Model Highlights

The 2015 Impala is powered by one of two engines, each mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Engine choices include a 2.5L 4-cylinder making 196 horsepower and a 3.6L V6 making 305 horsepower. The 2.5 features all-new stop/start technology, which shuts down the engine in certain driving conditions to reduce fuel consumption. Chevrolet claims that the V6 is the most powerful naturally aspirated V6 in its class.

The Impala comes in a number of different trims including LS, 1LT, 2LT, 1LTZ and 2LTZ. LS trims are the most basic and feature cloth seats, a 6-speaker 100-watt sound system with a 4.2 inch color display, an 8-way power adjustable driver's seat, steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls, keyless entry, automatic headlights, a noise cancellation system, 18-inch wheels and a 6-month subscription to GM's OnStar service.

1LT versions get dual-zone climate control, heated mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, nicer 18-inch alloy wheels and a better stereo, which features Chevrolet's MyLink System, as well as an 8-inch screen. 2LT versions are nearly identical but also include the 3.6L V6.

1LTZ impalas feature a bevy of luxury features. As in the LT versions, 1LTZ and 2LTZ are the same, save for engine choice. Both trim levels include features such as a remote starter, keyless access and start, a heated driver and front passenger seats, ambient interior lighting, a rearview camera, 19-inch wheels, HID headlamps, chrome door handles and LED running lamps. The LTZ models also come standard with a host of extra safety features, including a lane departure warning system, cross traffic alert, blind zone alert and rear park assist.

The additional safety features of the LTZ are also available on LT trimmed Impalas. All Impalas though, feature anti-lock brakes, traction control, OnStar with automatic crash response, stability control and a total of ten airbags.

Model News

Following a complete redesign last year, the 2015 Chevrolet Impala receives few major changes. Among them, stop/start technology is now standard on the 2.5L Ecotec engine, which improves city fuel economy by nearly 5 percent, to 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. Elsewhere, the 2.4L hybrid model with eAssist has been dropped from the lineup.

Value Writeup

The Chevrolet Impala is a large sedan competing in the near-luxury segment. Starting at under $28,000, the Impala undercuts the price of many entry-level luxury cars while still offering plenty of luxury features. It also includes substantially more room than many buyers might be expecting, especially considering a price point similar to that of smaller, midsized cars. A major emphasis has been placed on build quality and interior refinement, improving comfort while reducing noise vibration and harshness.

Risk of Rollover: 12.1%

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.

Recall Information

US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID:
14V541000

Mfg's Report Date:
SEP 09, 2014

Potential Number Of Units Affected:
205,309

Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Cadillac XTS vehicles manufactured February 14, 2012, to August 22, 2014, and 2014-2015 Chevrolet Impala vehicles manufactured November 5, 2012, to September 2, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the electronic parking brake piston actuation arm may not fully retract causing the brake pads to stay partially engaged.

Consequence:
Brake pads that remain partially engaged with the rotors may cause excessive brake heat that may result in a fire.

Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the electronic parking brake software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September 2014. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, or Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14471.

Notes:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID:
14V489000

Mfg's Report Date:
AUG 08, 2014

Component:
STRUCTURE

Potential Number Of Units Affected:
14,940

Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Chevrolet Impala vehicles manufactured May 7, 2014, to July 28, 2014. In the event of an accident, the center storage console may not stay latched. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 201, "Occupant Protection In Interior Impact."

Consequence:
The storage compartment door may not remain closed in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of occupant injury.

Remedy:
Parts to remedy this condition are not currently available. GM will send owners an interim notification in early October 2014, and will send a second letter when parts are available. At that time dealers will inspect, and if necessary, replace the console storage compartment door inertia latch, free of charge. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 14476.

Notes:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID:
15V465000

Mfg's Report Date:
JUL 24, 2015

Component:
AIR BAGS

Potential Number Of Units Affected:
5,493

Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Chevrolet Impala vehicles manufactured April 15, 2013, to June 19, 2015, equipped with front vented-heated passenger seats. Accordingly, the Automatic Occupant Sensing (AOS) system may fail to suppress the front passenger air bag if a child seat is in the front passenger seat. These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."

Consequence:
If the front passenger air bag deploys with a child seat in the front passenger seat, it increases the risk of injury to the child.

Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will correct the calibration-learning error by preconditioning the empty seat, and also resetting the ECU to a seat zero-value, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 15400.

Notes:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
