The Chevrolet Malibu is a mid-size car produced by the American manufacturer General Motors (GM) from 1964 to 1983 and from 1997 to present.
The Malibu began as a trim-level of the Chevrolet Chevelle, but became its own model line in 1978.
Originally a rear-wheel-drive intermediate, GM revived the Malibu nameplate as a front-wheel-drive car in 1997.
It is named after the city of Malibu, California.
Traditionally, the Malibu was marketed primarily in North America, but the new Malibu model introduced in 2012 has been sold in other countries.
