This is your first look at the 2013 Chevy Malibu which was ‘leaked’ late last night on the automaker’s Facebook page – although the image has since been removed.
Looking less dramatically-new than the previously-teased Camaro-styled taillights would suggest, Chevy is hoping to build off the success of this model’s predecessor and has said this new global platform will only be available with 4-cylinder engines. That being said, expect to see a direct-injection 2.4-liter 4-cylinder with around 184-hp, as well as a turbocharged 2.0-liter making over 220-hp.
Chevy has planned to officially unveil the car online next Monday, followed by reveals at the Shanghai Auto Show and New York Auto Shows. Watch the reveal and sing up to be a fan on Chevy’s official Malibu Facebook page here.
