The current 2025 Chevy Malibu has been on the North American market since 2015 and is long overdue for a new model. But, it was revealed that General Motors had already eliminated all sedans from its lineup as a result due to the increasing popularity of SUVs, and Chevrolet had to drop the huge car Impala by the year 2020. There were rumors regarding whether the sixth-generation Malibu might be the last. But, there’s new evidence that suggests the possibility that General Motors is indeed working on a seventh edition of the popular sedan which is likely to arrive within less than two years.
2025 Chevy Malibu Changes
According to GM Authority, which cites those who have been familiar with the situation, the decision was taken through General Motors to keep the Malibu in production for another generation. According to the publication, they have discovered additional details about the 7th generation Malibu which is a mid-sized sedan. For instance, the new Malibu could be powered with an improved model of the VSS F platform from GM. As it’s a platform that is specifically designed to operate alongside internal combustion engines, and seven generations of engines, it’s not anticipated to be launched as a solely electric model however, it is likely to be a component of the transition to electric mobility through the incorporation of hybrid engines.
It is also anticipated that the coming Malibu will be based on the D/E variant of the platform. It’s expected to be accompanied by the addition of length, which will move the 2025 Chevy Malibu to the 5-meter range. Shortly, it’s most likely the Malibu could be the only car in Chevrolet’s model lineup that will assume the function of an all-size flagship and, consequently, take over the old Impala at the same time. Similar plans have been adopted by Maserati which will take over its Ghibli as well as the Quattroporte with smaller models.
Due to the rise in SUVs, the market for cars has seen a drop over the past couple of years. While all information isn’t available, fewer new models of this type are expected to be made in 2022 than this year. This could be enough to cause many manufacturers to scrap their older models and focus on SUVs. The new models such as the Honda Accord and the Malibu are both bold examples. Manufacturers’ reward is a steady flow of sales in a declining segment.
2025 Chevy Malibu Rumors
The latest model of 2025 Chevy Malibu is anticipated to continue to be removed from the production line in Fairfax, the GM Fairfax plant in Fairfax where the current model is produced. The new model is expected to be available for sale in 2025 and be on the production line until the year 2031.
GM Authority reports. In addition to being an official manufacturer of the 2025 Chevy Malibu, is also working on an electric car that will be available and will be marketed to segment D. But it’s scheduled to launch only in China for the time being. When and if it will be released for North America in parallel with the Malibu or possibly substitute it, is yet to be determined.
