2017 Chevy Malibu in Edmonton, AB
The previous version of the 2017 Chevy Malibu in Edmonton, AB came to the Don Wheaton showroom with a stunning new look and a package that was several hundred pounds lighter than ever before. How much could Chevy possibly offer buyers of its popular midsize sedan for the new model year? As it turns out, the automaker has a few tricks left up its sleeve. Don Wheaton customers will see a new trim grade introduced for the new Malibu as well as some new powertrain components. Other than that, the 2017 Malibu remains the same high-performing, incredibly efficient and well-equipped midsize sedan that was reintroduced to the public last year.
Among the biggest changes made to the 2017 Chevy Malibu in Edmonton, AB is the introduction of the new nine-speed automatic transmission. The all new gear changer has been optimized by Chevy engineers to have shift points set to achieve the best fuel economy possible while still making performance and an exciting ride a top priority. Overall, independent reviews of the 2017 Malibu have been filled with compliments and praises. The sleek and upscale lines of the exterior continue to draw a lot of attention. On the inside of the car, the liberal use of chrome accents and technology help propel the 2017 Malibu to the top of a historically competitive class of the automotive industry. The 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot returns to the Malibue lineup for another year as does the ability to integrate smartphone functionality into the Chevy MyLink infotainment system.
Performance of the 2017 Malibu
Don Wheaton customers that are looking for a little more performance can opt to have a turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine placed under the hood. Not only does this engine push the peak power output to 250 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, but it also brings the new nine-speed transmission to market. The more powerful engine is still able to produce some fairly impressive fuel economy scores of 10.7 L/100 km in the city and 7.1 L/100 km on the highway. Also, independent sources have clocked the 2017 Malibu racing from zero-to-60 mph in fewer than 6.5 seconds, which puts it right in the meaty part of the curve for its class.
