The 2014 Chevrolet Impala, which will reach dealerships next spring, will be the first model offering Chevrolet’s next-generation MyLink infotainment system.
The system, which was designed to be capable of linking up to 10 devices, highly customizable and easy to use, is also the automaker’s first use of natural language voice recognition, which offers customers the possibility to safely enter destinations, play music, place calls, browse media and use the other functions only using their voice. Drivers do not need to touch the screen or even look at it and there are no phrases to remember.
Another innovation for the automaker is the fact that the system can store as many as 60 favorites including destinations, radio stations, music, contacts and other media, which is extremely useful especially for those who travel to the same destination regularly and want to save locations. Owners can also customize the graphic treatment of the instrument cluster and integrated stack, choosing from four distinct personalities: Edge, Main Street, Velocity and Contemporary.
“MyLink in the new Impala provides our customers with a total driver experience,” said Nina Mital, next-generation MyLink program manager. “With the natural voice recognition, it’s like having a conversation with your vehicle.”
