The 2016 Chevy Malibu will be officially presented to the audience on April 1st at the 2015 New York Auto Show. Although there is still some time left until the debut, the manufacturer decided to release a teaser image and a video to keep us even more anxious than before. The new sedan is said to come significantly improved, and though both the video and the image reveal very little, it is clear that the new 2016 Malibu will be something special. The sedan didn’t really need a new and complete redesign so quickly, since the current model was presented only three years ago, which means that the company got some big plans with the sedan. Therefore, if you are looking for a new modern, attractive and powerful sedan, it might be wise to wait for this one. The 2016 Chevy Malibu will surely be worth the wait.
Rumors About 2016 Chevy Malibu
Like we said before, the details about the new 2016 Chevy Malibu are kept as a top secret at the moment, so we do not know that much about the new sedan. However, the manufacturer hinted that the new Malibu will be drastically improved. This is a logical move for Chevrolet – the sedan market niche holds some rather tough competition and it seems that the Chevy Malibu didn’t have a chance to show what it really can do. But that will change now, as the new 2016 model is said to be far more impressive and dominant than its current predecessor. Aside from the new looks, the 2016 Chevy Malibu will come with an improved fuel efficiency, more safety gadgets and better performance. Its interior will also be improved, offering more high-tech gizmoes and more space and comfort.
New & Improved Architecture
In addition to all the aforementioned changes, the 2016 Chevy Malibu will also come with a new platform. It will now use a E2XX platform instead of its current Epsilon 2 underpinning. The new platform will provide better support and stability, but it will also shed some weight. Thanks to the lightweight materials it is made of, the new sedan will now weigh 300 pounds less than the current Malibu. It will also come with a four inches longer wheelbase, which will affect its performance, as well as the comfort inside the model.
The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu will come with a brand new design. Of course, we don’t expect it to look completely different, but on the other hand, we are sure it will now look more modern and aggressive. As you can see on the teaser image, the 2016 Chevy Malibu will have a much more fluent and aerodynamic shape. The manufacturer stated that the new model will be well-proportioned, sophisticated, sleek and dynamic. We are really looking forward to it.
Premiere & Release Date
The 2016 Chevy Malibu will have its debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show. The new sedan should be released by the end of this year and we are sure it will attract more buyers than ever before.
