Chevrolet Malibu Overview

The Malibu began as a trim level for the Chevrolet Chevelle in 1964. In its early days, the Malibu was available in a variety of body styles, including convertibles, sedans, and station wagons. By 1978, the Malibu moved on from the Chevelle lineup to become its standalone model. Over the years, the Malibu underwent several redesigns, reflecting changing automotive trends and consumer preferences. While it began as a rear-wheel-drive vehicle, it transitioned to front-wheel drive in the late 20th century.

The Malibu has been reimagined and relaunched multiple times, with the most modern versions (from the late 1990s onwards) being recognized for their front-wheel-drive layout, refined designs, and improved fuel efficiency. Recent generations of the Malibu have been lauded for their comfortable interiors, technological features, and safety improvements.

The Malibu is currently in its eleventh generation, which was introduced in 2016. The Malibu is available with a choice of two turbocharged four-cylinder engines: a 1.5L engine that produces 163 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, and a 2.0L engine that produces 250 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. It is available with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) or an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Malibu is known for its comfortable ride and spacious interior. It is also known for its fuel efficiency. The 1.5L engine gets an EPA-estimated 29 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, and the 2.0L engine gets an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. The Malibu comes standard with a variety of features, including a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, and Bluetooth connectivity. Available features include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a Bose sound system, and a sunroof.
