2019 Chevrolet Malibu For Sale in Forest Lake, MN


The Malibu competes in the mid-size sedan class, which is very much in flux after years of fierce competition. The Ford Fusion, which was the Malibu’s only domestic competition, has been cut along with every Ford car not wearing a Mustang badge. The Malibu will surely gain some customers from the Fusion’s demise. Otherwise, the competition remains pretty similar. The Malibu competes against the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Nissan Maxima, Kia Optima, Hyundai Sonata and Mazda 6. As is common with mid-size sedans, the Malibu offers great value at the low end and luxury touches at the top-of-the-line. The base trim retails for just over $22,500 and comes packed with standard features and strong fuel economy. The top-of-the-line Premier spoils its occupants with leather seats and wood accents for which other automakers charge thousands more. Measurement wise, the Malibu is about what you would expect from a classic mid-size sedan. It’s wheelbase measures at 111.4 inches while total length comes in at about 16 feet (193.8 inches). Total width is 73 inches even and height comes out to 57.7 inches. Under the hood, you’ll find two gas-powered four-cylinder engines and one hybrid four-cylinder as well.


The Malibu impresses before you ever step foot inside the cabin. Smooth lines travel out from the aggressive, slightly wedge-shaped nose, where the Chevy bow tie is perfectly placed. These bodylines flow through the car to the gorgeous back flank, which is tapered like a coupe while still leaving plenty of headroom for backseat passengers. Available daytime LED running lamps run the show up front, while dual exhaust outlets and LED taillights adorn the rear. Standard paint colors include shades of blue, white, silver, and black; premium colors are red and pearl. Fans of a good breeze will enjoy the available dual pane power sliding sunroof. Wheels are 17, 18, or 19-inch aluminum. You can remain connected to the Malibu from anywhere with the myChevrolet app. This app can serve as a remote key fob – you can use it to remotely start and stop your vehicle, lock and unlock the doors, and even sound the horn. The app tracks your vehicle as well and will help you locate the vehicle, set certain geofences, and receive customized alerts. Also contained in the app are vehicle management tools and owner resources. Chevrolet offers nearly 135 accessories to customize your 2019 Malibu. If there's an accessory you can think of for a mid-size sedan, it’s very likely that Chevy offers it for the Malibu. You can customize almost everything on your Malibu, from illuminated black bow tie emblems on the front and back to Chevy-stamped floor mats. If choosing accessories on your own feels complicated, Chevy offers multiple package options as well. Highlights of the appearance package include gloss tip mirror caps, sport pedals, and a dark chrome grill. With the interior protection package, you’ll get handy accessories like all-weather floor mats and a cargo mat in the trunk. Add all of the accessory and package options together, and you get thousands of combinations available to customize your Malibu.


At this time, the Malibu is offered with three engines:
  • 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with 160 horsepower
  • 1.8-liter hybrid 4-cylinder with 122 horsepower
  • 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with 250 horsepower
The standout of the three is the hybrid, which offers amazing gas mileage for a mid-size sedan. You’ll get 49 miles per gallon in the city and 43 miles per gallon on the highway, with a combined 46 miles per gallon. The super smooth powertrain is silky in its delivery. You wouldn’t know the car wasn’t a hybrid if it wasn’t so quiet. The two combustion engines sandwich around the hybrid. The base 1.5-liter engine provides a stout 160 horsepower, which is plenty for a highway merge or quick maneuver. It’s paired with a continuously variable transmission. This engine achieves miles-per-gallon splits of 29 city/36 highway/32 combined, which is good for the class. The 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gets a powerful 250 horsepower and is paired with an excellent nine-speed transmission. It gets 22 miles per gallon city, 32 miles per gallon highway, and 26 miles per gallon combined. All Malibu models are FWD, so your engine options really depend on your choice of trim. L, LS, RS, and LT models get the 1.5-liter 4-cylinder mill, while the Premier trim gets the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine all to itself. The hybrid is only available on the hybrid trim.
