The 2015 Chevrolet Impala Bi-Fuel sedan was announced by General Motors for those who want a cheaper way to drive. As you may know already, compressed natural gas is less expensive than gasoline and also reduces carbon dioxide emissions compared to traditional liquid fuels. Featuring a separate CNG fuel tank mounted in the trunk, the driver can switch between fuels at the push of a button.
Still, when the CNG tank is depleted, the system automatically switches to gasoline. The Impala Bi-fuel is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine rated at 303 hp and 358 Nm (164 lb-ft) of torque when using gasoline, but when using CNG the engine delivers only 85 percent of the power produced with gasoline. Using the CNG, the Impala Bi-fuel has a total range of up to 500 miles.
Despite the fact that a fuel tank is in the trunk, the bi-fuel model offers 10 cubic feet of cargo room. Standard features include ten airbags, air conditioning, Bluetooth for phone, audio system with color infotainment, four-wheel disc brakes, antilock brakes, StabiliTrak electronic stability control system and fuel-saving electric power steering.
Moreover, the 2015 Chevrolet Impala Bi-Fuel is covered by GM’s three-year, 36,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty and five-year, 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty.
