    November 23, 2012

    The brand new 2014 Chevrolet Impala will begin at $27,535* (includes $810 destination charge), an increase of about $700 from the outgoing Impala.

    Chevrolet says the base price gets you a 2.5L four-cylinder engine LS model. If you want a higher trim model with the 2.5L four, be prepared to pay $29,785 for the LT and $34,555 for the range-topping LTZ.

    Wanting V6 power? You can get a 3.6L V6 on the LT model for $30,760, and the LTZ model for $36,580.

    Pricing for the e-Assist mild hybrid model hasn't been announced at this time.

    Chevrolet says the V6 model will be the first arrive at dealers sometime in early in the first quarter with the four-cylinder following close behind.

    Chevrolet Announces Pricing for the 2014 Impala

    New sedan offers added content and technology starting at $27,535

    DETROIT – The all-new 2014 Impala, Chevrolet’s flagship sedan, will go on sale this spring with a starting price of $27,535, including an $810 destination charge.

    Impala was America’s best-selling full-size sedan in 2011, with sales of more than 171,000, which made it one of the 10 best-selling cars in the United States

    “We’ll build on the success the Impala nameplate has generated over its history,” said Chris Perry, vice president, Chevrolet marketing. “We’ve added sophisticated design features, more technology and safety equipment, while conserving Impala’s current strengths like spaciousness and comfort.”

    Chevrolet’s latest MyLink radio debuts in the 2014 Impala. The in-vehicle entertainment system adds an eight-inch color display screen that is customizable. The system also adopts natural voice recognition – a first for Chevy.

    The 2014 Impala has several new features, including Adaptive Cruise Control and crash-avoidance technologies like Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert. Ten standard airbags are included as well – among the most in the segment.

    Three direct-injection engine choices will be available to customers: a 3.6L V-6, a newly designed 2.5L four-cylinder and a 2.4L four-cylinder with fuel-saving eAssist technology that is estimated to deliver 35 mpg. All engines are matched to a six-speed automatic transmission.

    The 2014 Impala will be offered in LS, LT and LTZ trim levels.

    The 3.6L, 305-horsepower-engine will come to market first, with a starting price of $30,760 for the LT and $36,580 for the LTZ, including destination charges.

    The 2.5L engine is priced as follows: $27,535 for the LS; $29,785 for the LT; $34,555 for the LTZ.

    Pricing for the 2.4L engine with eAssist will be announced later.

    The new Impala will be built in the Oshawa, Ontario, and Detroit-Hamtramck, Mich., assembly plants.

    This may be only $700 over the previous sticker, but it is about $4k - $5k over actual base transaction price. I'm sure Chevy expects volume to drop substantially.

    I wonder if the base LS will have body-color steelies with dogdish hubcaps, a single outside mirror, no exterior chrome except for nameplates, and a vinyl bench interior with AM radio?

    They already have stated so. They expect the volume car to be the Malibu now.

    In a way it is sad this kind of car is gone even though no one outside of taxi fleets bought them.

    Hmmm...hate to say it, but Chevy has kind of left me in the dust. The next Impala, while gorgeous, won't be the "value" that the current model is. I've got to cough up more than $30K for a V6?

    Sat in a Malibu Eco last weekend and it felt like a squeeze, especially in the rear--even when compared to our '07 (OK, we have a Maxx, but still). I was also astonished at the $30K + sticker on this Malibu.

    Another car I sat in last week was a '13 Sentra. Very nicely finished & equipped for $20K, with a lot more comfy interior than the Malibu. Uh-oh.

    The new Malibu is slow to grow on me. We even have a 08 and the rear leg room is so much more.

    I hate to say it but if the new Malibu is to be the new volume car GM had better jump on it now for a remake. I suspect when most of this car was done it would have been a class leader but much of this project sat on the shelf as GM calls it till it was reactivated after the bail out. In the mean time everyone else moved on.

    A fast redo like Honda just did on their car is in order. Not sure how much GM could add to the car to make a little more leg room.

