Malibu LT models (there are two versions) come with more features and higher prices, and they are available with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine and other features not offered on the LS. The LS, which starts at $21,975, comes only with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder.
The Malibu 1LT adds standard items such as aluminum wheels, body-colored power side mirrors, floormats and steering-wheel audio controls, and the price goes up to $22,825. The Malibu 2LT adds Bluetooth connectivity, a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, automatic dimming mirror with a compass and a remote starter. The 2LT starts at $25,235. (None of the prices include a $760 destination charge.) The Bluetooth, power seat and remote starter are optional on the 1LT; only the Bluetooth is available on the LS. A USB input and a 110-volt three-prong outlet also are available on both LTs but not on the LS.
