The Chevrolet Malibu MAXX is a long-wheelbase variant of the regular Malibu, whose extended roofline and rear cargo hatch suggest a sporty wagon. While Malibu seems destined to disappear into a crowd, the MAXX looks just as determined to stand out and be noticed. The Maxx is built in three trim levels: LT, LTZ, and SS. The Maxx LT is better equipped than its sedan counterpart, and comes with cruise control; P215/60R16, all-season tires on silver-painted, steel wheels; and other highline features. Similar options packages are available for the Maxx as for the sedan. Its exclusives include a rear-seat audio system, DVD/CD rear-seat entertainment center, remote control and a monitor that flips up from the front console. The SS model gets a 240hp 3.9-liter V-6, while the other models get the 217hp 3.5-liter V-6. For 2007, the MAXX gets variable valve timing for its 3.5-liter V-6 and standard side curtain airbags.
