2013 Malibu Review from Bob Maguire Chevrolet

Strengths
Fuel-efficient powertrains; high-mileage Malibu ECO model; fresh, contemporary styling; MyLink connectivity; improved ride and handling
Changes
The Chevrolet Malibu has been completely redesigned for 2013, featuring an all-new styling inside and out, more economical new powertrains, improved ride and handling, more safety equipment and the new Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system with integrated Pandora and Stitcher audio streaming. Compared to the previous Malibu, this one is only slightly shorter, but it has a bit more interior volume plus more shoulder and hip room. Chevrolet is doing away with the V6 and instead going with an all-4-cylinder engine lineup. For now, there’s a conventional 2.5L 4-cylinder model, as well as a green, fuel-saving 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and electric motor combination good for EPA ratings of 25 mpg city, 37 highway. A turbocharged version of the Malibu is expected later in the model year.
Value
The all-new Malibu competes with mid-size 4-door sedans like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Ford Fusion and Hyundai Sonata; but with its 2013 redesign, the Malibu is being reconfigured more toward busy, always-connected parents and those who place a priority on fuel efficiency. For that, at somewhat less than the Camry Hybrid or Fusion Hybrid, the Malibu ECO stands out as a strong value–especially for those who plan to do more mileage on the highway. The Malibu should also hit the mark for shoppers who want a fresh design, as well as those who need to stay connected. Design-wise, the Malibu looks fresh and up-to-date with the rest of the Chevrolet lineup. And with the standard MyLink system, drivers can get simple hands-free calling functions as well as entertainment through streaming-audio apps.
Overview
The standard powertrain for most of the Malibu lineup in 2012 will be a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. The new engine has direct injection and overhead cams, with four valves per cylinder and makes 190 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque on regular-grade gas. At a slightly higher price, the Malibu ECO will provide an option for those who want to maximize their fuel-efficiency. The ECO includes a 182-hp, 2.4L 4-cylinder engine combined with a 15-kW belt-driven motor/generator system that operates as a mild-hybrid system, boosting the powertrain during acceleration recapturing and storing some energy during coasting and braking. The system also allows the engine to shut off at stoplights, and then restart automatically when you lift your foot back off the brake pedal. The Malibu ECO also includes a small lithium-ion battery pack, stored just behind the rear seats. Altogether, the Malibu ECO achieves an EPA-rated 25 mpg city, 37 highway. Also on Malibu ECO models, an active shutter system shuts off airflow at the lower air intake when it’s not needed for cooling. And thanks to an aerodynamically optimized exterior, the new Malibu has the same coefficient of drag as the Chevrolet Volt. Across the model line, the Malibu gets a swoopy new dual-cockpit interior design, with much-upgraded materials; its exterior design has also been refreshed to fit in with other Chevy models like the Camaro and Cruze. One of the design highlights of the interior is a radio face that swivels outward, then up and in, to reveal a large storage space behind. The ECO comes standard with a lane-departure warning system, as well as rear parking sensors and a rearview camera system. There are eight standard airbags on all 2013 Malibu models, and separate rear thorax bags will also be optional. Just as the previous version, the 2013 Malibu is expected to come in a full range of trims, including basic LS, mid-range LT and top-of-the-line LTZ. Remote keyless entry, cruise control and tilt/telescopic steering adjustment were among many standard features at the base LS level, while LT models included upgraded wheels and trim (plus in step-up packages, extras like heated seats and remote start). The LTZ last year included more luxurious dress-ups, plus a sunroof, heated side mirrors, power leather seats, and automatic climate control. Look for LED taillamps to be offered, with HID headlamps available on top trims. All 2013 Malibu trims will include MyLink, a touch-screen-based system that serves as a hub for hands-free connectivity with smartphones, or media players connected by USB, and has integrated applications for Pandora and Stitcher internet radio services.

Chevy Equinox, Time to Crossover

Chevy Equinox gets attention. Not only due to its sleek and stylish exterior but also because of what happens on the inside. For the modern family on the go, this crossover was designed for you.

Chevy Equinox, Time to Crossover

Equinox seats five comfortably and offers the most rear–seat legroom in its class. It has amazing storage capacity with 18 storage areas. And for the 2012 model year, Equinox LT and LTZ models feature a new 7″ diagonal color touch radio, which can display a rear camera image from your MP3 player.

And since you’re on the go you might as well optimize your fuel efficiency with a fuel–saving 6–speed automatic transmission giving you an EPA–estimated 32 MPG highway.

