2013 Chevy Impala LT

2013 Chevrolet Impala Review

(2 Stars) 

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Chevrolet Impala has not been updated in years, and unsurprisingly sees very few updates for the 2013 model year. In a sense, it is appropriate that the Impala has not been redesigned for several years, as the car harkens back to an era when cars were larger and more powerful. There is no doubting that the Impala is a legend, as it has been on the road for over fifty years, but this model does not reflect the car’s heritage. While it may lack the contemporary styling of other domestic full-size cars, the Impala still carries on the Chevrolet full-size sedan category. The 2013 Chevrolet Impala is available in three trims: the LS, LT, and LTZ. Prospective buyers should not be deterred by the hefty base price. Not only does the LS model come with a large number of standard features, but Chevrolet is likely to apply heavy discounts with the recognition that the car will be completely redesigned for the 2014 model year.
