The 2024 Chevy Malibu will introduce only minor updates and changes, unlike the 2023 Chevy Malibu that debuted important powertrain changes and dropped the Premier trim level, or the 2019 Chevy Malibu, which introduced the ninth-gen mid-cycle refresh. Prices for the Malibu will remain mostly stable, with only one change.
|Trim Level||2024 MSRP + DFC|
Now, GM Authority has uncovered pricing for the 2024 Chevy Malibu LS, RS, 1LT, and 2LT trim levels. According to our sources, MSRP is unchanged for the RS, 1LT, and 2LT trims, while the base LS trim’s price will rise by $100. Pricing listed in the table includes a $1,095 destination freight charge (DFC).
The LS trim for the 2024 Chevy Malibu mostly retains the same standard equipment from the previous model year. However, it is now equipped with the power-adjustable body-color mirrors (RPO code DL6) instead of the previous power-adjustable black mirrors (RPO code D49).
Additionally, the LS now gets a tire inflator kit (RPO code KT1) instead of the compact spare T125/80R16 tire (RPO code ZAM) with 16-inch spare steel wheel (RPO code SJF) and road emergency tool kit (RPO code V33). The compact spare tire, steel wheel and emergency tool kit are now optional rather than standard.
Start of regular production (SORP) for the 2024 Chevy Malibu is expected to kick off on June 21st, 2023, one day after 2023 Chevy Malibu production ceases on June 20th. The GM Fairfax plant in Kansas City will continue to produce the sedan’s latest model year.
The 2024 Chevy Malibu is not expected to introduce any significant changes, but two paint colors will be dropped from its available exterior tints, while a different color will be added. Dark Ash Metallic (paint code G6M) and Riverside Blue Metallic (paint code GKK) will be removed from its exterior color palette, while it will gain Lakeshore Blue Metallic (paint code GXP) as a no-charge option on all trim levels.
While the 2024 Chevy Malibu occupies an odd place in GM’s lineup as its last Chevy sedan, The General is already planning the launch of a tenth generation of the nameplate with the 2025 Chevy Malibu. The new generation will use the larger D/E variant of the GM VSS-F platform for structure.
The next-gen Malibu could start production as early as 2025 and run through 2031, continuing to roll off the assembly line at the Fairfax plant.
