2020 is the final year of production for the Chevrolet Impala. It was first produced from 1958 until 1985, again from 1994 until 1996, and released in 2000 for what would be its final run. It is a well-known car in the US market but has seen its sales dwindle from over 300,000 units sold in the US in 2007 to less than 50,000 in 2019.
The Impala is a full-size four-door mainstream sedan. For its final year, it is available in two trims—the mid-level LT and the top-level Premier—having dropped the base level LS from its line-up. It also eliminated the sluggish 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, so both trims are manufactured with a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 6-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel-drive. The Impala is noticeably aging with its slow engine, poor fuel economy and out-dated styling. Although consumers like its affordability and its surprising space in both the cabin and the trunk, it has been making its exit for a while now.
Complaints about the Impala include numerous reports of rough shifting; malfunctioning blind side sensors; water leaks in the trunk and improper activation of Reduced Engine Power while driving. Recent year models have been subject to recalls for defective rear brake calipers (2018–2019); malfunctioning airbags (2016); and a failing fuel pump flange weld, which can lead to increased risk of fire (2016), amongst other things.
