With the introduction of the 2018 Chevrolet Impala model we are getting a fully operational car which will trump the previous one in so many ways. The Impala was once considered as a flagship model of the Chevy fleet and its big and bold features were the greatest standpoint for the car to be considered as such. But things did not fan out as planned and although the Impala is a great car now, in the beginning it could have been better.

The Chevrolet Impala was actually updated a few years ago and it was a far cry of the old models that the Impalas were. The Impala of today is sexy, very comfortable, easy to drive and does not consume as much as the old types of cars used to. The 2018 Update will bring us more of that as they are making the new car as a direct continuation of the cars that we used to witness some time ago.

The new 2018 Chevrolet Impala is an engaging new model. It addresses some parts like the comfort and the fuel consumption a little bit with the improvements that they have but one thing that we are extremely happy about is the better driving ability. They have also managed to improve upon this and as a result of the update we have gained a magnificent new car with a better solution than before.

Exterior Design and Style

How does the 2018 Chevrolet Impala improve the exterior design? Simple, by offering us the same formula that it worked the last time. The old Impala models were considered as immensely boring and dull models and the design was one of the biggest problems that the cars faced. But the Impalas of today are perhaps GM’s best improvement that they have made for any car in their lineup. The car is now muscular just where it needs to be and they do not take things too much where they do not have to. The car looks busy but in a good way and the shape is chiseled to perfection.

The new sheet metal makes a whole lot of difference for the 2018 Impala. It presents a really gorgeous collection of panels with crisp and attractive lines. It appears as if this time they managed to get a lot of things right which many vehicles did not managed to do before. The front end, or in fact the grille part, resembles a Honda design while the headlights borrow the look of a Saab car. Three are some ribs and lines stamped into to hood, but even this looks exciting and good.

The overall shape looks pretty exciting and we can even see some something borrowed from a Mercedes CLS as the lines intersect in the same manner as in this car. The shoulder lines have new and smartly pressed creases and it looks overall great. This is actually an effort to change the car as much as possible but at the same time help it get a distinct look.

Interior Setup

Although the inside of the 2018 Chevrolet Impala looks good, it is maybe too busy for some tastes. The lines are a little bit hyperactive and the design has been done haphazardly. It all seems that it has a plan but we do not see it. This is an attempt to make things more extreme but does not result in the desired way as they planed it to be. The ebb and flow of the dash will require you to move your eyes constantly so it might distract you from other things. But it is not to say that the car does not have what it needs. In terms of equipment and technology it does provide a standard and a good offer which we appreciate having.

But the spacing and the comfort are exceptional for the Impala. The car is perhaps a class leading model when it comes to offering comfort. There are seats which are changeable depending on the trim level and also based on the choice and the equipment one gets, but the bottom line is that there is ample space to enjoy. The front end perhaps offers something that not many modern cars do and that is exceptional headroom and legroom. The seats are also wrapped in leather and there are overall soft and comfy materials all around you inside the car.

Engine

The improved driving ability of the 2018 Chevrolet Impala helps it gain some of the best road manners that one has seen in the segment. The car has improved well and it sports a very good and a new offer that we can all enjoy. There are going to be two engines offered. The base is the 2.5-liter inline-4 and the second one is the more powerful 3.6-liter V-6. The base one is capable of making 196 horsepower while the stronger one leaps all the way to 305 horsepower. The stronger engine also has exceptional acceleration ability as it can reach 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds time.

When it comes to fuel consumption, although the Impala is a big car, it does not suffer from some of the usual problems and characteristics any other big car has. The 4-cylinder Impala is capable of making 22 mpg city, 30 highway, and 25 combined, while the V-6 version makes 19/28/22 or 18/28/22 mpg.

Release Date and Price

The release date of the 2018 Chevrolet Impala is set for the end of the year. The car is going to be an update so we will not need to wait too much for it. In fact the best time for the car is to arrive by the end of 2017. As for the price, the car will be similarly priced as the outgoing model. This means a starting price of 27,500 USD for the base LS trim, 29,765 USD for the LT one and 35,845 USD for the Premier trim.
