The 2015 Chevy Impala is gaining standard stop-start technology on its base four-cylinder engine, and the car will now sell for a starting price of $28,560.
That makes the new Impala $890 more expensive than the previous model year, a price jump that will get you an extra 1 mpg in the city according to the EPA. Overall, the Impala is rated for 22 mpg in the city, 31 on the highway and 25 mpg combined when equipped with the 2.5-liter four cylinder that makes 195 hp and 187 lb-ft of torque.
To make sure the car is ready for the stop-start system, Chevrolet revised the motor mounts and installed a heavy duty starter motor to cope with the additional ignition cycles.
