The Chevrolet Malibu is an affordable mid-size vehicle made and sold by Chevrolet from 1963 to 1983 and from then on, the Malibu has been its own separate model line. The first Chevrolet Malibu was just a trimset, made and sold by Chevrolet and it became the first model of its model series dedicated to bringing back the ‘cheap’ feeling of a car for people who could not afford a Mercedes or a BMW. Today, even many people of a lower income level can afford to have their dream car, thanks to the efforts of Chevrolet and its Malibu line.
The most notable feature of the Chevrolet Malibu is its ‘curved’ design, which gives it a much wider profile than the more traditional American vehicles of that time. It is also noteworthy that it has been able to maintain the same height, length and weight throughout the years, despite the constant introduction of better and newer vehicles. Despite this, the Malibu still manages to maintain its classic image and still looks class and classy, just like a classic vehicle would. This is in part due to the fact that the Malibu was originally sold in California.
Despite the fact that there are many different makes and models of the Malibu, the history of the vehicle is particularly interesting. Its creation was initiated by an automotive engineer by the name of Lee Baucom, who had been contracted by Chevrolet to develop a compact and lightweight sports vehicle. His plan was to build a vehicle that would be able to perform as well on a racetrack as it would do in an actual road test.
In order to achieve this, he took great care in designing the exterior of the Malibu to the extent that the engineers called it a ‘winged Concept.’ This meant that the vehicle had wing mirrors so that the engineers could observe what they were doing at all times while they drove. The goal was to have everything perfectly synchronized, including the brakes, which were supposed to work in conjunction with the wings in order to offer the best possible braking performance. To compensate for the lack of speed and maneuverability of such a small vehicle, all the Chevrolet Malibu models featured wide tires, instead of the normally used 32 inches, on the front wheels. This was to ensure both greater stability and greater handling power.
The interior of the Malibu model was equally spacious, thanks to generous amounts of space that was built in the interior walls of the vehicle, in order to allow passengers to get into the driver compartment and have enough room to comfortably sit. As a result, the designers also managed to include a large leather sectional that stretches from the dashboard to the back of the vehicle, giving passengers that feeling of being welcomed as if they were guests in the very own Chevy. This section is split into three compartments, namely the center section that contains storage drawers and cup holders, the outer section that houses the air con, and finally the last section that houses the keys, glove box and further compartment for passengers to keep their personal belongings. All these compartments are built in such a way as to provide easy access and a perfect parking position for the vehicle.
The exterior of the Malibu features a beautiful, glossy paint job that is in a combination of either silver or black colors. In addition to this, the front fenders, both the upper and lower, have both been designed to feature dual exhaust pipes, which give the vehicle an aggressive appearance and increase the power of its motor. The two chrome side pipes, which are located on either side of the engine block, help to cool down the engine of the vehicle. The chrome side pipes feature a design that has twin tips, to increase the chances of the pipe colliding with another vehicle.
The interior of the Malibu model also features a wealth of options, allowing you to customize your vehicle in many different ways. There are wide headrests that extend from the top of the seats, behind which you can have a personal radio installed, as well as power recline. You can also get a wealth of storage options, including a set of bucket seats that allow you to have both of your feet on the ground while you drive. Additionally, you will be able to get a high level of performance out of your vehicle, thanks to the suspension components. The suspensions of the Malibu have been designed to offer extreme levels of comfort and safety, thanks to the various advancements made in this area in recent years.
Finally, if you want to make your vehicle really pop, you should take the time to have it fitted with a chrome badge, which will help to identify your vehicle. This badge also acts as a safety device, helping to ensure that your car is safe and secure. With such a wide range of features available, the Chevy Malibu makes for an extremely versatile vehicle. The affordability of the vehicle makes it ideal for anyone looking for a reliable, stylish and luxurious vehicle that they can use every day. So if you are in the market for a new car, take your time to look at all the options that are available today!
