Chevy Malibu: Extreme Car Makeover!
It seems pretty apparent after several days at the North American International Auto Show, that GM is serious about building cars that consumers will want. The re-emphasis on design is evident in the new Chevy Malibu, unveiled at the show. I spoke with the car’s exterior designer, Clay Dean, who was obviously proud of the production vehicle. It will soon have a hybrid component to it and, Deane says, his team is already working on the next version, due out in three years.
Reporter’s Notes: We must be making quite an impression on the large automakers with our content here on The Next Gear. So much so that GM invited us for an all expense paid trip to Detroit to cover the North American International Auto Show. While there, they wined and dined us and gave us unprecedented access to designers, high level corporate bigwigs and company spokespeople, yet with no requirement that we publish anything about them, only that we disclose this enticement. It was an opportunity we are happy to share with you, our audience. I encourage you to leave your feedback!
