Stop/Start Technology Standard in 2015 Impala

Chevrolet's stop/start technology shuts down the engine in certain driving conditions to reduce fuel consumption.
The Chevy Impala has been heading in the right direction for years, and now it has reached a new road.

 

Getting great fuel economy is about to become a whole lot easier for future Chevy Impala owners. The American carmaker recently announced that stop/start technology will come standard on the 2015 Impala base 2.5-liter ECOTEC engine, allowing the vehicle to better its fuel economy by nearly 5%.

With stop/start technology, the engine shuts down in certain driving conditions to reduce fuel consumption. Combined with the Impala’s standard four-cylinder engine, customers will have higher mpg city ratings at 22 mpg without having a higher price tag. The EPA estimates that the stop/start will help the Impala achieve a 25-mpg combined, which is one mpg more than last year’s model.

This new standard feature makes the 2015 Impala the second vehicle in Chevrolet’s lineup to feature stop/start technology, following the 2014 Malibu, which was introduced last year. The 2015 Impala will arrive on dealer lots this summer with a MSRP of $27,735 for the base model with stop/start technology. To see this technology yourself, make sure you stop by Nehls Chevrolet for a test drive when the sedan arrives!
