THE ALL-NEW 2013 MALIBU

ENVISIONED TO MEET YOUR NEEDS

With sophistication and refined ingenuity, expect nothing less than standing out. Inspired by the athletic stance of Camaro, the bold new design improves aerodynamics while turning heads. The smooth ride goes hand-in-hand to deliver confident handling. Exceptional attention to detail throughout the vehicle’s design helps offer up to an EPA-estimated 34 MPG on the highway. The precision continues on the inside with attractive styling, advanced technology, and entertainment options topped off with a level of comfort that you’ll have to experience yourself to fully appreciate. With Malibu Eco, stylish sophistication takes on intelligence with eAssist technology that allows you to conserve fuel when it’s not needed, making for a smarter fuel-efficient drive with 37 MPG on the highway. As the first truly global midsize sedan for Chevrolet, the design and technology of home is spreading worldwide. Performance With the 2013 Malibu, performance means precision from the controlled steering to technology-driven capability. The ECOTEC® 2.5L 4-cylinder engine (standard on LS, LT and LTZ) offers 197-horsepower, 191 lb.-ft. of torque and 34 MPG. The available ECOTEC 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine offers 259 horsepower, 260 lb.-ft. of torque and an estimated 30 MPG highway The 6-speed automatic transmission has been primed to ensure top-notch shifting and response time with 4-cylinder fuel efficiency. The aerodynamic design along with noise-absorbing material on both sides of the front of the dash help to reduce cabin noise, giving you a quiet drive. Worldly Style Embodying the aggressive stance of a sports car combined with the clean, classic lines of a high-end luxury car, Malibu has taken on all the right touches to attract attention. The vehicle has been redesigned to create a wider track and a shorter wheelbase along with available 19” inch wheels (requires turbocharged engine) that makes for a bold yet unmistakably elegant presence in motion or standing still.

Aerodynamic Design Aside from striking style, Malibu also wields design with purpose. Aerodynamic details guide airflow seamlessly around the vehicle body to help increase fuel efficiency by decreasing resistance. The aero-optimized rounded corners, taillamps and side mirrors allow the car to effortlessly slice through the air. Spaciousness Meets Sophistication While maintaining its sophisticated dual-cockpit design, the sport-sculpted seats have been highly bolstered for long-distance comfort. In addition to premium comfort, storage options have been enhanced to provide even more roominess for your practical needs. The easily accessible storage includes an area behind the available 7” diagonal color touch-screen. No detail overlooked Expert craftsmanship can be found throughout Malibu whether in its refined surfacing with premium materials or the rich appointments available throughout such as chrome, woodgrain or metallic accents, depending on the model. The sleek interior features acoustic laminated glass for a superb level of quietness as well as low-gloss surfacing and soft-touch tactility to provide a luxurious appearance.

MALIBU ECO WITH EASSIST: ENGINEERED FOR PROFICIENCY The Brains to Match the Beauty With Malibu Eco, technology and style come together to bring you a fuel-efficient drive. The ECOTEC® 2.4L engine with eAssist technology works subtly with the vehicle’s mechanics, capturing energy to help support the powertrain. The result is a remarkable EPA-estimated 37 MPG on the highway and up to 580 highway miles per tank. The 7-inch diagonal touch-screen available with eAssist includes a Power Flow display that indicates which mode eAssist is in. Malibu not only boasts intuitive efficiency with the assistance of eAssist technology but also carries on the line of style the makes Malibu what it is.

4 • DRIVE ARKANSAS • March 7, 2013


Using Fuel Intelligently with eAssist Midsize is taken to the next level with eAssist technology, a system that works intelligently and subtly with the vehicle’s mechanics, capturing energy to help support the powertrain. The result is a remarkable EPA-estimated 37 MPG on the highway and a vehicle that uses fuel when you need it, and preserves it when you don’t. Regenerative Braking There’s no need to ever think about charging the lithium-ion battery. eAssist features regenerative braking that captures power normally lost during coasting or braking, converts it to electricity and stores it for when it’s needed, helping keep the lithium-ion battery charged and off your to-do list. Lithium-Ion Battery Pack How do you power a battery without charging it? It’s simple: Just drive and in certain scenarios the lithium-ion battery stores energy to keep charged. That energy is later used to deliver an electric boost to the engine during heavy acceleration or climbing a grade. And while the vehicle is at a stop, the engine shuts off and the battery-powered motor-generator unit powers accessories, preserving fuel so it can be used later. ECOTEC® 2.4L Direct Injection 4-Cylinder Engine Offering an EPA-estimated 25 MPG city/37 highway in a midsize sedan takes careful thought. However, offering such remarkable fuel economy along with 182 horsepower and its solid, connected-to-theroad feel of a premium sedan … well, that takes passion. With its ECOTEC® 2.4L Direct Injection 4-cylinder engine that works intuitively with the 15 kW motor-generator unit to conserve fuel when it’s not needed, Malibu Eco uses smarter engineering for smarter driving. 15 kW Motor-Generator Unit Owning the 2013 Malibu Eco means you get a smarter drive. When the car is stopped, it automatically switches from using gas to energy from the lithium-ion battery. The motor-generator unit brings the engine to a smooth stop and prepares it for a seamless start when the brake pedal is released. Drivers wouldn’t notice the transition if it weren’t for the integrated high-resolution full-color Driver Information Center and 7-inch diagonal touch-screen that display when the battery is supporting the powertrain. Ride and Handling To enhance the Malibu experience, ride and handling has been tuned and calibrated on rural roads, highways and at testing facilities around the world. The wider track and stiffer structure delivers more responsive, solid handling while the premium ZF steering components offer top-of-the-line precision and control. The four-wheel antilock disc brakes help ensure reliable stopping performance. The hydraulic ride bushings and tuned suspension also work together to give you a quiet and overall smooth ride.

