2011 Chevrolet Impala - Click above for high-res image gallery

When discussing the current W-body Chevrolet Impala, the phrase "long-in-the tooth" is an understatement. And while Chevrolet's biggest retail sedan was scheduled to get a complete overhaul in 2013, a report from GMInsideNews states that the next Impala has now rescheduled for the 2014 model year.

In an effort to keep the elderly Impala passably fresh until its new Epsilon-based replacement arrives, General Motors is reportedly ready to outfit the big sedan with its 3.6-liter V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Both the current 3.5- and 3.9-liter V6 engines have been canned, and because of the W-body architecture, adding a six-speed automatic transmission to the existing engines would not have been feasible.

No other updates are scheduled for the 2012 model year as of this writing, but we're sure that the Impala will continue to be a fleet queen until a more consumer-worthy replacement arrives.
