Chevrolet has recently pulled the wraps off the 2014 Malibu this weekend, ahead of its dealership arrival scheduled for this autumn.
The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu is actually a facelifted version of the model which is bringing features like a revised front fascia, additional chrome trim, a prominent grille, new front seats, a modified rear bench with improved cushion material, a longer armrest, two mobile phone holders and some other tweaks, which should put the vehicle back up until the new generation will make its way onto the market. The model is also getting an improved power steering system, braking system and some other tweaks.
The facelifted version of the Chevrolet Malibu is powered by a new 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine, equipped with stop / start, which is producing a total output of 196 HP (145 kW) and it has a peak torque of 186 lb-ft (253 Nm). The unit is mated to a revised six-speed automatic transmission. This version can return 23 / 35 mpg in city / highway (US). Chevy says that the 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine has been also upgraded and it’s now good for 259 HP (193 kW) and 295 lb-ft of torque (400 Nm). Pricing details remain unknown for the moment.
