The 2023 Chevrolet Impala is a full-size automobile manufactured by Chevrolet. The 2023 Chevrolet Impala is Chevrolet’s popular flagship passenger car and was among the best-selling American-made cars in the United States. The 2023 Impala name was first used for the full-size 1956 General Motors Motorama show car, which carried Corvette-like design cues, particularly the grille. The first design sketch directly affecting the finished Chevrolet car was seen in October by Harley Earl, Vice President of General Motors Styling. Seven months later the basic design was developed.
The Chevrolet Impala 2023 model will come in two trim options: LT and Premier. The basic LT skin comes with a number of standard features that it believes will satisfy most customers. These include technical amenities such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as standard comforts such as an electrically adjustable driver’s seat and dual-zone automatic climate control. Both pieces of equipment are combined with a powerful V6 engine and standard six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is also standard.
2023 Chevrolet Impala : Interior
The 2023 Impala’s spacious interior is the ideal family car, as sitting in the backseat is nothing short of punishment. Interior materials range from almost luxurious to slightly inexpensive, and the cabin could use a refresh to bring its design in line with the more recent competition. Soft-touch materials are found in most key touch areas, such as the armrests, door panels, and upper instrument cluster, but a quick caress of the sides of the glove box or center console reveals the Impala’s cost-cutting secrets. The faux wood finish of the Premier test vehicle missed the mark, looking cheap and tacky rather than luxurious. However, the white leather seats with tan stripes in the test vehicle exuded an air of opulence, and their pleasantly soft cushioning provided good support and comfort for long rides.
The Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system is intuitive, minimally distracting to the driver, and responds very quickly to user inputs. Both the standard six-speaker stereo and the upgraded 11-speaker Bose system leave much to be desired, but numerous other standard tech features make the Impala’s system appealing. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot are standard and provide easy access to maps, podcasts, points of interest, and streaming music. Three USB ports are standard; one of them is hidden in a box behind the infotainment screen; this port reveals a handy box where you can keep the valuables out of sight by starting the engines at the touch of a button.
2023 Chevrolet Impala : Engine
The Impala 2023 Chevrolet is offered with front-wheel drive only, with two engines available to power them. The 197-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder drowsy is standard, while the 305-hp 3.6-liter V-6 is optional; Both send their power via a six-speed automatic transmission. The Impala’s optional V-6 engine has EPA scores that lag behind similarly strong competitors like the LaCrosse and Nissan Maxima; the standard four-cylinder engine provides only a minor improvement in this metric. The Impala Premier test car matched the Maxima 200-mile highway fuel-economy test route with a 32 mpg result, outperforming a four-cylinder LT model that managed just 28 mpg.
