The Impala's performance is one more indicator of an emerging domestic renaissance.

Jim Ellis Chevrolet is pleased to announce the revamped 2014 Chevrolet Impala has established itself as a game-changer, taking the top position in Consumer Reports ratings held exclusively by Japanese and European models for the past two decades. It has earned an “excellent” score of 95 that places it not only at the top of its “Large Sedan” category, but also among the top-rated vehicles Consumer Reports has tested.

"The Impala's performance is one more indicator of an emerging domestic renaissance," said Jake Fisher, Director of Consumer Reports automotive testing. "We've seen a number of redesigned American models-including the Chrysler 300, Ford Escape and Fusion and Jeep Grand Cherokee deliver world-class performance in our tests."

It is no wonder the Impala has outscored luxury competitors costing as much as $20,000 or more. Its competitive 3.6-liter V6 engine gets 22 mpg, and Consumer Reports engineers felt the car rides like a luxury sedan with surprisingly agile handling. The spacious cabin sets a new standard for Chevrolet with its high quality materials, intuitive controls and roomy seating.
