For a majority of purchasers, the most weighty and pertinent vicissitudes for the 2016 Chevy Impala are the elimination of the ephemeral “trifling hybrid” eAssist version and addition of a wireless connection. However, if you are a genuine admirer of innovative design, then you’d want to check out the bi-fuel Chevy Impala, capable of running on both CNG gas and gasoline.
