Impala Police performance


The Impala Police is powered by the LFX-code 3.6L V-6, which is rated at 302-horsepower (225 kW). It is a 60-degree design, with the cylinder block and cylinder heads cast in aluminum for low weight. A forged steel crankshaft provides optimal strength in the bottom end, while the cylinder heads include four valves per cylinder, with a dual overhead camshaft design incorporating infinitely variable cam phasing.

Additionally, optimized-flow fuel injectors and the integrated exhaust manifolds/cylinder heads promote lower emissions. The LFX's composite intake manifold also has a comparatively small radiated surface area to help it maintain excellent noise and vibration characteristics that are comparable to an aluminum manifold.

The 3.6L engine is backed by a six-speed automatic transmission that is performance-calibrated for police duty.

Additional powertrain and vehicle system features include:
• 2.44 axle ratio
• 170-amp high-output alternator
• Engine oil, transmission and power steering coolers
• Seventeen-inch wheels with Goodyear P235/55R17 W rated tires.

Optimal vehicle handling is assured by Impala's four-wheel independent suspension. It features reinforced front struts, a reinforced aluminum engine cradle and heavy-duty front and rear stabilizer bars. The Impala Police car is equipped with four-wheel disc brakes with police-calibrated antilock and heavy-duty front brake pads.

StabiliTrak electronic stability control is standard and includes performance mode and traction control.
