Revised 2014 Chevrolet Malibu Starts from $22,965

The cosmetically and mechanically tweaked 2014 Chevrolet Malibu sedan will arrive in U.S. dealerships this fall with a starting price of $22,965, including an $825 destination charge, for the base model with a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine, GM announced on Wednesday.

That’s an increase of $155 over the 2013 Malibu LS, though, GM currently offers a $3,000 cash-back promotion. On the other hand, the 2014 model adds a standard stop/start system that helps improve its city fuel ratings by 3 mpg, or 14 percent on Malibu’s entry-level 2.5L model.

The 196hp and 186 lb-ft (253 Nm) 2.5-liter powertrain also gains valve-actuation technology known as Intake Valve Lift Control, and a new six-speed automatic transmission named 6T45, both of which contribute to improved fuel economy, with GM quoting an EPA-estimated 25 city mpg and 36 highway mpg

Other changes found on the 2014 model include a restyled front end, new seats that help increase rear knee room by 1.25 inches (31.7 mm), interior upgrades and a re-tuned chassis.

Besides the 2.5-liter inline four, the 2014 Malibu will also be available with an improved 259hp 2.0-liter turbo unit and with an eAssist 2.5L engine for the Eco version, with pricing to be announced.
