2014 Impala Coming This Spring! A New Generation


Totally redesigned. Aggressively refined. This is an Impala like you’ve never seen before!
2014 Chevrolet Impala 
Impala has always been a flagship for Chevrolet. But a leader should never rest on the laurels of its past — especially when it wears the Chevy bowtie. So, when it came time to reinvent one of the brand’s most iconic nameplates, Chevy designers and engineers reached far into the future and shaped it in the present. The end result is a stunning new interpretation of the Impala that’s only recognizable by its signature badge.
Offered in LS, LT and LTZ trim levels, the 2014 Impala is available with a choice of three drivetrains: a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, an eAssist mild hybrid system and a 3.6-liter V-6.

Intricate Design

The Impala wears the latest interpretation of Chevrolet’s twin-port grille. While it’s similar to the 2014 Chevrolet Traverse’s grille, its vertical orientation and width gives the Impala a Camaro-esque appearance. The look is subtly aggressive with a hint of menace, and when paired with the optional LED daytime running lights, the car really stands out.

The visual interest continues beyond the front. Intricate sheet-metal creases, including rear quarter-panel arcs inspired by classic Impalas, give unexpected detailing to the doors, hood and trunk lid. Large wheels are the order of the day, with 18-inch steel rims with covers standard and 18-, 19- and 20-inch alloy wheels available on the higher trims.

The styling, though, compromises driver visibility. The tall tail helps finish the exterior design and is a boon for trunk room, but it results in a short, rectangular slot of a rear window. The B- pillars are also wide, which blocked much of my view when checking for traffic over my left shoulder. The Impala offers a number of electronic safety features designed to enhance the driver’s sense of what’s happening around the car, including a blind spot warning system and a backup camera, but there’s something about an airy cabin with unobstructed views that technology can’t replace.

V-6 Power

The V-6 sedan accelerates swiftly up to cruising speeds. Chevrolet cites a zero-to-60-mph time of 6.8 seconds. Engine noises are especially muted in the cabin, even under hard acceleration

Entertainment Tech

The second generation of MyLink, its optional eight-inch touch screen provides a wealth of features, such as capacity for 10 Bluetooth devices and 1000 contacts; “natural” voice recognition; response to swipe, flick, click, and drag input gestures; and static movie-play capability. There are knobs and steering-wheel buttons for entertainment and climate controls, high-res 3-D navigation mapping, and four distinct menu screen choices. Plus this wow feature: The screen rises out of the dash at the touch of a button to open a secret storage bin that can be locked shut and disabled by typing in a four-digit code.

Safety technology

The 2014 Impala offers one of the most comprehensive collections of standard and available safety features in the segment. It employs advanced technologies – including radar – to help avoid crashes. Visual and audible alerts, depending on the alert feature, help drivers identify potential crash situations and even intervene when a crash threat appears more imminent. The alerts are designed to identify potential threats with sufficient warning to give the driver time to react and make changes.

The available safety features and benefits include firsts for Chevrolet and Impala:

Full-speed-range adaptive cruise control – Radar technology senses traffic in front of the Impala to adjust the vehicle speed, including stopping the vehicle in heavy traffic and accelerating again. It is the first application in a Chevrolet.

Collision mitigation braking – Another Chevy first: Radar technology detects a possible crash threat and alerts the driver. If the driver does not appear to react quickly enough or doesn’t react at all, this feature intervenes to apply the brakes in an effort to avoid the crash.

Forward collision alert – Camera technology detects a possible crash threat and alerts the driver, giving him or her time to stop and/or change course.

Lane departure warning – A camera-based lane detection system warns the driver of impending lane changes. The camera, mounted near the inside rearview mirror, identifies traffic lane markings and provides audible alerts.

Side blind zone alert – Using radar sensors on both sides of the vehicle, the system “looks” for other vehicles in the blind zone areas of the Impala and indicates their presence with LED-lit symbols in the outside mirrors.

Rear cross traffic alert – Based on the radar sensors of side blind zone alert, it warns the driver of vehicles in traffic when backing out of a parking spot – including angled parking. Visual and audible alerts are triggered if moving vehicles are detected.

Rear vision camera with dynamic guidelines – With a display in the center stack infotainment system, the camera provides a view of objects directly behind the Impala, while the dynamic guidelines provide a reference that helps make parking and other maneuvers easier.

Ultrasonic rear park assist – Uses sensors in the rear bumper to detect objects directly behind the vehicle and alerts the driver.

