The new engine of Chevrolet Malibu LTZ

The popular, award-winning Malibu 2008 by Chevrolet offers an expanded area of customer choices for this spring, with the efficient four-cylinder/six-speed automatic mix offered on LTZ units.

A 2.4L Ecotec engine’s partnered with a 6T40 transmission delivering a great balance of performance and efficiency of fuel. The EPA-estimated fuel economy for this mix is 22 mpg in the city plus 32 on the highway.

The all-new Malibu LTZ unit has a MSRP of $26,245 (that includes a $650 destination charge). It joins some already diverse Malibu models lineup, ranging from the value-driven LS to the strong V-6 LT and LTZ units, as well as this unique, fuel-saving Malibu Hybrid.

“Matching the 2.4L engine with a six-speed delivers a lively driving experience that is unlike any other four-cylinder in the segment,” said Peper. “The unique performance characteristics of the six-speed transmission enhance the feeling of a quieter, more refined driving experience”.
