Interesting On Paper: 2007 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx SS

“The Chevrolet Malibu Maxx is going to save GM from bankruptcy and disaster” — said nobody in 2007. But the Maxx was an interesting take on the 5-door hatchback-ish wagon that is reminiscent of the Olds Cutlass Aeroback or the Corolla Liftback — both of which came out decades earlier. However, the Malibu Maxx SS added a 3.9 liter LZ9 pushrod V6 to the Malibu chassis for an earth shattering 240 horsepower and 240 ft-lbs of torque mated to a 4-speed slushbox. Do you suppose anyone at GM in 2007 even thought that was a sporty or super sporty? Find this 2007 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx SS offered for $6,500 in Groton, CT via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
