Cars.com picked the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Impala and the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado as its Best Car and Best Truck for 2014! These awards are presented each year at the North American International Auto Show. The award is a highly prestigious award, and for Patrick Olsen, editor-in-chief of Cars.com, states, “Winning just one of these awards for an automaker is pretty tough, given the high number of quality cars and trucks that debut each year. For Chevrolet to grab both awards show the depth of their ability to build desirable vehicles.”

The Silverado, along with the Impala, has been completely redesigned for the 2014 year. It earned its place at the top with its chassis strength, redesigned interior, and the new MyLink connected infotainment system. Alan Batey, General Motors senior vice president of Global Chevrolet states, “Winning these awards is a huge honor for Chevrolet. The fact that the top vehicles in both these categories is a Chevrolet speaks volumes about the strength of our entire portfolio”.

2015 CNG-Powered Chevrolet Impala Coming?

Chevrolet has announced that the Chevrolet Impala is headed for the CNG era!  The 2015 CNG Impala will offer a bi-fuel capability that allows it to run on either gasoline or compressed natural gas.  Currently, no other automaker is selling a manufactured full-size bi-fuel sedan.

Currently, natural gas is less expensive than gasoline and produces about 20 percent less greenhouse-gas emissions than your traditionally powered vehicles.

According to Dan Akerson, GM Chairman and CEO, “We have an aggressive – and progressively ‘greener’ – product plan for the United States.  Over their service lives, our 2011 through 2017 model year vehicles alone will reduce our national fuel consumption by about 12 billion gallons.  This will offset almost a full year of crude oil imports from the Persian Gulf.”

As time gets closer to the arrival of the 2015 Chevrolet Impala, more detail will be available about the CNG Impala.  Until then, if you have not seen the newly redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Impala, please stop by your local Chevrolet Dealership or if you are around the Shreveport and Bossier City area, make sure you stop by you Shreveport and Bossier City Chevrolet Dealer – Red River Chevrolet!

2014 Chevrolet Impala Top of Consumer Reports



The all-new 2014 Chevy Impala has gone from last place in the Consumer Reports to first!  The impala conquered the report with features like “surprisingly agile handling,” “Excellent Braking,” “generally high-quality materials” and technology that is “refreshingly intuitive and easy to use.”

Previous year model Impalas scored a 63, but this one has gone well above that margin to score a 95.  Only the BMW 135i coupe and Tesla Model S have scored higher.  Consumer Reports found overall that the 2014 Chevy Impala is competitive with cars that cost $20,000 more, including the Audi A6 and the Lexus LS460L as well as the Acura RLX and Jaguar XF.
