There’s no secret here, just the hard work of Chevy engineers, who painstakingly designed the Malibu ECO’s exterior to be nearly as aerodynamic as that of the groundbreaking Chevrolet Volt. As just one example of their work, the Malibu ECO will showcase the first use of electronically controlled lower-grille shutters in the mid-size segment. The shutters stay open for improved engine cooling during low speeds or when the car is under a heavy load—such as when it’s traveling uphill—then close at highway speeds to help the Malibu ECO slice through the wind more efficiently.
““The Malibu ECO is a smart choice for customers who want excellent fuel economy without the price premium of popular hybrid sedans,” said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “It exemplifies Chevrolet’s drive to use technology that delivers high-value, gas-friendly performance.”
The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu ECO will introduce the completely redesigned Malibu family to the U.S. market early in 2012, with the rest of the lineup expected to reach dealerships in the summer of next year.
