New 2023 Chevy Malibu USA Rumors, Redesign – Chevrolet recently stopped building a number of sedans in North America including the Cruze, Volt, and Impala. Now, it seems Malibu could also be on its way out.

This year it dealt automakers a much different hand than any of them could prepare for as a coronavirus pandemic sweeps across the world. But, although car sales are still hanging around at a much lower rate than before COVID-19, people are still buying cars.

2023 Chevy Malibu Model

While previous reports have suggested the model could get a facelift around 2022, GM Authority reports malibu will “likely be dropped immediately after the 2023 model year.”

The report is light on specifics but suggests Malibu’s future is affected by declining sales and the coronavirus pandemic. As they see it, before the pandemic, Malibu is expected to last until the 2025 model year.

You might expect this list to be full of sedans and hatchbacks, knowing Americans can’t get enough SUVs and pickup trucks. However, there are some surprises when it comes to the slowest new car sales.

Although nothing official, Malibu sales have dropped significantly in recent years. Chevrolet sold 227,881 units in the United States in 2016, but sales fell to 185,857 units in 2017 and 144,542 units in 2018. Last year, U.S. sales fell to 131,917 units less than the Ford Fusion already had a date with the undertaker.

In response to declining sales, Chevrolet downgraded the Malibu Hybrid for 2020. Now, it seems that the decline could also accelerate the exit of the model.

The news may not be all bad as previous reports have suggested the Malibu could be replaced by an electric vehicle. GM may have hinted at this possibility in February when it unveiled an updated electric vehicle roadmap that includes a “Low Roof Car” that promises to be “efficient.”

Needless to say, malibu’s demise would eliminate one of Chevrolet’s last remaining sedans. The only other Chevy sedan currently offered in the United States is the Sonic which is also rumored to be living with borrowed time.
