2020 Chevrolet Malibu Release Date and Info

With a spacious interior with creature comforts, a strong 2.0L turbocharged engine,  refined drive quality, fuel economy, 6-footers-friendly fronts seats, and a crisp and responsive 8-inch screen, the new 2020 Chevrolet Malibu is now a fully competitive midsize sedan. Its date of release, even though speculative at the time of this writing, should be expected in May 2020.

While we didn’t find the previous Malibu model likable, we weren’t also particularly enthralled with it, either. It failed to tick some boxes that we considered crucial for a vehicle in its segment, and in the face of so many rivals angling for some recognition, we didn’t find it competitive. Some of the downsides it came with included a cramped backseat and rental-fleet styling made it a bygone by conventional standards.

For 2020 though, Chevrolet has redesigned the Malibu and it now comes sporting various upscale features that will undoubtedly make it a strong contender for the top spot in its class. At a distant you’ll notice its conspicuous exterior design cues that evokes an Audi A7 to some extent with its fauxe-sleek hatchback profile.

The hood has also been tinkered with four-cylinder and turbocharged engines that produce anything in the range of 160 to 250 horsepower. The outgoing model fell short in terms of performance but with the potent powerplants under the hood of the 2020 Malibu, buyers will find it even more appealing now.

Let’s face it though, the segment offers even better alternatives. The fully redesigned 2020 Honda Accord remains arguably one of the most compelling vehicle in the segment in terms of value and interior appointments. Another well-rounded choice for the money is the 2020 Hyundai Sonata. We also take this opportunity to introduce the 2020 Mazda 6, which has for long been underappreciated but packs lots of athleticism and style.

Trims Available – Chevrolet Malibu

This midsize sedan is offered in only four trims: Premiere, LT (1LT & 2LT), Limited LS, and the base L trim model. The hybrid is covered separately, as is the Chevrolet Corvette SS.

New 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Expected to Perform Better than the Competition

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is expected to reach its release date soon. So we have decided to do a little bit more digging around in order to find out more about the upcoming release. One of the things that help us start are the leaked photos of the car. These are in fact spy photos of a camouflaged model which is doing rounds and performing tests. But it is obvious that we have the Silverado 1500 in preparation for us.

The new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is going have a specific update. This is going to help it perform a lot better than the competition. Currently, the most sold truck in America is the Ford F-150 model. And it sales are not going to subside dramatically any time soon.

But there is a crack in the shield of the F-150 that Silverado may manage to exploit. It has to do with the fact that the model is still working with dated technology. And this is the biggest flaws that people can find about the car. This has even resulted in the car losing some of its sales. Furthermore, it has even cause it to deep down a little bit. Nevertheless, the F-150 holds its position firmly. But with the upcoming 2019 Silverado 1500 it may not hold on for so long.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Updates

We have learned about the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 that it will update many of its features in the sake of getting better sales. The 2019 update will see improvements made to the technology of the car. In addition, it will update the platform which the car uses. The vehicle will add all the latest gadgetry that you may look to see in a vehicle like this one and even more than that.

At the same time, the car will also improve upon its competition that is already using some dated appliances. The second important improvement is the usage of a very lightweight platform. The current Silverado actually does not weigh so much. It is actually one of the lighter models in the segment.

However, they are looking to make this car even better. They want to remove as much as excess weight as possible. This will bring to a better output, more fuel efficiency and will generally make this car a very desirable vehicle.

In the wake of this car coming and reaching its fullest potential, we hope to see it as fast as possible. There are certain information that we are still looking for to emerge, though. This will also give us a fuller insight about the car and its possibilities. While we wait, here are the currently revealed information. So, we bring them to you in our review.

What is the Possible Release Date for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500?

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is not going to appear as soon as you expect it. But the car is coming by next year. The vehicle’s showcast is probably planned at one of the major shows. And we even hear rumors of it making its first official unveiling in Detroit. This is where the vehicle will be seen for the first time.

By then we will probably not get any solid information about the release date. And we will probably have to wait a bit to get it. But as we suspected, the car is going to start sales somewhere by the end of 2018 or in the beginning of 2019. More information are going to emerge as things get closer to the vehicle’s actual official showcasing.

Estimated Price of the Car

One of the more favorable parts about the newest 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is that it is going have similar price as the previous model. The platform and the materials of the car are going to stay light. So it will not raise the price of the car so much.

Thus we are expecting to see a similar one in the market. And it will be really beneficial for raising sales and the popularity of this car. All in all, we expect the base model to start at $28,880 as the current one is. But as we see some other more lucrative offers, we will immediately see the price rise as well.

This is going to happen due to the equipment and technology which the vehicle is going to add. Some of it will only be offered optionally. At the same time the other ones are exclusively given for higher trims. The highest trim is the High Country model. And this will probably cost at around $60,000. It will also come with all the bits and pieces you would expect it to have.

