Washington, MI – Designed to deliver more efficiency, connectivity and advanced safety features than ever, the next-gen Chevrolet Malibu will make its public debut at the New York International Auto Show this April!
Using a blank slate approach, Chevrolet designers benefited from an entirely new architecture, which for Malibu, includes a wheelbase nearly four inches longer than the outgoing model. That, in turn, provides increased rear legroom and interior space.
“Chevrolet has earned an impressive lineup of industry awards over the past year,” said Kurt Heidebrreicht, owner of Heidebreicht Chevrolet, Washington. “The upcoming debut of the next-generation Malibu will only continue the brand’s momentum and customer excitement.”
Due to a higher-strength steel structure, the new Malibu is also expected to be 300 pounds lighter than the current model, which benefits the sedan’s fuel economy and handling.
“Malibu’s gorgeous styling is the result of a masterful understanding of proportions,” said Ed Welburn, General Motors’ vice president of Global Design. “The roofline has been stretched rearward giving a more sleek profile, while the front wheels have moved forward and front and rear overhangs have been reduced. Along with the sculpted body side, these cues help Malibu appear even more dynamic and sophisticated.”
The 2016 Next Gen Malibu is expected to go on sale by the end of this year at Heidebreicht Chevrolet, but you can view our 2015 Chevrolet Malibu inventory long before that!
