2014 Chevrolet Impala Overview

What’s New for the 2014 Chevrolet Impala

For the 2014 model year, the Chevrolet Impala is fully redesigned.

2014 Chevrolet Impala Exterior

2014 is a new year for the Chevy Impala with an entirely new redesign creating a brand new silhouette for the sedan. Built on a similar platform as the Buick LaCrosse and Cadillac XTS, the Impala presents a look that has bigger curves and bolder lines. A confident stance calls attention to the sculpted, aggressive front leg, while the roof curves in an almost coupe-like style.

2014 Chevrolet Impala Performance

All three trim levels of the 2014 Impala are powered by a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 195 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, though the LT and LTZ models have an optional 3.6-liter V6 engine, which produces 305 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque. There is also a hybrid powertrain option that combines a 182-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a small 15-hp electric motor.

2014 Chevrolet Impala Efficiency

EPA-estimated fuel economy for the 2.5-liter engine is 25 mpg combined, while the 2.4-liter hybrid powertrain comes in at 25 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.

2014 Chevrolet Impala Interior

The entirely redesigned interior creates a modern and sophisticated cabin that is completely unexpected. Driver’s comfort is optimized with a dual-cockpit design that keeps the controls in easy reach and the gauges simple to read. There’s plenty of room for five passengers, with a longer wheelbase providing those in both the front and back enough legroom to stretch out. Cargo space is generous with the 60/40-split-folding rear seats, giving passengers the opportunity to create even more cargo room than the large trunk already provides.

2014 Chevrolet Impala Safety

Standard safety features for the 2014 Chevrolet Impala include antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front seat side-impact airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, and front knee airbags. GM’s OnStar telematics system also comes standard, featuring services such as automatic crash notification and remote door unlock. The LS and LT also come with optional rear parking sensors, while the LT has an optional rearview camera. The safety package offers forward collision alert, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alerts, and blind spot monitoring. The LTZ trim level comes standard with all the above items.
