2002 IMPALA: THE CAR YOU'LL LOVE TO DRIVE

2002 Chevrolet Impala
The Impala nameplate is the best-selling passenger car in Chevrolet history. Throughout the years customers have embraced the ride, handling, style and value of the Impala. In the early months of 2001, Impala reprised that popularity with record-setting monthly sales. In 2002, Chevrolet will continue its great heritage with new standard amenities and a sport appearance package, which will be unveiled during an Olympic Torch Relay run.

'The 2002 Impala builds on the heritage of a great car,' said Don Parkinson, Impala brand manager. 'Impala sales are strong – currently among the top 10 best-selling passenger cars. Since its introduction, Americans have shown they continue to love Impala. It's just plain fun to drive.'

New amenities for 2002

Driver and front passenger dual temperature controls allow greater comfort, and will now be standard on all Impalas. Also standard on all models is AM/FM stereo with cassette and Radio Data System (RDS). The RDS-capable stereo may be programmed to interrupt a cassette or CD with important traffic bulletins or emergency weather reports. A new premium sound system delivers enhanced quality with fatigue-free sound reproduction.

Impala has new features that enhance the safety and comfort of the vehicle's passengers. The LATCH (Lower Anchorages and Top tethers for Children) system is standardized and allows child seat use without the vehicle's safety belts, making installing child safety seats easier.

A new leather accent bench seat is available on the LS model.

Two exterior colors are also introduced: Bright Red and Medium Green Pearl.

Smooth V6 performance

Impala has the highest fuel economy of any V6 in the industry, coupled with solid performance (0-60 mph in 9.1 seconds in the LS).

Impala owes its rigidity and stiffness, quiet ride and terrific suspension to a carefully engineered chassis and body architecture. An extruded aluminum engine cradle – a first for mass production – helps isolate engine noise and vibration.

Two dependable engines – the 3400 V6 and the award-winning 3800 V6 – power the impressive ride. The 3400 V6 provides 180 horsepower and 205 lb-ft of torque, while the 3800 V6 puts out 200 hp and 225 lb-ft of torque.

Roominess and comfort

The 2002 Impala offers unparalleled large car room with midsize exterior proportions. The base model has room for six passengers and 18.6 cubic feet of trunk space.

The Impala Sedan comes well equipped with auxiliary lighting in the glove box and trunk, electric rear window defogger, delayed exit/entry lighting, and intermittent variable-speed windshield wipers. Impala LS has a long list of standard features, including passenger assist grips, a trunk cargo net, split-folding rear seat and cruise control.

Safety and security

The Impala has a frontal rating of 5 stars on the driver's side and five stars on the passenger's side. The Impala has a side impact rating of 4 stars on the driver's side and four stars on the passenger's side. Impala has met 2003 Federal head impact criteria since its introduction.

More than 100 standard safety and security features make Impala a worry-free car to drive. Impala LS features a driver's side-impact air bag, remote keyless entry, traction control, tire inflation monitoring system and antilock brakes, all Optional on Impala Sedan.

Standard features on all models include passive theft-deterrent system, battery rundown protection and daytime running lamps. In addition, a 'limp home' mode allows the car to be driven to a nearby service station even after a complete loss of coolant.

Sport appearance package/Torchbearers lead vehicle

To honor the Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games, Chevrolet will offer a special sport appearance package for the Impala. The package is also on vehicles that will lead the Olympic Torchbearers, and will travel through 125 Ú.S. cities in 65 days.

The special package includes specific wheels and rear taillamps; a new fascia; 16-inch pace car aluminum wheels; interior appointments; and a special gauge package. The vehicle leading the Olympic Torchbearers will be monochromatic black, however, retail vehicles will be available in selected colors.