    As far as the Malibu and Impala, IMO GM goofed on the Epsilon II wheelbases...don't know why there are so short in both SWB and LWB versions compared to the platforms they replaced. I assume the short wheelbases and narrowness is partially due to Epsilon II being a global platform.

    We should be so lucky...add a 5 speed manual & optional air conditioning to that list, please!

    The automakers have not introduced any economy specials during this interminable economic slowdown.

    I remember the Mopar "America" stripper specials, used to see a lot of those on the road. Come to think of it, they do have a special Caravan out now for a low, low price that has a variation of the America name, but I forget exactly what it's called. I think I posted a thread about it a few munts ago.

    Maybe we need more poorboy specials. I see no reason to be optimistic about the economy.

    The problem is with the way cars are built today it is cheaper to build them with more things vs building a lower number with less things.

    As crazy as it sounds in the big picture it is hard to build a cheap stipper car unless you have enough buyers willing to take large numbers.

    Today if someone is trying to save money they will buy a pick up or a Sonic. They will get the options and save money with size in cars.

    I agree the Malibu and Impala need a little size adjustment to match others in the maket.

    The Epsilon II just needs a little more length but it needs more width. The Malibu needs just a little more lenght. Overall both cars need more size between them. The Cruze is fine but the Malibu is too close in size.

    Agreed. The OEMs push the ideal that every car / every buyer needs big alloy rims & huge integral 'infotainment' systems & backup cameras, and it's just not as unilateral as they want everyone to believe. But the Marketing Mill works 24/7.

    I took a brief drive in a new Malibu Eco, and it is an upgrade from the current car. However, the lack of room in the back is almost inexcusable. The rear of the Buick Regal feels bigger, though on paper it's only slightly bigger. I find the rear of the Regal to be habitable, and the back of the Verano to be entirely too tight. The next generation of GM vehicles needs to have wider large cars and more legroom in the midsizers.

    Wow. Well said, both of youse...I really have lost interest in new cars. I've been chalking it up to my crabby old age, but I think a lot has to do with what we are talking about here.

    I think the level of standard equipment that the typical buyer expects is much higher today than it was in the past. Stripped cars as were available 30-40 years ago wouldn't fly today...even in the small cheap segments (Spark, Sonic, Cruze, etc) cars tend to be pretty well equipped, even in base forms...

    Those that need a bigger vehicle but cannot afford it are forced to go used, which hurts new-car sales. The automakers are pushing customers down in size if they want to spend less. That might not be feasible for some people. It is reality, for sure, but not really fair, imo.

    I guess though when an affordability index is thrown into the mix, my theory might be shaky... if the economy were in any kind of decent shape. But it is not.

    Good grief, young lady.  It seems you've been working hard on this.  But it is still TMI and too distracting.  What if the car doesn't understand a word that comes out of my mouth?  And these touch screens are iffy, man... no tactile feedback like a button, and they are not immediate like a button, they require you to hold your finger in place longer than a button.

    Sorry, me no likey "MyLink" and I think it is a waste.  Competitive pressure being what it is, though, I do not foresee a turnback of time on these widely panned interactive systems.

    Pick a system, they've all been panned by reviewers and customers alike... Sync, MyFordTouch, CUE...  look what has happened to Ford's "quality" scores because of MyFordTouch and Sync.  I know Ford's engineers and line workers didn't suddenly stop putting together a good vehicle...

    Every review I've read on CUE has panned it.  And these reviewers are young ppl who should be tech-savvy, not geezers, like a lot of Cadillac and Impala customers who will absolutely have NO USE for these systems.

    These systems are not truly made for drivers.  Perhaps for PASSENGERS of autonomous vehicles, and that is a future I do not want to participate in.  They will have to pry my cold, dead fingers off the steering wheel!

    Well there are more things in play when you consider what is put in cars.

    Things like larger wheels are not just for the cool factor but with the side crash standards pushing the sides of the cars larger the larger wheels are to down play the thick sides and tall noses now required.

    Many of these new sound systems are looking to not only play to the youth market but now they are looking to them to remove weight. Some in the industry are looking to make it where your NAV, sound and music will all be taken from your smar phone. This will remove much in the dash other than a box to interphase the amp and speakers with your phone. This is a little off but it is being considered more and more with nearly everyone gettring smart phones. Kind of a modern radio delete option LOL.

