Chevrolet kicks off 2014 Impala production at Oshawa Assembly line

Article by Christian A., on April 3, 2013

Chevrolet’s Oshawa Assembly line has started to roll out the all-new 2014 Impala, the automaker’s flagship sedan. Later this month, the Impala will start to arrive in showrooms. Kevin Williams, president and managing director of GM Canada, said that the all-new Impala shows off Chevrolet’s new direction.

He also said that its Oshawa workers have implemented a perfect plan in bringing to life this nameplate. He added that the recently redesigned Impala will surpass customers’ expectations due to the hard work of its employees. Production of the 2014 Impala will start this May at General Motors’ Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Plant.

There are several new features in the 2014 Impala, including the Adaptive Cruise Control and crash-avoidance technologies such as Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert. It is equipped with 10 standard airbags, making it one of the vehicles that have the most number in the segment. The 2014 Impala is where the automaker is set to debut its MyLink radio.

The in-vehicle entertainment system comes with a customizable eight-inch color display screen. This also marks the first time for Chevrolet to feature natural voice recognition. It will be offered with three direct-injection engine options.

These are a 3.6L V-6, a newly designed 2.5L four-cylinder and a 2.4L four-cylinder with fuel-saving eAssist technology that’s expected to return up to 35 mpg on highway driving. Its engines have all been matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. The 2014 Chevrolet Impala is produced at the highly advanced Flexible Manufacturing line of Oshawa, together with the Chevrolet Camaro, Buick Regal and Cadillac XTS.
