When can I see the 2017 Malibu in Edmonton, AB
With all of the attention being given to the latest models of the Chevy Corvette and Camaro, it’s easy to forget that Chevrolet is also a world leader in highly efficient, well-equipped midsize sedans. Specifically, Don Wheaton customers are going to be very excited about the news surrounding the latest Chevy Malibu midsize sedan. The Canadian release date for the 2017 Chevy Malibu is coming very soon. Despite going through one of the most radical redesigns in company history just last year, the new Malibu is going to be full of surprises. Chevy designers and engineers have really put the rest of the class on notice.
What is different for the 2017 Malibu?
Chevrolet engineers and designers have certainly not been sitting on their laurels when it came to the 2017 Chevy Malibu. Among the biggest additions to the new Malibu lineup is the nine-speed automatic transmission as standard equipment on the Premier trim for models featuring the turbocharged, 2.0-liter engine. Technology is also a major focus for changes surrounding the 2017 Chevy Malibu. Buyers of the LS and LT trims will be able to integrate smartphones from Apple and Android into the Chevy MyLink infotainment system. This functionality has previously only been available on the upper trims. Later in the production cycle, the automaker will be including a sport package for the midsize sedan. More information will be available on that later in the model year.
Because the 2017 Chevy Malibu is likely going to be a family vehicle for most buyers, safety is a natural concern. The new Malibu is entering 2017 as a two-time winner in its class for a J.D. Power vehicle dependability study. Furthermore, Chevy has added the Teen Driver system to each trim of the new car so parents can have a little extra peace of mind when their new drivers borrow the car.
Performance specs for the 2017 Malibu
