2019 Chevy Malibu Receives Camaro Facelift

Chevrolet has made many vehicles stand out with their remarkable performance. Sometimes the exterior design might not highlight the true value and performance offered for what’s under the hood. That will no longer be the case for the Chevy Malibu. A new front grille will be added to the midsize car, based off the sixth generation Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Undoubtedly, the Camaro is one of the most dynamically designed GM muscle cars of the present era and perhaps one of the most aggressive looking Chevy products. With an angular lower edge to effectively channel air up through the massive grille, this signature Camaro look has been replicated for the latest Malibu. A company that is known for making specialty hoods, AeroNine, has also made their mark on the latest 2019 Chevy Malibu.

AeroNine Makes a Malibu Look Like a ZL1

The current, ninth-generation Chevy Malibu is an incredible midsize sedan, as Chevrolet did make an effort to improve the look of the 2019 Malibu with a facelift. Produced by kit maker AeroNine, the aftermarket fascia gives the Malibu a look very much reminiscent of Chevy’s sixth-generation Camaro ZL1, with a small gap right below the narrow grille opening, which holds the bow tie, known as the Chevrolet logo.

The front end of this body kit package looks just like the front end of the latest Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. The wide lower grille is in between two smaller inlets, each housing vertical LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL). Four UltraSonic parking sensors – two at the midline of the front fascia, and two near the lower lip have been added the AeroNine body kit, and a bold valance style gives the package into an indistinguishable look. While the Chevy Malibu headlights have been retained for the new model year, the upper and lower grille are changed to look like the Camaro ZL1. Multiple items are similar to the Chevrolet ZL1 in fact, like a set of slotted vents with LED trim as well as the bottom of the front fascia with its sporty chin spoiler.

While the current Chevy Malibu is not comparable to the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in terms of high-performance power, that doesn’t mean owners can change the look. The front end design of the supercharged muscle car can be replicated to the front end of the mid-size Chevy sedan with the AeroNine body kit. For those that have a newer Chevy Malibu and want it to share the front end design akin to the Camaro ZL1, this package is ready to add more curb appeal to their Malibu.

Looking for a sedan? Chevy has six options for every kind of budget and expectation. While the rest of the market is moving away from the sedan experience and focussing on the crossover, SUV and pickup market, Chevy is doing the exact opposite. A large reason for their continued success with these vehicles begins with their cost-effective approach of offering new amenities in a vehicle that offers better gas mileage than most non-hybrid vehicles.

Closer Look at the Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu Hybrid

The top two tiers for the Chevrolet sedan vehicles are the new 2019 Chevy Malibu and new 2019 Chevy Malibu Hybrid. The 2019 Chevy Malibu comes with a new look and has been awarded by J.D. Power as the “Most Dependable Midsize Car” based on a survey of 2015 models. Drivers will love the Malibu Premier trim that offers a 250-horsepower 2.0-Liter turbocharged ECOTEC engine that is paired to a 9-speed automatic transmission. The 2019 Chevy Malibu comes standard across all trims with engines that are paired to a continuously variable transmission to help raise fuel efficiency.

The 2019 Chevy Malibu Hybrid also holds incredible gas mileage with the help of the 1.8-Liter hybrid engine that delivers an EPA estimated 49 city mpg. Being a 2017 IIHS Top Safety pick when equipped with the available driver confidence package, many drivers can feel safe and admire this Chevy sedan for many years to come.

“While the U.S. car market continues to shrink as buyers increasingly opt for SUVs and crossovers, it still represents more than 4 million customers and a chance to introduce consumers to GM with entry-level products. As other people are making noise about leaving the car business or thrifting back their portfolio, there’s still business to be had there. It’s just going about the business in a smart fashion. ” says Steve Majoros, Chevrolet’s marketing director for cars and crossovers.

Shifting Sedan Market

Ford is removing their once popular sedan vehicles, except for the Mustang and Focus models, and by 2020 will make 90% of their North American sales without the help of sedans (excluding the Mustang and Focus Active). GM believes in Chevy to keep their sales growing with the sedan market. Chevy has added a sporty Malibu RS trim as part of the midsize car’s 2019 refresh.The 2019 Chevy Malibu RS will begin at $24,995 MSRP (plus destination fee) and lands between the Malibu’s LS and LT trims. The RS is made complete with the front end that holds black accents and a black bow-tie logo, new 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler with dual exhausts.

The Malibu RS is predicted to make up 1/5th of the U.S. sales of the Malibu, Majoros said, and will compete against Sport trims of competitors like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. While there are some companies leaving the sedan market, Chevrolet has customers covered with a wide range of different sedan choices. Though cars sales went down from 46 percent in 2014 to 32 percent of U.S. sales in 2018 according to Chevrolet.

“There’s still volume to be had there,” he said. “We’ve done a nice job about taking a responsible approach to the product. If other competitors are leaving, we’re very happy to pick up that business, and we’ll certainly do that,” -Majoros remarked.
