2021 Chevrolet Malibu should be fully redesigned model, as the first one after the years of the existence of the current version. As the experts expect, it should bring major changes in literally every part of the vehicle. It should be driven on the new platform, obviously slightly bigger than before, it also should have a new design and updated parts on the chassis.
The cabin offers larger space and updated technology, while the engine should be upgraded or at least fulfilled with another model as optional. When it comes to the price, it should not be significantly different from last year model.
- The model is made on a new, modernized and upgraded platform.
- There are changes in engines.
- There are no much differences from other models in the class.
- The technology in the cabin has not been clearly described yet.
Not only that design of 2021 Chevrolet Malibu comes as significantly changed, but the model runs on the new GM VSS-F platform. As the opposite of the old one, GM E2, this platform offers large space, new features, changes in technology and new design. It is expected that the major design continues as a mid-size sedan, with larger space in the trunk and comfortable cabin.
Although the design should reach the level of the Mazda 6 or Subaru Legacy, it is for sure that it will have similarities with the Ford Fusion, too. For future buyers is good to know that the model will not be changed to unrecognizable.
The cabin in 2021 Chevrolet Malibu also brings great changes and upgrades. It should come with a great infotainment system, visibly upgraded from the last model, that Toyota Camry will shame of. The current infotainment system, pretty much acceptable for the average buyers if you ask us, now is upgraded and modernized, with the addition of the luxury, comfort, and convenience that Chevrolet models have always been known to. However, space again does not lack in this model, since the cabin offers plenty of space as for the driver, as well for the passengers and cargo space. Expect changes in design, especially in details.
Although the engines in previous models have been perfectly strong for the car like this, 2021 Chevrolet Malibu offers great changes in this version. It should have 1.4-liter or 1.5-liter four-in-line petrol engine in the standard version and 2.0-liter turbocharged engine in higher trim.
Both engines should come paired with the nine-speed automatic transmission as the only option. The current model did not have that option, but this Malibu could come with the all-wheel driving system as an option.
2021 Chevrolet Malibu Release Date and Price
2021 Chevrolet Malibu brings large updates and changes, bringing great differences in term of the design and speed. However, the model should continue with the running in the middle part of the class, representing a small sedan vehicle for the favorable price and strong engine. Surely the price of $22,000 for base model justifies that place on the list and all changes we saw above.
Releasing date is not clearly shared by now, leading to the manufacturer an opportunity to change something else before that happens. On the other hand, it is possible that markets all over the world, like Asia, Middle East, USA, and Canada will get the vehicle at different time. The model itself will make a factory in North America.
