Chevrolet Malibu US pricing

The new 2014 Chevy Malibu will be available in dealerships starting this fall. To be more precise, it will be the first mid-size sedan sold in the US. In terms of fuel consumption, the model reaches 25 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, which means is a 14 % improvement in city fuel economy. The starting price was established at $22.965, including an $825 destination charge. This price though, will not include tax, title, license and dealer fees.

Owners will be able to save fuel by automatically shutting off the engine with a stop / start technology. When the engineer starts, an auxiliary 12-volt battery powers electric accessories like, for example, heating and air conditioning, power windows and radio. This start/stop system will monitor vehicle speed, climate control system operation and also the force the driver applies to the brake pedal, like for example, the stop and go driving. The engineers have also offered valve-actuation technology known as Intake Valve Lift Control into the 2.5-liter engine which will improve considerable the fuel economy.

How it works is that the engine pumps only the air it needs to meet the demand of the driver. This actuation also improves efficiency and helps lower emission level. To transfer the output to the wheels the engineers have offered a 6-speed transmission for the 2.5-liter. This includes improvement that is capable of reducing the energy required to pump transmission fluid that increases fuel economy. More details on the new Chevrolet Malibu will be available soon.
