8th Generation: 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco
Malibu was redesigned again for the 2013 model year as the first global midsize car from General Motors, designated for 100 markets on six continents. The new fuel-efficient yet potent 197-horsepower 2.5-liter Ecotec 4-cylinder engine was mated with a 6-speed automatic to lead the powertrain lineup. A new 2.0-liter Ecotec turbocharged 4-cylinder rated at 259 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque debuted as well. The Malibu Eco included the eAssist system that stored power in an air-cooled lithium-ion battery to provide electrical boost in certain driving conditions to optimize engine and transmission operation.
