2012 New York: Chevrolet debuts the new 2014 Impala, making the segment more challenging

Chevrolet has been hard at work to try and revitalize their products and some of their efforts are proving to work well. Chevrolet’s latest debut however is more than just a revitalization.

Not too long ago, Chevrolet pulled the Internet wraps off of the new Impala prior to the full debut at the 2012 New York International Auto Show and just by looking at it; the new Impala is an exponential improvement. Now, here are some pictures of the new Impala in the flesh and on the showroom floor.

The new Impala dons some new powertrains as well. The base model begins with the Impala eAssists, which employs the same setup as in the current Buick Regal eAssist: a 2.4L Ecotec four-banger that’s good for 182hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. The next option is a 2.5L Ecotec four-pot capable of 195hp and 187 lb-ft of torque. Lastly, those who are more power hungry would be relieved to hear that the new Impala will be offered with GM’s 3.6L V6—the same LFX V6 powering the Cadillac CTS and the SRX—good for 300hp and 264 lb-ft of torque. All are mated to a six-speed automatic.

We’re liking what we see.
