The base LS gets you a 3.6-liter V6 engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission with the usual add-ons of traction and stability control. Four-wheel disc brakes are standard, along with dual front, front-side and curtain-side airbags and daytime running lights. You’ll get a tilt steering wheel, air conditioning, 1 year of OnStar and a CD/MP3 player with digital media connection, Bluetooth and satellite radio. The driver gets a 6-way power seat that complements the full power package of doors, windows, mirrors and remote keyless entry. 17-inch wheels are alloy this year instead of steel, and cruise control is in keeping with the Impala's road-king image.
The LT starts with the same 3.6-liter V6 and 6-speed automatic combo as the base LS, but adds fancy features like dual-zone manual climate controls, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with controls for the CD/MP3 player and remote engine start. There are small additions here as well, like illuminated visor mirrors, a compass and an outside temperature gauge, but you’ll also get fog lights to complement your automatic headlights and daytime running lights. You’ll still get Bluetooth, 1 year of OnStar, alloy wheels and a full power package. Safety comes via traction and stability control, 6 standard airbags and 4-wheel antilock disc brakes.
Leather covers everything here—the tilt steering wheel and the heated power front seats. The power mirrors are heated, too, and the controls on the steering wheel are now connected to a Bose stereo with Bluetooth, satellite radio and a digital media connection. You’ll get 1 year of OnStar, an automatic rear-view, dual-zone climate controls and remote engine start. Wheels are 18-inch alloys and connected to a sport suspension, and the whole package is powered by the new 3.6-liter V6 and 6-speed automatic combo. There’s a rear spoiler, automatic headlights, daytime running lights and fog lights, as well as a full power package. Brakes are 4-wheel antilock discs and dual front, front-side and curtain-side airbags stand ready if the traction or stability control systems should fail you.
