The brand-new, completely redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu will go on sale this summer with a starting MSRP price of $22,390, representing a bump of $280 over the entry cost of the 2012 model. Yet that minor increase will include a major injection of style and value, even in the base Malibu, and Chevy also is boosting its lineup with the introduction of the brand’s first turbocharged Malibu, slated to arrive in the fall.
And remember, the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco, with its eAssist mild-hybrid system, is already on sale, meaning potential Malibu motorists will have a choice of three different powertrains when the car’s full lineup takes the field.
(Note: Just to be clear, Chevy dealers are currently offering both the 2012 Malibu—the No. 1 midsize sedan in the recently released J.D. Power Initial Quality Study—and the 2013 Malibu Eco, which launched early to show off its extra-efficient eAssist technology. Also, these prices and the ones to follow are without factoring in a $760 destination charge that remains unchanged for the new model year.)
