The 2018 Impala LS is the base trim that starts at $28,770 and offers a wide variety of standard features for the most affordable trim level. This model comes standard with a COTEC® 2.5L DOHC 4-cylinder DI engine, front wheel drive, and a 6-speed automatic transmission.

You will also get the option to add navigation to the infotainment system, rear cross traffic alert, an 11-speaker Bose sound system, auto-dimming rearview mirrors, eight-way power adjustable passenger seats, and heated seats for all the luxury you could wish for.
Lastly, there is the 2018 Chevy Impala Premier trim which starts at $37,495, but the price increase is mostly on account of the engine upgrade which is subjectively worth the extra hit to your wallet if you have that passion for burning the road wherever you go. This model comes standard with the 3.6L DOHC V6 DI engine which increases the horsepower by a third of the other engine option. Additionally, the 2018 Chevy Impala Premier offers a few more items standards including 19-inch alloy wheels, HID headlights, those amazing heated front seats, the 11-speaker Bose audio system, wireless charging, and the always helpful rear parking sensors and built-in navigation for the 8-inch touchscreen with the Chevy MyLink Infotainment system.
The 2018 Chevy Impala offers a fairly high level of performance for a vehicle of its price range and elegant style. The 2018 Chevy Impala offers two engine choices that can be adequately nicknamed the “everyday” engine and the “zealot” engine.
The “everyday” engine is mechanically known as an ECOTEC® 2.5L DOHC 4-cylinder DI engine. This engine offers a fairly substantial 197 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, it has auto start/stop technology in order to save on fuel usage, as well as variable valve timing in order to offer a higher level of performance at a higher RPM. Even though it can be considered an everyday option when compared to the “zealot” engine, this is still far better than you can expect from any other average engine option for your everyday commuter.
The top level engine is a 3.6L DOHC V6 DI engine which offers an extremely impressive 305 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque. This is about a third more than the everyday engine. This engine also offers VVT to spike the performance level to new heights.
The transmission on any 2018 Chevy Impala is a 6-speed automatic transmission, and the drive is always a front wheel drive. The exhaust differs depending on your trim between single-outlet, dual-outlet, or dual outlet with bright tip exhaust.
Overall, when compared with the price point and the average output of other vehicles in its body class, the 2018 Chevy Impala does well for itself when it comes to performance, and will never leave you disappointed.
