2015 Chevrolet Malibu is a Leader in Fuel-Saving Technology

July 25th, 2014 by


Would you have ever thought before that the classic Chevrolet Malibu would become a prominent leader in fuel-saving technology? Yep, that’s right! The Malibu is bringing standard stop/start technology to the mainstream sedan market at a time like now when saving instead of wasting has become so important to drivers.

Stop/start technology is a feature that greatly reduces fuel consumption by shutting off a vehicle’s engine with the car comes to a top out on the road, like at a traffic light, for instance. Within an incredible 337 milliseconds, the engine will restart when the driver takes their foot off of the brakes. Pretty cool, right?

Not only is the Chevy Malibu one of the safest vehicles to drive today (it was even recently one of IIHS’ recommended used cars for teen drivers) but now it has become an outstanding lead for reducing fuel consumption. In fact, 97% of customers who purchased a 2014 or 2015 Chevy Malibu opted for its 2.5-liter engine that comes fully-equipped with standard stop/start technology.

The 2015 Chevy Impala also features the addition of standard stop/start technology, as well. For more information or tips for saving fuel, contact us today at Carter Chevrolet!
