2008 CHEVROLET MALIBU
General Motors says the all-new 2008 Chevrolet Malibu delivers great performance, fuel economy and refinement, wrapped in a clean, tailored design that carries the new face of Chevrolet.
The new Malibu is based on GM's global midsize platform, it is more than 3 inches longer than the outgoing 2007 model, with a 6-inch longer wheelbase. These proportions create a wheels-at-the-corners stance that should enable a smoother, more direct driving experience.
Malibu is offered in three trim levels: LS, LT and LTZ -- all with standard head-curtain side airbags and front-seat thorax airbags, OnStar Gen 7 with remote diagnostics, and XM Satellite Radio. StabiliTrak stability control is standard on LT and LTZ models.
Performance comes from dual-overhead cam four- and six-cylinder engines, including a 2.4L Ecotec DOHC four-cylinder engine and a 3.6L DOHC V-6 with variable valve timing. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard with the V-6 and will be available later in the model year with the 2.4L four-cylinder LTZ.
The interior features a flowing instrument panel with a Chevrolet-signature dual-cockpit design. The auxiliary in-dash storage compartment on the instrument panel is handy for sunglasses, CDs and other items. An available rear power center provides a household-style 110-volt AC power outlet.
