2019 Chevy Malibu Gets an RS Trim of Its Own

Chevy has been consistent in spreading its popular RS package across its lineup, and now this package will hit one of its largest-volume sellers, the Malibu. In addition to the new RS package, the 2019 Malibu will also undergo a light refresh.

Like all other RS models, the 2019 Malibu RS will add a touch of sportiness to this sedan. On the outside, the stylish additions include 18-inch machined wheels, a black sport grille, black bowtie emblems, a rear spoiler, and dual exhaust exits. Inside, the RS’ updates include a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, black cloth seats, and an 8-inch Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system.

In addition to the new RS trim, the entire 2019 Malibu lineup gets a refreshed appearance. The updates on the exterior include a new front fascia that’s comprised of new integrated headlights and a bolder lower grille. LT and Premier models also gain new signature LED daytime running lights.

Around back, a new rear valence widens the gap between the exhaust exits, while ever-so-slightly-revised taillights round out the rear updates.

Other changes to the 2019 Malibu lineup include a new standard 8-inch Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system, a new 8-inch driver information center on Premier models, a new standard rearview camera system, heated outboard rear seats on Premium trims, new colors and wheel designs, and a standard continuously variable transmission in place of the old six-speed automatic unit.

Full pricing details are not available yet, but Chevy did announce that it expect the Malibu RS to start around $25,000. The 2019 Malibu lineup will be in showrooms in the fall of 2018.
