The 2024 Chevy Malibu brings only minor changes and updates to the Bow Tie’s sole remaining sedan model, falling between the significantly updated 2023 model year and the expected all-new tenth generation debuting with the 2025 Chevy Malibu.
Today, we’re taking a closer look at all the exterior paint colors for the 2024 Chevy Malibu, which dropped two hues from its palette – Dark Ash Metallic (paint code G6M) and Riverside Blue Metallic (paint code GKK) – and is adding one new color, Lakeshore Blue Metallic (paint code GXP), leaving a total of six available hues, as shown here:
|Paint Color||Color Code||Cost||LS||RS||1LT||2LT|
|Lakeshore Blue Metallic||GXP||A||A||A||A|
|Mineral Gray Metallic||G5D||A||A||A||A|
|Mosaic Black Metallic||GB8||A||A||A||A|
|Radiant Red Tintcoat||GNT||$495||-||A||A||A|
|Sterling Gray Metallic||GXD||A||A||A||A|
The 2024 Chevy Malibu offers five out of six available colors as no-charge options on all four trim levels, including the LS, RS, 1LT, and 2LT trims. A single extra-charge hue, Radiant Red Tintcoat, is unavailable on the base LS trim and is offered as a $495 option on the RS, 1LT, and range-topping 2LT trims.
Start of regular production (SORP) for the 2024 Chevy Malibu was originally scheduled for June 21st, 2023, but was delayed until July 27th. The model year carries over the numerous changes made to the 2023 Chevy Malibu, including the discontinuation of the Malibu’s Premier trim level and resultant deletion of the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine and GM nine-speed automatic transmission.
Following these changes, only a single powerplant option remains, the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LFV gasoline engine developing a maximum of 163 horsepower at 5,700 rpm and 184 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to the wheels via a continuously variable automatic transmission, while the only available drivetrain configuration is front-wheel drive.
As GM Authority exclusively reported, GM dropped its plans to sunset the Chevy Malibu next year and instead decided to launch a tenth generation tentatively expected to continue through 2031. The 2025 Chevy Malibu will continue to offer an ICE powertrain rather than going all-electric. It will use an upgraded version of the current Malibu’s GM E2 architecture.
The 2024 Chevy Malibu is produced at the GM Fairfax plant in Kansas, which will also be where the tenth generation is produced.
