2012 Chevrolet Impala to receive new engine! New model coming in 2014!

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 8, 2011

We have bad news for the Chevrolet Impala fans who were hoping to get a completely new 2012 model year as numerous dealerships and sources say that the 2012 Impala will only get one engine and transmission option.

The only option you will see for the 2012 Impala will be GM’s new 3.6-liter V6 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, which will also be seen on other 2012 models from the American manufacturer.

This means that when the Buick Lucerne production will end this year, the Impala will remain the only product from GM to utilize the 3.5-liter and 3.9-liter V6 engines.

So, don’t expect other significant changes from the 2012 Chevrolet Impala. If you want a completely new model, you will have to wait the new model, which will arrive in February 2013 as a 2014 model year.

The 2014 Chevrolet Impala will receive GM’s new Global Epsilon platform, which means the same wheelbase as the upcoming Cadillac XTS sedan. According to our sources, the next-generation Impala has been pushed back several more months for unknown reasons. [via GMInsideNews]
