2013 Malibu On The Way To Chevy Dealerahips

The first shipments of the all new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu just left the factory and are on trucks headed to Chevy dealership throughout the States.

One of the objectives General Motors had with the new 2013 Malibu was to beat the 2013 Ford Fusion to dealerships, which are scheduled to arrive late summer or early fall.

Initial Malibu models will be the Malibu ECO, which feature’s GM’s eAssist. Power will come from a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine rated at 182 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. It’s supplemented by a 15-hp electric motor that provides added power during acceleration. The eAssist system also captures energy while braking and restarts the engine during eco start/stop.

The Fairfax plant has produced more than 1.4 million Malibus since 2003. It operates three shifts and has more than 4,000 employees, making it the largest manufacturing employer in the Kansas City area, according to the Kansas City Business Journal.
