2019 Chevrolet Impala
We expect the Chevrolet Impala to receive a few minor changes and updates for the 2019 model year, which could be the last or second-to-last model year of the current, tenth-generation Impala as the next Impala is expected for the 2020-2021 model years.
Following is speculative and unconfirmed information about the 2019 Chevrolet Impala. This page is a continuous work-in-progress and will be updated on a regular basis as we await official details from General Motors and Chevrolet.
If you notice any inaccuracies about the information provided, or have edits to suggest, please let us know here.
Following are our expectations of the 2019 Chevy Impala:
- Minor changes to features/equipment group structure
- One or two new exterior colors
- One or two new interior color combinations
- Introduction of all-new MyLink infotainment system
- No changes to powertrain, or possible introduction of new 3.6L V-6 LGX engine and new GM 9-speed automatic transmission
The 2019 Chevy Impala continues to be offered as a full-size four-door sedan.
Like all tenth-generation units of the Chevrolet Impala, the 2018 Impala continues to ride on a long-wheelbase variant of the GM Epsilon II platform called Super Epsilon. The architecture is shared with the second-generation Buick LaCrosse and first-generation Cadillac XTS. A short wheelbase of the Epsilon architecture underpinned the eighth-generation Chevrolet Malibu and fifth-generation Buick Regal.
The 2019 Chevy Impala is assembled at the following two plants for global markets:
- GM Detroit-Hamtramck factory in Detroit, Michigan USA (GM USA)
- GM Oshawa factory in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada (GM Canada)
We expect the 2019 Impala to follow the regular GM model year rollover sequence, and be available for purchase at dealers by the third quarter of the 2018 calendar year.
We expect that the tenth-generation Impala will stick around for the 2019 and 2020 model years. After that, we expect the full-size sedan to be replaced with an all-new, next Impala riding on the GM E2 platform shared with the third-generation Buick LaCrosse. However, certain comments by GM executives have recently put the Impala’s future into question.
