2006 Chevrolet Malibu

The 2006 Chevrolet Malibu was restyled, and dropped the chrome bar that ran across the grille of the car. These changes hearkened back to earlier days of this model, recalling a sportier era.

The base engine is a 2.2-liter Ecotec L61 I4, capable of 145 horsepower. Available engines include a 3.5-liter LX9 V6, rated at 200 horsepower and standard in the LS and LT trims. Both the Sedan and Maxx SS come standard with the 3.9-liter LZ9, rated at 240 horsepower.
