2013 Malibu Eco Has Arrived At Jeff Gordon Chevrolet In Wilmington North Carolina
Newly redesigned with cutting edge technology to increase fuel efficiency, the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco is a leading vehicle in the mid size sedan segment.
The all new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco introduces eAssist, cutting-edge technology that makes it possible for the vehicle to conserve power when it’s not needed. With eAssist the new Malibu Eco captures energy that will help support the power train and allow the vehicle to use gas only when needed. This increase in efficiency gives the new Malibu Eco an EPA rated estimated fuel economy of 38 miles per gallon on the highway. With regenerative braking, what would have been lost power during braking is now captured and converted to electricity that helps to keep the lithium-ion battery pack charged. The stored energy is then used to deliver an electric boost to the engine during numerous driving scenarios such as under heavy acceleration or climbing up a steep hill. While the vehicle is stopped the engine also cuts off and the battery-powered generator powers accessories preserving fuel during times of bumper to bumper traffic, stuck at a red light, or coasting down hill. The new eAssist system is engineered for proficiency and gives the all new 2013 Chevy Malibu Eco its boost in mpg.
The exterior of the all new 2013 Malibu Eco has also been redesigned to increase efficiency. With a more aerodynamic shape, an eco gauge, more efficient wheels, and new aero grille shutters the fuel-efficient 2013 Malibu Eco becomes even more fuel efficient. The aero grille shutters guide airflow around the vehicle body, helping increasing fuel efficiency by decreasing resistance. The shutters also electronically close when there is no need for engine-cooling. When engine-cooling is necessary the shutters will open automatically using only electricity. The efficient wheels us low rolling resistance tires making the Malibu Eco drive more effortlessly while using less force, preserving energy and therefore fuel.
The redesign of the all new 2013 Malibu did not overlook the interior cabin. The Malibu offers more passenger comfort and space compared to its predecessors. Interior comfort is also enhanced through ambient lighting and sport-sculptured seats. Acoustic laminated glass and triple door seals help keep noise outside the vehicle and create a quiet and peaceful environment in the passenger cabin.
