2011 Chevrolet Malibu V6

Since its introduction as an all-new model for the 2008 model year, the Chevrolet Malibu has continued to earn praise from consumers, automotive critics and industry experts. Malibu was recently named a Best Buy by Consumers Digest for the second year in a row, and a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for 2010.

More importantly, the proof of Malibu's success is on the road, because consumer demand for Malibu has been steadily increasing. Since its launch, Malibu has doubled Chevrolet's share of the fiercely competitive midsize car market, and average transaction prices have climbed almost $3,000. Sales were up 39 percent in the first quarter of 2010.

Malibu's 2011 model year changes include:

  • The fuel-saving six-speed automatic transmission is now standard on all models; previously it was only available on the LT and LTZ models. Malibu no longer offers a four-speed automatic.
  • TAPshift manual shift control now standard on all models.
  • 17-inch bright finish aluminum wheels are standard on Malibu 1LT.
  • 18-inch Chrome Tech aluminum wheels are included in Malibu 2LT V-6 package.
  • OnStar 9.0 hardware, which offers improved voice recognition and six months of uplevel Directions and Connections service including Turn-by-Turn navigation, making Malibu the only midsize car that offers standard navigation service.

The 2011 Malibu is offered in three well-equipped trim levels: LS, LT and LTZ - all with a standard, fuel-efficient, four-cylinder 2.4L Ecotec engine and six-speed transmission that deliver 33 mpg highway. A 252-horsepower 3.6L V-6 is available on 2LT and LTZ models. Chevrolet expects that about 60 percent of customers will choose either the 1LT or 2LT model.

Also standard on all Malibu models are four-wheel anti-lock brakes; StabiliTrak electronic stability control; AM/FM stereo with CD player and MP3 playback; XM Satellite Radio; OnStar 9.0 with six months of Directions and Connections service and Turn-by-Turn Navigation; power height driver seat adjuster with power lumbar; Remote Keyless Entry and cruise control. A compact spare tire and jack assembly are available on all models.
