2018 Chevrolet Impala Specs Reviews
2018 Chevrolet Impala can carry over with several changes including an updated infotainment system with Android Auto integration. This generation’s impala is new for the 2014 model year, so maybe the car could be refreshed for the 2018 or 2019 model – we’ll update this space as soon as we have more info. With the redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Traverse using a new nine speed automatic, do not be surprised to see the transmissions that appear on the Impala 2018 line as well.
2018 Chevrolet Impala Specs Release Date
2018 Chevrolet Impala Styling
Impala has managed to look good for a while, even when others manage to catch up – or go beyond it.
The redesign of the Cheval Impala in 2014 is largely successful. A dirty and shabby body is given a viking (right) cemetery, and what remains of a wood fire is a more carved and slimmer body with all the right moves.
We love the exterior, but assume the interior could use some help. Given his position in other GM families, we say it’s still good – but not great – and worth 6 out of 10 on our rating scale.
About the interior: too busy. With our eyes, the tops of the dash and falling in many places and we are stuck wondering what we should see. This is exacerbated by the use of several different Chevy materials that cut too much. The overall idea of a Chevy is a winner, but only lost in execution – we prefer less drama
Outside, the sedan is good for the offense. This is a collection of handsome panels that combine crisp lines with nice shapes. In our eyes, the grille managed to incorporate some of Honda’s better moves, especially with its clean lines.
Around the back, Chevy Impala stamps on top of a throttle with a complex shape that helps carve a racier roofline, but a clean corner junction pulls everything into a very sharp fold. This is one of GM’s best efforts, even if it combines different brand identities into a single Chevy.
2018 Chevrolet Impala Performance
Impala’s best quality is its journey, and it’s not a bad thing.
The amount will not be impressive, but its appearance is getting closer.
The 2018 Chevrolet Impala has largely been abandoned from the latest powertrain improvements to the sedan, which supports a simple approach that attracts wider consumer attention.
His journey yielded one point above the average, and that’s all we can say. Impala yielded 6 out of 10 on our performance.
Like last year, Chevy Impala is equipped with 6 speed automatic and choice between 2.5 liter inline-4 or 3.6 liter V-6.
Speed 6 is not a smooth customer, but managed to keep the Impala stay in a long cruise ship. Because the torque converter is installed to lock more often on behalf of fuel economy, the anxious legs can trigger what feels like a half shift when the converter is opened. Still ready to react quickly to the right amount of pedals.
The Base Chevy Impala LS model and mid-range LT models are installed as standard with inline-4-liter that produces 196 horsepower. In our drive, inline-4 is more suitable for medium range than off-the-line acceleration, which we think is the point.
Active noise cancellation sounds some loud noises made by inline-out rasp-4, but not as fast as the badge implies.
The Chevy Impala Premier model packs much more under the hood with a standard 3.6 liter V-6 that makes 305 hp more satisfying, and a 0-60 mph time of 6.8 seconds. In addition to the gaping exhaust, V-6 also gives a more satisfying impression to be provided by premium sedan. It has a large flat-torque curve with responsiveness-without anxiety-throttle response. The larger V-6 is available as an option in all classes.
The Impala suspension hinted at a more focused mission than a soft-dome full-size sedan.
Front struts and rear multi-link setup are aided by aggressive damping that swallows big bumps and bounces through small ones. Weight 3.88 pounds Sterling Impala is guarded with a short strap with a promising rebound spring.
The Impala rides an 18-inch rubber stock, but is upgraded to a 20-inch scrap with Bridgestone Potenzas.
The natural steering setting comes with a solid steering wheel and repeatable tracking. It’s comfortable without being lazy, and increases with size above Taurus, Azera, and Avalon.
2018 Chevrolet Impala Safety & features
Incomplete damage data, stay tuned.
The 2018 Chevy Impala has not been assessed by federal or independent officials for accident safety. We hold our score until one or both agencies throw one to the wall.
Until recently, Chevy made this year’s standard of rear-view mirrors very lost from the previous basic model.
On top of the standard rearview camera, all models get standard airbag complement, traction control system and stability, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and blind spot monitor.
The 2018 Chevy Impala is offered in LS, LT, and Premier trims. The LS- and LT-trim cars can be equipped with the V-6 as an optional fixture.
The news this year is that all cars are equipped with 8.0 inch touch screen as standard equipment, and all models get a rearview camera.
Above average, we give Impala a point for a good infotainment system and another point for good basic equipment. The extra choice is okay from the ordinary, so Impala gets 7 out of 10 on our scale
All Impala sedans have power features, air conditioning, cruise control, and 18-inch alloy wheels. The LS LS model exchanges fabrics for children’s fabrics / leather this year, which is better for incoming buyers, and includes an 8.0 inch infotainment screen that shows a small storage pocket when pressing a button.
Now the LS model is better pruned, we have difficulty to justify the price to switch to LT model, which adds long-range starters and LED lights are on.
Moving into the Premier this year adds 19-inch alloy wheels, adjustable front seats, sunroof, premium Bose audio, leather seats, navigation and wireless phone charger.
With all the options-power tilt / telescoping steering; navigation; Wheel 20 inches; Bose Audio; Adaptive cruise control; And the ventilated seats – the Premier Impala could cost more than $ 40,000.
MyLink offers the functionality of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto-it can reflect some of the smartphone functions on the car’s touchscreen display-and wireless charging for mobile phones, as an option.
