2018 Chevy Impala might get turbocharged engine


Impala – is a legendary model of a GM’s Chevrolet brand, and the only full-size sedan model in its lineup, also widely used in law enforcement services. Debuted as a 2014 model, the latest generation has found a new design and modern form. Since then, changes with each model year represents only the emergence of new options and trim levels.

Updating the 2018 Chevy Impala will bring no major changes in the appearance of the car, but interesting changes are expected in the trim levels, as well as some technical innovations associated with the power plant and transmission.

However, some sources report that the 2018 Chevrolet Impala can move to the new platform, as well as the recently debuted 2017 Buick LaCrosse.

The cost of a new full-size sedan is slightly changed, but it is likely to remain at the same level, and will be about $ 28,000 for the base trim level. Along with the Taurus model from Ford, Impala remains the most affordable full-size sedan on the market.

2018 Chevy Impala design

The overall design of 2018 Impala will remain the same. It is too early for mid-cycle enhancements, which more likely to take place in late 2018. So, there might be only small updates to exterior appearance, just new colors, and redesigned badges.

The interior will also keep its initial design, with only minor trimming changes. It is also likely that infotainment system will get an update.

Impala exterior is still modern, and certainly, do not need to be changed. Elegant shape and streamlined look a little bit spoiled only by a bulky rear end.

The most interesting and drastic changes will take place underneath the car. There are rumors that Impala 2018 might get a whole new P2XX platform recently debuted on 2017 LaCrosse. However, it requires a complete redesign and reengineering, so it is quite unlikely for a car, widely used in civil service.

The most notable changes in 2018 Chevy Impala in terms of specifications including the introduction of the new entry-level engine. It will be 1.5-liter turbocharged I4 producing around 200 HP. Turbo unit will be used instead of current 2.5L naturally aspirated 4-cylinder LCV-series engine.

The top-trim V6 will be also updated by a new 3.6L V6 unit of LGX-series. Both powertrains will be mated with a new 8-speed automatic transmission.

    I like the impala, but do not like the rear quarter body lines, and how they abruptly turn down. They feel forced and contrived. Straight belt line would look better. Tail lights are boring too. Interior, the central front heat vents on the sides of the display are awkward, but equally as awkward as the vents on most chevys seem the same…
