Redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu costs $23,150

Thu, 21 Jun 2012

The redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu sedan carries a base sticker price of $23,150 including shipping charges. That is a $280 increase over the previous-generation 2012 model.

The 2013 Malibu will be offered in four trim levels: LS, LT, Eco and LTZ.

A mild-hybrid version of the redesigned car, the Malibu Eco, has been on sale for several months. It carries a sticker price of $26,095 including shipping charges. At the top end, a 2013 Malibu LTZ, with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, will have a price of $30,925.

The 2013 Malibu with the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engines goes on sale this summer. The turbo version arrives in showrooms in the fall.

Standard equipment in the base 2013 Malibu includes a six-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, stability control, air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, power windows and locks, and a tilt and telescoping steering wheel. The base 2.5-liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine is rated at 197 hp.

Options on higher trim packages include forward-collision warning and lane-departure-warning systems, leather trim and high-intensity-discharge headlamps.

The new Malibu's price is higher than that of redesigned versions of some competing sedans also just reaching the market. The 2013 Nissan Altima carries a base price of $22,280 with shipping charges, while the 2012 Toyota Camry stickers at $22,815 with shipping charges.

Redesigned versions of the Ford Fusion and the Honda Accord go on sale this fall. Prices for those vehicles have not yet been announced.
