New for 2019

The Chevrolet Impala will be discontinued when U.S. production ends in June of 2019. No significant updates were made for the 2019 model year.

Trim Levels

The Impala is Chevrolet's largest sedan that slots above the smaller Cruze (also discontinued for 2019) and Malibu sedans.

2019 Impala LS: The base LS model comes standard with 18-inch steel wheels, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, three USB ports, a 4.2-inch instrument cluster display, eight-way power seats, a proximity key with push-start ignition, and OnStar capability.

2019 Impala LT: The LT adds 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, and remote engine start.

2019 Impala Premier: Building off the LT trim, the top Premier trim adds the upgraded V-6 engine, 19-inch wheels, perforated leather seating, a Bose audio system, a navigation system, rear parking sensors, an eight-way power passengers seat, heated front seats, HID headlights, a dual-outlet exhaust, wireless phone charging, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2019 Impala's base engine is a 2.5-liter I-4 that produces 197 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque and delivers an EPA-rated 22/29 mpg city/highway. The optional 3.5-liter V-6 churns out 305 hp and 264 lb-ft and is rated at 19/28 mpg. Both engines are backed by a six-speed automatic that routes power to the front wheels. During Motor Trend testing, the Impala V-6 hit 60 mph in 6.3 seconds and stopped from 60 mph in 118 feet.

Safety

The 2019 Chevrolet Impala received the NHTSA's highest overall safety rating of five stars. In IIHS testing, the Impala received the second-highest score of Acceptable for the small overlap front driver side crash test and the highest rating of Good for the other crash tests. The highest rating of Superior was given for the front crash prevention test because the sedan avoided a 12-mph collision, and reduced the speed of 25-mph collision by 10 mph thanks to the optional automatic emergency braking system.

Driver assist features for the 2019 Impala are optional. Rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change alert are found in the Driver Confidence package and standard on the Premier trim. The Premier Confidence package (only available on the Premier trim) includes forward collision alert, lane departure alert, emergency automatic braking, and adaptive cruise control.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

The Chevrolet Impala can hold 18.8 cubic feet of cargo in its trunk and front and rear seat legroom is 45.8 inches and 39.8 inches, respectively.

Technology

The Impala comes standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, a 4.2-inch instrument panel display, three USB ports, a six-speaker audio system, and OnStar functionality. An 11-speaker Bose audio system, a navigation system, and wireless phone charging are standard on the Premier trim and optional on the LT trim (except for wireless charging).

What We Think

In a First Test review of the 2016 Chevrolet Impala (the same vehicle as the 2019 model), the large sedan performed well at the track but on the street, the docile V-6 only comes to life once you dig into the throttle. But the relaxed engine/transmission tuning results in good fuel economy. The Impala handles well considering its size, the suspension does a good job controlling body motions and provides a comfortable ride. The front seats are cushy, the large cabin is quiet, and cargo space is good. We concluded our review by saying: "Those whose idea of driving nirvana includes a big, road-smothering American sedan and whose hearts don't pine for rear-wheel drive will be more than pleased."
