2016 Chevrolet Impala Release Date, Price, Pictures, Specs – With a vehicle like the Impala from Chevrolet you absolutely cannot go wrong, and they continue with the same premise for the 2016 year with their newest model Impala. This car has it all, the styling of the vehicle is as impressive as ever and the handling specs and characteristics are also up there in the upper echelon of the class. This time the connectivity features of the vehicle have been enhanced to being you a more modern car and also the safety features of the car as well.
The Chevrolet Impala is a classic vehicle, one that has already made a name for itself and has existed for a long period now. The Impressive stats that it presented along the years are more than good. But lately the Impala has been struggling as it has not been able to produce a vehicle that could set the standard for over a decade. They mostly kept it in the past and have not been able to produce a car which would match the old type of vehicles. But we are predicting that the 2016 model will finally take the car out of this grey spot and bring it back to the spotlight.
What Chevrolet has managed to bring to us for the new model year is the exact inverted option compared to the 2014 model which was regarded as a bust. This means that all of the shortcomings that this vehicle has had have been changed and redone to make the new Impala an impressive choice. The current Impala is well designed and beautiful looking, has better fuel economy and a greater technological upgrade, it even produces much better driving characteristics which are now perhaps the leading detail of the car. Check out the rest of the review for the latest updates brought to the new Chevy Impala.
2016 Chevrolet Impala exterior
With the design problems the Impala has been experiencing over the years and the bland shape of the car it was in, the 2016 model wipes the slate clean and starts from scratch. Going back to the drawing board was a great choice that Chevrolet decided to do and the result is astounding with the car receiving a new shape and a completely new design that changes everything. The introduction of sheet metal designed in a smoother way makes the lines of the vehicle that much attractive. No matter which color you decided to go for it will be a good choice as the design really makes everything look good this way. The grille was designed based on the Honda one while the headlights are taken from the Saab, which combined with the ribs and lines that are incorporated on the hood make a much aggressive and handsome looking vehicle.
The sides of the car have been modeled based on the Mercedes CLS while the back takes a thing or two from the Buick Lacrosse one. The newly modeled look with the crisp and astounding new features of the car makes everything much better and composes everything into a well-designed car. The attractive design adds a much more likeable tone to the car and brings much of the fans back to this nice looking model as it catapults its way into stardom.
The interior of the Chevy Impala has been a bit overwhelmed this time. As they wanted to improve upon the last year’s model they have actually over cramped the new one. This is actually a far better choice than before as it features a much useful surrounding, but one cannot feel that you can get lost inside the interior which features more buttons and controls than before. The materials have been mashed together giving you dozen textures mixed together into one compound.
At some level, the design works as it provides you a well worked interior of the car but as much you get overworked with it the more you are likely to lose control. Yet the controls work more than fine, the big gauges and the large LCD screen are finely tuned as well as for the switches which are matted to the steering wheel that enable you cruise control and the use of other media of the car.
The base engine version that has been fitted under the hood of the Chevy Impala is the 2.5-liter four engine that makes 196 horsepower. It provides some good handling abilities but and can accelerate out of curves but when it comes to accelerating at an uphill it can struggle with this kind of engine as the car might be overloaded with weight. Yet the EPA rating is not so bad as it makes 25 mpg combined. This is why the second engine option that is the 3.6-liter V-6 is perhaps a better choice for the newest Impala. It makes 305 horsepower and is coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission system. This combination enables acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds. It even produces much better driving characteristics if you use the 20-inch wheels that are now available.
Price and release date
The release of the new Chevy Impala has been eagerly awaited and anticipated by the fans but they will have to wait a while longer. This means that the 2016 model will be released next year and there is still no confirmed release date for the Impala given yet. We presume that the earliest that it can come out is the beginning of the year. The price on the other hand has been set at 27,095 USD base MSRP. The LT trim has been priced at 29,460 USD, while the pricing for the LTZ sedan trim has not been made public yet.
