Chevy has announced the 2020 Chevy Malibu acceleration specs — and they are out of this world. The family-friendly mid-size sedan, when powered by the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder LTG engine, can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in 6 seconds flat. Paired with a nine-speed automatic gearbox, this engine is also powerful, throwing down 250 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
The standard engine powering the 2020 Malibu is not so bad either. It’s a 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder LFV engine, which Chevy has matched with a continuously variable transmission. This combo makes 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. This engine is also pretty fast, boasting a 0-to-60 launch time of just 9.3 seconds, according to Jonathan Lopez of GM Authority.
But let’s not forget the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid model. While Chevy has not officially announced any specs regarding acceleration for the Malibu Hybrid, Lopez believes that the hybrid model should accelerate ever faster than the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.
Also notable for the 2020 Malibu model is the new Buck to Drive feature of the Teen Driver technology, which reminds teen drivers (or drivers of all ages) to buckle up before driving. This system is also included on the 2020 Traverse and Colorado.