Brake pre-fill feature – To quicken the response time of the brakes and help shorten stopping distances, this features “loads” the brake calipers in anticipation of hard braking by slightly increasing the hydraulic pressure in the brake lines whenever the driver lifts off the accelerator pedal. This feature is included on models equipped with adaptive cruise control and collision mitigation breaking.

Hill hold/start assist – Applies the brakes for about 1.5 seconds to prevent roll-back when the driver moves his or her foot from the brake to the accelerator pedal.

The advanced, crash-avoidance technologies complement the Impala’s occupant protection features, including 10 standard air bags:

Dual-depth frontal passenger air bags with passenger sensing system

Driver and front passenger side-impact air bags

Driver and front passenger knee air bags

Rear outboard side-impact air bags

Head curtain air bags with rollover sensing for front and rear outboard positions

Safety belt pretensioners

Child seat restraint system.

2012 Volt Drivers Save a Barrels of Fuel!


 
 
 
 
 
Technically, that headline isn’t correct: So far, owners of the Chevrolet Volt actually have saved a supertanker’s worth of gasoline—more than 2.1 million gallons—as they’ve combined to drive some 40 million miles on electricity alone.
It’s an important yet easy accomplishment for drivers, since the Volt is capable of an EPA-certified all-electric driving range of 35 miles per charge. If owners happen to run out of electricity on the road, it’s no problem, though, because the Volt’s high-efficiency gas-powered engine/generator takes over to allow another 344 miles of range. Taking advantage of both propulsion systems, the typical Volt driver covers an average of 900 miles between visits to the gas station.

“Our Volt owners are driving the vehicle exactly as the car was designed,” said Cristi Landy, Chevrolet Volt marketing manager. “Sixty percent of the time our owners are driving electric, but the extended range is providing additional miles when they need it. This shows that you don’t have to change your daily driving habits to drive the Volt.”

It’s something that you can see for yourself, too, now that the brand has leveraged OnStar data to launch a rolling ticker on the Chevrolet.com website that shows real-time mileage—and savings—being racked up by actual Volt drivers.

“With each click of the odometer, Chevrolet Volt owners are measuring their contribution to reducing America’s dependence on foreign oil and to preserving the environment,” added Landy.

Cruze Driving Tips For Better Fuel Economy


 

 

 

 

 

To help folks prepare for the summer driving season—and save gas during it—Chevrolet recently ran a test. Two of its fuel-economy engineers, in two identical Chevy Cruze LTs, completed identical 20-minute commutes involving both city and highway driving. The only difference between the two? Ann Wenzlick drove while following the brand’s top tips for fuel-efficient driving, and Beth Nunning didn’t. The outcome? The former averaged 37 mpg—higher than the car’s 36-mpg highway rating—and the latter only managed 21 mpg.

And that advantage for Wenzlick could mean as much as $100 worth of savings each month, or $1,200 per year, based on a typical person’s 15,000 miles of annual driving with gas at $4 per gallon.

 

 

 

 

 

If you want to gain the same kind of benefits, be sure to pay attention to the following rules of the road from Chevrolet:

  • Skip the drive-through lane, since 15 minutes while you wait for a morning coffee can drink up a quarter gallon of gas.
  • Take it easy when accelerating. A smooth launch can boost mileage by 20 percent as compared to drivers who stomp the gas at each traffic light.
  • Stick to the speed limit. Driving 70 mph on the highway instead of 80 doesn’t really save much time, but it can use up to 4 extra mpg.
  • Use the cruise. Keeping to a constant speed on the highway is a key to fuel-efficient driving.
  • Know when to roll up your windows. Using fresh air instead of air conditioning can be helpful at slower speeds, but keep the windows up on the highway, where rolling windows down can have a notably negative impact on aerodynamics.
  • Always make sure tires are properly inflated. A tire that is 10 lbs. under inflated can reduce fuel economy by more than 3 percent.
  • Don’t decorate your vehicle with roof ornaments. They can disrupt aerodynamics, especially at highway speeds, where overcoming wind resistance eats up about a third of your fuel.
  • Never keep unneeded junk in the trunk. Added weight means added costs at the pump; every 100 pounds of added weight in the vehicle can reduce fuel economy by 2 percent.
  • Don’t ignore the “check engine” light. It could be a loose gas cap, but it could be a more serious problem that reduces fuel efficiency by up to 40 percent.
  • Try to bundle your errands. Cold engines use up to 50 percent more fuel than those at their regular operating temperature, so it’s better to do all your errands at once, when your engine is warmed up.

