Refresher: Power for the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco comes from a basic 2.4L Ecotech direct-injection 4-cylinder mated to GM’s eAssist battery electric/gas propulsion system, which uses a lithium-ion battery pack and an electric motor to enable regenerative braking, electric assist and start-stop functions. All of that power is transferred through a new 6-speed automatic. The result is a total of 182 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque from the four-banger with an extra 15 hp available from electric power. Prices start at $25,995.
