Upcoming 2012 Cars Chevrolet Impala Preview With Specification And Prices
Chevrolet Impala Release Details
When Chevrolet returned the Impala to its lineup after a brief hiatus in 1999 as a 2000 model, many thought that Chevrolet would continue to emphasis the brand’s flagship sedan. Sadly, the GM bankruptcy seems to have cut those dreams short and the Upcoming 2012 Cars that is expected to hit showrooms in late 2011 will be largely unchanged if industry rumors prove to be accurate. Considering the fact that no Impala show cars have hit the car shows only seems to validate the idea that the current Impala will soldier on a bit longer.
The Chevrolet Impala is a full-sized car produced by Chevrolet, a subsidiary of General Motors. It was one of the best selling vehicles in United States and it is one of the most expensive cars in the world
The standard engine to the model include a 5.7 liter V8 version that delivers 340 hp of power, while it also offered 6.7 liter engine as optional.
Seventh Generation (2000-2005)
The seventh generation Chevrolet Impala was released as a replacement to Lumina and it is designed on the platform of W-body. It was offered in front wheel drive. Two engine choices were offered, V6 and super charged V6. Standard engine to the model was a 3.8 liter super charged V6 version that delivers 240 hp of power.
Eighth Generation (2006-Present)
The present Chevrolet Impala model was introduced at Los Angeles Auto Show in 2005. It shares its basic design with Buick LaCrosse. It is offered in three trim versions, the base model LS, LT and high level LTZ.
Chevrolet Impala Future
Sadly, the 9th generation Impala SS was dropped for the 2012 model year but it is an almost given that the SS badge will return when the vehicle is refreshed in a few years. Competitors in the full-sized American car bracket have all but died out with the death of Ford’s Crown Victoria and Dodge/Chrysler losing the Intrepid and the re-branding of the 300. In short, the true full-sized car market is essentially left only to the Impala at the moment, though there are a few imports that are not quite in the same league in terms of price and size.
