If you have been paying attention to the commercials and different social media platforms, you will probably have noticed that Chevrolet has debuted a new feature on the all new Chevy Malibu. The new 2015 Malibu is now available with Wi-Fi built right into the car. Yep, that’s right. The new 2015 Chevy Malibu is a rolling hotspot, as long as the car is on or running on accessory power. GM and OnStar have pulled out all of the stops to make Chevy life more convenient for today’s busy customers and there are plans in the works to roll out the 4G LTE service to many more GM vehicles.

While we patiently anxiously wait for 4G LTE service to roll out to more models, here are 5 fast facts about the new Wi-Fi service.

1. Connect as many as 7 devices at once!

2. Faster, more reliable and more powerful than a smartphone’s hotspot!

3. Wi-Fi is always on when the vehicle is running, or in accessory mode.

4. The Wi-Fi hotspot extends 50 feet beyond the vehicle!

5. The first 3 months or 3GB of data are included with the purchase of the 2015 Malibu. After 3 months, or 3GB of data, select an OnStar plan that works best for you.

 The Chevrolet Malibu now comes with the all new eAssist capability. The Chevrolet Malibu Eco cars are all front-wheel drive with a lightly electrified gas engine. The eAssist program has a battery located in the trunk as an additional power source.  The battery assists the engine with using a belt-starter/ generator. Equipped with 196 horsepower this full-sized sedan is economically friendly and gives you power when you need it the most.


The noise is no more! The Malibu now has a more sophisticated driving experience, due to chassis and suspension updates. These give the Malibu an overall more quiet and smoother ride. These updated features also give the vehicle better handling skills and decreased body roll (when turning corners).  The Malibu also comes featured with four-wheel antilock disc brakes that help to guarantee a reliable stopping performance.

  1. 36 MPG

The Chevrolet Malibu eAssist allows for 36 MPG. The reason for this awesome fuel efficiency is due to the 4-cylinder engine. The engine has been redesigned with efficiency in mind. The eAssist was designed to help you, the consumer, save gas.  The Malibu now comes with efficient stop/start technology.


The stop/ start technology is a gas saving feature designed with you in mind. For example, if you are driving and get stuck at a red light ten cars deep, the engine of the Malibu will automatically shut off when the car is stopped. While still maintaining all of the creature comforts we all love; from ice cold air conditioning to full stereo sound.  When you let off of the brake, the car will flawlessly restart.  This technology will allow you to save money at the pump and that is especially important as gas prices continue to rise.


 You can now opt for the Ecotec 2.0 L turbocharged engine.  This engine gives you the feel of a V6 in an efficient 4-cylinder and offers 259 horsepower. This model lets you have all the fun of a turbocharged vehicle without all of the stops at the gas stations along the way.
