For 2007, a new, more efficient version of the 3.5L V6, with variable valve timing, replaces the previous 3.5L. Full-length head-curtain side air bags are now standard across the lineup. The remote vehicle starter system is more widely available; it's now standard on the mid-range Maxx LT and available on the sedan LT. Also, OnStar Turn-by-Turn navigation is now available, and several new exterior colors join the lineup: Amber Bronze Metallic, Dark Gray Metallic, and Golden Pewter Metallic.
Fuel economy; low price; smooth, quiet ride; unique, spacious Maxx model.
Chevrolet's 2007 Malibu sedan provides a comfortable ride, decent performance, and a generous list of standard features at a price that's lower than much of the competition. With standard side-curtain air bags on the base LS and mid-range LT, and a new standard remote starter on the LT, make the Malibu an even better value than before. The Malibu Maxx wagon, with its unique shape, provides more space and versatility for a wide range of passenger and cargo needs, while the SS offers a more powerful, 240-horsepower engine and sportier handling for only slightly more money.
