The new rear-wheel drive SS sports sedan won’t be heading to Canada, but another new Chevrolet sedan will, which is only natural since the 2014 Impala is built at GM’s Oshawa, Ontario factory as well as at the Detroit-Hamtramck, Michigan, assembly plant.
The new generation of the Impala will reach Canadian dealerships this spring with a starting price of $28,445, which GM says is “just $145 more than the 2013 Impala it replaces”, but conveniently forgets to mention in the same sentence that whereas the base version of the 2014 model features a 195hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, the outgoing 2013 model is fitted with a 300-horsepower 3.6-liter V6.
If you want a V6, the 305hp version of the 2014 Impala has an MSRP of $32,945 for the LT and $39,645 for the better equipped LTZ. Besides the base $28,445 LS, other trim grades available for the 2.5-liter engine are the $31,445 LT and $36,445 LTZ. Destination charge on all models is $1,550 (*). GM said pricing for the third engine option, the 2.4-liter gasoline unit with eAssist, will be announced at a later date.
In the U.S., the 2.5L Impala LS starts from $27,535 and the 3.6L LT from $30,760, with both prices including destination charges.
