Chevrolet will introduce a brand new Impala at next month’s 2012 New York Auto Show, further advancing the total transformation of the automaker’s passenger car lineup with technologically advanced and fuel efficient models.

In fact, with the introduction of the new Impala, Chevrolet will have revamped nearly every passenger car in its lineup over a 24-month period.

The new Impala will go on sale mid next year as a 2014 model, and unlike the current model this one will be built alongside the Volt and 2013 Malibu at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck manufacturing plant.

Along with today’s announcement, Chevy also released this sole teaser image of its 2014 Impala, revealing a portion of the car’s C-pillar and chrome detailing. The new car is expected to ride on a stretched Epsilon II platform, the same front-wheel drive platform underpinning the 2013 Cadillac XTS and in shorter form resides under the Buick Regal and LaCrosse as well as the 2013 Chevy Malibu.

The Impala nameplate was introduced in 1958 and has been one of Chevy’s best-selling passenger cars for decades. The new 2014 model will be the 10th generation of the Impala and should continue to build on the nameplate’s strong heritage.

Also in New York, Chevrolet will also unveil a facelifted version of its Traverse crossover for the 2013 model year. The latest version of the popular crossover gets GM’s industry’s first front center airbag as well as some revised styling and a revamped interior previewed in the teaser image below.
