Chevrolet began taking pre-orders in Korea today for the Impala, the first time the brand is introducing a full-size sedan domestically.
The Chevrolet Impala for Korea is assembled at General Motors’ Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant.
“We are thrilled to have the iconic flagship sedan complete Chevrolet’s passenger car portfolio in Korea,” said Sergio Rocha, president and CEO of GM Korea. “We are confident that its bold styling, comfort, safety, powerful performance and technology will make it a leader in the highly competitive upper-medium sedan segment.”
To meet an array of customer needs, the Impala will be offered in Korea with two engine choices: a 2.5L SIDI L4 engine and a 3.6L SIDI V-6 engine. Korea-only convenience features include power folding side mirrors, an electronic toll collecting system, fuel-fill cap locking, rain-sensing wipers, a unique cluster, standard navigation, a unique antenna, a 220V power outlet, rear audio controls and rear heated seats.
The 2016 Impala will include Apple CarPlay capability, which takes the iPhone features and puts them on the vehicle’s display in a smart, simple manner. This allows drivers to make calls, send and receive messages and listen to music right from the touchscreen or by voice via Siri. Apple CarPlay supported apps include Phone, Messages, Maps, Music and compatible third-party apps.
