Would it be worthwhile to get a 2013 Chevy Malibu Eco in Chicago? Absolutely!

Getting up to 25 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway, it’s hard to see where you can go wrong with Chevy’s newest offering of its most popular sedan. Chevrolet of Homewood has all the latest rumors on this powerful eco-friendly car, so don’t wait, stop by today!

2013 Malibu Eco Technology and Features

The Malibu Eco’s impressive technology contributes to a lot of the mileage the car can achieve, and not one bit of energy goes to waste. The regenerative braking technology captures any lost energy during braking and recycles it right back into the system, minimizing the amount of time you have to spend recharging the 115V Lithium-ion battery. It’s effectively recharging itself while you’re in the process of driving.

It’s powered by a combined 2.4L gas-electric I4 engine and operated by a 6-speed automatic transmission. The traditional gas engine is a direct injection engine able to generate 182-hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. Because the engine has variable valve timing, you will see consistent acceleration and won’t feel the“gear jerk” reaction you normally would get from traditional automatic transmissions. The 17-inch aluminum wheels also help improve the efficiency and drivability of the vehicle.

Not only does this eco-friendly family sedan get good gas mileage, but it’s incredibly safe. Equipped with Stabilitrak, the car’s trademark electronic stability control applies proper braking and reduces the engine in the event of slippage. As soon as the car detects its gone off the path, Stabilitrak kicks in, allowing the driver to keep control of the car at all times.
