Something to be thankful for this holiday weekend? A price for the 2014 Chevrolet Impala, which will sticker from $27,535 (*inclusive of an $810 destination charge). The latest headline-grabber on the Epsilon II platform, the coming Impala – which will go on sale in Spring 2013 – can be had with either a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 195 horsepower and 187 pound-feet of torque or a 3.6-liter V6 with 305 hp and 264 lb-ft. A 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 182 hp and eAssist light hybrid technology will come soon thereafter, with all powerplants yoked to a six-speed automatic.

The $27,535 base price gets the 2.5-liter in LS trim. It will take another $2,250 to get up to an LT, and then another $4,770 for the top-flight LTZ that runs $34,555. You'll have to wait for that LS model, though, because the 3.6-liter will be the first one to market. Not available in LS trim, the 3.6-liter will command $30,760 in LT spec and $36,580 in LTZ trim.

The conclusion of the most simplistic comparison with the $26,685 2013 Impala is that the sedan's base price has gone up by $850. However, the 2014 Impala is completely new and the base version gets a smaller, less-powerful engine. It's possible that performance figures could be similar even with the price-leader model if tuning and weight are improved, but we'll have to see, as Chevrolet hasn't released any figures yet.

For the moment, a better comparison could be the 3.0-liter LT trims, the 2014 model representing a $2,550 increase over the long-serving outgoing car, albeit with more available features like MyLink with natural voice recognition, ten airbags, adaptive cruise control, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert.

There's a bit more info in the press release below about the Oshawa, Ontario and Hamtramck, Michigan-built model range, but not prices for the 2.4-liter eAssist – those will be announced later.

Chevrolet Announces Pricing for the 2014 Impala
New sedan offers added content and technology starting at $27,535


DETROIT, 2012-11-22 – The all-new 2014 Impala, Chevrolet's flagship sedan, will go on sale this spring with a starting price of $27,535, including an $810 destination charge.

Impala was America's best-selling full-size sedan in 2011, with sales of more than 171,000, which made it one of the 10 best-selling cars in the United States

"We'll build on the success the Impala nameplate has generated over its history," said Chris Perry, vice president, Chevrolet marketing. "We've added sophisticated design features, more technology and safety equipment, while conserving Impala's current strengths like spaciousness and comfort."

Chevrolet's latest MyLink radio debuts in the 2014 Impala. The in-vehicle entertainment system adds an eight-inch color display screen that is customizable. The system also adopts natural voice recognition – a first for Chevy.

The 2014 Impala has several new features, including Adaptive Cruise Control and crash-avoidance technologies like Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert. Ten standard airbags are included as well – among the most in the segment.

Three direct-injection engine choices will be available to customers: a 3.6L V-6, a newly designed 2.5L four-cylinder and a 2.4L four-cylinder with fuel-saving eAssist technology that is estimated to deliver 35 mpg. All engines are matched to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The 2014 Impala will be offered in LS, LT and LTZ trim levels.

The 3.6L, 305-horsepower-engine will come to market first, with a starting price of $30,760 for the LT and $36,580 for the LTZ, including destination charges.

The 2.5L engine is priced as follows: $27,535 for the LS; $29,785 for the LT; $34,555 for the LTZ.

Pricing for the 2.4L engine with eAssist will be announced later.

The new Impala will be built in the Oshawa, Ontario, and Detroit-Hamtramck, Mich., assembly plants.

Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is now one of the world's largest car brands, doing business in more than 140 countries and selling more than 4million cars and trucks a year. Chevrolet provides customers with fuel-efficient vehicles that feature spirited performance, expressive design, and high quality.

      That is actually a much bigger increase thank 800 bucks because I don't think anyone bought the Impala at that price point, no offense but I always see adds where they have HUGE amounts of cash on the hood.

      The exterior styling is overall pleasing, but the interior is not very good. Different colors, shapes and that piece of leather over the instrument panel remind me of a bad hairpiece. And there's a chrome strip on the instrument panel and then what looks like brush aluminum by the transmission shifter...it just doesn't match.

      This car does not need a V8, I thought GM was bonkers when they put one in the last generation Impala SS. The torque steer was horrendous from what I‘ve heard being a FWD car even with traction control on it did funky stuff. Besides the V8 in the last Impala SS produced 303 horsepower and 323 pound-feet of torque the current V6 in this one is close to that just less torque, 305 hp and 264 lb-ft. and roughly a second slower. 2006 Impala SS 5.3L V8: 0-to-60 time of 5.6 seconds 2014 Impala 3.6L V6: 0 to 60 time of 6.8 seconds I rather wait for the Chevy SS, a RWD platform that can handle that power better.

        I had an 07 SS. Torque steer was definitely there but not horrendous. It was a decent car if you weren't buying it as a performance platform. I just needed something to lease for a couple years and got a good deal on the V8 SS. Was fine for a highway cruiser which is all I needed. But yea, I'm surprised GM held onto the retarded FWD/V8 formula for so long. Didn't help that the transmission in that car wasn't really up to the task and they often failed, even with all the electronic nannies that would try to keep you from beating on the car (floor it from a stop with the tires turned at all and it would bog down and barely go until you got out of the gas. Annoying but needed I guess to keep the tranny from grenading itself. I can't wait to see what they do with the SS when it comes out. I'd agree, with that coming no need for a larger engine in the Impala (unless they gave it AWD and a power boost to compete with the SHO, but I'd doubt that would happen).

      Everyones talking about how this car is oddly proportioned and ugly. I guess everyone just wnats the same old cookie cutter designs that got gm into trouble in the first place. This car is sex wether you think so or not.

      Meh. Rather have an SS sedan (call it Chevelle you dumbasses!).

      All the negatives in the comment section is a good sign. It means you got the fanboys of other brand's panties in a twist and they're just looking to vent.
      Meh...

      I fear that this car is the beginning of the end for the "new GM". Apparently they just can't shape a decent car in that segment...

        @Meh...
        I agree. The full-size car, like the minivan, is an inigma to GM.
          Meh...

          @Karfreek
          I know, right. The worst part is that with end products like this GM is just showing that they want to dig themselves into another failure and we've already paid for the shovel. Come on GM you could do better than this.

      i did a double take at the badge. It literally is the lovechild of an accord and a camry.

      GM is suffering for not having a proper design. They all come out with random different things (boring). Why recycling the Camaro styling here with a Toyota sauce? Just awful.

        This comment coming from somebody who drives an S40. Talk about awful.

          A T4, Cupra R, and the S4. Try to upgrade your '92 Civic, there are better choices for sure, including your dumb comment.

        Ever saw a Camry? It happens to be the best selling car in America, or the Cruze, which is now outselling Corolla and Civic. The automotive hogs like you and I are nowhere near the 1% of the car buying public.

          The Cruze's fleet ratio is FAAAARRRRRR higher than the Civic. It really isn't anything to brag about, guy.

      GM's ability to make new cars that look like they came from a decade old time capsule never ceases to amaze me. Should be the perfect boring fleet update for my local Hertz.

          Yea, the fact they have the Caprice for police duty alone will dramatically cut fleet sales.
