2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco
We're still waiting for the traditional, naturally aspirated versions of
the redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu to go on sale, but shoppers interested
in the new Malibu can purchase one in the form of the more fuel-efficient
and expensive Malibu Eco. The Malibu Eco shows how promising Chevy's new
midsize sedan is, including its intuitive multimedia system called MyLink.
However, the Eco model's minor mpg Boost might not be worth it financially,
according to Cars.com Executive Editor Joe Wiesenfelder.
New 2013 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ Exterior
General Motors has officially debuted the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu ahead of
its global introduction at the Shanghai Motor Show. The model boasts a
completely fresh design inside and out along with more efficient drivetrain
options. GM says the new Malibu will compete in over 100 markets, though we
have to imagine the vehicle will also be integral to the company's plan to
more than double its sales in China by 2015.
As a result, GM has shortened the Malibu overall, though the vehicle is
both wider and offers more trunk space and more rear legroom than the
previous-generation vehicle. That said, we're told that those back thrones
may be a tight fit head-room-wise for taller people.
Additionally, we understand that in the flesh, the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu
wears more than a passing resemblance to the Lexus GS bloodline, though the
squared-off taillamps are likely intended to draw parallels to the muscular
Unfortunately, those fancy LED pieces will only show up on higher-level LTZ
trims. Up front, designers adapted some of the successful features of the
last-generation car into a more aggressive aerodynamic shape.
Under the hood, buyers can look forward to a more-efficient 2.5-liter
four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. The
direct-injection mill delivers 190 horsepower and 180
pound-feet of torque, though GM hasn't released any mileage estimates at
this point. Hit the jump to check out the full press blast.

2014 Chevrolet Malibu 2LT Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/malibu/2014/?id=32972 Chevy's mid-sized
sedan was redesigned for 2013 but when it hit the market it went
head-to-head with redesigned versions of the Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, and
the Nissan Altima. So Chevy has once again updated the car to make it more
competitive. The base model 2014 Chevrolet Malibu starts at $22,340 with
the top of the line 2LZ costing $29,950.
Does Chevy's updated Malibu have what it takes to go against the heaviest
hitters in the mid-sized sedan segment? The main changes on the exterior
occur upfront with a redesigned grille, different fascia, and different
headlights. For the most part the rest of the body is carried over from the
2013 model year.
Under the hood is an all-new 2.5 liter EcoTec 4-cylinder engine that makes
196 horsepower and
191 lb-ft. of torque. The motor features a start-stop system and
direct-injection. The transmission is a 6-speed automatic. Fuel economy is
rated at 25 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway.

2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/malibu/2013/ The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu
Eco is similar to a hybrid car in the fact that it has 2 different
powerplants. The difference between the Malibu Eco and other Hybrid cars is
the fact that those other cars have the ability to run on electricity alone
whereas the Malibu Eco always uses the gas engine and the electric motor
kicks in to add power. The 2013 Chevy Malibu Eco drives nice, it looks
good, and it is priced competitively at $25,235. The 2.4 liter 4-cylinder
Ecotec engine and electric motor combine to produce 182 horsepower. Fuel economy is
expected to be 26 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway. The Malibu Eco
drives nice and the interior is comfortable. Overall the Malibu Eco is a
great alternative to the other mainstream midsized sedan hybrids currently
on the market.

you can purchase. It comes with a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces a
strong 259 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Of course all of that power hits the

market segment and completes with best selling cars like the Toyota Camry,
the Honda Accord as well as the new Ford Fusion and Nissan Altima. We
recently had the opportunity to test drive the new Malibu turbo in the hills outside of San Francisco. So
how does the new Malibu turbo perform.