Be Entertained Enjoying a drive has never been so easy. No matter where you are, available Chevrolet MyLink allows you to manage the drive better as you stay entertained. MyLink works with your compatible smartphone and Bluetooth® wireless technology to stream content to its 7-inch diagonal color touch-screen. Through voice commands or touch controls, tune into Pandora® or Stitcher SmartRadio™ or listen to commercial-free programs through the three-month trial of SiriusXM Satellite Radio. You can also connect your music-loaded flash drive or MP3 player through the USB port. Gracenote® will even organize your music library by populating song information and album art. Seamless Technology Features Sophistication and ease are highlighted within the 2013 Malibu, which continues throughout its technology features. From the mobile technology that puts control and convenience in the palm of your hand, to effortless navigation available to help you stay on the right path, Malibu was designed with your comfort and convenience in mind.

BUILT FOR SAFETY

Before Protection is great, but prevention is better. The 2013 Malibu was designed with that in mind, offering technologies that can help avoid collisions altogether including 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, traction control and the StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System. There’s also the available Lane Departure Warning that lets you know when you’re wandering from your lane without using your turn signal (above 25 mph), and available advanced Forward Collision Alert that signals, when you’re rapidly approaching a vehicle, that a collision may become imminent. During In the event of a collision, Malibu is equipped to help protect you and your passengers. For the first time, Malibu now includes 10 airbags including knee air bags for the driver and front passenger. Structural integrity of the vehicle is important during a collision and Malibu provides an extremely strong, stiff body and an ultra-high-strength steel safety cage, along with rollover protection. After Every Malibu offers the security of OnStar®with Automatic Crash Response, standard for the first six months. Built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar Advisor who is immediately connected to you through your vehicle to see if you need help sent to your exact location — even if you can’t respond.

We want our customers to know that when you buy a BMW Certified Pre-Owned vehicle from us, you’re getting the absolute best. If you’re looking at a BMW on any other dealer’s lot, it’s probably already been turned down by a certified pre-owned BMW dealer.

AUTO NEWS: Consumer Reports 2013 Annual Car Brand Report Cards: Lexus, Subaru & Mazda Earn Top Honors YONKERS, NY—With a current crop of luxury models that are quiet, comfortable, fuel efficient, and among the most reliable, Lexus has earned the best overall score in Consumer Reports’ 2013 annual Car Brand Report Cards.

Lexus’ models are rarely sporty, but the brand’s overall score of 79 was earned on a foundation of plush and very reliable vehicles. Consumer Reports currently Recommends 100-percent of the Lexus vehicles it has tested. “That is quite a feat for a brand whose cars are brimming with technology including impressive hybrid drivetrains and complicated infotainment systems,” said Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports. For 2013, Consumer Reports took a different approach than in previous years for its annual brand report cards story. CR graded each automaker’s individual brands rather than calculating a single score for all the brands under one carmaker. For example, Toyota, Lexus, and Scion models were each scored separately this year instead of being incorporated into one overall score for Toyota. The same was true for Honda, Ford, Nissan, General Motors, Chrysler and other large manufacturers that market several brands. Just off Lexus’ pace are Subaru and Mazda, with deadheat report-card scores of 76. Consumer Reports notes that both brands build solid cars with good handling, fuel economy, and versatility at relatively affordable prices. Subaru scores points for the sportiness of some models, including the new BRZ sports car. Testers found the BRZ great fun to drive, and its ratings improved the brand’s overall score. Mazda models are among the most reliable cars. Most deliver a good blend of practicality, sportiness, and efficiency. The company also moved forward with the sporty new CX-5 SUV and its line of fuel-efficient Skyactiv engines. Consumer Reports currently Recommends 89 percent of the Mazda models it has tested. Overall, eight of the top 10 scores were earned by Japanese brands. Toyota and Acura brands round out

the top five with a report card score of 74. Honda and Toyota’s scores have been buoyed by the significant strides the automakers made with their respective redesigns of the Accord and Camry. Both handle better than their predecessors and get impressive fuel economy. For 2013, Honda delivered a solid, speedy refresh of the Civic that put it back on Consumer Reports Recommended list after the unimpressive 2012 redesign had fallen off. Honda and Acura ranked closely, with Acura achieving a higher test score. Honda is still dragged down by the low scoring Insight and CR-Z. Nissan brought up the rear among Japanese brands, weighed down by its low scoring and unreliable large trucks and SUVs, but still managed to land midpack among all automakers. The redesigned four-cylinder Altima delivered impressive fuel economy, though it wasn’t as engaging to drive as the previous model. The company’s luxury Infiniti brand placed four slots higher, thanks to its excellent G and M sports sedans, although the G is due to be replaced this summer.

