In the spirit of a clean environment and keeping your fuel cost down, Ford is introducing a turbocharged four-cylinder engine for the new 2013 Chevy Malibu.

The 2013 Chevy Malibu with the Ecotec 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine will be available this year, and it is rated at 269 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque at a very low 1,700 rpm. That is plenty of power and torque to put it in the V6 engine range. The new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine will replace out the 3.6-liter V6 engine, which produces about 252 horsepower.

According to Ford, the 2013 Chevy Malibu with turbocharged four-cylinder engine can sprint from 0-60 mph in just 6.3 seconds, and that is faster than most standard sedans in its class. Ford has not published the fuel economy rating for the this turbocharged engine yet, but we expect it to have at least 21 mpg city and 28 mph highway.

In addition to the turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the 2013 Chevy Malibu base model will be available with the Ecotec 2.5-liter engine delivers about 197 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque in natural aspirated form.

All models go on sale this summer, and with the Malibu Turbo version coming this fall. Currently, the Chevrolet Malibu Eco is on sale at $25,995, including a $760 destination charge.
