2013 Chevrolet Malibu Priced From $23,910

June 21, 2012

General Motors launched the new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu sedan in its most fuel-efficient form earlier this year, the Eco model. Now it has announced pricing for the other powertrain and model trims with a base price of $23,910 including a destination fee of $760.

Joining the Eco trim level is the LS, LT, and LTZ models. The base LS Malibu is powered by a 2.5-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine rated at 197 horsepower. Stepping up to the LT trim level bumps the price to $25,525, and the top trim level LTZ with the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine rated at 270 horsepower is priced from $31,005.

All Malibus are front-wheel drive with no all-wheel drive available. While the only transmission choice for now is a six-speed automatic, we wouldn't be surprised to see a six-speed manual transmission offered with the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder at some point in the future.

The 2013 Malibu includes 10 standard airbags along with an available rear view back-up camera. A forward collision alert system and lane departure warning will be available on some models. It has been named a top safety pick by the IIHS and earned a 5-star overall vehicle score from the NHTSA.

While the base price of the Malibu has increased by $280 over the previous generation, the price of the top-tier LTZ model has actually decreased from the last generation model.

Stay tuned for our first driving impressions of the base powertrain and turbo four-cylinder. In the meantime you can read our first driving impressions of the Eco model.
