Chevrolet is looking to upgrade the engine and horsepower under the hood of their Impala. The engine they are going to add to the 2012 Impala is the current engine in the Chevy Camaro. The new engine is a 3.6L V6 VVT that can put out more power than ever before. The 3.6L engine is also currently used in the Buick Lacrosse and puts out 280 horsepower, but in the upcoming 2012 Impala, the 3.6L engine will put out 302 horsepower and 252 lbs.-ft. of torque.
The 3.6L engine is an upgrade over the 3.5L engine and will offer more power over the 3.9L engine that is currently under the hood of the Impala. This size reduction (or size gain depending on which model) is vital and will make the Impala a great vehicle option for those police forces who want to opt out of getting the new Caprice model.
As far as major changes goes for the Impala, the engine is the biggest, seeing as how the Impala has already undergone a major transformation over the years since 2006. With these changes though, many fans and car enthusiasts are hoping that the Impala will re-ignite its feud with the Dodge Charger in the years to come.
