General Motors has announced pricing for the all-new Chevrolet Malibu. Prices for the Malibu will start under $20,000 with the base model LS listing for $19,345, a $2,000 premium over the previous model. A hybrid Malibu will also be available for $22,140, undercutting the Camry Hybrid by about $3,000. Scheduled to roll out in Chevy dealerships across the country this coming November.

GM offers five variants of the all-new 2008 Chevy Malibu. These include the Malibu LS, Malibu 1LT, Malibu 2LT, Malibu LTZ, and the Malibu Hybrid. Gone is the previous cliff-face fascia and Rubbermaid trim; instead there’s a striking, twin cockpit design with some classy two-tone trim options. Chevy has also loaded-up on safety features to reinforce the Malibu’s standing as a family fave. Standard motivation is GM’s 164-hp 2.4-liter Ecotec four-cylinder, with the all-aluminum 3.6-liter 252-hp V-6 as an option.
