Holden’s engineering team has been recruited to help fine-tune GM's new mid-sized Malibu that will go on sale in Australia late next year.

Engineers from Holden’s Powertrain Engineering team are currently calibrating the Malibu for GM’s global markets, where it will play an important role in the Chevrolet line-up.

The Malibu is being calibrated at Holden’s Lang Lang Proving Ground in Victoria and is also being evaluated on public roads. It is pictured here on Phillip Island.

Holden’s work forms part of GM’s global work share strategy, which uses the available resources and skills of the company’s engineers from around the world to perform development work on future models. It will see the team continue to work on Malibu until the end of 2012.

Holden will bring the Malibu nameplate to Australia for the first time in late 2012 with a line-up of four cylinder engines. Outside Australia, it will be sold under the Chevrolet name in nearly 100 countries around the world.
