The Chevy Impala is a full-size car that has been in production in bits and pieces since 1958. First introduced that year, it was in continuous production until 1985, when Chevrolet decided to drop the model in favor of the Caprice, which sold until 1990. It was reintroduced in 1994 and ran until 1996, when it was again discontinued. It was then reintroduced again in 1999. It is currently still in production and features three distinct models: the Impala LS, the Impala LT, and the Impala LTZ, with the price increasing respectively depending on the model.
The base model Impala is the LS, which features a 3.6L V6 engine with a six-speed automatic transmission that offers up to 30 miles per gallon highway. It comes with 16-inch aluminum wheels, dual stainless steel exhaust pipes, power-adjustable side mirrors, a six-way seat adjuster, AM/FM stereo with CD player, MP3 input and a six-speaker sound system, OnStar with turn-by-turn directions standard for the first six months, Sirius XM satellite radio free for three months, Bluetooth compatibility, traction control, keyless entry, steering-wheel-mounted audio control, and – to top it all off – carpet floor mats. Believe it or not, this is the cheapest Impala model.
The LT features much of the same things that the LS does, including the engine, though it does come with 17-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, deluxe instrument panel with chrome trim, dual-zone manual climate control, flip-and-fold-flat rear seats, a leather wrapped shifter, and a remote starter system. The LTZ features 18-inch machined aluminum wheels, fog lamps, heated front bucket seats with leather appointments, powered adjusters, a Bose eight-speaker system and a cool garage door opener, along with all the bells, whistles and gadgets from the LS and LT models.
The Impala is a full-size car, but that shouldn’t be a factor in your auto transport price, when it comes time to ship it. Auto shipping prices are based primarily on the route that will need to be taken, the time of year, and the size of the vehicle that is being shipped. Since the Impala is still a car, its size shouldn’t have any bearing on the price – if it were larger, or longer, you could have to pay extra because it would be heavy and cost more in terms of fuel to move it. But since it’s not – and since it’s been in production almost continuously for over 50 years – most auto transporters don’t have a problem moving it. The final cost for your specific car transport is going to be dependent on the route itself – i.e., the pickup and delivery cities – and the time of year. It’s cheaper to ship from one major city to another, so keep that in mind when talking to your auto transportation representative.
