Revealed at this week's New York Auto Show, the new 2013 Impala, along with the US-market Traverse SUV, debuts a new family face for the Chevrolet brand. (The 'old' grille is only just now coming through to Holden cars... - Ed)
Engine options for the Impala will include a pair of 135kW 2.4 and 145kW 2.5 litre four-cylinder petrol engines, along with a 3.6 litre V6 engine producing 225kW and 355Nm of torque.
All three engines will be paired exclusively with a six-speed automatic transmission, with power sent to the front wheels.
Among the new Impala's safety features are Full-Speed-Range Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
Built on the extra-long version of GM's Epsilon II platform (dubbed Super Epsilon II), the new Impala shares much of its technology with Cadillac's new XTS large sedan.
We won't see this Impala with a Holden badge, but if Holden's Commodore is to be retired at the end of the upcoming VF's lifetime, we could see the next new Impala here.
