Chevrolet Malibu Performance
You’re bound to connect to the Chevy Malibu performance while you’re taking it for a spin at Biggers Chevy. We recommend the Malibu as your next mid-size car for its ability to take charge of the road while still delivering terrific fuel economy. If you want a well-balanced ride that offers a luxurious driving experience, then come in to Biggers Chevy today to meet your match!
Engine Performance and Fuel Efficiency
One reason we recommend the Malibu is due to its ability to adapt to your demands. All engines come with a four-cylinder design and Variable Valve Timing. This system modifies valve timing for higher fuel economy numbers, excellent performance times, and low emissions.
Drivers have their choice of three Malibu engines for a stunning drive:
- A 1.5L turbocharger engine produces 163 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. This engine is standard for the L, LS, and 1LT models. It has an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. This engine has a fuel tank capacity of 13.8 gallons.
- The 2.0L turbocharger engine adds even more kick with its incredible 250 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes with the Premier trim. The EPA-estimated fuel economy is 22 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. Note that the Premier has a larger fuel tank capacity than the other engine with a maximum of 15.8 gallons.
- The Hybrid trim has a 1.8L engine with 124 hp and 129 lb-ft of torque. In the hybrid model, you have an exceptional EPA-estimated 49 mpg in the city and 43 mpg on the highway. The fuel tank can store up to 13.8 gallons.
Transmission and Suspension
The Malibu continues its performance versatility when it comes to the transmission choices. Models come with a 6-speed automatic transmission for seamless handling. However, those who choose the Premium trim truly enjoy a premium feel from a 9-speed automatic transmission.
All Malibu models come in front-wheel drive for simplified handling. We love that front-wheel drive offers an easy and comfortable driving experience for anyone. Furthermore, models come with a traction control system to keep the vehicle’s grip on the road for curves, turns, and more. StabiliTrak Stability Control is similar to traction control, as it keeps the vehicle leveled. Together, these features add up to smooth sailing on every drive.
