Article by Christian A., on March 21, 2012

GM announced today that the 2014 Chevrolet Impala and 2013 Traverse will make their debut next month at the 2012 New York Auto Show. For those who don’t know, this will be the 10th generation of the Impala so expect a car that will offer quality as well as fuel-efficient powertrains. The Impala nameplate made its first debut back in 1958 and has been one of Chevrolet’s best-selling passenger cars for decades.

Moreover, with the new Impala, Chevrolet has revamped nearly every passenger car in the lineup in the past 24 months. Regarding the 2013 Chevrolet Traaverse, this model will receive a new design in order o give families a new gathering space with elements of style and refinement inside and out.

Considered one of the safest vehicles on the road today, the new 2013 Traverse will receive industry’s first front center air bag, which means that it is planning to keep its title. According to GM, the air bag deploys in milliseconds and inflates between the driver and front passenger, providing added protection for both front occupants.

The 2012 New York Auto Show will also see the new Malibu Eco, Spark mini car, Tru 140S and Code 130R concept vehicles and Corvette 427 Convertible with 60th Anniversary package.

2014 Chevrolet Impala offers a new aesthetic for the brand’s flagship sedan while still honoring the elements that had, for decades, helped distinguish this classic nameplate.

The Chevrolet Impala has long and low proportions that carry a wind-swept profile, which suggests motion. It also has wheels – measuring 18, 19, and 20 inches – that are tailored to the body so as to provide a kind of stance that is "just right."

At the front, the car has low-profile projector-beam headlamps – or, in the case of the LTZ, HID headlamps + LED daytime running lamps – that sweep around its corners as well as frame a wide grille. Meanwhile, a power dome hood communicates great performance. The LED daytime running lamps of the LTZ provide good visibility and contemporary visual statement.

Moreover, sculpted coves on the sides of the car’s body lend some drama to its design, while a sweeping signature cue on its rear fenders acknowledges the classic Impala design. The car also has a long "greenhouse" area, which enhances its sleek look while also maintaining excellent visibility.

Meanwhile, the deck lid looks short so as to complement the car’s overall proportion, yet it opens to show a trunk that offers you 18.8 cubic-feet of cargo space. The Impala also sports diagonal dual-signature taillamps. The LTZ has chrome-outlined exhaust outlets completing its rear-end appearance.

You can choose from these available exterior colors: Black, Summit White, Blue Topaz Metallic, Blue Ray, Crystal Red Tintcoat, Silver Topaz Metallic, Champagne Silver Metallic, Silver Ice Metallic, Cyber Gray, White Diamond Tricoat, and Tin Roof Rusted.

In addition, the new Impala builds on the Chevrolet brand's signature dual-cockpit interior with a great attention to detail as well as with upscale features. These are very apparent in all its elements, from its bold instrument panel’s wraparound flow into its door panels, to its available ambient lighting, to its soft materials and to the premium look of the stitching on its seats.

Chevrolet to Debut All-New Impala and Traverse in New York

DETROIT – The total transformation of the Chevrolet passenger car lineup advances with the debut of the all-new 2014 Impala full-size sedan at the New York International Auto Show next month. Chevrolet will also showcase a more-refined version of the family-friendly Traverse crossover utility vehicle for 2013.

“The momentum at Chevrolet continues to build with the debut of the 10th generation of the Impala, one of the brand’s most enduring and cherished nameplates,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Global Chevrolet Marketing. “The new Impala further strengthens Chevrolet’s passenger car lineup by giving consumers a full-size sedan that balances the desire for distinction with engaging driving dynamics.”

The Impala nameplate was introduced in 1958 and has been one of Chevrolet’s best-selling passenger cars for decades. The all-new version of the Impala builds on that strong heritage.

With the introduction of the new Impala, Chevrolet has revamped nearly every passenger car in the lineup in the past 24 months. The new cars helped Chevrolet become the top-selling passenger car brand in the United States in 2011.

The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse was designed to give families a new gathering space with elements of style and refinement inside and out, as well as new and industry-exclusive safety features.

Traverse is among the safest vehicles on the road today, previously earning top marks from leading third-party organizations and in government crash testing. For the 2013 model, the Traverse adds the industry’s first front center air bag. It is engineered to protect drivers and front passengers in far-side impact crashes. The air bag deploys in milliseconds and inflates between the driver and front passenger, providing added protection for both front occupants.

“The new Traverse builds on the success of the current model offering a wide variety of improvements to ride and handling, interior materials and exterior styling without compromising the functionality and capability families need to support their busy lives,” said Perry.

In addition to the new Impala and Traverse, other Chevrolet vehicles on display at New York include the new Malibu Eco, Spark mini car, Tru 140S and Code 130R concept vehicles and Corvette 427 Convertible with 60th Anniversary package.
