FOR RELEASE: 2006-11-21

Chevrolet to unveil all-new 2008 Malibu in January

DETROIT, Mich. – Chevrolet confirmed today that the all-new 2008 Malibu will be unveiled in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit and released a sneak peek of one of the car’s available two-tone interiors, which demonstrates a new level of refinement in the extremely competitive mid-size car segment.

“The next-generation Chevrolet Malibu's interior showcases the precision and detailed execution that will differentiate it among the mid-size car segment,” said Ed Peper, Chevrolet General Manager. “The 2008 Chevy Malibu will offer a number of striking and progressive interiors that use premium materials to demonstrate quality and value not seen before in this segment.”

In the sneak peek photograph, the roomier Malibu cabin showcases Chevy's classic dual cockpit design.

The new Malibu builds on the success of its current model, which garnered many awards such as the 2005 J.D. Power Initial Quality Award and the 2006 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety “Top Safety Picks” silver medal.

I saw it in The Car Lounge first, but it is on autodeadline as well, with this caption:

The all-new Chevrolet Malibu will be unveiled at the 2007 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, it was confirmed by General Motors Tuesday, November 21, 2006. The 2008 Chevy Malibu will offer a variety of progressive interiors featuring premium materials that elevate the car to a new level of refinement in the mid-size car segment.

The 2008 Chevrolet Malibu will feature an unusual two-tone cockpit, a feature General Motors Corp. hopes will help one of its mainstays stand out in a crowded field of midsize sedans.

Troy Clarke, president of North American operations, showed off the first pictures of the Malibu's new interior during a speech on Tuesday.

The automaker is looking to generate buzz over the new Malibu, which will debut in January at the North American International Auto Show.

The Malibu's interior "showcases the precision and detailed execution that will differentiate it among the mid-size car segment," Chevrolet General Manager Ed Peper said in a statement. "The 2008 Chevy Malibu will offer a number of striking and progressive interiors that use premium materials to demonstrate quality and value not seen before in this segment."

The Malibu has been a key vehicle for GM, selling more than 144,000 units this year, about one-fifth of Chevrolet car sales. Malibu sales were down about 12 percent through October 2006 compared to the first 10 months of last year.

Who gives a $h!? Look at it while we can and ooh and aah and take solace in the fact that GM finally seems to be doing what it NEEDS to be and raising the bar instead of meeting it.

No I think this is an official GM release, as most everything on autodeadline (the old Wieck) is. I think they are just trying to drum up some publicity for the car...

looks a bit better than the interior of the aura and this makes the G6 interior looks like crap

Looks a lot better as far as design and center stack integration are concerned. The Aura's stereo and HVAC controls are just kind of floating in space while this flows very well with the rest of the dash.

And yeah, the G6 interior is officially ass-tastic.

Can we stop bitching about radio integration now, guys?

I think I can agree on that. With the spy shots of teh CTS interior, the new SRX interior, and now this, I think GM may finally have a handle on things. :ohyeah:

Very interesting. I'm gonna have to see some non-GM photography before I make a final decision, but things look promising. That's a wild interior for a mainstream sedan, but I'm glad GM's being bold and offering something most other manufacturers don't.

I wonder how many colors will be available...

This int. looks like a LTZ.

The two tone with a dark brown is disgusting to me. I'd prefer no two-tone..but if you have to do it..I prefer a light/dark grey combo.
