Very roomy and smooth I love it from the color to the interior I’m very impressed the test drive sold me for real plus the leg room I’m 6’5 by the way

should not have quit making them

have had major issues with 4 cylinder engines would only buy one with 6 cylinder. forward traction is terrible (rain, snow, etc. ) if it were built with all wheel drive it would be perfect. I still feel it is an incredible value for the price.

Pretty soon to tell, but so far I love this car

I purchased this car at Mukwanago Lynch. Excellent car, very happy, very affordable as a used car. I would recommend this car to anyone. Good gas mileage, comfort, and performance as well as a very good looking car.

2018 Chevrolet Impala Overview


The 2018 Chevrolet Impala is a full-size family sedan that seat 5 passengers. It competes with the Ford Taurus, Chrysler 300, and Toyota Avalon. This year, it remains largely unchanged.

Three trims are available: the LS, LT, and Premier.


The Impala has conventional styling for a family sedan. The front grille and headlights align to create a long, singular body line that stretches across the Impala. Other muscular lines can be found at the lower half of the doors and rear fenders. Standard features include power side mirrors and 18-inch wheels. A power moonroof, HID headlights, LED daytime running lamps, heated side mirrors, a rear spoiler, a dual-pipe exhaust system, and larger 19-, and 20-inch aluminum wheels are available as well.

Under the Hood
Powering the Impala is a standard 197-hp, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. A more powerful 305-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 is available as well. Fuel economy for the 4-cylinder model is an EPA-estimated 22/30 mpg city/highway. It lowers to a 19/28 mpg rating for the V-6 model.

Inside, the Impala has a standard cloth interior with front bucket seats and a 40/20/40 split-folding rear seat. The center stack features a standard Chevrolet MyLink multimedia system with an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, voice recognition, and OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot. It can be upgraded with an integrated navigation system and a Bose premium audio system. Standard features include power windows/locks, power front seats, a memory seat, air conditioning, cruise control, and remote keyless entry. Leather upholstery, an automatic dimming rearview mirror, dual-zone automatic climate control, an automatic tilt/telescoping steering wheel, power/heated front seats, ventilated front seats, remote vehicle start, and push-button start are also available.

The Impala earned a full 5-star overall crash test safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Standard features include an advanced air bag system, antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, and a tire pressure monitoring system. OnStar connected services for emergencies, security, and diagnostics purposes (subscription required) are available. Other optional features include a backup camera, a blindspot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert, rear park assist, lane departure warning, and forward collision alert.
