Following a special launch event for the media in Dubai last week, the 2014 Chevy Impala is officially set to go on sale in the Middle East in June.
“Chevrolet has historically dominated the full-size sedan segment. I am confident with the new Impala, we will recapture the number one spot,” said President and Managing Director of General Motors Middle East Operations John Stadwick.
Outside of the new Impala’s beautiful styling, high-tech cabin with the next-generation MyLink infotainment system, and confident driving experience, its 3.6 liter V6 LFX engine will be the most powerful naturally-aspirated engine in the segment — making 305 horsepower (227 Kw) and 356 Nm (262 lb-ft) of torque, while attaining 8.1L/100km (29.04 mpg) highway fuel economy.
“The 2014 Impala will not only further strengthen Chevrolet’s reputation in the region but also set a new benchmark for efficiency, refinement, infotainment and driving confidence,” added Stadwick.
Built in Detroit-Hamtramck, Michigan and Oshawa, Ontario, the full-size Super Epsilon-based 2014 Impala will be offered in LS, LT and LTZ trim levels in the region. The new flagship sedan will carry a starting price of AED 105,000 ($28,586) for the LS and AED 129,000 ($35,120) for the LTZ model in the United Arab Emirates. Beyond the new tenth-generation Impala, Chevrolet also offers the midsize Malibu and full-size Zeta-based Caprice (aka Holden Caprice) in the region.
