Given current and future proposals for Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards it probably isn’t surprising that General Motors is focusing on gas mileage when it comes to new product offerings.

Having launched a spate of new passenger cars recently, including the Cruze and Sonic, GM is now turning its attention to trucks, with new full-size pickups due in 2013 for the ‘14 model year, followed shortly by big SUVs and a small crossover for GMC, known as the Granite.

In an effort boost fuel economy, in order to come into line with the 35.5 mpg CAFE regulations, its likely the new generation of big trucks will feature GM’s new eight-speed automatic transmissions as well as turbocharged engines and eAssist light hybrid technology.

Besides the trucks, other new vehicles in the pipeline include a baby Cadillac, the new ATS, along with a XTS sedan, as well as new vehicles for Chevrolet, such as the Korean built Spark mini car and the updated 2013 Malibu mid-size sedan.

Chevy has just released a revealing teaser image of its next-generation Malibu sedan, with the car officially set to debut at the Shanghai Auto Show on April 18th.

Coinciding with that debut, Chevy will release full details and photos on its Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/chevrolet.

With styling inspired by the Camaro, the new Malibu will be a global car, sold in 100 countries. It will also do away with a V6 option, instead opting for 4-cylinder powerplants only (as we reported back in August). That being said, expect to find GM’s turbocharged 4-cylinder model to replace the V6.

“This Malibu takes Chevrolet’s established and award-winning nameplate to new places and introduces it to new audiences around the world,” said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet. “Whether the Malibu is sold in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, or Australia, it has been engineered from the ground up to meet the needs of customers around the world.”

GM is hoping to build off the success of the current Malibu, which racked up 40 awards since 2008 and which held the title of being GM’s best selling car last year.

In addition to the Shanghai reveal, the car will also be on display days later at the New York Auto Show.
