Did you know that in 1964, a British firm named Leyland Motor Corp., challenged the United States blockade of Cuba by selling 450 buses to the Cuban government? In the same year, The Beatles kicked off the “British invasion” of America when their song “I wanna hold your hand” landed No. 1 spot on the U.S. singles charts, a first for the popular band.

It was also a good year for the middle class as the economy had fully overcome the hardships of war and people had money to spend. Who could blame them, when a gallon of gas cost 30 cents and a movie ticket sold for $1.25? It was the perfect timing for GM to introduce the Chevrolet Malibu.

Chevrolet Unveils 2014 Malibu with Cosmetic, Space and Engine Tweaks

When an automaker releases a facelift for a model that has only been on the market for less than a year, it means it’s not happy with the way the public and the press alike received said car. This is the case with General Motors and the 8th generation Chevrolet Malibu that was introduced in the States in the second half of 2012.

General Motors rushed to update the Malibu for the 2014 model year with some light styling changes, while also improving interior space, and tweaking its powertrains and chassis.

It's no secret that General Motors hasn't really been happy with the lukewarm reception of its latest Chevrolet Malibu sedan, nor that it is planning to do something about it by ushering in an early refresh later this year.

It’s no secret that the Chevrolet Malibu compact saloon hasn’t been received as well as GM hoped for, be that by the automotive press or the consumers.

Normally, automakers present a mid-cycle update approximately three to four years after the launch of a new model. If a refresh comes earlier, this means that a car manufacturer is disappointed by the way it has been received by consumers, the media or both.

Such was the case with the 2012 Honda Civic that received a makeover only 18 months after its conception, with the 2013 model making its official debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show last week.

Honda isn’t the only company to go down this road as General Motors is also planning to revamp one of its newest entries in the market, the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu.
