The Malibu utilizes Chevy's ECOTEC® technologies in both of its engine options so you don't have to compromise between performance and efficiency. The standard 1.5-liter turbocharged ECOTEC® engine uses Variable Valve Timing, Direct Injection, and stop/start to promote efficiency while still offering a sporty ride. Drivers who need some extra power will appreciate the 250-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged ECOTEC engine standard on the Malibu Premier.
You can also opt for the Malibu Hybrid to get a wholly unique driving experience. This model uses a 1.8-liter hybrid DOHC SIDI engine to give you the power and fun you need on a sedan with a fuel-saving hybrid engine.
There are plenty of other features that enhance the Malibu's impressive performance. The standard StabiliTrak electronic control system pairs with the Traction Control System to keep you in control on those tough Bolingbrook roads. An available 4.2-inch color Driver Information Center gives you all the information you need to monitor your performance like average speed, fuel range, tire pressure, trip odometer, and more.
