2017 Chevrolet Malibu Redesign — New Generation and Its Changes
A couple of months ago, we sedan. The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu is known as an affordable car. There’s no reason to doubt that the next generation will diverge. Although at this point we don’t know the price of the redesigned 2017 Malibu, various sources claim that the sedan might be a bit more expensive, but its price won’t be drastically different.
New E2XX Platform Will Provide Better Underpinning to 2017 Chevy Malibu
Built on the global E2XX platform, the 2017 Chevy Malibu will have a lot of siblings which share the same underpinning. There’s a big range of different automaker’s mid-size and full-size models that use the E2XX basic architecture. From the Cadillac and Buick models, to the new Opel and Holden cars, the platform is widely used because of its great features. Of course, it’s lightweight as all the modern platforms are these days. However, the fact that it’s been developed in order to replace the Epsilon 2 platform and the Lambda platform, depicts how good the new architecture is. Of course, it has to show its qualities during the time and merciless use, but it seems that this platform is going to be the manufacturer’s pride. Probably the very first model to be built on the E2XX architecture will be the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu.
2017 Chevrolet Malibu Redesign – New Exterior and Style
The appearance of the 2017 Malibu is going to be changed. Although there’s no reliable and precise information about the style change, it’s known that the next generation will look significantly different. The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu redesign will bring a fresh style, but it’s not going to leave the recognizable design language. Needless to say, the new Malibu will look different and modern, but some of the basic styling guidelines will be followed, trying to keep the moniker’s heritage. The body of the 2017 Chevy Malibu will be larger than before. This growth will bring enhanced comfort and more appealing exterior. The automaker had courage to make the new Malibu more like a four-door coupe. Its sexy roofline and long body ooze the power and elegance. Thanks to these particular body changes, the 2017 Malibu redesign made this car look luxurious and upscale. Perhaps a slightly longer wheelbase would improve the comfort, but how they did it is just perfect because of the body shape, since shorter overhangs won’t go well with the Malibu’s new elegance.
Powertrain Options – Changes and Novelties
The powertrain of the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu has to be extraordinary if the car is going to be a whole package. Aside the good looks, the hybrid setup should follow the sedan’s new upscale doctrine.
2017 Chevrolet Malibu Premiere, Release and Price
As we already mentioned, the effects of the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu redesign won’t be seen before late next year at the best. It’s possible that the first specimen of the new generation is going to be introduced in the first months of 2016. Having this in mind, it seems that the 2017 Chevy Malibu won’t be released before the fall 2016. As for the price, it’s really impossible to estimate it at this moment, but in spite all the new features, changes and updates, the base price probably won’t be significantly higher than the entry price of the current model.
