U.S News & World Report has published its 2020 Best Cars for the Money list, with the 2020 Chevrolet Impala recognized in the Best Large Car for the Money category.
“The cars, SUVs, and minivans that earned a U.S. News Best Cars for the Money award represent the best combination of quality and value in each of their respective classes,” U.S. News says.
The award winners were selected based on the overall score they received in U.S. News car rankings, as determined by reliability data, safety data, and reviews. Each entrant’s value was determined by the five-year total ownership costs as reported by Vincentric, and real transaction prices from TrueCar.
“A big, comfortable car does not have to break the bank, and the 2020 Chevrolet Impala proves this with its competitive starting price,” U.S. News writes.
The outlet highlights the Impala’s “strong” naturally aspirated 3.6L LFX V6 engine, which spins out 305 horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels by way of the M7W six-speed automatic transmission.
U.S. News also said the 2020 Chevrolet Impala provides “a serene driving experience, with an agreeable ride and controlled handling,” while also highlighting the sedan’s spacious seating and raft of infotainment features, such as a Wi-Fi hotspot, eight-inch touchscreen, and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Unfortunately, Chevrolet Impala production is set to end next month, per a memo distributed to employees at the GM Detroit-Hamtramck facility. Currently in its tenth generation, this isn’t the first time the Chevrolet Impala nameplate has been put on a shelf. Nevertheless, customers will continue to be able to buy the 2020 Chevrolet Impala for some time to come, as inventory will remain available at dealers around the nation even after production ceases.
