Folks, GM has gone on and released the first official photos of the 2013 Chevy Malibu ahead of its official unveiling at Shangai and New York Auto Shows next week.
While the photo (or rendering) above — in LTZ trim — was the only shot of the exterior, it still reveals plenty of the all-new mid sizer — and boy is it a beauty. The latest embodiment of Chevy’s twin-port grille is present and accounted for, as are swept-back multi-element headlamps, broad shoulders, and a slightly rising beltline as one gets to the rear of the vehicle. Other items of interest include the turn signal indicators embedded in the wing mirrors along with the metal trim surrounding the greenhouse.
And since GM has already teased us with a somewhat disguised shot of the rear, we already know that it will sport a set of two lights similar to those found on the fifth-generation Camaro, which itself will receive a few upgrades for the 2012 model year.
The General also released a single interior image of the 2013 ‘Bu — and it looks like it will sport a fold-up touchscreen (powered by Chevrolet MyLink) with a storage compartment behind it.
The GM Authority Take
This. Car. Is. Gorgeous.
And we can’t commend Chevy enough on a job well done in creating a significant amount of buzz for the new ‘Bu. From the use of social media, teaser images, and spy videos, this is one of the best unveiling efforts in auto history.
