Good riddance... I don't care for the trend of smaller boosted engines in place of NA engines... they will always be more stressed (and are more complicated) to provide the same amount of performance and mileage, just doesn't sound like a recipe for reliability to me.

X2 on performance and reliability



They had no business putting an I4 in there in the first place.....owners paying another .50+ cents a gal for the honor of having less hp than the stock V6 ....those purchasing the RS for a sporty look were better off spending a few more bucks to get the Redline package on a Premiere.



My '16 Malibu had that 2.0T hamster on crack powered engine which is designed to operate for performance on premium gas......it will operate on regular but then runs like a turtle....operating both on regular the 1.5T in my replacement '18 Malibu is just as quick was my 2.0T running detuned on regular.

Current Chevys -'16 Silverado LT;'18 Malibu LT Redline;'18 Traverse Premier Redline<br /><br />Previous&nbsp; Chevys:16 Malibu LT2 '17 Impala;'16 MalibuLT;'15 Camaro LS;'15 Traverse; '13,'12 and '07 Avalanche LTs; '11 Tahoe LT; '13 &'11 Malibu LTs; '08 Trailblazer;'06 Colorado WT.....
