Product Information


The Chevrolet Impala family sedan continues to combine fuel efficiency and fuel options with roominess and popular standard features. The standard L V-6 is EPA-rated at 29 mpg on the highway, fuel economy that matches or beats many much-smaller cars. Both the L and optional L engines offer E85 FlexFuel capability.

In addition to its highly competitive fuel economy, the Impala offers a long list of standard peace-of-mind amenities – including important safety features – in a package designed to provide pleasing design and functionality for today’s on-the-go families. Impala is offered in LS, LT and LTZ retail models.

New features for

For the model year, the L V-6 that is standard on LS and LT models is FlexFuel-capable, able to operate on gasoline, E85 bioethanol or a combination of the two.

E85 comprises 85 percent bioethanol, a renewable, domestically produced fuel that produces fewer greenhouse gases in the combustion process, and 15 percent gasoline. Chevrolet produces more FlexFuel models than any other automotive brand.

Also for , a new Luxury Package combines a number of popular comfort and convenience items, including a full year of XM Satellite Radio instead of the customary three-month trial, a Bose eight-speaker audio system, front bucket seats with leather appointments, front driver and passenger heated seats and a rear spoiler.

Impala design

Chevy Impala conveys sophistication and big-car roominess. On the exterior, large headlamps have a premium appearance with three independent lighting units. These details complement other high-quality attributes, such as tight tolerances of mm or less between body components and substantial “grab”-style door handles, to provide an overall feeling of solidity.

The Impala LS, LT and LTZ models have varied exterior trim cues that identify each model including unique , and inch wheel designs. For , body-color bodyside moldings are standard on all models except Police. A rear spoiler is standard on the LTZ model and included in the available LT models’ Luxury Package.

Inside, Impala is packed with thoughtful features for families, including clever flip-and-fold-flat rear seats (standard on LTZ, available on LT and in the Luxury Package). The forward-flip rear seat cushions reveal a storage tub under the seat that can contain spillage while transporting a variety of items. The tub also serves as a covered storage area beneath the seat with the cushions down, and offers convenient grocery bag hooks when the cushions are flipped forward. A generous pass-through from the trunk can be created by flipping the seat bottoms forward and the seat backs flat – an exclusive feature in the segment.

Completing the Impala’s interior is a host of useful standard and available comfort and convenience features, including:


  • Dual-zone climate control system with up to 12 degrees F temperature setting difference between the two front zones (for , the Impala LS model provides single-zone manual control)
  • Available factory-installed remote vehicle start system with up to feet (meters) of range and automatic climate pre-conditioning to warm or cool the vehicle prior to entry (Impala LS features available dealer-installed remote start)
  • Informative gauge clusters and an expanded driver information center – with more than 50 alerts, depending on the vehicle’s equipment
  • Eight-way, heated power driver seat standard on LTZ and leather-appointed seats; six-way power driver seat standard on LS, LT with cloth seats
  • New OnStar Gen hardware offers improved voice recognition
  • Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling is now standard on Impala 1LT and available on 1LS, 1FL and 2FL.

In retail models, there are two audio systems that feature simple-to-operate controls, and both include standard XM Satellite Radio. The base MP3/CD radio includes a six-speaker system, a two-line, character reconfigurable display and the capability to select between AM, FM and XM stations without having to reset the frequency. A premium Bose eight-speaker audio system is available, and included in the LT Luxury Package and LTZ models.

All radios include a standard auxiliary input jack for external devices such as an iPod.

Chassis and suspension

Impala’s chassis and suspension systems are designed to provide ride and handling that is quiet, smooth and refined. A robust front-end structure provides a firmer foundation to help reduce noise, vibration and harshness, while also enhancing steering and handling performance.

Impala’s fully boxed upper frame rail assemblies have a wider, deeper and structurally stronger upper front tie bar. Stronger ties between the upper and lower rails stiffen the front structure for improved ride and handling and a large, lower front-of-dash panel. To reduce resonant sound, it is constructed of Quiet Steel laminated steel, which consists of sound-deadening material bonded between sheets of steel.

All Impala models feature a quiet, efficient power rack-and-pinion steering system that optimizes internal flow of the hydraulic steering fluid within the pump and reservoirs.

The front suspension features a MacPherson strut coil-over-spring independent setup with gas-charged struts and a stabilizer bar. Tall jounce bumpers in the front suspension enhance stability and control. The rear suspension uses a trailing arm, tri-link setup with gas-charged struts and coil springs. A rear stabilizer bar is standard on all models.

Efficient, proven powertrains

Impala’s V-6 engines are as fuel-efficient as they are sophisticated. A L V-6 is standard in the Impala LS and LT, delivering horsepower ( kW)* and lb.-ft. ( Nm)* of torque – more standard power as a base engine than some key competitors’ top (or only) offering. The L V-6 also offers E85 FlexFuel capability.

When equipped with the L V-6, Impala achieves an EPA-estimated 29 mpg on the highway, comparable to many smaller midsize cars. This provides almost miles between fill-ups, an outstanding benefit for a roomy, six-person vehicle.

The L V-6 is standard in LTZ and available in LT models, and  also features E85 FlexFuel capability. EPA-rated at 27 mpg highway, this engine offers more power and usable torque within its operating range, with 90 percent of peak torque available from 1, to 5, rpm. It is rated at horsepower ( kW) and lb.-ft. of torque ( Nm).

Both Impala engines are matched with the Hydra-Matic 4T65 electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission, which is renowned for its smoothness and durability.

Safety and crash avoidance features

Impala has provided outstanding safety performance thanks to a collection of safety-enhancing features designed to help protect occupants before, during and after a crash. The previous model year Impala achieved the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s highest frontal crash test rating of five stars for driver and front-seat passenger.

Impala offers six standard air bags including side curtain air bags, which provide optimum head protection for outboard passengers. Impala’s other safety features include:

  • StabiliTrak electronic stability control system
  • Four-wheel-disc brake system featuring smooth, quiet operation, longer pad life, and more resistance to brake pulsation
  • Standard anti-lock brakes, which help provide improved steering control while braking. The system also includes Electronic Brake Force Distribution, which helps provide optimum braking regardless of load, traction or braking speed
  • Traction control system, which is standard on all models and works with the ABS system to help ensure stable acceleration on a variety of road conditions
  • Pretensioners, which are standard on the front safety belts, helping to minimize forward movement during a frontal collision. Load-limiting retractors cinch the belt more tightly.
  • Three-point safety belts, which are equipped in all standard seating positions
  • LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) child seat attachment system, whichis included in all second-row seating positions
  • Tire pressure monitoring system,  standard on all models
  • Standard remote keyless entry (RKE) system, which provides a second function for the red panic button. Drivers can use the button to locate their cars, without sounding the panic alarm.
  • Enhanced structure to absorb crash energy and “safety cage” construction to help protect occupants.

OnStar details

OnStar is standard on Impala and offers Gen. hardware for to improve voice recognition. OnStar is the leading provider of in-vehicle safety, security and information services in the United States and Canada.

All Impala models offer six months of complimentary OnStar Directions and Connections service with Turn-by-Turn Navigation for easier route guidance. Besides being easy to use (all directions are downloaded to the car by an advisor, without the need to stop), Turn-by-Turn can be cost-effective, since map updates are not needed.

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't % safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in and expanded into Europe in Around team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.
