2013 Chevrolet Malibu
2013 Chevrolet Malibu

New For 2013

The all-new 2013 Malibu, initially available only in Eco hybrid form, can now be had with a base 2.5-liter four-cylinder or an as-yet-untested 2.0-liter turbo four. The base engine is offered across all trim levels; the availability of the turbo had not been announced as of our publication date.


The 2013 Malibu began its slow rollout in early 2012 and now, almost nine months later, is finally a fully launched new model that Chevy plans to sell in 100 markets worldwide. Its exterior design is largely evolutionary, but it’s noticeably sleeker—minus the questionable Camaro-inspired rear fascia—with cleaner lines and a wider stance. Chevy designers would probably like to take all the credit, but the Malibu’s more svelte profile was also influenced by engineers who logged hundreds of hours in the wind tunnel in an effort to improve the vehicle’s aerodynamics. Fresh hardware is under the hood, too, with an all-new 2.5-liter four-cylinder mated to a more-efficient six-speed automatic. There’s also the Malibu Eco with GM’s eAssist system—a lithium-ion battery provides supplemental power—hooked to a smaller 2.4-liter four. Its 37-mpg highway rating is decent but doesn’t come close to that of its hybrid competitors. A 2.0-liter turbo that produces 259 hp rounds out the engine roster. The cabin received an update as well and, although its dual-cockpit style might not be to everyone’s taste, high quality materials abound. On the road, the new Malibu is not a revelation, but its supple ride, confident handling, and well-crafted interior help keep it competitive in the tough mid-size-sedan segment.


Knee, head, side, and front air bags are standard, as are ABS, traction and stability control, and a tire-pressure monitoring system. Options include a lane-departure warning system with a forward-collision sensor and a backup camera. OnStar with crash response is free for six months.

The good news is this: sales of General Motors vehicles were up in the U.S. last month (as we reported yesterday), and GM made nearly a billion dollars of profit in the first quarter of this year. But here's the not-so-good news: that's slightly lower than the $1 billion it made in the first quarter of 2012, and well below the $1.6 billion it made in the first quarter of 2011.
Mahoney And GM Logo
General Motors found itself at the center of a small storm this morning when it was suggested that CEO Dan Akerson’s pay package would grow for 2013. It’s a tiff that otherwise overshadowed GM’s other major move, installing a new Chief Marketing Officer who previously worked for Volkswagen.

Here's a new one: Chevrolet announced that it reduced the MSRP on the 2013 Malibu mid-size sedan, but not for the obvious reason of making it more affordable. Instead, General Motors says that the new prices are a ploy to shake up how the Malibu appears on popular car-buying websites.
Chevrolet Malibu Sketch
Chevrolet's development of the 2013 Malibu was interrupted during the General Motors bankruptcy, North American president Mark Reuss conceded in an interview. The 2014 Impala's development came after the bailout.
2013 Chevrolet Malibu Turbo Front Three Quarter In Motion 2
If the newly turbocharged 2013 Chevrolet Malibu proves anything, it's that people at Chevy have figured out how to subvert the Office of Management and Budget. The Malibu turbo's apparent innocuousness would well suit a technocrat, one, for example, who tabulates the effectiveness of government subsidies for a car company like Fisker, and finally recommends pulling the plug.
