The North American based automaker Chevrolet has recently teased the new generation of the Impala and the facelifted version of the Traverse, ahead of the vehicles’ official debut at the 2012 New York Auto Show, which will open its gates on the 4th of April.

The new Chevrolet Impala is in its 10th generation and it’s expecting to get a dramatic new look, with the company trying to change its reputation for being a rental car. According to the car manufacturer, the all-new Chevrolet Impala, which will wear the 2014 model year in its name, will be based on the extended Epsilon II platform and besides its “classic” powertrains, it will also feature a hybrid version, along with a turbocharged four-cylinder unit and a 3.6 liter V6 with 300 horsepower.

“The momentum at Chevrolet continues to build with the debut of the 10th generation of the Impala, one of the brand’s most enduring and cherished nameplates. The new Impala further strengthens Chevrolet’s passenger car lineup by giving consumers a full-size sedan that balances the desire for distinction with engaging driving dynamics”, said the VP of Global Chevrolet Marketing, Chris Perry.

Besides the all-new Impala, Chevrolet has also teased the 2013 Traverse, which is actually a facelift of the current model. According to the automaker, the 2013 Chevrolet Traverse will come with a front center airbag and the “classic” redesigned headlamps and taillights. Besides the Traverse and Impala, Chevy will also introduce, at the same 2012 New York Auto Show, the Malibu Eco, Spark mini car, Tru 140S and the Code 130R, along with the Corvette 427 with its 60th Anniversary Package.
