2016 Chevrolet Malibu Receives US Price Tag, Starts at $22,500

Chevrolet released official pricing info on the 2016 Malibu, which they consider "the most fuel-efficient, connected and technologically advanced version in the nameplate’s history". So, how much are you willing to pay for that?

If we think about it, it's not about how much you want to pay for the 2016 Malibu, but about the amount of money charged by Chevy to deliver one.

On that note, we want you to know that you can have the entry-level 2016 Chevrolet Malibu L for a starting MSRP of $22,500. Chevy offers the Malibu in five trim levels, namely L, LS, LT, Hybrid and Premier, and as you'd expect, prices go up as you climb the lineup ladder.

However, the starting sticker for the 2016 Malibu is lower than one on the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Ford Fusion and Nissan Altima.

Chevy also tells us that for this minimum price tag, the Malibu comes equipped with "ten airbags, cruise control, push-button start with passive entry and fuel-saving stop/start technology." Under the hood works a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine.

Higher demands mean a steeper price, therefore the LS variant will need at least $23,995 to show up in your driveway. Also, the LT model is evaluated at $25,895, but if you opt for the 2.0-liter turbo mated to an 8-speed transmission, be ready to pay at least $29,495, or $31,795 if your mind is set on the Premier equipment level.

Chevy also tells us that pricing for the Malibu Hybrid will be published as the variant closes in on its launch date, scheduled to take place in April 2016.

Official EPA consumption estimates are not available, but we can tell you one thing or two about the 2016 Malibu's tech game. Besides features like Lane Keep Assist and Front Pedestrian Braking, Chevy is offering the Teen Driver option, which mutes the audio or any device paired with the vehicle when front-seat occupants aren’t wearing their seat belts.
