Even though an all-new Chevrolet Malibu is on the horizon for 2012, Chevrolet will be rolling out improvements to the current Malibu to compete with the 2010 Ford Fusion, reports

No specific updates were mentioned, though the article says Chevrolet will focus its push on marketing and product improvements. We’d guess these would focus on interior updates to put the Malibu more on par with the new Equinox crossover.

In order for these changes to make any sense, Chevrolet will have to release these enhancements by mid-2011 before the all-new Malibu debuts in 2012.
