thweepz: I noticed the 4/cylinder 2014 has shorter gears. Why does Chevy use such
mark clear: about 6.2 with TC on. Like 7 without.Loss of traction killed it.Not bad
though.Sounds pretty good for a six
373axle: That's pretty fast
zeusl074: I think the 5.3 was a better motor for the Impala SS due to the broader
power band. Peak power is fine for top speed, but you want that broad power
band for acceleration.
Hallphamazing305: @ MPGomatic why there is no red line in the tachometer of the 14 Impala I
see that in the Big GM truck too like the Tahoe, Suburban with no red line
mark in the tachometer?
John A: I counted about 7 seconds
David Caudill: Kia sucks
Jerrod Spring: 6.16, 6.75
David Vanderwaal: Kia cadenza is still better. Not a old boring dash layout and it has
stunning looks! The impala doesn't even have LED tail lights that's cheap
Joshua Johnson: fast car, I see the police using these now.
David Caudill: Hay Kia the worst brand I can think of in the car industry so is the
brother hondia at least chevy is doing something with trucks and cars and
Nela Zakula: Its time for 1080 HD its 2013!!! Plz
Fordguy1997: @mpgomatic It would be nice if you included the time in the 0-60 runs :)
knightrider1545: Most powerful NA FWD sedan currently produced.
RyanAudi39: I love GM......
Jay mans: How do you like the car so far?
Marco Driver: nice acceleration
adam rashid: good test
David Caudill: Chevy rules
Anthony Alaniz: 2014 Impala? Da! Loads of views on this one from Europe over the weekend
Felix Wiesner: How comes GM still builds cars with such antiquated gearboxes?
MPGomatic: Everything would need to be cleared with the manufacturers.
Scott Hellickson: I bought the 2LTZ in Champagne Silver almost 2 months ago and I absolutely
love it. I once drove a 2012 Impala LT as a rental while my old car was
getting body work done (someone slid into it on a snowy day while it was
parked!). I really do find the difference to be almost breathtaking,
really. Handling is *vastly* better, by a long shot. I did not, at all,
like anything about the handling or steering of that 2012 Impala.
Transmission objectively feels faster to me, too.
Slash396: What are you using to time? It was around 5.9-6.0.
Dest Droid: I think these videos would improve if they had the times actually in them
at the end of the run.
Steve Miller: A 6 speed automatic is far from antiquated!
Justin Humenik: are you sure i have a 2013 buick lacrosse and it had the same V6 as this
car and i get 20.5 average and i'm not a hard driver. I rented a malibu
turbo on a trip and i got 24.3 average. So the turbo is more efficient.
Plus it doesn't require premium gas.
Trance88: Dayum! That thing has some punch! Anything under 9 seconds seems pretty
quick to me, so this is quite good.
Jimmy Kraktov: That's the same size engine I had in my '62 Falcon. It had a whopping 85
HP. I never 'cut loose' with that monster but if I had 0-60 would have been
around the half-minute mark and the tappet noise would have hurt my ears :~)
knightrider1545: What engine?
knightrider1545: Sounds a bit like a touring car at the end.
jsnevels2: No Not Really. No Other 6sp Auto In It's Class Hits 70mph In The 2nd Gear.
Naw I Rather Keep Driving My Altima. :) My 4sp Auto Is Geared For Economy
And It Doesn't Hit 70mph In The 2nd Gear Or Hit 42 Mph In 1st.
Zack Anderson: A 6 speed and it hits 70 in 2nd gear? Damn.
Eli0829: 300lbs heavier than the 12-13 Impala and has the same drive train... the 14
is easier on the eyes though
aquaticko: Don't know why it seems like GM's stopped labeling redlines in their newest
vehicles. Not a big deal in an automatic car, but it's nice to know when a
gear change at full-throttle's coming.
josh1303: I think ppl liked the old one better LOL.
TheLBCSublime: oh yeah, in 1993 this thing would have been considered a super-car sedan lol
MPGomatic: I wish. I might be able to make one ... before they shut me down ... =)
SwPiotrek: I like this car.
Cdubp01: Lol. When your balls to the wall it hits 40 something in first. Drive it
normally and its plenty economic. I average around 26mph in my 2012 impala
(same drivetrain) and Im pretty heavy footed.
jsnevels2: Yes , I Really Expected 1st Gear To Go About 30 or 35mph Then 2nd To Be
Around 55-60 !
Zack Anderson: It has a 6-speed and is at 70mph after 2nd? That thing could go on forever.
Rtvoll: Holy crap! 6 seconds flat. For a 3855 lbs sedan this thing seriously hauls
ass! I am defiantly going to get one. Even if It takes me years it will be
Scott Hellickson: It feels a lot better. The 2014 makes 305/264 @ 6800/5200, while the
2012/13 is 300/262 @ 6500/5300. The axle ratio increased from 2.44 on the
2013 to 2.77 on the 2014. It certainly is not a carbon copy from the old
one in certain ways. In everyday driving, it certainly does not appear to
lack any power whatsoever. A vast difference, as you can imagine! The
biggest change, by a long shot, is the improved handling, however.
Patrick Hightower: But for some reason! here in Tx, the car is actually not selling as good as
i would expect!!
Americanmuscle1968: Damn! For a car that size it sure has one potent V6 if it can haul it that
fe1138lix: Looks like a nice car for the price!
splewy: High legacy costs and a poor business strategy that involved too many
unappealing and redundant products is why GM went bankrupt. It had nothing
to do with recalls. Times have changed. Some cars are still more reliable
than others, but no company makes truly bad cars anymore. This idea that
all American brand cars are guaranteed to be plagued with problems, is
outdated, and was mainly based on conjecture in the first place.
knightrider1545: Funny, last gen had 300 hp 5.3, this gen has 303 hp 3.6, lol.