“Ann and Beth’s results support data from OnStar that shows the fuel economy of drivers in identical cars can vary by 75 percent,” said Roger Clark, manager of the GM Energy Center. “With a well-maintained car, the best drivers get up to 25 percent more miles per gallon than average. When you combine a poorly maintained car with inefficient driving habits, the fuel economy of the worst drivers can be 50 percent below average.”

Chevrolet Volt, Malibu Eco Make ‘Best Green Cars List’


 

 

 

 

While many auto brands brag about their fuel-efficient new products, only one managed to have two separate vehicles named to the KBB.com 10 Best Green Cars of 2012 roster: Chevrolet. Both the Chevy Volt and the 2013 Chevy Malibu Eco earned their way onto the list, thanks to their uncompromising approach to delivering high fuel-economy scores and customer-satisfying ownership experiences.

The Volt, of course, can provide more than 35 miles of all-electric, zero-emissions driving on a single charge, and it does so while posting an EPA line of 95 MPGe city/93 MPGe highway/94 MPGe combined. However, if its battery ever runs low, a super-efficient gas-powered I4 engine seamlessly kicks into operation to deliver hundreds of more miles of driving ability—while still achieving EPA marks of 40 mpg city/35 mpg highway/37 mpg combined.


As explained by the experts at KBB.com, “With its small gasoline engine on standby to generate electricity should the batteries run out of juice, the Volt conquers ‘range anxiety’ and makes for a car that can be filled with gas at a pump and electricity from an outlet. Sleek looks inside and out, plus room for four passengers and cargo complete the package.”

The Malibu Eco also takes the high-tech route to better gas mileage, courtesy of eAssist. This technology stores up electricity via the car’s regenerative braking system, then uses it to help provide added power during certain driving scenarios. The result is better fuel-economy than a standard gas engine, but at a lower cost than a full hybrid, since the Malibu Eco “seemingly bridges the efficiency gap between the two categories.” A standard start/stop system, which can cut off the flow of fuel when the vehicle would otherwise be idling, also helps matters. The bottom line: EPA ratings of 25 mpg city/37 mpg highway/29 mpg combined.

Tips to maximize the Chevy Volt’s fuel economy


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most Volt owners probably apply the driving habits long practiced by hybrid owners, like braking and accelerating gently, to conserve energy and maximize battery power. But they may not know that small choices, like how they choose to warm the Volt’s interior on a chilly day, also makes a difference in how far they can go on battery power alone.

Chevy Volt vehicle line director Tony Posawatz has lots of practice eeking the most out of his Volt’s 16 kWh battery, and says that even during Michigan’s cold winter months he’s achieved high mileage using battery power alone. While he won’t share his actual fuel economy numbers, he did share a few of his battery-power maximizing tips.

By taking advantage of the Volt’s technology features, driving in Low gear, and being smart about when and how they acclimate their vehicle cabins, drivers can get better gas mileage and go further on a charged battery before switching to extended-range mode.

Chevy Volt driving tips to increase fuel economy:

1. Use the Volt’s instrument panel Efficiency Gauge for driving style guidance, and remember to gently apply the accelerator and the brake whenever possible.

2. Use the heated seat feature and Eco mode in cold weather to reduce battery load. Blowing hot air to raise the cabin temperature and warm occupants uses a lot of energy, however, heated seats are the most energy-efficient way to warm the driver.

3. Warm or cool the car using your OnStar MyLink mobile app. Remotely warming or cooling the Volt’s cabin while it’s still plugged in and connected to the grid saves the battery power for driving.

4. Use Low gear. The “L” shifter position can help you engage in more aggressive motor braking, which recaptures more energy for the battery when coasting to a stop, during stop-and-go traffic, driving down hills, and even while driving aggressively.

5. Use the waste heat from the engine when in extended range mode to heat the cabin, but remember to turn it down when in EV mode

6. Keep the car plugged in for automatic battery conditioning (and low cost off-peak electricity).

7. Practice ABC (Always Be Charging). Download charging station locator apps, and keep note of public and private places, such as your friends houses, that have accessible power outlets. Get as many charges in as you can.

8. Read and follow the Volt’s Efficiency Tips

VOLT has the most accurate software to gauge the remaining state of charge of the batteries and the remaining mileage on electric mode. Their software engineers had it right.

Volt’s remaining battery power calculations are far superior than that of Nissan Leaf and Tesla Roadster. And you don’t have to worry if you ran out of electrons.

By not worrying about range anxiety, you can be more aggressive towards your use of electricity, and you can push the usage of pure electric to its maximum without fear of not making it back or stranding you in the middle of busy roads or freeways. Without the fear of range anxiety, you can put to practice your cleaner option, boldly and with a peace of mind.
