Chevrolet’s Impala will see a few welcome updates for the 2012 model year, but all of the emphasis has been on the car’s new (and standard) 3.6-liter V6 engine that pushes north of 300 horsepower. We should also point out that other changes are in store as well, just not nearly as major as the new LFX V6.
Aside from the new engine, minor (and we mean minor) changes are in store for the exterior. What we will see going forward is a new mesh grille design that replaces the horizontal slat grill (photoed above), while 16-inch aluminum wheels will become standard equipment. Inside, the cabin stays the same but Bluetooth becomes standard on retail models (fleet models have the option of Bluetooth).
Here are some photos for your perusal. We know, we know — she’s a looker!
