2015 Impala Offering Standard Stop/Start Technology

ST. LOUIS, Miss – Chevrolet has officially announced that the 2015 Impala Will Offer Standard Stop/Start Technology, a few steps behind the Chevy Malibu which acquired the enhancements late last year. The full-size sedan is equipped with the base 2.50-liter four cylinder engine, improving the Impala’s fuel economy by nearly 5 percent, or virtually one mile per gallon. The Standard Stop/Start system shuts down the engine when it would regularly be idling, then kicks it back on when the driver hits the accelerator. This type of technology is continuing to grow more and more popular and General Motors believes sales of start/stop vehicles will rise from 8.8 million in 2013 to 55.4 million in 2022. 

GM’s eAssist system has helped engineers obtain the knowledge needed to improve the start/stop system. GM engineers made it a point to have the shutdown/start sequence appear and feel effortless to the driver. The engineers created algorithms for “change-of-mind events” -for instance, when the driver begins to stop and then suddenly accelerates- as well as programmed the system to evaluate the cabin temperature, humidity, battery charge and other factors when opting to turn off the engine. Expected to go on sale this summer, the 2015 Impala Offering Standard Stop/Start Technology will return an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 22 mpg/city and 31 highway, and 25 combined mpg.
