2018 Chevy Impala Fuel Efficiency & Gas Consumption
It only takes a quick comparison of the 2018 Chevy Impala to see exactly why Consumer Reports ranked it as the number one large car. It has a top notch performance to go with its stylish looks. One of the best parts of the new 2018 Chevrolet Impala is that it doesn’t have to burn a lot of fuel to generate that award-winning performance. The newest Impala comes standard with an efficient 2.5L four-cylinder engine that generates 197 horsepower. Even when you upgrade to the 3.6L V6 for an exhilarating 305 horsepower, you’ll still be getting some of the most competitive fuel economy available for full-size cars; regardless of whether you purchase the LS, LT, Premier or any of the other trim configurations.
2018 Impala Fuel Mileage
The EPA conducted research on both of the Chevy Impala engines. They put it through the fuel economy gauntlet with both the standard four-cylinder engine and the V6. They found that the four-cylinder engine gets 22 miles to the gallon in the city, 30 miles per gallon on the highway, and 25 miles per gallon combined. This engine only uses about four gallons of gas on average to go 100 miles.
The Chevy Impala V6 brings a ton of additional power, and still gets respectable gas mileage that’s almost on par with the base four-cylinder engine. The U.S. Department of Energy reports an EPA estimated 28 miles per gallon highway, 19 miles per gallon city, and 22 miles per gallon combined with the V6. In other words, you can upgrade to the power of a V6 and still only use half a gallon more per 100 miles.

Consumer Reports conducted their own research into the Chevrolet Impala fuel economy.

The large gas tank gives this car a cruising range of 400 miles, and Consumer Reports estimates that the average driver (12,000 miles/ year) will use 555 gallons of fuel at a cost of roughly $1,325.
