Redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Gets $23,150 Price
By Dale Jewett
The redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu sedan carries a base sticker price of $23,150 including shipping charges. That is a $280 increase over the previous-generation 2012 model.
The 2013 Malibu will be offered in four trim levels: LS, LT, Eco and LTZ.
A mild-hybrid version of the redesigned car, the Malibu Eco, has been on sale for several months. It carries a sticker price of $26,095 including shipping charges. At the top end, a 2013 Malibu LTZ, with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, will have a price of $30,925.
The 2013 Malibu with the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engines goes on sale this summer. The turbo version arrives in showrooms in the fall.
Standard equipment in the base 2013 Malibu includes a six-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, stability control, air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, power windows and locks, and a tilt and telescoping steering wheel. The base 2.5-liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine is rated at 197 hp.
Options on higher trim packages include forward-collision warning and lane-departure-warning systems, leather trim and high-intensity-discharge headlamps.
The new Malibu's price is higher than that of redesigned versions of some competing sedans also just reaching the market. The 2013 Nissan Altima carries a base price of $22,280 with shipping charges, while the 2012 Toyota Camry stickers at $22,815 with shipping charges.
Most people don't care about care looks. They want an appliance to get them from point A to point B. Sales have absolutely ZERO correlation to what is attractive. You have stated multiple times that most people do not do their homework when purchasing an automobile. I agree with you on that. Look at the Corolla for proof.
I never put you down. I simply stated my disappointment in your decision to back down from the real discussions to play with the unfortunate rise in the troll population. I actually tried to help you look less foolish. If you dont' accept that, then there is nothing more I can do for you.
I am not sure which parts you think are incorrect, the Camry outsells the m
Malibu and I have to assume that the Altima does as well since I see very few Malibus on the road around here (unless they have rental car sticker on them), but see a lot of Altimas.
Who is rated as having poorer quality than GM?
Your putting me down doesn't make you you any better than anyone else on here, sorry.
unlike the ugly Camry and Accord.
"...certainly not as nice looking as the Altima OR the Camry (sales figures back that up)."
I didn't realize that sales figures were statistical proof of which models are better looking. Thank you for providing us with that bit of information.
And thank you for providing sentence after sentence of miss information. That was fun to read.
I think the trolls are starting to rub off on you. They have certainly turned you into a fool which was all they were trying to do in the first place. I can't believe you let them win. I remember when you used to provide quality and interesting arguments which were backed by FACTS and credible sources. But no longer. I tried to warn you about that. But oh well.....have fun arguing with your new friends.
On top of that, GM has the worst quality rating in the world right now and has the nerve to charge MORE for this than the higher quality, nicer looking competition??? I am blown away by the constant poor decisions that GM makes, it's no wonder the number one auto maker in the world could not survive two slow years of sales without begging for help. If they had even half of a brain they would close down the factories, kick the UAW to the curb and restructure from the top down with non union workers and focus on quality instead of quantity.
