More efficient, powerful powertrains
An all-new Ecotec 2.5L Ingestion Valve Raise Controller DOHC four-cylinder locomotive with aim injectant is the 2014 Malibu’s received locomotive. Its varying inlet valve propulsion enhances efficiency and helps glower emissions, piece too enhancing low-rpm torsion, for a greater touch of powerfulness at lour speeds. When the iVLC organization operates in low-lift way, the locomotive pumps lone the air it necessarily to fulfill the driver’s ask. The organization switches to high-lift style at higher speeds or below big piles, providing the total turnout potentiality of the locomotive.
New scratch/blockage engineering shuts polish the 2.5L locomotive to relieve fire when the Chevrolet Malibu boodle momently, such as at stoplights, tributary to an estimated 5-percent increment in metropolis fire thriftiness. The locomotive mechanically starts again when the driver takes his or her substructure off the bracken. An supplementary bombardment powers galvanic accessories such as the clime arrangement, powerfulness windows and tuner during locomotive restarts.
The new 2.5L is SAE-certified at 196 h.p. (145 kW) and 186 lb-ft of torsion (253 Nm). Revised transmittal sack points and faster shifts too raise the impression of operation – patch delivering greater nicety.
Additionally, the 2014 Malibu’s uncommitted 2.0L turbo locomotive delivers nigh 14 pct more torsion than its forerunner. It is SAE-certified at 295 lb-ft (400 Nm). New locomotive standardisation and tuning bill for the betterment, devising the Chevrolet Malibu 2.0L turbo’s torsion the outdo in the section, eve among competing six-cylinder-engines. The resultant is a stronger notion of speedup from a occlusion and a greater impression of exponent on postulate in virtually all impulsive weather.
The 2.0L turbo too produces an SAE-certified 259 h.p. (193 kW).
Anatomy and abatement updates divine by the all-new 2014 Impala too lend to the 2014 Malibu’s more elegant drive receive, including rally springs that are interior to the struts. They enable more processed standardisation of the dampers for a sander boilersuit bait, piece too up eubstance paradiddle controller and slant transportation during quickening or turn. That helps support the wheels deep-rooted, conducive to a more accurate, controlled feeling – particularly spell cornering.
Fuel-saving wattage rack-and-pinion variable-effort index steerage is stock and enables most casual low-speed maneuvers and a higher point of direction smell at higher speeds. Revised, higher-effort calibrations for 2014 were engineered to ameliorate the boilersuit direction flavor. Likewise, the Chevrolet Malibu’s brakes has been revised to cater a more convinced flavor.
Extra build restraint technologies admit four-channel anti-lock brakes, full-function grip command, four-corner electronic constancy mastery, electronic bracken forcefulness dispersion, bracken assistance organisation, nook bracken restraint, hydraulic bracken melt help and puff torsion controller.
New Face Subterfuge Zona Alarum and Back Crossing Dealings Awake guard features are offered, adding to the security from a car that standard a 5-Star Boilersuit Fomite Grudge in the New Car Judgment Plan from the Interior Highway Dealings Refuge Governing and a 2013 Top Condom Pickax by the Indemnity Constitute for Highway Condom. Both are the highest ratings potential.
Chevrolet Malibu too comes with 10 touchstone air bags and an useable rearview camera organisation.
