However, all of that camo may be more deceiving than necessary. Despite the upcoming mid-cycle refresh, the 2019 Malibu is likely to only receive minor tweaks to the exterior design.
Expect the 2019 Malibu to potentially don updated lights, bumpers and other subtle tweaks. We expect the interior design to remain relatively unchanged. The same can be said for the powertrains as well. GM most recently added its latest nine-speed automatic to the Chevrolet Malibu, which leads us to believe significant changes won’t be found with the refresh.
If anything, additional technology and other active safety features may be the 2019 Malibu’s calling card.
The current Malibu, while competitive, has gone somewhat unloved as consumers flock to crossovers and other SUVs. Still, GM is holdings its ground and the Chevrolet brand remains one of the only names to offer a vehicle among every single segment in the business.