With all this and more, isn’t it time to cross over to Chevy Equinox?

Bob Maguire Chevroletis partnering with the Bordentown Little League in Bordentown, NJ. Bob Maguire Chevrolethas joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to providenew equipment, instructional clinics, a monetary donation and an opportunity to raise an additional $10,000 through a Chevrolet vehicle sweepstakes. The program kicks off March 1 and runs through July 15, 2012.

 “Youth baseball provides positive and productive life lessons for young people across America, and the Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is an extension of Chevrolet’s commitment to baseball, community and families. Bob Maguire Chevrolet is bringing that same dedication to youth baseball,”said Michael Maguire, Presidentfor Bob Maguire Chevrolet.

 “There is nothing more American than Chevrolet and baseball and Bob Maguire Chevrolet wants to combine America’s favorite brand and favorite pastime together for our families in Bordentown to enjoy,” added Michael Maguire.

 The Chevrolet Youth Baseball program is beginning its seventh year, and has helped raise more than $13 million to aid local teams, affecting more than 2.7 million young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play. This year, about 1,600 Chevrolet dealers are participating.

 Bob Maguire Chevrolet will present the Bordentown Little League with 10 new equipment kits complete with equipment bags, baseball buckets, whiffle balls, hitting net, batting tees and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts.

12 Fuel Economy Tips from Bob Maguire Chevrolet

The following are a dozen fuel savings tips from Chevrolet Certified Service at Bob Maguire Chevrolet:
1. Engine Maintenance – A properly maintained engine can improve fuel economy about 4 percent, according to the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Fixing a serious issue – such as faulty oxygen sensor – can boost mileage up
to 40 percent. Never ignore a service-engine-soon light.
2. Pump Up – Properly inflated tires improve gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent. Properly inflated tires are safer and
last longer. Under-inflated tires can lower fuel economy by 0.3 percent for every one pound-per-square-inch
drop in the pressure of all four tires. Do not rely solely on the tire pressure monitoring system to detect an underinflated
tire – it’s best to check tires with a good gauge once a month and check your owner’s manual for more
information.
3. Unpack – Carrying unneeded cargo makes your vehicle work harder and use more gas. The EPA says an extra
100 pounds reduces fuel economy up to 2 percent – even more in smaller vehicles. A loaded roof rack cuts fuel
economy by up to 5 percent. About a quarter of each gallon of gas goes toward overcoming wind resistance, so
when cargo rides on top of the vehicle, fuel economy is reduced. Even empty ski/snowboard and bike racks can
affect aerodynamics, so remove them when the seasons are over.
4. Slow Down – While each vehicle reaches its optimal fuel economy at a different speed (or range of speeds), gas
mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph, according to the EPA. Every 5 mph over 60 mph is like
adding an additional 24 cents per gallon for gas.
5. Avoid Idling – A car gets 0 mpg when the engine is idling: While it does take a small amount of fuel to restart a
vehicle, 15 minutes in the drive-through can burn through a quarter of a gallon of fuel. So that dollar menu is more
like a $2 menu.
6. Chill Out – Speeding, rapid acceleration and braking can lower gas mileage by 33 percent on the highway and 5
percent in city driving.
7. Put it in Overdrive – Using an overdrive gear on the highway reduces engine speed, saving both fuel and engine
wear.
8. Roll ‘Em Down Around Town – Air conditioning reduces fuel efficiency by up to 10 percent. Avoid using the air
conditioner by rolling down the windows at speeds below 40 mph. At speeds above 45 mph, wind drag uses more
fuel than running the A/C.
9. Unclog – It’s hard to run if you can’t breathe. Older cars without fuel injection and computer-controlled technology
can lose 14 percent of their fuel economy because of a dirt-clogged air filter, which also can damage the engine.
A clean air filter improves acceleration. An air filter full of dirt makes the engine work harder and can let in
impurities that damage the engine. Replacing a severely plugged filter improves fuel economy by up to 14 percent,
according to the EPA. In modern cars, replacing a dirty or clogged air filter improves acceleration performance.
10. Use the Right Oil – Because oil reduces engine friction and friction makes an engine work harder, using the
manufacturer’s recommended grade of oil improves fuel economy by 1 percent to 2 percent.
11. Plan your Trips – Taking your kids to soccer or swim classes? Grocery shopping? Plan routes and timing to avoid
heavy periods of traffic congestion.
12. Cap Check – Loose or poorly fitting gas gaps not only can trigger a “check engine light” warning; they send 147
million gallons of gasoline into the air as vapor every year, according to a report by the Discovery Channel. A
missing or poorly fitting cap can reduce fuel economy by 1 to 2 percent.

