New Chevrolet Impala To Borrow Cadillac’s XTS Platform

General Motors has recently revealed plans of a shift in production for the next-generation Chevrolet Impala. The new Impala will soon be produced in the Detroit-Hamtramck plant, rather than the Oshawa, Canada facility that currently builds the car.

The next Impala will be based on Cadillac’s upcoming XTS sedan meaning the Impala will grow in size compared to the current model. The XTS will receive the GM 3.6-liter direct-injected V6 likely to appear in the Impala. The XTS was shown with available all-wheel-drive meaing there is a possibility the Impala may receive a similar system, as well as a hybrid drivetrain.

The next Impala will likely see production in late 2012, with sales beginning in early 2013 featured as a 2014 model.
