2016 Chevy Impala ss, release date, awd
The 2016 Chevy Impala is a full-size sedan that will be based on Australian Commodore platform rather than the current version of the Impala. It will have better handling, superior in performance, fuel economy and come with a price tag that is barely higher than the currently available model. To compete with other super sedans, GM has incorporated some significant changes to 2016 Chevy Impala exterior, interior and powertrain to make it a completely redesigned package that will be hard to ignore by anyone.
2016 Chevy Impala: Redesign Exterior and Interior
The body of the upcoming 2016 Chevy Impala will boast of sportier design as well as advanced aerodynamic shape. It has undergone a drastic change in its front and features revised bumpers, bolder grille and LED daylight running lamps. This four-door vehicle will ride on 18 inch steel wheels that will give it a much needed aggressive stance. There is also word that this car will shed some of its previous weight, thus leading to increased fuel efficiency and better handling throughout.
Changes to the car’s interior are also worth mentioning as its cabin has undergone some changes as well. We are excited to report that this car will boast of improved comfort elements like leather wrapped seats, more head and legroom alongside added cargo space. This car can support up to 5 passengers comfortably. Additionally, there will be a host of new and improved technological upgrades that will make this car stay ahead of its competition.
We are expecting the old 4.2 inch central screen to be replaced by a 7 inch screen that would control navigation, Satellite Radio, cruise control and other utility features. The audio system has received a major overhaul and will now come with 14 speakers. Additional connectivity features will include Bluetooth and USB ports for smartphone integration.
2016 Chevy Impala: Engine Specs
This is the segment where the main attraction of 2016 Chevy Impala lies. The car will offer four different kinds of engines to suit every requirement of its users.
- The base variant will have a 2.5 litre inline- 4 engines that will provide a maximum horsepower of 195 and 187 lb-ft of torque
- The second in line is a 2.4 litre inline- 4 engines with eAssist that can deliver around 182 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque
- The most powerful version of the engine will be a 3.6 litre LFX that will have the capability to produce around 305 and 264 lb-ft of torque
All these engines are to be paired with the same gearbox that its base version will have, so the power factor does feel a bit limited. The second in line 2.4 litre unit has been reported to provide maximum mileage, returning over 30 mpg on an average for combined drive.
2016 Chevy Impala: Release Date and Price
General Motors has set the release date of this car near the end of 2015. As for the price of 2016 Chevy Impala, we expect its base variant to cost same as the current model, which is around $ 30 000 and go high as $ 50 000 for the top most model.
