An interesting power unit is the I-4. It has a volume of 2.5 liters and has been produced since 2013. Equipped with a turbine. At the same time, the turbocharged 2 liters produce 259 horsepower.
With 352 Nm of torque, the mid-size sedan delivers truly sporty driving dynamics.
Interestingly, the I-4 is larger than the V6, which was once installed on the same Chevrolet Malibu. I-4 has not only power, but also gives good dynamics. The two-liter turbocharged engine accelerates to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds.
No less interesting is the 2.5-liter internal combustion engine, which produces 197 hp. (260 Nm). This engine has the highest torque among aspirated engines in its class. Significantly outperforms the expected 2013 Ford Fusion. Outperforms the 2012 Toyota Camry naturally aspirated engine in terms of power and torque.
Engine 8th generation 2.4l
LE9 is a power unit belonging to the GM Ecotec series. Installed mainly on crossovers. The volume of the engine is 2.4 liters. There are many versions of the engine. They differ not only in volume, but also of course in torque.
The motor has several design features. The exhaust manifold was made of cast iron, the valves are equipped with hydraulic pushers. There is a chain on the timing drive, the cylinder head is made of aluminum, 16 valves are used in the design. The cylinder block is made of aluminum foam.
LE9 due to its modernized design is quite reliable. The development engineers took into account the mistakes of previous generations, which made it possible to avoid overloads, overheating and other problems. That is why the power unit is used not only for repairing Chevrolet cars, but also for swapping cars of other brands.
The motor is one of those internal combustion engines that are able to work confidently not only on the 95th, but also on the 92nd, 91st gasoline. True, such a rule applies only on condition that the fuel does not contain impurities and belongs to the category of quality. ICE loyalty to oil is not so great. Oil should be used only that which is indicated in the manual for the vehicle.
The rest of the engine belongs to the resource. In order to move for a long time without breakdowns, it is enough to add and change oil in time, monitor the level of coolant and other liquids. Replacing the engine with a contract one, as is the case with many other engines, is often more expedient than repair. As a rule, contract motors are imported from abroad and have a considerable residual resource.
Most motorists are happy with the Chevrolet Malibu. And this applies to both owners of versions of cars with a 3.0-liter engine, and owners of cars with a 2.4-liter engine. The reliability of the power unit is emphasized, combined with an excellent level of comfort. Car owners also like the safety of the vehicle.
The designers paid special attention to the interior, for the assembly of which high-quality materials were used. At night, the elephant is illuminated by a pleasant, relaxed backlight. The instrument model is easy to read, and the controls are logically understandable. The driver’s seat is comfortably adjustable in several directions.
