Chevrolet's Impala goes to Korea

American-made full-sizer gets unique features for new market.

Chevrolet is introducing a full-size car in the South Korean market for the first time with the debut of its 2016 Impala.

The imported Impala will be built in GM's Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant alongside the domestic-bound model and will be delivered mostly unchanged.

The 2.5L four-cylinder and 3.6L V6 engine will both be offered and the list of unique features is short. Buyers will have access to power folding side mirrors, an electronic toll collecting system, fuel-fill cap locking, rain-sensing wipers, a unique cluster, standard navigation, a unique antenna, a 220V power outlet, rear audio controls and rear heated seats.

"We are thrilled to have the iconic flagship sedan complete Chevrolet's passenger car portfolio in Korea,” said Sergio Rocha, president and CEO of GM Korea, in the announcement.

"We are confident that its bold styling, comfort, safety, powerful performance and technology will make it a leader in the highly competitive upper-medium sedan segment.”
