    Refreshed 2012 Chevrolet Impala shows its new face



    http://www.leftlanenews.com/chevrolet-impala-2012.html

    Leftlane already confirmed the switch from two underpowered, inefficient V6 engines to a single, new 302-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine for the 2012 Chevrolet Impala, but now we have the first image showing the minor refresh as well.

    While no one expected much in the form of cosmetic change given that the 2012 Impala is merely a band-aid until the redesigned 2014 unit arrives, the changes to the front fascia might be some of the least noticeable refreshes ever applied. If you can’t tell the difference, don’t be alarmed – most probably won’t either. GM says the rear fascia received some work as well, but no images have been leaked of those changes.

    The real changes are under the hood
    At 302 horsepower, the new V6 is rated at just one pony less than the short-lived Impala SS’ 303-horsepower 5.3-liter V8 used between 2006 and 2009. The 2012 model’s direct-injected V6 also puts out an improved 252 lb-ft. of torque, which peaks at 5,300 rpm. The unit is also E85 FlexFuel capable.

    That’s a big boost over the current car’s standard 211-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 and even its optional 230-horsepower 3.9-liter V6.
