Both Chevrolet and Toyota have released prices for 2014 model year vehicles. GM has priced the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, with a starting price of $22,965. The new Chevrolet Malibu has an EPA-estimated 25/36 mpg city/highway, a significant improvement in city fuel economy, thanks to the stop/start technology.
The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu will hit dealers this fall, and will be the first midsize sedan to offer start/stop technology as a standard feature in the United States. New features for the Malibu include a revised front-end appearance, roomier rear seats, a redesigned center console, suspension enhancements, and available side blind zone alert and rear cross traffic alert. “In this competitive midsize segment, there is no standing still. In addition to fuel economy improvement, the 2014 Malibu is roomier and more refined than its predecessor,” said Chris Perry, Chevrolet marketing vice president, in a statement. Pricing for the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu breaks down like this:
- Malibu LS: $22,965
- Malibu 1LT: $24,335
- Malibu 2LT: $26,040
- Malibu LTZ: $28,515
Meanwhile, the Toyota RAV4 EV’s price is $49,800, and the electric crossover delivers the equivalent of 78 mpge city and 74 mpge highway. However, the real news is that Toyota’s offering a cut-rate lease deal on the crossover through September 3. For only $3,999 due at signing, those interested in leasing the Rav4 EV only have to pay $299 a month for 36 months after $15,400 Lease Cash is applied. For financing, Toyota is offering 0 percent APR for 60 months. These offers are part of the Nationwide Clearance Event, which helps to make room for the new 2014 inventory.Source: General Motors, Toyota
