Looking instantly recognizable, the updated model is distinguished by additional chrome trim and restyled 18- and 19-inch alloy wheels.
While the exterior is virtually untouched, the cabin is completely redesigned with higher quality materials and an improved layout. Notable highlights include leather seats, a push button ignition and a MyLink infotainment system with GPS navigation. Moving up to the range-topping Caprice V adds a sport steering wheel, a nine-speaker Bose audio system and a rear seat entertainment system with dual channel wireless headphones.
On the safety front, the Caprice offers Auto Park Assist, Reverse Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Alert. There's also parking sensors, a rear view camera, Hill Start Assist and Trailer Sway Control.
Under the hood, the two engines are available. The entry-level model has a 3.6-liter V6, while the Caprice V has a 6.0-liter V8. Performance specifications were not released but the 3.6-liter V6 will likely produce 285 HP (210 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque, while the 6.0-liter V8 should churn out 353 HP (260 kW) and 517 Nm (381 lb-ft) of torque. Regardless of which engine is selected, both are connected to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The 2014 Caprice will go on sale later this year and pricing starts at $54,490.
