2015 saw the Tahoe undergo a major surgery that gave it a lease for life. The benefits of the design included a much higher-quality interior, interior ambience, and a significant chunk of new standard features which had been sadly missing over the years.

Under the hood, buyers should anticipate a V8 power able to crank out a whopping 355 horsepower.

Combine that with a low-range gearing and an all-wheel-drive and you’ve gotten yourself a real SUV always ready at your beck and call. When fully equipped, the 2017 Tahoe is capable of a healthy 8,600 pounds towing capacity.

Many rejoiced when the current generation model debuted two years ago. It was appealing in comparison with older rivals in its class; offered a thriftier cabin that came chock full of upscale technologies; and had fuel-sipping engines. For 2017, things have gotten even better. For instance, the 2017 model comes with a diesel engine that not only promises performance, but also saves you some bucks at the pump.

The engine tidbits might not sound so impressive. After all, the output stands at 181 hp. What sweetens the deal, though, is the amazing 369 pounds of torque, which is far more the output you can get with the petrol V6. For starters, that torque means that you handle more towing jobs with your Colorado while still enjoying a stronger and smoother experience.

2019 Chevrolet Malibu

Chevrolet Malibu 2019 Possible Release Date

Recent emerging news about the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu has drawn our attention. The idea of building upon the success which the last model made is quite intriguing to hear and would be a very good choice for the brand. The release date for the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu may be still far away, but it now seems like a fixed point which is much more believable now than it used to be once the inception of this model.

The latest news says that the new 2019 Chevrolet Malibu is going to newest appearance for the end of 2018. It is still early to tell whether this rumor is true but down the line of the year we will be able to see more information and get the latest scoop soon. We can expect to see the vehicle showcased at a major auto show, like they did the last time. So, the release might happen even in mid-2018. We are very much hopeful to see this happen.

Increased Price for the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu

Even though the price of the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu has not been clearly determined, it will most likely see a rise. This means that the increased price of the vehicle will dictate how the car develops. Since many of the people think that we already have a good enough car on our hands, the estimation is that the model is not going to develop so much. Thus a smaller redesign is expected. Generally speaking, the idea behind the update is a good one but now it leads us to believe that it will not affect the price so much. Currently, the outgoing Chevrolet Malibu is sold for $28,645 as base MSRP. We are expecting it to rise at least to 29k as 30k is too much for some based on the estimations.

Latest 2019 Chevrolet Malibu Rumors

When it comes to the rumors about the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu it comes to whether the car will come with a new platform or not. The previous model made great strides with the introduction of the GM’s Epsilon II platform, which it shared with other Chevy products, namely the LaCrosse, Regal and Buick car. It proved to be one of the best ways for the car to improve and it helped the Malibu get an upper hand on the majority of its competition. When it comes to the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu, this might be the newest generation model that we are looking at which would also mean that a new kind of platform may come into play. Based on the latest rumors the people from Chevy are looking into the possibility of making the car more comfortable for people to drive in. There are also some rumors that this might affect the dimensions of the car as well.

What are the Exterior Changes for the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu?

The exterior changes for the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu are not going to be too extensive. As they managed to hit it big with the latest car and the look it has, they are not going to overcomplicate things with the next iteration. This current model is able to boast with a ground breaking design which overturned the sales of the Malibu model and brought it close to the upper echelon of cars in this segment. When it comes to the new one, we are expecting to see some smaller aesthetic changes, but the vehicle will keep the general shape that it has now.

You can expect to see a car with a nose positioned lower and also a stretched out front end of the car. The proportions are going to be dealt with quite thoroughly as they are looking to adjust them to the potential changes that came with the dimensions swap. We are not entirely sure if they decide to go with the dimensions change but if they do it will not be too much. The model will combine elegance and sportiness and there is a great possibility that this vehicle will comply most of the things that the newest Chevy Impala has got going for it. We see this as a true way for the model to advance and get to a larger audience base.

Are New Colors Being Introduced?

One of the things we are expecting to see for the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu is to add a new color pallet. Updating the car is one thing but the car will need to have consistency in order to keep it afloat in the market. Since they are not going to give us a larger overhaul, and they really do not need to do it, we are still expecting to see more prims when it comes to other aesthetics pieces of the puzzle. One of them is the introduction of a new color scheme. You will most likely see the standard set of colors which are available now, while the vehicle will expand that with a few new ones. We are not entirely sure if the plan to make them optional or not, but we are under the impression that they should only be divided between trims and the availability should not be bounded for the customers.

New 2019 Chevrolet Malibu Dimensions?

One of the most important questions for the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu is in regards with its dimensions. The previous model did a very good thing when they expanded the dimensions and retooled the car so it fitted more room and at the same time offered a new kind of ride. People are in hopes that they do the same for the newest model but we think that the vehicle is good enough with the setup that it has now. Thus the dimensional changes would probably be kept for somewhere down the line, but a lot of years down the line in this case. The current dimensions and most probably the ones that we are going to see for the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu amount to 193.8 in length, 73.0 in width and 57.6 in engine, while the wheelbase is limited to 111.4 in. It has enabled to car to gain quite a nice interior with 103 cu ft of passenger volume and 12-16 cu ft cargo space.

Renewing the Interior of the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu

Updating the inside of the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu will not be easy. If they do decide to keep the outside of the car similar style wise, the inside of the car should give us more changes. These are not only going to include a mere update. We can probably hope and see much more when it comes to the interior of the car. The vehicle is sure to give us new kind of materials for the seats and provide us with all new gadgets to improve the comfort for the passengers. The dashboard and the equipment in the front will gain new a new design and a style which goes with the current cars. There are some expectation that we might see additions and changes brought from the current roster of Chevy vehicles. Infotainment and technology is also a big part, so look for the Malibu to add a decent and improved set of technological upgrades to keep us even more entertained while driving.

What are the Engine Specs for the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu?

The nest 2019 Chevrolet Malibu will retool its engine specs as well. These are going to be in terms of the entry level engine which is surely going to be the turbocharged, 1.5-liter, four-cylinder which has a rating of 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The next level one is 4-cyldiner engine that will deliver 197 horses and 191 pound-feet. Standing at the top and also available for the top trims of the vehicle is the 2.0-liter turbo-four model. This one will give the drivers 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet. The stats are consistent with what the current vehicles are giving us and there is probably not going to be a monstrous changes for the time being.

What about the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu Top Speed and 0-60 mph?

With the same set of engines available for the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu the speeding ability stays the same. There is no need to give an upgraded setup in terms of the power for the car. It will stay at around 8 second needed to get to 0-60 mph and a top speed which is limited to 130 mph. All in all, this is not too bad and the vehicle makes a great stride with the given mode.

2019 Chevrolet Malibu Fuel Economy Assumptions

There is no reason to doubt that the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu will have a different fuel economy rating. Sadly, they are not probably going to improve it by much. There are no evidence to support the fact that they are planning a range of changes which will see that the fuel consumption changes. The entry level model will likely 27 mpg city and 37 mpg highway rating and the mid-range one rated with 25 mpg city and 36 mpg highway. The fastest and strongest 2019 Chevrolet Malibu model is going to have an EPA rating of 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. Turbo models may go to 21 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.
