Chevy To Introduce Redesigned Impala At New York Show
The upcoming New York Auto Show will be a surprise ‘gala’ for car enthusiasts all around, with a wide range of cars scheduled to be introduced. For instance, the redesigned Chevrolet Impala will be introduced next month at the show by General Motors Company. Considered to be the 10th generation of the large sedan, the 2014 Impala will complete an overhaul of Chevy’s car lineup. GM has been restructuring itself in recent years, introducing several new and redesigned models, that includes the Chevy Sonic subcompact that launched last year. A rear-wheel-drive edition of the Chevrolet Impala was initially planned for the 2011 model year, but was later scrapped as part of GM’s deep cost-cutting of 2008 and 2009. The company has not revealed any details regarding the new version of the Impala, but it is expected to be built on a longer version of GM’s Epsilon platform, which underpins the existing Buick LaCrosse and the Cadillac XTS due in showrooms in May.
“The new Impala further strengthens Chevrolet’s passenger car lineup by providing customers a full-size sedan that balances the need for distinction with engaging driving dynamics,” said Chris Perry, vice president of global Chevrolet marketing.
Apart from the Impala, GM also plans to introduce an improved version of the Chevrolet Traverse, one of three GM crossovers built on its Lambda platform, that will be revised for the 2013 model year. While not revealing too much, the company said that the Traverse will feature the industry’s first front-center airbag engineered to protect drivers and front passengers in far side-impact crashes. Meanwhile, a re-skinned Buick Enclave is also expected to be unveiled during the New York Auto Show.
