Dec. 22, 2012 - PRLog -- At Stark Stoughton, a local Madison, WI area Chevy dealer (http://www.starkstoughton.com/), they love selling top-rate vehicles to their customers that showcase the latest in technology. For decades, Chevrolet has made a staple of being known as one of the most recognized car manufacturers in the world, and Stark Stoughton is proud to offer their new, groundbreaking models.
Chevy vehicles have a high reputation for reliability, innovation, stunning design, and high performance. Stark Stoughton has announced that all these qualities come together in the new turbocharged engine for the 2013 Malibu Turbo.
The new engine showcases the company's passion for fun and realistic driving environments. The GM global vehicle performance manager Mark Meyers states that the new engine will reveal to drivers how "capable the new Malibu is”, and goes on to say that it's "perfect for customers who want a midsize sedan that is fun to drive under a wide range of real-world conditions."
With powerful turbo speed the Malibu’s new engine can go from 0 to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds, and achieve a max speed of155 mph. It produces 259 hp while saving a lot of gas relative to such high-performing vehicles, with a 21 city mpg and 30 highway mpg EPA-estimated fuel economy.
Driving conditions differ day to day, and that's why the turbocharged engine helps in maintaining a quality ride in any environment. The Malibu has noted handling and response, and while most four-cylinder engines have an annoying buzzing sound, the turbo engine silences this Malibu for a more enjoyable ride.
Other safety and performance features the 2013 Malibu Turbo will offer are a four-wheel-independent suspension system, hydraulic ride bushings, and premium electric steering gear. Meyers states that the Turbo has a strong structure, steering and suspension that's of high caliber, and four-wheel disc brakes. He says that all together they make the Malibu feel “responsive.”
Stark Stoughton wants to ensure that every vehicle sold has at least one quality of the Chevy attitude: that driving is fun, and high performance isn't limited to the racecar drivers.
