Chevy will kill off most of its car lineup in the near future, but the Impala is safe, at least for now. The company announced that it will continue making the car until at least 2020. We expect to see the new models with minor changes at best, which may include an updated infotainment unit.
The Impala’s advanced safety features are held back to higher trims and options packages and include lane departure warnings, forward collision warnings, and rear cross-traffic alerts. We should continue to see the same two engine choices that are under the hood of 2019 models: a 3.6-liter V6 and a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.
The overall design of the car is expected to remain unchanged for 2020, inside and out, though Chevy may slide in a few new color choices. The Impala’s future after 2020 is shaky, as the company could pull the plug on production at any time, as it did with the Cruze in 2019.
For the time being, the Impala competes against the Ford Taurus, Toyota Avalon, and Buick Lacrosse. The 2020 Impala should start around $28,895.
