What do you desire most from a vehicle? Sure, the Impala may be full of elegant upholsteries and innovative technologies, but the nameplate makes a name for itself in one other way: the mechanics. The 2016 Impala offers a pair of impressive engine options, delivering optimal power without compromising efficiency.
Meanwhile, the accompanying mechanics partner with these engines to present one of the best driving experiences in the segment. The revamped steering unit will put the driver in complete control, while several other functions improve handling and vibration.
Yes, all the extra amenities are nice, but when it comes down to it, you're going to want a reliable and muscular engine. The 2016 Impala certainly delivers in that regard.
Two Powerful Engine Options
The 3.6-liter V6 engine is the main star of the Chevy Impala. The unit is as powerful as it is efficient, providing drivers with an affordable (albeit, fun to drive) sedan. The engine can pump out 305 horsepower and 264 pounds-feet of torque, especially impressive specs when you consider the efficiency.
Thanks to technologies like Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing (along with a six-speed automatic transmission), drivers can expect their Impala to deliver a 29 mile per gallon highway fuel economy.
Meanwhile, the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine produces 196 horsepower and 186 pounds-feet of torque, still perfectly capable specs. Featuring Direct Injection and the innovative Stop/Start technology, drivers should anticipate a 22 city/31 highway mile per gallon efficiency.
Superb Handling and Drivability
Drivers couldn't truly appreciate the capabilities of either engine without the presence of dependable accompanying mechanics. Chevy's engineers refined many driveability and handling factors, presenting drivers with an optimal traveling experience.
The electric rack-and-pinion steering unit will deliver unmatched handling and control, and drivers should never find that they're having difficulties operating the Impala. Meanwhile, the variable-effort doesn't only help improve the vehicle's power, but it also impacts the turning radius.