Exterior and the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Redesign

Actually, the exterior of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is probably not going to get an extensive aesthetic update. This model is going to have a very similar look as the outgoing model. This does not mean that this car is immediately going to go through a fall in the eyes of the audiences as their plans are a lot complicated than that.

The Silverado got its current form in 2014 and received some updates in 2016. But unfortunately the plan did not work as they were hoping it would and we hoped that it might get better with the update. But the 2019 is supposed to bridge so much of the miscues that were made with the given models as they will probably do a much greater job with it.

One of the thing which we view as important is the lighter materials implemented here. The car will use much more aluminum in the designing of the outer shell of the car which is supposed to make the car a lot easier to drive and bring it more efficiency and better usage.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Line

The all new frame of the car is going to include separate body and frame and will add a live rear axle placed by the leaf spring, which is the part that is not going to change. This also allows the use of rear-wheel drive as standard while the all-wheel drive version will come as optional, also the four-wheel one as well. They are going to employ advanced technology which will help with the trimming of the far and enable to car to reduce as much as excess weight as it could be possible.

As far as the design goes, it is hard to make out what could be underneath all the camo. Some parts are clear to us while the others are going to remain a mystery, but we are luckily not going to have to wait for them all the way till the release date.

The boxy frame is still there and the familiar kind of a design is present. We have spotted the new LED headlights given here and a new front bumper which is going to be more expressive than the one that we had before. The rear part of the car is going to add two exhaust tips which protrude down below.

New Technology Expected on the Inside

The interior of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will add many new elements, but the ones that we expect the most are going to be regarding the technology of the car. Since all of the major rivals are having a dispute with their technology the newest 2019 Silverado 1500 will try to pass the competition by offering a larger and more extensive array of features. The vehicle is going to be equipped far better and will add a kind of an offer which the buyers are going to like and will exploit in a far better way.

We did not have a whole lot to work with as far as the interior goes, but there is a single spy photo taken of the interior which shows us just what we can expect to see on the inside. It appears that the interior is going to have a very similar layout as the current one and will make the center stack and the infotainment screen larger. This is a part of what we have expected to happen as the model will that way expand on even more features which come with it.

The comfort and the materials which the car has on the inside is going to be updated and will make it far more comfortable compared to the other ones in the segment. There are a lot of which we probably do not known here but as part of the update we also expect to get newer hues and color options and some added features which generally make the interior look more appropriate. And as always, the higher the package goes the better the options are and it will make the car a far viable option to have.

Powertrain Options and Ability

The information about the powertrain of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is still a little bit lopsided and we are going to get more information about it in due time. For now we know that the model is going to use two base engine options. The already familiar choice for the Silverado 1500 is the 4.3-liter V-6 variant which is going to be updated and prepared for this new version.

The second engine option is the turbocharged four-cylinder engine which will be used in order to help with the fuel-efficiency of the car. The model will probably combine the given engine and the new type of platform with the enabled lightweight materials so the result will be a much more suitable offer for those who want to save on fuel with the new kind of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

Additionally, a V-8 option is also going to be added which will come in two displacements and give more variability this way. Finally, the transmission choices are going to come between an 8-speed and a 10-speed automatic ones which are going to be used based on the size of the engine.

0-60 mph and Top Speed

Unfortunately, there are no new stats to support the latest 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the specs it is expected to get. The model will certainly have some different acceleration stats which are going to be mainly because of the given changes introduced to the vehicle because of the weight reduction. The current model is capable of reaching 0-60 mph in 7.2 seconds but the top speed will probably remain similar at 99 mph.

Fuel Economy for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is going to update the fuel economy thanks to expected reduction in weight. The current model consumes 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway and we are looking forward for this stats to improve for the model which we are going to see pretty soon.

Size and Dimensions

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is more likely going to retain the same size and dimensions. There were no news about the model gaining more in size and expanding on the current one. They vehicle is 205.5-239.5 inches long, depending on the trim size, the wheelbase ranges between 119.0-153.0 inches and the width is  80.0 inches while the height may wary between 73.5-74.0 inches. On the inside the vehicle offers a passenger volume of 73 cu ft the least or 136 cu ft the most. The overall weight is between 4500-5300 lb.

Safety and New Technology

Safety is yet to be determined for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. All we know is that the car is going to add new technology in order to help with the safety. But the expected and standard features are still going to be present. This will help with passenger’s and the vehicle’s security.

Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and its Rivals

As mentioned already, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is probably going to have a tough job with the rivals. The most expected one that the vehicle needs to face is of course the F-150 from Ford. This has been the most sold truck in America in recent times.

It would be pretty hard to outsell that car and bring a far better offer. Bbut the Silverado is going to certainly try it with some options that they are cooking up their sleeve. Other models in the segment are going to include vehicles as the GMC Sierra 1500. This one is a virtual twin of the current Silverado 1500. But there are also other models as Nissan Titan, Toyota Tundra and Ram 1500.
