The 2017 model year marks the fourth year of the current-, tenth-generation Chevrolet Impala on the market. The new model year brings several minor changes and updates.
The most notable change to the 2017 Impala is that the LTZ trim has been renamed to Premier, as per Chevy’s plan to replace LTZ with Premier across the lineup. But despite the name change, the 2017 Chevy Impala continues to be offered in three models, just like the 2016 model it replaces:
- LS (1GX69)
- LT (1GY69)
- Premier (1GZ69)
One exterior color — Citron Green Metallic — is deleted, while two new ones — Arctic Blue Metallic and Pepperdust Metallic — are added. Plus, the Jet Black/Wheat interior replaces Jet Black/Mojave. The new interior color combo is available exclusively on LT and Premier trims and is pegged for late availability.
Finally, the LT equipment group gets streamlined from three trims for 2016 (1LT, 2LT, 3LT/CNG) to:
- 1LT with the 2.5L 4 cylinder engine standard and available 3.6L V6 LFX engine, and
- 3LT/CNG with the 3.6L V6 LFR engine
There’s also a note about cyber security being added to the vehicle, but we’re not quite certain what that means. We’ve reached out to Chevrolet for comment and will update this article when we hear back.
