2014 Chevrolet Impala Debuts

Chevrolet has pulled the wraps off its new 2014 Impala, which is a completely refreshed version of Chevrolet's long-running full-sized sedan. The vehicle will go on sale in early 2013 and will be the 10th generation of the Impala. Highlights of the new car include a range of three different direct injection engines.

The engines include a 3.6-liter V6, a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder, and a new 2.4-liter four-cylinder with eAssist. The car has completely new exterior design and uses standard 18-inch wheels with projector-beam headlamps. LTZ models get HID headlamps and LED daytime running lights. Inside the car is an all-new interior with an integrated center stack and eight-inch touchscreen display with available MyLink technology.

MyLink is Chevrolets Bluetooth audio streaming technology that also allows for navigation and more controlled by the large touchscreen display. The car also has a full range of safety technology with full speed range adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking, forward collision alert, Lane departure warnings, side blind zone alerts, a rear camera, and more. The full speed range adaptive cruise control is interesting because in traffic the car will automatically brake to a complete stop and then accelerate as traffic moves. Other companies offering adaptive cruise control only work to a certain speed and then leave braking up to the driver. MSRP is unknown at this time.
