Chevrolet’s full-size offering, the Impala, will only experience a modest price increase over the outgoing model.

The 2014 model will start at $28,445 in LS trim with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. This raises the base price a mere $145 versus the 2013 Impala. LT and LTZ models will be priced from $31,445 and $36,445 respectively with the same 4-cylinder.

If you yearn for more cylinders, the 305-hp 3.6L V6 engine will also be available starting in LT trim at $32,945 for the LT and $39,645 for the LTZ.

The last engine option, a 2.4L with eAssist, will be priced later.

Chevrolet Announces Pricing for the 2014 Impala
All-new, completely redesigned sedan offers added content and technology starting at just $28,445

OSHAWA, Ont. – The all-new 2014 Impala, Chevrolet’s flagship sedan, built in Oshawa, will go on sale this spring with a starting price of $28,445 – just $145 more than the 2013 Impala it replaces.

“The Impala nameplate has a long and rich history and this redesign demonstrates the new iconic direction of Chevrolet,” said Kevin Williams, president and managing director of GM Canada. “Built right here in Oshawa, the 2014 Impala features an all-new, redesigned exterior, interior and powertrain offerings. With segment leading safety features and technologies, it will offer driving dynamics and performance that are certain to please our customers.”

Chevrolet’s latest MyLink radio debuts in the 2014 Impala. The in-vehicle entertainment system adds an eight-inch color display screen that is customizable. The system also adopts natural voice recognition – a first for Chevy.

The 2014 Impala has several new features, including Adaptive Cruise Control and crash-avoidance technologies like Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert. Ten standard airbags are included as well – among the most in the segment.

Three direct-injection engine choices will be available to customers: a 3.6L V-6, a newly designed 2.5L four-cylinder and a 2.4L four-cylinder with fuel-saving eAssist technology that is estimated to deliver as low as 5.6L/100km Highway. All engines are matched to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The 2014 Impala will be offered in LS, LT and LTZ trim levels.

The 3.6L, 305-horsepower-engine will come to market first, with a starting price of $32,945 for the LT and $39,645 for the LTZ.  The 2.5L engine is priced as follows: $28,445 for the LS; $31,445 for the LT; $36,445 for the LTZ. Destination charge on all models is $1,550.

Pricing for the 2.4L engine with eAssist will be announced at a later date.

The new Impala will be built in the Oshawa, Ontario, and Detroit-Hamtramck, Mich., assembly plants.
