As Chevrolet watched competing full-sized sedans vastly improving, ganging up on the Impala with cutting-edge technology and risky styling, the company realized it was time for a major change. Jumping as far away from the vehicle that had mainly become used in high-volume fleets, the 2014 model Impala takes slight cues from both the Malibu and the Camaro, making for a refreshed, more modern attractive look. The front end has a somewhat universal template from the other Chevys, almost like a clean and organized smile. The rear fender even has a slight pull from the Impalas of old, giving it the slightest bit of necessary nostalgia. On the inside, the cluster has an all-new 4.2-inch color display that supports Chevy MyLink to pair with an 8-inch screen in the center console that has bluetooth streaming, navigation, and smartphone integration. Consumers are given the option of three direct-injected engines, including a 3.6-liter V6, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with eAssist.
