2013 Chevy Malibu Starts Just Over $23,000

GM announced pricing on the 2013 Chevy Malibu last week. The mid-size sedan gets a modest increase of $280, starting at $23,150. That price includes a $760 destination charge. While the base price is a little higher, the upper echelon LTZ models are less expensive than last year.

Fresh off the win in the mid-size class of the J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study (2012 model year), the new Malibu is priced and packaged. The 2013 model has the benefit of the new 2.5-liter Ecotec engine, which puts out close to 17 percent more power (197 hp) than the outgoing engine. The 2.5-liter plant comes standard in the base LS, LT and LTZ trim levels. A 259-hp 2.0-liter Ecotec turbo is optional on the LT and LTZ models.

The Eco trim is equipped with a 2.4-liter Ecotec engine with eAssist. The eAssist system uses a combination of lithium-ion battery and electric motor-generator for regenerative braking, engine start-stop and electric assist. GM says it has an EPA-estimated 37 mpg highway and 25 mpg city. It's the most fuel efficient Malibu ever.

The 2013 Malibu has a strong emphasis on safety, as evidenced by its dual NHTSA 5-Star and IIHS 2012 Top Safety Pick designations. It includes 10 airbags and available rear-view camera system, Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning.

The top level LTZ 2LZ trim with turbo costs $30,925 after delivery fee. It comes with upgrades like Chevy MyLink radio, a seven-inch color touchscreen display, LED taillamps and leather-appointed seats.

GM says that all 2013 Malibus are quieter and roomier than outgoing models. The new Malibu will hit dealerships in August.
