Powertrain Performance and Fuel Economy
No matter which engine option you choose to have fitted under the hood of your Chevy Impala, you can look forward to a standard six-speed automatic transmission and standard front-wheel drive. Here’s a look at the number and performance technologies on each of the three engine options:
- 2.5L I-4: Standard on all versions of the Impala except the top-of-the-line Premier trim, this 2.5L four-cylinder engine produces a total output of 196 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. This engine utilizes auto stop/start technology and precise engineering to help it achieve up to an EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway and 22 mpg city.
- 3.6L V6: Standard on the Premier trim and available on the LS and LT models is a 3.6L V6 engine with Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing (VVT) technologies. Total output on this model is an inspired 305 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque. In spite of its robust output, it’s still capable of getting an EPA-estimated 28 mpg highway and 18 mpg city.
- CNG Engine: For those looking for a sedan that runs on an alternative energy source, there’s also a version of the Impala that gets its power from a different version of the V6 engine that can run on both gasoline and compressed natural gas (CNG). The CNG model comes with a CNG tank that holds 7.7 gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE). When running on gasoline, this engine makes 260 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque, and gets an EPA-estimated 25 mpg highway and 17 mpg city.
