The forthcoming 2012 Chevy Malibu should begin production late 2011. It looks to be a thorough re-visioning of the Malibu platform with new sheet metal and underpinned by a version of the Epsilon II platform currently used by the Buick Regal and Open Insignia.
The 2012 Malibu is also slated to drop the four-speed automatic and offer only a six-speed offering. This new Malibu should come with either the 3.6-liter V6, a base, but direct injection four-pot, and for drivers who want more power and more mpg, a turbo-charged direct-injection ECOTEC motor to hang with the new crop of Ecoboost Fords. A hybrid power train will also be offered.
A complete interior overhaul is also expected clearing the way for an optional navigation screen.