    Also we need to consider that in the past people would start with the lowest model and add options thill they run out of money. Today people start with the top model and move down till the payment matches what they can afford. People today are greedy. Some just want to make the rich greedy but nearly all of us have a high degree of greed and envy anymore and this is reflected in our buying habits. New phone comes out or video game people will stand in line and fight for it and over pay to boot.

    Finally car companies make money and more money the more optioned cars are. They have little interest in making stripper cars that would often be left on the lot and even when they sell it little profit is seen.

    One last thing is even in the base segments the cars with the most options like a Nox LS will be purchased over many other models at a similar price as they are pretty well optioned even at the entry level. On the Nox Terrain forum many people purchased the Nox just because it offered things at a lower price and was precieved as the better value. This has brought in many buyers from other makers just because of this value.

    Brand Loyalty is not it once was and people buy based on precieved value and quality. GM is still earning the Quality end but they market the value end with great prices and as many options posible,

    As for Mylink. I have now had the GMC verision since April and while I am not a big tech kind of guy I do like it. The system is easy to use and learn. Just with voice and a couple buttons on the steering wheel it works smooth and easy. As time goes on these systems will be more and more refined and with free firmware updates things on older systems will improve and adapt to new phones and other items. I do think the CUE went too far on the tech side out of the box. I expect like I drive they will refine it and in this case it will come much faster than BMW did it.

    Well if the Terrain SLE-1 had no backup camera it would make me happy because I like to participate in the operation of the vehicle, not just be a passenger waiting for the car to wipe the drool off my chin. And it would lower the price so more could be sold.

      Tesla Officially in Trouble, Business Insider Says!

