Months after first showing off its all-new 2014 Impala, Chevrolet finally disclosed the price tag for its all-new 2014 Impala, in advance of it going on sale next spring. It will take just $27,535 to get into a base-level 2014 Chevrolet Impala.
That $27,535 price gets buyers the full-size sedan in base LS trim equipped with a 2.5-liter I-4 rated at 195 hp and 187 lb-ft of torque. Chevrolet has yet to detail equipment levels of the various trims, but stepping up to the mid-grade Impala LT with the four-cylinder will cost $29,785 and the top-level Impala LTZ will run $34,555.
The 2014 Impala will also offer two other powertrain options: a mild-hybrid eAssist model with a 2.4-liter I-4 good for 182 hp and 178 lb-ft, and a 3.6-liter direct-injected V-6 that produces 303 hp and 264 lb-ft. Pricing for the Impala eAssist will be announced closer to when it goes on sale, but the V-6 will start at $30,760 in LT guise or $36,580 for the LTZ.
Expect to see Impala LTZs to boast up-level tech like rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control. Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system, which incorporates an eight-inch touchscreen, will also make an appearance in the 2014 Impala.
How does the Impala stack up against its competition? The large family sedan class is essentially all-new, with an overhauled Impala and 2013 Toyota Avalon arriving next year; the Hyundai Azera was new this year, and the Ford Taurus received a major update for 2013, as well. The oldest car in the class is now the Nissan Maxima, which debuted in its current form back in 2009.
The 2014 Impala undercuts all but the 2013 Ford Taurus on price – the Ford is just $140 cheaper than the Chevrolet. The 2013 Avalon starts at $31,785; pricing begins at $33,125 for the Azera; and the Maxima retails for $33,570. However, the Impala’s base price is for the 2.5-liter four – all the others come with standard V-6 engines – with the V-6, the Impala still beats out the competition with its $30,760 base price. That bargain price tag isn’t without its downside: the Impala’s four-cylinder is down on power by a large margin to all of the standard V-6s; on the other hand, the Chevrolet’s V-6 is the second-most powerful of the bunch, trailing only the 365-hp Ford Taurus SHO
