The Chevy Impala is a true classic. Dating back to the 1950s, the Impala remains Chevy's flagship sedan. While the car has gone through a massive evolution over the years, it remains one of the best selling vehicles in the country. So if you've been shopping for a family sedan that offers a powerful engine and plenty of cargo space, few other cars on the market can check off these boxes. With several trim selections to choose from and luxury touches throughout, the 2020 Chevy Impala is the car that turns heads without setting you back.
When shopping for the 2020 Chevy Impala, there are two trims to choose from (each of which comes with several upgrade options so you can better customize each of the trims). Each of these trims will have an impact on the initial MSRP. For the base Chevy Impala, which is the LT, the starting MSRP is $31,620.
The second trim is the Premier. This trim has a starting MSRP of $36,720. Both of the trims use the same drivetrain, powertrain, and transmission type.
You will find the same engine option in both trims. This is a 3.6L V6 that produces 305 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque. The V6 is a Flex Flue based engine, so you can use both gas and ethanol options. Ethanol is a cleaner-burning fuel, although it does burn faster, so when you use it, you won't make the most out of your fuel efficiency. It's simply a secondary option that can make things a bit easier when traveling.
The fuel tank holds an estimated 18.5 gallons of fuel, which is larger than many other mid-size sedans on the market. You'll also experience a fuel economy of around 18 miles per gallon in the city and up to 28 miles per gallon on the highway (you will see the MPG bump up to 19 in the city when going with the entry trim due to weighing less).
Both of the trims come with similar safety features. On the base trim, the Chevy Impala comes with a driver, passenger, front side, knee airbags, and rear side airbags (in total throughout the cabin, the sedan has ten airbags). It also features four-wheel ABS and disc brakes, plus brake assist, electronic stability control, traction control, child safety locks, daytime running lights, and integrated turn signal mirrors. Optional features include blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alert.
On the upgraded trim, the Premier, you receive the same standard safety features, plus blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alert. Lane departure warning comes as an additional option to consider.
The 2020 Chevy Impala comes loaded with several convenience features, all of which are designed to make your ride more comfortable and less stressful. We all know how strenuous winter driving through southern Ohio can be, so the Impala aims at making it a bit easier.
For starters, the basic trim comes with your standard alarm, plus cruise control, remote engine start (which is great on those cold days and you want to warm the car up before hopping into the car), keyless start, heated mirrors to help keep snow and condensation from building up, a back-up camera, auto-off headlights (so no more forgetting to turn your lights off and going back to a dead battery), plus keyless entry and power mirrors.
The Premier trim comes with all of the same features you'll find in the base model. Additionally, the Premier trim also comes with a universal garage door opener, rear parking aid, plus HID headlights. There are also several optional features you may want to consider, depending on your personal driving needs. This includes adaptive cruise control, heated steering wheel, electrochromic rearview mirror, and mirror memory.
Adaptive cruise control is an exceptional feature you may want to look further into. This particular feature can detect not only the vehicles around you but the changing speed limit of where you are driving. If you've used traditional cruise control in the past, you know what it's like to constantly take it off and adjust speeds based on traffic around you. With adaptive cruise control, the Chevy Impala will do this for you. This way, there's no hard breaking for the person who doesn't realize slow traffic is supposed to be in the right lane, or for the person merging who just doesn't want to get up to the speed limit.
Both the Chevy Impala LT and the Premier trims come loaded with all kinds of entertainment features and power options for your portable equipment. On the LT trim, the vehicle comes with a 12-volt power outlet, which is great when you need to physically plug something in. It has a 6-speaker system controlled by an 8-inch color touchscreen display (running the Chevrolet Connected Access service), a USB port located in the console, Bluetooth pairing, an AUX port, SiriusXM Radio (plus a free three-month trial subscription), AM/FM stereo, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The Wi-Fi hotspot allows you to connect to your favorite streaming apps while on the road, or when you need to quickly calm the kids and keep them from kicking the back of your seat, hand them a tablet running Netflix, Disney+, or one of their favorite shows.
The Premier trim takes the tech features a step further. You'll receive the same AM/FM stereo, AUX port, smart device integration via Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi hotspot, but it has a Bose Centerpoint surround-sound audio system, which utilizes 11 speakers positioned throughout the cabin to give you the best audio listening experience possible. It also upgrades the 8-inch touchscreen to include navigation using the Chevrolet Infotainment System.
Of note, with the Wi-Fi hotspot, you will need to activate a data package, similar to what you would do when adding a data package to a portable tablet. This way, you can connect all your external devices to Wi-Fi without hoping you have a clear data signal while traveling. Because we all know, when traveling through some of those dead zones between Columbus, Dayton, and even into Kentucky, it can be a bit iffy with the data connection (especially when heading south and rounding the mountains). With the in-cabin Wi-Fi, you'll never have to deal with that particular issue again.
Your Chevy Impala will come with all kinds of features designed to make your drive that much more comfortable. But there are also several exterior features you may want to consider. Each of these features allows you to perfectly customize your 2020 Chevy Impala. You do have a rear spoiler option, and you can opt for a sunroof, which is always a fan favorite. There is also a wheel locks option you may want to consider. This will swap out the regular nuts on your wheel, so instead, you need a special "key" to remove the wheels. This way, you'll provide yourself with a bit of extra protection.
The Impala also comes with a compact spare tire. This is something to look for when buying a new vehicle. Several other car manufacturers, in an effort to improve cargo space, have been removing the spare tire and instead offer a flat tire repair kit. Unless you're driving over a fine nail and can spot the air leak, tire repair kits typically are not all that helpful, and sometimes you just don't have the time to wait for a tow truck to take you to a service station (when you could have handled it yourself with a spare tire). With your Chevy Impala, you have the spare tire, so this isn't an issue.
