versions of the car will feature the new Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system that has the PIN secured cubby for storing your gear. Interestingly, the previous version of the Impala will remain in production.
Chevrolet GM will continue producing the previous model Impala for fleet sales. I'd wager that comes down to price, with the 2014 Impala starting at over $27,000 it's not exactly an inexpensive vehicle for large fleets operate. The 2014 Chevrolet Impala is based on the automakers extended Epsillon II vehicle architecture. Starting in May the new Impala will also be produced at the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant.
