    Is there going to be a Malibu SS?

    I just saw a commercial during the Olympics which I believe had a red SS badge on the back of the new Malibu. I haven't been able to find the commercial on line to verify this but I again believe I saw a red SS badge. Does anyone know anything about this or was I just seeing things?

    It was probably a "rainbow" you saw on the back of a Malibu

    Here's the new 'Turbo' decal affixed to trunklid (driver's side) on MY 2014 Malibu 3LT and 2LZ models. Perhaps this is what you saw?

    My modes of transportation: CityBus Greater Lafayette, rental cars (usually GM), bicycling, and walking.

    It was in red and on the trunk lid on the drivers side, so that's probably it. I was hoping for a SS but I do remember the commercial saying the Malibu was turbo charged. Thanks for clearing this up for me.

    How did you misread "TURBO" for "SS"?

    To me the title of this thread should have been, "Will GM put lipstick on the pig?"

    Your opinion. I think she is sexy, but I thought the 2013 was actually more masculine

    As far as split grilles go, I tend to like the '13 better than the '14.

    Re: Is there going to be a Malibu SS?

    Better question is when is GM going to release a midsize car that will actually compete in the market? We are looking at replacing our Tahoe with a midsize sedan that gets good fuel economy, and the GM options are pathetic compared to other brands.

    The Malibu has zero rear seat leg space, and the fuel economy numbers are horrible when compared to others. You can get a better equipped Ford Fusion that is a hybrid, getting 47 MPG city and highway and a ton of rear seat room and much better looks for the same price as a Malibu.

    We are seriously leaning towards the Fusion, simply because there is nothing GM offers for the same price point that meet our needs. It's a shame.

    And with the split grill, it could have an SS on the top and the bottom part!
