2020 Chevrolet Impala: Individuality Restored

These days we get to see lesser number of large sized sedans, since crossovers have taken over the automotive market with their utility value. The large sedans which have been a signature of elite class car users started facing a slow sale, as they guzzle more power, which is now a global issue as well.

A staff at the Flagstaff Chevrolet dealer revealed the face that in such scenario most of the car enthusiasts and experts predicted that Chevrolet might choose to discontinue the Impala series and its last model we are seeing is the 2019 model. But to everybody’s surprise, the automaker has released the Impala series for the 2020 model year with even more zeal and pride. Though the trim levels have reduced into two, the value it brought back cannot be measured in mere terms of practicality, but in higher ways. So, apart from offering a sprawling cabin, a large trunk, a capable performance, and serene ride, what the 2020 Chevrolet Impala did is restoring individuality in the face of unrecognizable utility.

Power and Performance

To release the Impala for 2020, Chevrolet has dropped from its lineup the 197-horsepower making four-cylinder engine and kept only a 3.6-liter V6 engine for all the model variants that can make 305 of horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque after being paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. Irrespective of the trim of 2020 Impala you choose, this powertrain remains the standard and sole available combination as of now.

Unique Trim Levels

The 2020 Chevrolet Impala being a full-size sedan is now divided in two unique trim flavors. The LT and the Premium.

The LT being the base model has replaced the earlier LS and the compensation is done with standardizing a host of advanced features as well as option packages.

For infotainment and connectivity it offers an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, an inbuilt 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, a six-speaker audio system with two USB ports and satellite radio.

The upgrading optional packages include a Driver Confidence package with features like blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and rear parking sensors, while the Convenience package enables a power outlet, heated front seats and steering wheel and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The Premier trims will have most of the above said features but will replace the tires with 19-inch wheels and equip the model with unique exterior accents and xenon headlights. Inside the atmosphere can get posher with ambient lighting, fine leather upholstery, , a power passenger seat, a wireless smartphone charging pad, a navigation system while an 11-speaker Bose audio system will deliver crystal clear sound quality for playing the media files.
