Chevrolet’s full-size Impala sedan will climb about $700 after its launches in late 2013 as a fully redesigned car.
But that price increase brings more than a new price. The car rides on a significantly more refined platform than the old car which was often relegated to fleet duty.
When it launches, the car will come with three engine options: a 2.5-liter four cylinder for the base car, a 305-hp 3.6-liter V6 and finally a 2.4-liter four cylinder with GM’s eAssist technology. That hybrid system is the same as seen on the Malibu Eco, which was named the most disliked car of the year by Fortune Magazine for its “mild” hybrid technology.
Those who choose the V6 will be able to select either the LT or LTZ packages which start at $30,750 and $36,580 respectively. Pricing for the 2.4-liter eAssist model is still unannounced.
