While its name may conjure up a beach, the 2022 Chevrolet Malibu offers up more than just breezy style; beneath the relaxed and somewhat sporty exterior, this mid-size sedan offers up some serious luxury and performance. So if you’re looking for a confident sedan that checks all the boxes, you can relax—because you’ll find the 2022 Malibu at Alberta’s source for all things Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC: Jack Carter Chev!



The sleek lines of the 2022 Chevrolet Malibu flow gently across the exterior of this stylish sedan, almost like waves lapping at the beach. However, it’s the smart accents that really underscore the Chevy Malibu’s good looks; from the body-coloured heated power outside mirrors found standard on all trims, to the 19” wheels of the Malibu Premier, you’ll find an array of small details that elevate the 2022 Malibu. Standard LED Daytime Running Lamps add a bit of function to the Malibu’s exquisite form, while an available rear spoiler adds to the sedan’s sporty undercurrents.


Inside, the 2022 Chevrolet Malibu is awash with luxury. The spacious cabin is exceptionally quiet, and laid out in a comfortable and intuitive manner. A 6- or 8-way power driver seat comes standard in the Malibu, as does a 60/40 split-folding rear bench seat—allowing you to maximize the wealth of interior and cargo space on offer. Other options like the dual pane power sunroof and steering-wheel mounted controls make the Malibu a supremely cozy and convenient everyday driver.

The 2022 Chevy Malibu offers no shortage of power in addition to a smooth and efficient ride thanks to its long wheelbase. Standard on the Malibu, a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged ECOTEC® engine features smart fuel-saving tech like Continuously Variable Valve Timing, Direct Injection, and Stop/Start technology, in addition to 160 horses and 184 lb-ft of torque. However, it’s the turbocharged 2.0-litre ECOTEC® engine paired to a 9-speed automatic transmission on the Malibu Premier that’s the real star of the show. With 250 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, the Premier offers a lot of punch in the city or on the highway—the latter of which finds this top trim level sporting a scant 7.4 L/100 km in estimated fuel efficiency. Because there’s no reason a mid-size sedan shouldn’t be fun to drive, too.

Safety & Technology

Helping propel the 2022 Malibu to the top of the sedan market is a healthy dose of safety and tech. With lightning quick 4G LTE Wi-Fi-capability standard, along with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System and an 8” diagonal colour touchscreen, the Malibu offers no shortage of infotainment—especially if you upgrade to the available Bose® 9-speaker premium audio system. In terms of safety, the standard Rear Vision Camera gives you an all-access pass to everything behind your vehicle when in reverse, while available driver assistance features like Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist, and Front Pedestrian Braking, among others, offer added convenience and safety to your everyday drive. Teen Driver Technology comes standard on the 2022 Malibu, allowing you to monitor new drivers, set speed limits, and make sure that your inexperienced drivers are buckled up when they hit the road.

Chevrolet Malibu Model Changes

The 2022 version of this smart sedan hasn’t seen too many changes compared to the 2021 Chevrolet Malibu. Chief among the changes that did occur is the removal of the base Malibu L, resulting in several of the option packages having been renamed or adjusted—but a member of the Jack Carter team will always be happy to help you find the right Malibu with the right features for your needs. All models in this ninth generation Malibu offer an electronic parking brake as standard equipment, while the paint colours Shadow Gray Metallic and Black Cherry Metallic have been removed in favour of the new Mineral Gray Metallic and Dark Ash Metallic options.
