It’s pretty much a universally-agreed-upon fact that Chevy has designed a home run with the 2014 Impala. But the range-topping Chevy will not offer all-wheel drive when it hits the streets a year from now. And that’s a shame, given that its most direct competitors from Ford (Taurus), Chrysler (300), and Toyota (Avalon) offer AWD as an option.
And it’s an even bigger shame when we consider the fact that the Impala’s Epsilon II platform fully supports the ability to be driven by all four wheels, as evidenced by its platform-mate, the Cadillac XTS and the (smaller) Buick LaCrosse. Hence our question: is Chevy making a mistake by not offering AWD on the new Impala?
