Approximately Six Seconds Required for 2020 Chevy Malibu to Reach 60 Miles Per Hour
It only takes the 2020 Chevy Malibu approximately six seconds to reach 60 mph when powered by the turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder LTG. The available engine, which is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission is rated at 250 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

The 2020 Malibu also features a standard 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder LFV engine paired to a continuously variable transmission that generates 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.
“Properly motivated, the LFV will propel the Chevrolet Malibu to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 9.3 seconds,” reports GM Authority writer Jonathan Lopez.
The 2020 Malibu will again offer a hybrid trim, which according to Lopez, is expected to deliver a more responsive performance than its gasoline-powered siblings.
“Notably, we believe that the Malibu Hybrid is probably quicker than the model with the 2.0-liter turbo-charged LTG, but no official acceleration specs are available for that model just yet,” he adds.
The 2020 Malibu will be equipped with a new component of the innovative Teen Driver System. The Buckle to Drive feature alerts teen drivers to buckle their seatbelt before driving. The system stalls the gearshift for 20 seconds, preventing the shift out of park. An audible seat belt reminder is heard when the teen driver presses on the brake pedal.
“Safety is our number one priority at Chevrolet,” said Morrow, the mother of a teen driver. “I come to work every day with my children in mind because there is nothing more important than their safety. My hope is that Buckle to Drive will help guide more young drivers to wear their seat belts and encourage positive conversations among teens, their peers and parents.”
