According to some sources, the refreshed 2018 Chevrolet Impala is likely to arrive sometime in the second half of 2017.
2018 Chevrolet Impala Design
The latest Impala boasts an exceptionally elegant exterior styling that stands out in its segment. Compared to the previous generation, it features a much more inspiring sheet metal. Some of the features that give it an elegant appearance include a long, sculpted hood and a swept-back roof. Rumor has it that the 2018 Chevrolet Impala could receive a minor facelift of its front end. Apart from slightly reshaped headlights and grille, it should benefit from a restyled front bumper.
Inside, the upcoming Impala will offer even more upscale materials and features than the outgoing model. Expect the perforated leather seats to become standard in the lower trims as well. When it comes to the rear passenger legroom and headroom, the Chevrolet future vehicles will be among class-leading models. Standard amenities will include OnStar 4G LTE connectivity and built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. Mid-grade LT trim will offer Chevrolet MyLink Radio with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility.

Just like its predecessor, the 2018 Chevrolet Impala will have two powertrains at its disposal. Base models will use a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that gives 197 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. The more powerful option will come as a 3.6-liter V6 that cranks out 305 ponies and 264 lb-ft of twist. Both engines will be paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.
