Rumor has it that the new 2018 Chevy Impala will experience major updates and changes –which aren’t only affecting the overall style of the ride but also power and performance. Chevy Impala has been the iconic ride from this brand, delivering its own appeal and legendary name. It shouldn’t be too surprising if most auto enthusiasts and fans are expecting for the updates and developments – to what stage Chevy has done.

But for the 2018 Chevy Impala model, it would be different as major updates are expected from this line.
Chevrolet doesn’t mention anything grandeur about their updates but on the contrary to what people believe, they won’t be doing any major changes for the sedan although they may be doing something on the trim levels. It is expected that transmission and powertrain will also change. But if they are doing something major, it is most likely that they will be the same platform used by the Buick LaCrosse 2017.