DETROIT’S STRUGGLES

General Motors is revamping its lineup and building several promising models, but some of its brands still anchor the bottom of Consumer Reports Brand Report Cards. Cadillac scored three places ahead of Chevrolet and GMC, based largely on the strength of the CTS. Cadillac’s small and midsized models perform well and their reliability is average. Some of its newer designs are hurt by complicated CUE controls. Buick, with subpar reliability, lagged farther behind, just ahead of Ford and Chrysler. Ford’s and Lincoln’s overall scores have been dragged down by various issues. The MyFord Touch and MyLincoln Touch control interfaces are very difficult to use, and electronic problems in those systems have affected Ford’s reliability scores. Ford vehicles’ road-test scores have also been handicapped by some models’ unrefined dual-clutch automated manual transmissions and a new lineup of EcoBoost turbocharged engines that don’t deliver the performance and fuel economy of some competitors’ larger engines. “That’s unfortunate because many of Ford’s new models ride and handle as well as European luxury cars costing much more. And Ford’s latest hybrids, the Fusion Hybrid and C-Max, are impressive,” Fisher said. None of Chrysler’s brands fared well. The only Dodge Consumer Reports recommends is the Durango SUV. Although the new Dart is an improvement over the 41 • DRIVE ARKANSAS • March 7, 2013

car it replaced, it still lags behind the best compact sedans. Jeep doesn’t fare much better; the only model that is CR Recommended is the V6 Grand Cherokee. The unreliable Wrangler joins the clumsy Compass and Patriot in weighing down the brand. The Chrysler brand is saddled with many older, uncompetitive models. Only the V6 Chrysler 300 scored well and is reliable. Overall, Consumer Reports Recommends fewer than half of the domestic models the organization has tested, and most of them come from Chevrolet and GMC. Consumer Reports calculates each brand’s overall score using an equally weighted composite of the road-test and reliability scores for each of its tested models. Reliability scores are based on information that CR’s subscribers provided during the organization’s Annual Auto Survey. For a brand to be included, Consumer Reports must have test results and reliability data for at least three models. That’s why CR’s 2013 rankings do not include Fiat, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mitsubishi, Porsche, Ram, or Smart: Each had too few models for which CR had adequate reliability data. Several sell fewer than three models. Ratings on individual models from those makers are available at www.ConsumerReports.org. The complete report and scores for all 13 automakers in Consumer Reports Car Brand Report Cards for 2013 is available in the April issue of Consumer Reports and

at www.ConsumerReports.org starting February 26, 2013.

Brad here from 4x4 Offroad Outfitters. I wanted to take some time and answer a question that I get a lot in the store: What upgrade should I do to my Jeep first? If you ever plan to take your Jeep offroad then the answer is easy, a winch! Sure you could start with a lift, fancy wheels and tires, or other accessories. But let me tell you, the first time you get stuck and you're not close to anyone or anything, you will be glad you started with a winch! There are tons of winches out on the market today. They range in price and size, anything from small 4 wheeler winches to Warn 16,5000 pound winches. My rule of thumb is to get a winch that is one and a half times the weight of your vehicle and round up. For example, a new 4 door Jeep Wrangler tips the scale right around 4,350 pounds. So, with my math skills, 1.5 x 4350 = 6,525 but Since they don't make a 7,000 pound winch I would go for an 8,000 pound winch. Of all the brands that are out there my personal favorite is Warn. Warn has had a great name in the world of winches for a long time. Recently they came out with an "entry level series" of winches called the VR series. These are very reasonably priced starting at $480 for an 8,000 pound with steel cable. This line of Warn still undergoes the same quality control that all of Warns' winches go through. They are also backed by Warns limited lifetime warranty. I am running a VR8000s on the front of my 2012 two door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. The "s" stands for synthetic rope vs steel cable. The winch with synthetic rope is more expensive coming in at $725, but there are more pros than cons to synthetic rope in my opinion. I will cover that in another article. For me, the Warn VR8000s was the best choice. For you, it might be the Smittybilt XRC8. The XRC8 is a lower priced winch at $300. Usually I would shy away from a winch with such a low price figuring that the quality wasn't there, but I have sold a ton of these winches and have had very little issues out of them. For the price, they are great winches. No matter which winch you choose, I know you will be happy knowing you can get home at the end of the day. Stop by my shop, 4x4 Offroad Outfitters, and let us help you pick out the winch that is best for you.
