At the New York Auto Show, Chevrolet has unveiled the new Impala sedan – a vehicle that features striking new sheetmetal that represents the next evolution of Chevrolet’s design vocabulary.
According to GMInsideNews, Chevy has zero plans of offering an AWD version of the Impala in either the near or distant future. Why? Because the US based automaker considers that all-wheel-drive vehicles are only a small part of the full-size car market. But this statement is downright false, to some experts.
It remains to be seen whether the lack of all-wheel drive will hurt the Impala’s chances of competing with other sendas that actualy offer AWD like the … Ford Taurus and Dodge Charger …
Powertrains for the new Impala include a 182-horsepower, 2.4-liter four, which is expected to get 35 mpg on the highway, and a 303-hp, 3.6-liter V-6. Both get a six-speed automatic transmission, and all Impalas are front-wheel drive.
GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck, Mich., and Oshawa, Ontario factories will build the car.
Chevy will announce prices later.