2013 Chevy Traverse at Bob Maguire Chevy Gives Families New Gathering Space

The new 2013 Chevrolet Traverse crossover-utility vehicle offers families a new gathering space with greater style, refinement and safety. It goes into production later this year, building on the space, comfort and efficiency that have made Traverse popular.

“The new Traverse is a family vehicle without compromise,” said Chris Perry, vice president, Chevrolet Global Marketing and Strategy. “It is more capable than many sport-utility vehicles, with as much room as a minivan and better functionality than both. The Traverse is clever, capable and confident – and there when you need it most.”

The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse has a new, athletic exterior design, complemented by a more expressive front end that introduces a new face for Chevrolet crossover utilities.

The front features a new shape supported by a powerdome hood, a three-bar upper and two-bar lower grille design, new lamps, chrome accents around the grille and fog lamps, and sculpted front corners similar to the Malibu sedan. The new design captures the overall character of Chevy’s new car lineup, for a consistent family resemblance.

“We have injected a stronger presence into the Traverse exterior by focusing on the details,” said Phillip Zak, GM director of exterior design. “The small but important changes give it a more vibrant personality that more closely reflects the lifestyles of the families who rely on the Traverse to get them through their busy lives.”

At the rear, redesigned lamps and the license plate pocket are positioned in the new liftgate for a sportier look.

New family gathering space

Space is the hallmark of the Traverse interior. With its class-leading spaciousness, comfortable and flexible seating for up to eight adults, and more cargo-carrying capacity than any other vehicle in its segment, the 2013 Chevy Traverse builds on these established attributes by offering an interior environment with new features and refined appointments.

Upgraded materials include soft-touch surfaces on the instrument panel and front door uppers, contrasting stitching, chrome and silver accents, and available blue ambient lighting that flows through the cabin.

A new center stack showcases a 6.5-inch color touch radio with the available Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system. MyLink allows customers to seamlessly integrate their smartphones for hands-free calling through the audio system and Bluetooth streaming of popular internet radio favorites Pandora and Stitcher. The center stack also has large and illuminated climate controls that are easier to use and have a more upscale feel.

The front seats now feature articulating head restraints that can be adjusted up or down and fore and aft for greater comfort. The eight-way power passenger seat includes leather trim. New wood trim treatments are standard on LT and LTZ.

Adding to the overall feel of quality, the fit and finish of the interior panels have been improved on all models. The new Traverse will come with three interior color choices, in cloth or leather, including Ebony and Mojave, Light Titanium and Dark Titanium, and Ebony.

Passes the parent test

The Traverse passes the parent test with three rows of seating standard on all models, flexible seating configurations, class-leading people and cargo-carrying capacity, and family-friendly entertainment and other features.

Traverse’s second-row seat comes with a pair of captain’s chairs or a three-passenger bench. Each incorporates Traverse’s child-friendly, second-row SmartSlide feature that enables unobstructed access to the third-row bench seat with one hand – and is easy for children to operate.

The third-row seat can comfortably accommodate three adult passengers. Traverse’s 24.4 cu. ft. (691 liters) of cargo room behind its third row is larger than many full-size utility vehicles. Traverse also has easy-to-operate safety belts, up to 12 cup holders and an available rear-seat entertainment system.

2013 Chevy Traverse at Bob Maguire Chevy Gives Families New Gathering Space

Efficient power and car-like ride

Traverse has a long 118.9-inch (3,019 mm) wheelbase, with a wide 67.8-inch (1,721 mm) front track and 67.4-inch (1,712 mm) rear track – a combination that enables smooth, stable ride and handling characteristics.

Efficiency in the Traverse comes from a technically advanced 3.6L V-6 with fuel-saving direct injection technology and continuously variable valve timing.  It is mated with a six-speed automatic transmission with improved shift feel that results in more confident acceleration when the driver needs additional power to enter the highway or pass another motorist.

The engine is SAE-certified at 288 horsepower (215 Nm) and 270 lb.-ft. of torque (366 Nm) with dual exhaust (281 hp/210 kW and 266 lb.-ft./361 Nm with single exhaust). Its direct injection fuel delivery helps produce power similar to many V-8 engines and uses regular unleaded gasoline.

