Chevrolet Impala

Change Vehicle

Chevrolet introduced the Impala in 1958 as a high-style, top-of-the-line two-door hardtop and convertible. The next year, four-door hardtops and sedans were added. The Impala Super Sport arrived for 1961, and its top-gun, 409-cubic-inch V-8 was quickly immortalized in a song by The Beach Boys. The fancier Caprice full-size sedan appeared in 1965, but Chevy still sold hundreds of thousands of Impalas annually. GM downsized its big cars for 1977, and the new, smaller Impala was a trend-setter, helping reverse Detroit’s inclination toward longer, lower and wider. The Impala faded away after 1985, but made an unexpected return as the muscular 1994-1996 Impala SS. In 2000, it was reintroduced as a front-drive sedan. The latest Impala debuted for 2014, but with the heart of the market shifting to crossovers and SUVs, this traditional full-size sedan finds itself out of today’s mainstream.

Today’s Impala, introduced as a 2014 model, was a substantial upgrade from the previous generation. New styling added visual interest, and the better-finished interior provided the room expected in a full-size American car. This Impala rode GM’s newer Epsilon front-drive chassis, offered four-cylinder or V-6 engines, and had a wide range of available safety features. Used-car shoppers should note that Chevy continued to sell the 2013-style car through 2016 as the Impala Limited.

2006–2013 Impala

Redesigned in 2006

The Impala was redesigned for 2006 with smooth, but not particularly memorable, styling. Like the 2000 model, the ’06 ran on GM’s W-platform front-drive chassis, which wasn’t far removed from the hardware in the 1990 Chevrolet Lumina. Most Impalas ran V-6 engines (a standard 300-horsepower 3.6-liter arrived in 2012), but the 2006-09 SS boasted a 325-hp, 5.3-liter V-8.

The Impala returned for 2000 as a roomy front-drive sedan, replacing the Lumina. The new car’s styling received mixed reviews; the look may be best remembered for its quartet of large, round taillights. Originally 3.4- and 3.8-liter V-6s were the only engine choices, but in 2004 the Impala SS made another comeback with a 240-hp, supercharged V-6.

Chevy’s old-school Impala SS was available from 1961 through 1969, always as a two-door hardtop or convertible. The muscle legend made a surprise return for 1994 as a rework of the body-on-frame Caprice four-door, which many Americans recognized as their local police department’s favorite cruiser. The new Super Sport’s handsomely clean exterior wore dark paint and subtle badges, while performance upgrades included a 260-hp, 5.7-liter V-8 (it would have been called a 350 small-block back in the 1960s), lowered suspension, sticky rubber on 17-inch wheels, and bucket seats.
