The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu is loaded with fuel-saving technologies such as Variable Valve Timing, Direct Injection, and stop/start technology:
- Variable Valve Timing is the process of altering the timing of a valve lift event to improve performance.
- Direct Injection is used to highly pressurize gasoline and inject it directly into the combustion chamber thereby improving fuel economy.
- Start/Stop Technology turns off the engine when the car brakes to a full stop and automatically starts again when you step on the gas.
The Chevrolet Malibu’s array of trim levels afford you the option to load your Malibu as you see fit. The base L provides keyless entry and ignition, cruise control, OnStar, and Bluetooth phone connectivity standard. A bump to the LS gives you 16-inch alloy wheels, 4G LTE connectivity, Bluetooth audio, and the MyLink infotainment system. Choosing the LT trim means heated mirrors, an eight-way power driver seat, and rear climate vents. The top-tier Premier trim is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission, 18-inch wheels, driver memory settings, a heated steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a navigation system, ensuring that there’s a Malibu trim perfectly suited to the needs of every driver.
