2013 Impala

I saw what I think was a 2013 or 2014 Impala driving around today. I was really kind of impressed with the looks. I just thought I would post to see what others think of it I didn't see any other threads about it. I know almost anything would be an improvement over the current car, but this new one is something I may have to look at. I am probably going to be in the market of a large 4 door within the next year. Does anyone know when its supposed to go on the market? So now its just a question of Chevy or Dodge.

You would have seen a 2013 impala. The 2014s haven't been released yet. I think they are supposed to be released mid 2013. The 2012-13 impalas have the new 3.6L v6 that is shared with the camaro, and a 6 speed auto instead of the weak 4 speeds in the 2006-11 models. It is a much better powertrain.

But if you can wait a year, hang on for the new 2014 impala. The body styling is incredible, and it also offers a couple four cylinder options that get great gas mileage, or the current v6 that kicks major ass.

^Unless he's in MI he might have seen a test car. Some people on GMI have seen them. Which one below did it look like?

I really like the front end on the new ones, but the rear end is missing something - maybe the spoiler...

It was for sure the new one 2014 I guess it is. There is no way someone could mistake it for that ridiculous one that is out now. This is one I am really going to need to take a look at. Does anyone know if it will be without those silly emblems on the C piller?

Where are you located? And I believe it will have them, but 15 mins and that DIY I posted you can take them off to sell.

Michigan or someplace else. Test cars are often driven by employees all over the country for one reason or another

What you saw was a 2014 Impala which is the all new body style. The 2013 Impala was the same body as the 2006. For 2012/2013 models all Impala's get a 3.6L v6 6 speed automatic that has 300 hp. 2006-2011 Impala used 4 speed automatics being either a 3500 v6, 3900 v6, or 5.3l v8 on the SS (2006-2009). That engine (3.6L v6) is carried over to the 2014 Impala on the higher level trims. The lower level trims have 4 cylinder 6 speed automatics, choice of 2. If you saw a 2013 Impala you wouldn't even no you saw one or really care. Not sure why other people think you can't buy a 2014 Impala yet. The 2014 Impala went on sale to the public very late March, early April 2013.

I'm sure they didn't think he saw one cause this thread is over a year old. at the time of the first post, they weren't out.
