The new 2015 Chevy Impala SS is a new model that is based more on the Australian Commodore rather than the current Impala. It will be faster, it will have much better handling at it will also have a very competitive price in order to compete with other super sedans. The base Chevy Impala SS 2015 version comes with $45,745 base price, which means it’s only around 10.000$ more than the normal Impala.
2015 Chevy Impala SS Redesign
Because the 2015 Chevy Impala SS is based on the new Commodore it features similar styling but with redesigned front and rear bumpers as well as new headlights and tail lights and also a brand new grille that fits in the general Chevrolet design scheme. As you would expect, the interior is well made, the standard cloth upholstery is quite good and nice to the touch and the equipment level is adequate.
For a bit more money, the top of the range model features satellite navigation with a premium audio system, fully electric and ventilated seats both in the front and back and also a fully leather interior. Also, even the base model features an automatic climate control system that can be upgraded to a dual zone climate control. The Chevy Impala SS 2015 is available in ten different colors: Alchemy Purple Metallic, Heron White Metallic, Jungle Green Metallic, Mystic Green Metallic, Perfect Blue Metallic, Phantom Black Metallic, Red Hot 2, Regal Peacock Green Metallic, Silver Ice Metallic and Some Like It Hot Red Metallic.
2015 Chevy Impala SS Specs, MPG
While the normal Impala features either a 4 cylinder engine or a V6 the new 2015 Chevy Impala SS will get the new alloy 6.2 liter V8. This particular unit will provide around 420 horsepower and as much as 420 lb-ft of torque making it the most powerful Impala so far. This engine also receives the cylinder deactivation technology, so it will use very little fuel while cruising the motorways. Thanks to this and other improvements made to the exhaust, the car will be able to return around 18 MPG in the city and as much as 28 MPG on the open road.
There is only one 6-speed automatic gearbox available that has been carried over from the Australian Commodore. It is quite smooth, very responsive when you need to change gear manually and quite comfortable to use. The big surprise comes from where it sends the power. Unlike the other Impalas, the Chevy Impala SS 2015 is rear-wheel-drive which means it will drive much better than the front wheel drive model and it will also be faster. The car’s performance is also very good, being able to get from 0 to 60 MPH in less than 5 seconds while the top speed is in excess of 170 MPH!
