Chevrolet has confirmed it will offer a third version of the 2013 Malibu, offering a turbocharged performance model that will join the new 4-cylinder and eAssist Eco hybrid model. The announcement was made today at the press launch of the new Malibu Eco model, in Austin, TX.

While not official, it’s believed the engine is a version of the new turbocharged 4-cylinder that will also find its way under the hood of the Cadillac ATS. That said, and considering segment rivals like the Hyundai Sonata Turbo, look for power around the 270-hp mark.

The Eco model with GM’s eAssist hybrid system will launch first, with 182 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque while achieving 25/37 mpg. Later in 2012 the Malibu will receive a base 2.5-liter 4-cylinder with a solid 190 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque – fuel economy estimates for this model have not yet been given.
