New Chevrolet Malibu Production Begins In Korea

Malibu production at New Chevrolet Malibu Production Begins In Korea

Hooking up with the Koreans was probably the best thing Chevrolet did in recent years. Continuing their successful partnership, the first all-new Chevroelt Malibu has been produced at Bupyeong plant.

Sales of Chevrolet’s first global midsize sedan will start next month in Korea, but the rest of the world must have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on this fancy new sedan.

The new Malibu draws inspiration from the firm’s sports cars, Camaro and Corvette. Despite the sporty appearance, the car promises the quietest ride in its segment and refined ride quality. Components such as noise-reducing outside rearview mirrors, acoustic laminated front glass and noise-absorption pads are strategically placed to prevent tire, wind and road noise from entering the cabin and improve the overall quality inside.

It will also be generously equipped with stuff like next-generation infotainment system with a seven-inch LCD touch screen, and an available navigation system. The new Malibu comes with a choice of 2.0- and 2.4-liter Ecotec gasoline engines mated with a six-speed automatic transmission, and offers precise ride and handling on par with higher-end sports sedans.

The production ceremony was attended by GM Korea President and CEO Mike Arcamone, Labor Union Chairman Ki Min and company employees. “The new Malibu is our most important product introduction of the year,” Arcamone said. ”It will play a significant role in enabling us to attain our goals in the domestic market while ensuring that GM Korea becomes an important part of Chevrolet’s success in its second century.”
