2016 Chevy Malibu Edmonton AB
Chevrolet’s 2016 model year is shaping up to be pretty exciting. When you have so many vehicles in your lineup, it’s important to update enough of them each year, and this year Chevy is definitely delivering so far. We’ve been promised an all-new 2016 Chevy Volt, which we’ve already covered pretty extensively. But most recently, we found out that there will be an all-new 2016 Chevy Malibu in Edmonton AB before the end of the year, and we couldn’t be more excited about the prospect of an updated midsize sedan.
Chevy has completely redesigned their popular midsize sedan to offer even more style, efficiency, safety and other features than it ever has before. For this model year, Chevy has added 3.6 inches to the wheelbase, and 2.3 inches to the overall length of the car making it not only appear sleeker than previous generations but more comfortable on the inside for passengers and the driver alike.
Engine Specs of the 2016 Chevy Malibu
The specs and features that we’ve already seen for the 2016 Chevy Malibu are incredible. It will become one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles on the lineup with a 1.5L Ecotec turbo-charged engine that sits at 6.4 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway. With the return of Stop/Start technology, the all-new Malibu is able to achieve a low 8.7 l/100km through city streets as well, which is a 6% improvement over the last model.
In addition to being incredibly efficient, the new Chevy Malibu has impressive power as well. That same 1.5L Ecotec engine delivers 160 horsepower with 184 lb-ft. of torque. But if power is more important to you than fuel economy, there is an available engine option for you as well. A 2.0L turbocharged engine that doles out 250 horsepower alongside 258 lb-ft. of torque, and only drops efficiency to 10.7 and 7.4 l/100km city and highway. We can’t wait for the all-new 2016 Chevy Malibu to arrive in our showroom, and we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as it does.
