Test Drive the 2012 Chevy Impala at Midpoint Chevrolet Buick GMC in Rocky Mount, VA!
America's number one choice in large sedans, the steadfast Chevy Impala has been around for more than 50 years, in large part due to its reliability, smooth and quiet ride, easy-to-use controls, seating that sits up to 6, voluminous trunk with 18 cubic feet of space inside, and a roomy cabin that manages to be even more spacious than that of the Lexus LS460. The 2012 Chevrolet Impala carries on this tradition of excellence admirably, and you can test drive it for yourself in Rocky Mount, VA, at Midpoint Chevrolet Buick GMC, serving customers in Roanoke, Lynchburg, Altavista, Martinsville, Salem, and throughout southwest and central Virginia.
Available in base LS, midlevel LT and range-topping LTZ trim levels, the 2012 Impala replaces its previous choice of two V6 engines with a single improved offering for all trims. The new 3.6L direct-injected V6 generates 302hp (versus 230hp for the old 3.9L and 211hp for the 3.5L) and 252 lb-ft of torque, and features Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and E85 FlexFuel capability. The standard automatic transmission has also gotten a boost, upgraded from a four-speed in the 2011 edition to a six-speed in the 2012.
STANDARD & OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT
The Chevy Impala gets a facelift for its 2012 iteration, including 16-inch aluminum wheels, chrome mesh on the grille and fog-light housings, an updated rear end appearance with dual exhaust outlets, and interior woodgrain trim. In addition to the aforementioned 18 cubic feet of space inside, the Impala also can transport longer items, thanks to the segment-exclusive flip-and-fold-flat rear seat. With comfortable seating for up to six people, the Impala handily beats out competitors like the Ford Taurus, Dodge Charger and Nissan Maxima that do not offer this kind of seating arrangement. Turn trips both long and short into periods of relaxation with heated power-adjustable leather front seats. Listen to all your favorite songs through a 6-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 sound system with auxiliary input jack, or upgrade to an 8-speaker Bose premium sound system in the LTZ and feel like you are sitting on the front row of your own personal concert hall. Make and take cellphone calls hands-free thanks to Bluetooth wireless technology, now standard on all retail Impalas. Entertain yourself for hours on those long trips with over 180 commercial-free channels of music, sports, comedy, family programming, news, talk radio and more courtesy of XM Radio. Never fumble around for your keys again - the remote vehicle starter system eliminates the need for a key entirely. Finally, get your daily dose of sunlight and fresh air with the available power tilt/sliding sunroof with sunshield. Other features/options include an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated power door mirrors, rear spoiler, leather steering wheel with audio controls, fog lights, Driver Information Center (DIC), daytime running lights, and a Universal Home Remote transmitter for the garage door opener.
A notable safety feature on the Impala is OnStar, including the Directions & Connections Plan. Many features are available to you with OnStar, including Emergency Services, Crisis Assist, Stolen Vehicle Assistance, Remote Ignition Block, Remote Door Unlock, Roadside Assistance, Remote Horn and Lights, Turn-by-Turn Navigation, Hands-Free Calling, Vehicle Diagnostics, and Low Mileage Discount. The final feature of OnStar is Automatic Crash Response, which uses sensors to detect if a crash has occurred and then sends an alert to OnStar, with no input from you required. Other Impala standard safety equipment includes six airbags, StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System, Traction Control, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), rear child locks and vehicle anti-theft system.
