The powertrain lineup includes an Ecotec 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine coupled with GM's eAssist mild hybrid system, which will produce 182 horsepower and is expected to get 35 mpg on the highway.
It will also come with GM's new Ecotec 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine, returning 195 hp, as well as a 3.6-liter V-6 with an estimated 303 hp. All the engine choices will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Darren Post, vehicle line director for the Impala, said that the styling changes and ample technology inside the car, such as adaptive cruise control, will help GM "shift the distribution to younger buyers." "They're going to walk into the showroom and see something that looks aggressive and sporty. And then when they sit in it, they're going to say: 'Wait a minute, is this a luxury car?' "
Inside, GM has deployed a package of acoustic measures to deliver a quiet cabin, including the use of active noise cancellation on the four-cylinder versions. That feature, found in some Cadillac models, uses microphones and sound waves to counteract unwanted noise.
GM also will pack the Impala with several optional safety features typically found on luxury cars. A forward collision-alert system, lane-departure warning and a collision-mitigation system that alerts the driver of an impending crash and applies the brakes are among the features that are a first for a Chevrolet nameplate.
The Impala will come in three trim levels: LS, LT and LTZ. It will be built at GM's Detroit-Hamtramck plant, where the Chevy Volt and Malibu also are assembled, and at its factory in Oshawa, Ontario, where the current car is made.
