Chevy Malibu getting sleeker!

The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu has been undergoing extensive testing in the GM lab.  The engineers of the car have spent about 400 hours with the Malibu in one of its wind tunnels.  They are focusing on the aerodynamics of the vehicle to help improve the gas mileage.  The goal is to make it have the best fuel economy in its class.

The 2013 Chevy Malibu is projected to get about 2.5 more miles per gallon on the highway thanks to the sleeker design.  The result is the lowest wind-drag for a mid-size Chevrolet vehicles in the past 100 years!

Some of the Malibu’s key aerodynamic features that help improve fuel economy include:

  • Outside mirrors designed to deflect wind without interrupting airflow
  • Rounded front corners to help air flow smooth along the sides of the Malibu
  • Shutters in the lower grill opening on select models open and close automatically to maximize aerodynamic efficiency as the vehicle is traveling
