Chevrolet Malibu I 1997–present
Current Base Price: $22,270
The Malibu name returned to the Chevrolet lineup after a 14-year hiatus, becoming a front-wheel drive, midsize 4-door sedan powered by either a 150-horsepower 4-cylinder engine or a 155-horsepower V6 engine. The sixth-generation Malibu debuted for the 2004 model year and added an extended 5-door version dubbed the Malibu Maxx, and a few years later added the 240-horsepower Malibu SS. In 2008 Chevrolet introduced the seventh-generation Malibu, the first to be built on the General Motors global midsize platform. The current Malibu — the model’s ninth generation — arrived for the 2016 model year with a mid-cycle refresh taking place in 2019. Currently the Malibu is offered in a range of trim levels with two turbocharged powerplant available. Chevrolet has announced this will be the last generation of Malibu, with production slated to end in 2024.
