2019 Chevy Malibu fuel efficiency and range

When you get a sedan, you are going to care about fuel economy, and you may also want to know how long you can go in between fill-ups. The Chevy Malibu is an impressive machine both inside and out, but it also has impressive fuel economy. See what we mean as we explore the 2019 Chevy Malibu fuel efficiency and range. For the purposes of this overview, we will not be looking at the Malibu Hybrid since it isn’t widely available.

There are two engines available for the 2019 Chevy Malibu, and both are very efficient. Most of the lineup comes standard with a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine. This is the engine you will find on the L, LS, RS, and LT trims.

If you upgrade to the top Premier trim, then you will get a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. See how efficient each of them are below.

If you want to calculate range, you will need to know how large the fuel tank is. Surprisingly, the Malibu fuel tank is quite large. It has a 15.8-gallon tank that can back up even your longest trips. Now let’s see how this all adds together.

How far can the Malibu go on a tank of gas?

Determining range is a simple equation. Once you have both the fuel economy and the fuel tank size, you just multiply them together. However, we have three efficiency numbers for each engine to contend with. To solve that problem, we will just do it for each one.

For the most part, the combined range will likely be the most relevant to you, but if you are going on a long road trip mostly on the highway or if your commute only takes you through the city, then the others may be important to you too.

Malibu 1.5-Liter Engine Range

City: 458.2 Miles
Highway: 568.8 Miles
Combined: 505.6 Miles

Malibu 2.0-liter Engine Range

City: 347.6 Miles
Highway: 505.6 Miles
Combined: 410.8 Miles
