2014 Chevrolet Impala

Impala is an iconic and Chevy got to keep it up with the competition. Ford have launched Taurus a couple years ago, as well as Avalon from Toyota. (I prefer not to include the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger in this list for one main reason, they are RWD.) Regardless, Impala delivers good level of comfort, power, style, and fuel efficiency. Chevy however decides to create a new bench mark with their stylish, yet very humble and mature design and an Ecotec engines with 35 mpg hwy. Numerous tech features will be available as well, such as- Full-speed-range adaptive cruise control, Collision mitigation braking, Forward collision alert, Lane departure warning, Side blind zone alert, Rear cross traffic alert (Based on the radar sensors of side blind zone alert, it warns the driver of vehicles in traffic when backing out of a parking spot – including angled parking), Rear vision camera with dynamic guidelines, Ultrasonic rear park assist, Brake pre-fill feature (To quicken the response time of the brakes and help shorten stopping distances, this features “loads” the brake calipers in anticipation of hard braking by slightly increasing the hydraulic pressure in the brake lines whenever the driver lifts off the accelerator pedal), Hill hold/start assist.

 

Below are the specs that been released to this point, I have estimated the rpm, and 0-60 times. Should be close to other GM products:
