2013 Chevrolet Malibu Coupe not in GM’s plans for the moment

Article by Christian A., on October 18, 2011

Although a coupe version of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu was considered for production it appears that the vehicle is dead as GM will not build it. According to Ed Welburn, GM's vice president of global design a Malibu Coupe could be a pretty nice car but it is not in the plans right now. Still, if you want to be positive we might take that ‘right now’ as not dead yet although we believe that the car could achieve some impressive sales.

Furthermore, Michael Albano a.k.a. Chevrolet’s PR chief said that there are no plans at this moment for anything more than a sedan.

So, for the moment we will have to stick with the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu sedan, a car that will be present on almost 100 markets on six continents. For those who don’t know, the Chevrolet Malibu comes with a fuel-efficient 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a next-generation Hydra-Matic 6T40 six-speed automatic transmission.

The engine delivers more than 190 horsepower (141 kW) and 180 lb.-ft. of torque (245 Nm). An Eco version of the Malibu will also be offered and this will be powered by a 2.4-liter Ecotec direct-injection four-cylinder engine delivering 180 horsepower (134 kW) and mated to a six-speed transmission. In addition, GM’s eAssist system will also be present on the car with its 15-kW motor-generator in order to help you increase fuel economy.
