2011 Chevrolet Impala Overview
With plenty of versatility—whether it’s with efficient engine options, cargo capacity or trim levels with various amenities, the 2011 Chevrolet Impala full-size sedan is affordable, practical, and most importantly—enjoyable.
Under the long, curvy hood of the 2011 Chevrolet Impala is a standard 3.5-liter, 207-horsepower V-6 engine that now comes with flex-fuel capability (E85). If you have a need for more speed, a 3.9-liter, 230-horsepower V-6 engine is available. These engines are mated to a four-speed automatic transmission, and power is sent to the front wheels. This powertrain delivers 17-18 mpg in the city and 27-29 mpg on the highway, which is better than the Chrysler 300, and just a couple ticks behind the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.
Inside the 2011 Chevy Impala you will find copious amounts of space for both passengers and cargo. The Impala seats up to five passengers and features a rear flip-and-fold seat that extends the trunk, making 18.6 cubic feet of trunk space, which is larger than almost all competitors. The base LS model includes cloth seats, a one-touch power window for the driver, plus cruise control, dual zone climate control with air filtration, simulated wood trim, OnStar satellite communications, CD player and XM Satellite Radio.
The LT model features an optional power glass sunroof, power front passenger seat and heated front seats. The top of the line LTZ model blends in premium features such as leather seats, heated power seats up front, leather-wrapped steering wheel and an eight-speaker Bose audio system all come standard.
A big sedan is a safe place to be, especially when it is stuffed with dual front, front-side and two-row head airbags. Antilock brakes, plus traction and stability control systems, give you the four-appendage stability of a wild Impala on its home turf, and help keep you from the predatory jaws of a collision.
The 2011 Chevrolet is safe, versatile and efficient at an affordable price, making this full-size classic a must.
