When it comes to fuel-efficient, full-size sedans that don’t sacrifice on power, comfort or safety, the 2017 Chevy Impala is on top of the game. It offers everything the money conscious individual would want, and it is more affordable than its top competitors.
The 2017 Chevy Impala Engine
The LS and LT models come standard with the Ecotec 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, while the Impala Premiere comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine (which is also available it the LS and LT trims). As a result, you don’t have to choose between power and efficiency.
2017 Chevy Impala MPG & Fuel Cost
The Ecotec engine gives an EPA-estimated 22 miles per gallon while city driving and 30 mpg on the highway. With the average Arizonan driving around 9,700 miles each year, which is probably a 60/40 split between city and highway driving, and the average gas price in Phoenix being $2.16, the Chevy Impala annual fuel cost will be around $851.
Compare the Competition
Compare that to the Ford Taurus’ smaller 2.0L engine, estimated at 20 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway, with an estimated annual cost of $918, and you’re saving about $67 per year – without forfeiting any get up and go.
Engine & Power
The Impala’s 3.6L V6 engine offers more power while still being very affordable. The Chevy Impala gas mileage is an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway, you’re still saving money at the pump, all the while maintaining 305 horsepower in your Impala’s engine. Using the same information from above, the estimated annual fuel cost would be about $960.
The Ford Taurus’ equivalent 3.5L engine delivers a weaker 288 horsepower and a slightly lower estimated fuel usage of 18 mpg city and 27 on the highway, estimating the annual fuel cost at $1,010. That’s a savings of around $50 each year.
