In the coming weeks and months, Chevrolet will enhance the range of its brand new 2013 Malibu with several new models.Following the launch of the mild-hybrid Malibu Eco with a 2.4-liter eAssist engine earlier this year, starting from this summer, GM will add the base LS priced from $22,390 or $23,150 if you include a $760 destination fee (*), along with its better equipped LT and LTZ siblings.
The LS, LT and LTZ are all powered by a new Ecotec 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 197-hp. Chevrolet says it expects these models to return a highway fuel economy in the mid-30 mpg.
Later in the fall, GM will introduce the first-ever turbocharged Malibu model to the range, available in LT and LTZ trims, with prices starting from $26,950 excluding a $760 destination charge.
The turbo model gains a 2.0-liter force-fed four-cylinder unit delivering 259 horsepower and a peak torque of 260 lb.-ft. of torque (353 Nm), which is sustained from 1,700 to 5,500 rpm, allowing for a zero to 60mph (96km/h) sprint time of 6.3 seconds.
