A new Luxury Edition package is also available for the Impala LT. It adds leather front seats, heated front seats, power front-passenger seat, Bose premium sound system, 1 year of free satellite radio, universal remote, auto-dimming interior mirror, and heated outside mirrors.

The Luxury Edition package is standard on the Impala LTZ, along with an 8-way power driver's seat, theft-deterrent alarm, chrome door handles, and fog lights. A power sunroof is optional.

According to Chevrolet, the Impala will achieve 18 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
