We haven't heard about the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu but GM's Executive Vice President of Global Product Development has promised it will have a "groundbreaking design."

Speaking to Automotive News, Mark Reuss acknowledged the current model is a tad lackluster but promised the next-generation model will be a major improvement. He declined to go into specifics but hinted it will become one of the company's most distinctive and dramatic new models in years.

Those are some pretty bold claims but previous spy photos have shown the 2016 Malibu will have curvaceous body work and a dramatic rear end.

Little else is known about the car but it is expected to ride on an updated version of the Epsilon II platform and feature carryover engines.
