2012 Chevy Impala: Features of the public and police car versions

General Motors has revealed some of the most significant features and specs of the 2012 Chevy Impala to the public. This particular model will be released in two major versions which include those that will be sold to the public while the other would be used as police cars. The 2012 Chevy Impala was actually a redesigned model of the 2011 version with additional horsepower and better fuel-economy compared to the Ford Crown Victoria currently used as police cars. These are among the most important features that car finders of the present are looking for.

According to most car experts the latest version of the Impala is powered by one of the latest engines from General Motors. The engine used for the 2012 Chevy Impala would be the 3.6liter V6 engine equipped with a direct –injection technology for better performance. This engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. This combination allows the Impala to produce a maximum power output of about 302 horsepower. In addition to this the Impala’s sprint time or the amount of time that it would take for the car to reach the 0-60 miles per hour was recorded to be around 6.6 seconds.

Despite the increased horsepower brought about by the change of the engine and transmission, the latest edition of the Impala proves to be more fuel efficient with recorded mpg of 17 in the city and 27 in the highway. The present numbers used to measure the car’s fuel consumption is actually considered as a 3mpg improvement compared to its predecessor. When compared to the Ford Crown Victoria, this rating is almost 28% better.

To make the 2012 Chevy Impala a better police car, GM has used its StabilTrak on this vehicle which made Impala the first model series to use the company’s advanced technology for stability control.  GM engineers also upgraded its braking system to become more responsive. As a result, the Impala’s stopping distance was reduced to 132 feet when stopped from 60 to 0 miles per hour. Aside from this, the Impala’s systems for suspension and steering were subjected to fine-tuning for improved handling and reduced body roll.

The release of the 2012 Chevy Impala is scheduled next month. After this, dealerships would surely be offering the appropriate auto financing options for the latest version of the Impala to help each car finder who are interested in buying their own.
