The all-new Impala and facelifted Traverse are ready to make their debut at the New York Auto Show.
With the release of these teaser shots, Chevrolet has announced that the next-gen 2014 Impala sedan and a facelifted 2013 Traverse will be heading to the New York Auto Show. There are no specific details about either of the models, but the all-new Impala, the 10th generation since 1958, is expected to get a dramatic new look. From the spy shots we've seen over the past months, we know it will share its so-called Premium Epsilon II platform with the 2012 Cadillac XTS.
From the snap-shot of the C-pillar we can already see the Impala looking more upscale, and the hope is the car will shake its reputation for being a bland rental car. Under the hood, there'll be a choice of GM's eAssist mild- hybrid powertrain, turbo-four cylinder and 300hp 3.6-liter V6. The Impala will also be FWD like the Caddy, while AWD should also be available. With respect to the 2013 Traverse, Chevrolet is simply refreshing the crossover, giving it a nicer interior and some new safety features including a front center air bag.
From the released image, we can see a two-tone Malibu-style dash with French stitching and Chevy's MyLink infotainment system. For an idea of what to expect, check out the Traverse's GMC-badged sibling, the updated 2013 GMC Acadia, revealed at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show last month. At the New York Auto Show, Chevrolet will also display the new Malibu Eco, Spark mini car, Tru 140S and Code 130R concepts and the Corvette 427 Convertible with a 60th Anniversary package.
