Families looking for a sedan that will comfortably power along at highway speeds, while delivering excellent mpg's, are generally perfectly content with the base four-cylinder engines on the market today. For everyone else though looking to keep things a little spicy, a port-injected 3.6-liter V-6 would be one of the next options, until now, with the introduction of the 2013 Malibu turbo.

GM's new 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine is essentially the same basic unit available in the Cadillac ATS 2.0T. Except for different intake and exhaust requirements, the twin-scroll 2.0-liter engine is identical. Yet the Malibu puts out 259 ponies which is still seven more than the old 3.6 liter V-6 engine.

The other four-cylinder engine option offered in the 2013 Malibu is the 2.5-liter inline-four, it's one of GM's second-generation Ecotec engines and it generates 197 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque, placing it near the top of the power rankings and top in torque among mid-size naturally aspirated four cylinder engines. And now you can add even better performance, by simply upgrading the existing air filter in either of the engines, with a K&N 33-2497 high performance air filter. This high flow air filter offers excellent engine protection, while designed to increase horsepower and torque. It drops into existing factory air box just like the disposable paper air filter.

Due to its unique pleated design which produces a large surface area, the K&N 33-2497 reusable air filter offers extended maintenance intervals. Depending on your driving conditions, servicing intervals can go up to 50,000 miles. Then when filter maintenance is needed, cleaning the air filter is as simple as following the four easy steps on a K&N Recharger Kit.

The K&N 33-2497 reusable air filter will be the only air filter you'll ever need to purchase for your 2013 Malibu - K&N backs that promise with their celebrated Million Mile Limited Warranty.
