A 3.6L V-6 DOHC direct injection engine wîth variable valve timing and E85 FlexFuel capability is standard on all Impala models. It is rated 300 horsepower (224 kW) and delivers an EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway. A six-speed automatic transmission also contributes to the Impala's fuel efficiency.
Chassis and suspension
The Impala chassis and suspension systems are tuned to provide refined ride and handling. The FE1/FE2 suspensions are standard on LS and LT models. The FE3 suspension is standard on LTZ.
A robust front-end structure provides a firmer foundation to help reduce noise, vibration and harshness, while also enhancing §teering and handling performance.
Impala's fully boxed upper frame rail assemblies have a wider, deeper and structurally stronger upper front tie bar. Stronger ties between the upper and lower rails stiffen the front structure for improved ride and handling and a large, lower front-of-dash panel. To reduce resonant sound, it is constructed of Quiet Steel laminated steel, which consists of sound-deadening material bonded between sheets of steel.
All Impala models feature a quiet, efficient power rack-and-pinion §teering system that optimizes internal flow of the hydraulic §teering fluid within the pump and reservoirs.
The front suspension features a MacPherson strut independent setup wîth gas-charged struts and a stabilizer bar. Tall jounce bumpers in the front suspension enhance stability and control. The rear suspension uses a trailing arm, tri-link setup wîth gas-charged struts and coil springs. A rear stabilizer bar is standard on all models.
Impala is equipped wîth a family of 16- and 17-inch wheels and tires. Impala LTZ is equipped wîth 18-inch wheels and tires.
Safety and crash-avoidance features
Impala provides the outstanding safety performance expected of a family sedan. (concept carz) The 2011 model achieved the federal government's top frontal crash test ratings of five stars. Impala is the only large sedan that includes OnStar, which can automatically send emergency help to a crash.
Safety begins wîth an enhanced structure that is designed to absorb crash energy and provide a protective 'safety cage' around occupants. Other features include:
• Six standard air bags include side curtain air bags, which provide head protection for outboard passengers in the event of a side-impact or rollover crash
• StabiliTrak electronic stability control system helps reduce the risk of rollover crashes by keeping the vehicle in the driver's intended path by applying throttle, braking or a combination of both
• Standard four-wheel-disc brake system featuring smooth, quiet operation, longer pad life and more resistance to brake pulsation
• Improved §teering control while braking due to standard anti-lock brakes. The system also includes Electronic Brake Force Distribution, which helps provide optimum braking regardless of load, traction or braking speed
• Pretensioners minimize forward movement during a collision, and are standard on the front safety belts. Load-limiting retractors cinch the belt more tightly
• Standard remote keyless entry system provides a second function for the red panic button. Drivers can use it to locate their cars without sounding the panic alarm.
Six months of OnStar Directions and Connections service is standard on Impala. OnStar is the global leading provider of connected safety, security and mobility solutions and advanced information technology.
OnStar's RemoteLink Mobile App allows smartphone users to control vehicle functions, access vehicle information and send directions directly to the vehicle. A new, opt-in service called FamilyLink allows subscribers to stay connected to loved ones by checking the location of their vehicle online or by signing up for vehicle location alerts.
Impala also features new OnStar button icons. Drivers will notice an updated look for the Hands-Free Calling button, blue OnStar button and red Emergency button.Source - Chevrolet
