2024 chevy impala ss price

The rise of the Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) has spelled doom for many full-size passenger cars, but the 2020 Chevrolet Impala marches on, oblivious to the oblivion it may soon face. For those who still love the comfort and safety of a full-size sedan, the Impala makes a compelling argument. It comes standard with a potent V6 engine, a spacious interior and a velvety-smooth ride.

While not as technically advanced as the Toyota Avalon, the Impala also isn’t as expensive, and it allows buyers the choice of adding driver assists, a nice perk for those who don’t care for such systems (they are standard on the Avalon). The base LT trim comes very nicely equipped, and the top-line Premier achieves near-luxury-car levels of equipment.

Used 2020 Chevrolet Impala Pricing

The 2020 Chevy Impala LT sedan has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at $32,495, including the $875 delivery charge. The Premier trim bumps the price to $37,595. Add all the bells and whistles and a loaded Premier comes out just over $40,000. Both prices are MSRP before generous incentives being offered by GM.

While the Impala undercuts its Toyota Avalon rival along with the Kia Cadenza and Nissan Maxima, its pricing is slightly higher than the Dodge Charger. Check the KBB.com Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying for their new Chevy Impala. The Impala’s resale figures are expected to hold only average value in the years ahead, trailing the segment-leading Toyota Avalon by a wide margin.

Driving the Used 2020 Chevrolet Impala

Chevrolet’s Impala nameplate has been around, on-and-off, since 1958 and while it remains a full-size sedan, measuring over 200 inches nose-to-tail, it doesn’t have much in common with those bloated boulevard cruisers of decades past. First launched for the 2014 model-year, the latest-generation 2020 Impala features a stylish, coupe-like roofline while still offering plenty of interior space and great visibility.

With its standard V6 engine, the Impala is impressively quick, with ample power for passing and merging even on steep grades. Chevrolet claims the Impala can sprint to 60 mph in a mere 6.0 seconds, and after a day pushing our test car to the limit, we believe it. Despite its mass, the 2020 Chevrolet Impala has an unexpected spryness to its handling, but it’s just as comfortable as those classic versions were in decades past.

Interior Comfort

Chevrolet may bill itself as a brand for the “masses,” but you might not know that if you slipped inside without first spotting the familiar bow-tie badge. The first thing you’re likely to note is just how well equipped and finished the latest Impala can be. The entry-level LT is nicely appointed and the top-line Premier downright posh.

Then you’ll be impressed by the sedan’s cavernous interior space. Even with five adults, no one will be jostling one another, especially with the Impala’s supportive seats keeping you firmly in place. Heading out for a long weekend, or just a golf outing, the 18.8-cubic-foot trunk will swallow everything you need.

Exterior Styling

No longer a wallflower sitting on rental lots, this latest-generation Impala full-size sedan is striking. Its taut sheetmetal hides its 201.3-inch length well without looking over-the-top. Even the grille — an element that gapes on many other cars — is well-proportioned. The long and powerful hood leads into a nicely swept windshield and sweptback roof, while the sides gently flex with creases running just below the windows. The trunklid appears short but hides plenty of space inside. Wheel sizes range from 18 inches on the LT to 19- and optional 20-inch wheels on the Premier.

Favorite Features

With its bright icons, rapid response and intuitive interface, the Chevrolet infotainment system standard in the 2020 Chevrolet Impala is in a class all its own. The 8-inch touch screen isn’t as large as some competitors, but does house controls for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and, on Premier trims, voice-activated navigation.

While most competitors make these systems standard, not everyone wants this type of technology, which is why Chevrolet makes features like blind-spot monitor, lane-change alert and rear park assist optional on the LT and standard on the Premier. The Premier also offers the option of forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and lane-departure warning.

Standard Features

The entry-level 2020 Impala LT comes nicely equipped including a V6 engine, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and remote start. Standard amenities include 18-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, 4.2-inch driver-information screen, AM/FM 6-speaker audio with 8-inch color display, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and multiple USB ports. An 8-way-power driver’s seat with lumbar control is also standard, along with dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, rear defroster, rearview camera and a hidden storage spot behind the 8-inch touch screen.

Move to the Premier trim and you’ll get navigation, wireless phone charging, single CD/MP3 player, leather seating, Bose audio and additional driver assists (See Favorite Features section).

Factory Options

Optional packages for the LT trim include the LT Convenience Package (heated front seats, heated steering wheel, premium carpeted floormats), and the Driver Confidence Package (rear cross-traffic alert, rear park assist, lane-change alert and blind-spot monitor). Stand-alone options include 18-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels, rear spoiler and numerous dealer accessories.

The Premier offers the Premier Confidence Package (forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control and 20-inch wheels) and the Premier Convenience Package (heated and ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, power tilt/telescopic steering column, memory settings for the driver’s seat and steering column plus driver’s-side auto-dimming outside mirror). Stand-alone options on the Premier include a dual-pane sunroof, automatic emergency braking and 20-inch wheels.

Engine & Transmission

The 2020 Chevrolet Impala offers only one engine choice this year: a 305-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 teamed with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This is the same engine offered in the Chevrolet Camaro, and it makes the big Impala sedan perform like an SS-badged car. The front-drive Impala is capable of 0-60-mph acceleration in about 6.0 seconds.

KBB Vehicle Review and Rating Methodology

Our Expert Ratings come from hours of both driving and number crunching to make sure that you choose the best car for you. We comprehensively experience and analyze every new SUV, car, truck, or minivan for sale in the U.S. and compare it to its competitors. When all that dust settles, we have our ratings.

We require new ratings every time an all-new vehicle or a new generation of an existing vehicle comes out. Additionally, we reassess those ratings when a new-generation vehicle receives a mid-cycle refresh — basically, sprucing up a car in the middle of its product cycle (typically, around the 2-3 years mark) with a minor facelift, often with updates to features and technology.

Rather than pulling random numbers out of the air or off some meaningless checklist, KBB’s editors rank a vehicle to where it belongs in its class. Before any car earns its KBB rating, it must prove itself to be better (or worse) than the other cars it’s competing against as it tries to get you to spend your money buying or leasing.

Our editors drive and live with a given vehicle. We ask all the right questions about the interior, the exterior, the engine and powertrain, the ride and handling, the features, the comfort, and of course, about the price. Does it serve the purpose for which it was built? (Whether that purpose is commuting efficiently to and from work in the city, keeping your family safe, making you feel like you’ve made it to the top — or that you’re on your way — or making you feel like you’ve finally found just the right partner for your lifestyle.)

We take each vehicle we test through the mundane — parking, lane-changing, backing up, cargo space and loading — as well as the essential — acceleration, braking, handling, interior quiet and comfort, build quality, materials quality, reliability.
