That's why we want to propose a cooler yet more affordable alternative. It's based on the Malibu, and it's just a rendering. Despite that, Theophilus Chin, the guy who made it, has received a lot of attention for his work. Apparently, people like it so much that they're asking where they can buy one.
Right now, the coolest wagons in America are expensive. We are talking about things like the 2016 allroad that starts at $44,000 or the $37,000 Volvo V60. But American cars have been getting good, no, great. There are a few rotten apples left, but the Cadillac XT5 and even the Camaro SS are fantastic.
What is it that people like so much about the "2017 Malibu Wagon"? For starters, it's big, not like those compacts. Second of all, Chevrolet always knows how to present a decent concept and take it to production. We young men want bright paint, big exhaust, and black chrome. This rendering features all those plus some red accents on the wheels and air scoops.
Engineering a wagon from a sedan isn't that hard. In fact, Chevrolet even knows how to install adaptive suspension more cheaply than the Germans. Nothing goes better than wagons and diesel engines. Despite the Dieselgate scandal, Chevy has not given up on reviving the Cruze Diesel. But that 2-liter turbo doesn't have nearly enough grunt to power something like the Malibu.
In any case, gas is cheaper than ever in America, so you could even have a Subaru-fighting V6 in this and people won't mind. They won't mind at all!