The transmission controls have been revised to provide quicker and more consistent shifts. Along with additional transmission hardware changes, the Traverse is expected to continue to deliver among the best fuel economy ratings of any eight-passenger (FWD) utility vehicle.

Ride and handling improvements have been made through the use of rebound springs in the front struts that increase roll control. New shock valving has been employed for low-velocity control to deliver a smoother ride at lower speeds.

The available intelligent all-wheel-drive (AWD) system provides increased traction on slippery roads by actively managing the torque distribution between the front and rear axles, based on factors such as wheel speed, throttle and surface conditions. There is no driver intervention; the system automatically decides how much torque to apply and delivers it to the wheels that have the best traction.

Traverse maintains capability to deliver improved ride and handling, offering utility-like towing capacity of up to 5,200 pounds (2,358 kg).

Smart and safe family hauler

The Traverse is among the safest vehicles on the road today, previously earning top honors and recognition from leading third-party organizations and in government crash testing.

For 2013 it enhances its safety reputation with the industry’s first front center air bag. It is engineered to provide additional restraint to drivers and front passengers in far-side impact crashes, where the affected occupant is on the opposite, non-struck side of the vehicle.

When a severe impact occurs, the air bag deploys in milliseconds from the inboard side of the driver’s seat and inflates between the driver and front passenger, providing added protection for both front occupants.

“While no restraint technology or feature can address all body areas or all potential injuries, the front center air bag is designed to address field-relevant, side-impact crashes that are not addressed by current regulatory or consumer metric test conditions,” said Gay Kent, GM executive director of Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness. “It works with the vehicle’s other air bags, safety belts and structure to deliver a safer occupant environment.”

Additional safety and security features:

  • Available Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert systems (standard on LTZ) use radar to watch spots the driver may not see – and provide visible and audible warnings to help prevent collisions.
  • Standard head curtain side air bags with rollover protection for outboard occupants in all seating rows. In addition to providing protection in moderate-to-severe side crashes, the roof-mounted head curtain air bags will deploy in a rollover to help provide increased occupant protection and containment.
  • StabiliTrak electronic stability control with rollover mitigation technology is standard on all models and incorporates full-function traction control.
  • Standard rearview camera system is designed to provide the driver with added capability to view what is in the rearward path of the vehicle.
  • Standard four-wheel-disc brake system with ABS featuring smooth, quiet operation, longer pad life and more resistance to brake pulsation.
  • Safety belt pretensioners reduce forward movement during a collision, and are standard on the front safety belts, along with load-limiting retractors that help limit the belts’ impact on the occupants’ chest. The dynamic locking latch plate locks to hold the occupants’ pelvis in place.
  • LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) child seat attachment system is included in outboard second-row seating positions.
  • Tire pressure monitoring system is standard on all models.
  • Strong body structure to absorb crash energy and provide a protective “safety cage” around occupants.
  • Standard hill start assist brakes help reduce the tendency of a vehicle to roll forward or backward on a hill after the brake pedal is released by momentarily retaining pressure on the brake discs.

OnStar Features

OnStar is standard on all Traverse models. It uses GPS and cellular phone technology to automatically call for help in the event of a crash. OnStar subscribers also can use the service to be Good Samaritans by sending help to other motorists, and to call for help in other non-crash emergencies.

  • OnStar is the leading provider of in-vehicle safety, security and information services in the United States and Canada.
  • Six months of complimentary OnStar Directions and Connections service with Turn-by-Turn Navigation for easier route guidance comes on all Traverse models. The feature is easy to use because all directions are sent to the car by an advisor, without the need to stop. Turn-by-Turn can be cost-effective, since map updates and aftermarket navigation systems are not needed.
  • Stolen Vehicle Assistance helps police track the vehicle.
  • OnStar Mobile App allows owners with Android™ or Apple™ smart phones to remotely start the engine, lock and unlock doors and view vital vehicle information such as tire pressure, fuel tank level, range, remaining oil life, etc.

For 2013, Traverse is offered in LS, LT and LTZ models (with two LT packages: 1LT and 2LT), in both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive configurations. It is built in Lansing, Mich. Pricing is not announced.

Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is now one of the world’s largest car brands, doing business in more than 140 countries and selling more than 4 million cars and trucks a year. Chevrolet provides customers with fuel-efficient vehicles that feature spirited performance, expressive design and high quality.