      To quote Business Insider final comments on Tesla and the Chevy Bolt:
      "Clearly, Tesla would be in less trouble if the Chevy Bolt were a bad car. But it isn't. Teslas have always blown me away. The Bolt blew me away for different reasons. I just hope Tesla is prepared to take this into account." 
      Matthew is a Business Insider senior correspondent who covers transportation and as a fan of Tesla was excited to check out a Chevy BOLT as comparison to the Tesla. On a recent trip to california he took time to visit the closet Chevrolet Dealer to his hotel and this is what he found.
      He states that to borrow Barkley's line, "Tesla is in trouble." You have one of the world's biggest auto companies that is known for killing the electric auto stepping off the sidelines and actually committing considerable resources to building a long range EV where it can afford to lose money on it long term till the market changes. Tesla has 400,000 plus pre-orders, but is burning through cash by the billions and while the launch of the Tesla 3 is near and Tesla still has Sexy much like Apple to an iPhone. Tesla does not have the depth of customer auto experience to pull from and as the author points out, Tesla balance sheet is precarious as it is based on raising funds on a growth story. The author goes onto say that no one will cross shop a Tesla S or X with the Chevy BOLT. They will due to limited options cross shop the Tesla 3 to the Bolt.
      To pull some interesting statements from the story, the author had the following to say:
      "I found it more fun to drive than both the Tesla Model S and the Model X, but not the original Roadster, a much smaller vehicle."
      "The Bolt is plenty fast for most people."
      "GM isn't going to overwhelm Tesla with Bolt sales. I actually think the Model 3 will greatly outsell the Bolt once Tesla's car arrives. However, it's also possible that if the Model 3 is delayed or is slow to ramp up, Chevy will be preparing a mid-cycle refresh of the Bolt before Model 3 sales start to achieve some major momentum. In other words, GM will always be ahead, and the company — barring another massive financial meltdown — will never stop putting the Bolt up against the Model 3."
      BI covered the BOLT in follow stories with the next one being more of an official review that starts off with covering the auto with the following statement: "A platform, not business as usual!" 
      From ride-hailing to ride-sharing, self driving Chevy has delivered an auto for the future that gives GM options on how they build and expand their EV lineup. BI took delivery of their white Premier BOLT just before the blizzard that hit NY. Clearly a compact-crossover-hatchback look, design is what the magazine employees felt it was and is. Surprising the BI reviewers was the amount of cargo the auto can hold and how well it handled 4 people and grocery getting. BI states that GM has told them the next addition to the BOLT lineup will be a larger auto that can accommodate 5 or more people. An exceptionally well executed minimalist design that comes with an interior that feels more premium in comparison to auto's this size in the past from GM that felt clearly parts bin cheap. The review goes on to talk about how setting the front seat for a 6'4" tall driver and getting in the back with room ahead of the knees for the same size person is a nice welcome addition to such a compact auto. Heated steering wheel was welcomed by all. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto kept everyone happily connected to their phone while driving.
      The final statement to quote from the review is as follows:
      "We were impressed with the Bolt, as a car, as an electric car, and as a mobility concept. In many ways, it is GM's post-bankruptcy masterpiece, a real feather in the cap of CEO Mary Barra and her executive team, who took what the company had achieved with its ill-fated EV-1 back in the 1990s and turned it up to 11. 
      I also flat-out loved driving it. I blasted in and out of New York City twice, rocketed around the streets of Gotham, darting through traffic, and cruised along the highways of New Jersey. I also enjoyed just driving it around the quiet streets of the suburb where I live.
      The steering is quick and responsive, and the handling is sharp enough to provide the confidence you need when surfing that sweet EV torque.
      The single-pedal mode is also very cool — I dug not using the brakes at all for extended excursions in my town. After a bit of practice, you get into a kind of Zen state with it. 
      Not a single person asked me about the car, and that can be chalked up to the ho-hum design. But I didn't care. I was lovin' it. Plain and simple, the Bolt is fun."
      Here is where we have overlap between story #2 and Story #3 which covers the 7 Killer Features:
      Dual Screens- 10.2" touch screen infotainment center & an 8" drivers console display which are totally customizable. Auto's wireless charging console. BOLT App allowing you to be connected to your auto at all times. Five cameras: front, rear, side mirrors and their 360 camera. 9hr full charge time from a 240 volt charger. 25 miles per hour, faster with Level 3 DC charging. Lane Keep assist feature. Modern Seat design allowing for maximum space inside. Over all these writeups show that GM has delivered a superior auto to the Prius, Leaf, 500e, etc. The future will be bright for the BOLT as GM move the platform forward.

      Porsche's upcoming Mission E is an important vehicle for the brand and they want to give the best shot of succeeding. To do this, the German sports car builder is planning to price it to compete in a "segment below the Panamera".
      This information comes to us from Porsche's chairman Oliver Blume. Speaking with Drive.com.au, Blume says the model will be offered in various power outputs (something akin to other Porsche models like the 911 and Cayenne).
      "We're thinking of different options. There will be more than one model, with different levels of power." said Blume.
      Considering the Panamera begins at $85,000, we wouldn't be surprised if Porsche prices the Mission E around the $65 to $75,000 mark.
      Previously, Porsche has said the initial Mission E would have an output of 600 horsepower and a range of 300 miles.

      All CX-5s will come equipped with a 2.5L SkyActiv-G four-cylinder and six-speed automatic (sorry, no manual transmission is on offer for this generation). The 2.5 produces 187 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive comes standard, while Mazda's i-ACTIV all-wheel drive system adds $1,300 to the base price.
      The CX-5 Sport comes decently equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, Smart City Brake Support, 7-inch color touchscreen with Mazda Connect, push-button start, and power accessories. 
      The CX-5 Touring ($26,855) adds blind-spot monitoring with rear-cross traffic alert, dual-zone climate control, leatherette upholstery, heated front seats, six-way power driver's seat, keyless entry, and auto-leveling LED headlights.
      Wrapping up the CX-5 lineup is the Grand Touring ($30,335). This model features full LED lighting outside, 19-inch alloy wheels, leather seats, eight-way power driver's seat with lumbar, rain-sensing wipers, and heated exterior mirrors.
      Options for the CX-5 include navigation, Bose audio system, heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, radar cruise control, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams.
