2011 Chevy Impala LS

2011 Chevrolet Impala Review

(2 Stars)  Your next Ford Crown Victoria

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Chevrolet Impala has been around since the early sixties and did go away for quite a few years, but when the Impala premiered again in 2006 these cars were extremely popular. This vehicle is the longest lasting American sedan on the road today. Just a few years ago, the Chevrolet Impala stopped offering a V-8 engine and started using smaller more efficient V-6 engines instead. The current options are either a 3.5 liter or a 3.9 liter V-6 and the only choice for transmission is a 4 speed automatic. This large front wheel drive sedan has not received any useful updates in a few years time and it is due for some more powerful engine choices and a newer transmission if nothing else.

The Impala does offer a very generous amount of room for passengers in the front and in the back seats of this family car. The Impala is a very solid car, but does not offer any high end features or flair, this is traditional 4 door from Chevy, but you can get a great price on these if you are not looking for a vehicle with more features.
