Engine Specs

Edmunds calls the 2017 Chevy Malibu a “bold step forward” and it’s easy to see why; with three engine choices that allow drivers to tailor their drive to suit their needs, the Malibu is designed to make even the most tedious drive the highlight of the day:


The base engine is a 1.5L 4-cylinder DOHC mated to the smooth-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission that delivers up to 163 hp and 184 lb.-ft. of peak torque while providing an EPA-estimated 27 mpg/city and 36 mpg/highway fuel economy.


Chevy also offers drivers a little more boost to their drive with the available 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder motor and 6-speed automatic transmission for as much as 250 hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque and an EPA-estimated 22 mpg/city and 33 mpg/highway efficiency.


Those searching for the ideal balance of power and efficiency will rejoice in the 1.8L hybrid 4-cylinder gasoline/electric engine and automatic two-motor drive unit hybrid transmission combination that promises 124 hp and 129 lb.-ft. of torque while delivering as much as 49 mpg/city and 43 mpg/highway fuel economy in government testing.

9-speed Automatic Transmission

The 9-speed automatic transmissions offers one of the highest numbers of gears currently available, meaning your Malibu is bound to have one of the smoothest rides on the road, all while providing optimum performance despite high fuel economy numbers.

Other Performance Features

  • StabiliTrak: Standard stability control applies the ideal amount of pressure to the wheels to avoid slippage.
