New Chevrolet Cruze to be Unveiled to North America on June 24th



A compact car that delivered a big gain for General Motors, the Cruze finally gave the American-based automaker an economy car that would go one-on-one with global leaders such as the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla or the Ford Focus. An intense dedication to solid engineering and safety (including ten standard airbags) has made the car a proud, solid transition that replaced 15 other compact cars in the worldwide General Motors portfolio prior to 2008. As well as attempting to foster a better image of compact cars under Chevrolet in North America, the Cruze has actively been involved in building the global impression for the brand in markets Chevrolet wasn't previously a household name. As of mid-2015, over 3.5 million Cruze compact cars have been sold worldwide

On June 24th, the second-generation Chevrolet Cruze is set to make its debut. Promising a larger yet lighter version of the economy car, the 2016 model year Cruze pledges to build on the successes of the outgoing compact sedan. New powertrains and technology will also be part of the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze. One such detail presented of the 2016 Cruze ahead of its introduction is both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay availability. While a new Chevrolet Cruze sedan is almost guaranteed, a different body styles such as a hatchback or wagon version of the car has yet to be seen in North American. It's unclear if North American audiences will Reports from Chevrolet has effectively killed the prospect of a two-door Cruze (the 2016 addition of a four-cylinder powered Camaro has been viewed an acceptable provision to the market).

In China, a new Cruze has already appeared (shown below) exhibiting a more streamlined exterior adhering to a 0.28 drag coefficient. The Chinese version of the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze is powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine and 1.4-liter turbocharged powerplant from the General Motors Ecotec engine family. a dual-clutch transmission is also being marketed on the Chinese-sold 2016 Cruze. It's unclear how much styling or engineering inspiration Chevrolet will apply to the North American version of the 2016 Cruze. From the teaser image of the American Cruze, there does appear to be a slight chrome treatment between the headlamp and grille not seen on the car for China. Also according to specs, the Chevrolet Cruze offered in China is actually smaller than the previous-generation whereas the North American has stated being larger.





Another new Chevrolet? Yes indeed! In the first six months of 2015, Chevrolet has been aggressive in reshaping their product line-up in bold, modern style and technologies. The bowtie revitalization started with a new version of their plug-in hybrid Volt in January. Following the Chevrolet Volt, major 2016-model year refreshes of the Equinox and Malibu appeared. Last month, the performance-seeking Chevrolet loyalists received a gift in the form of the all-new Camaro. By 2016, Chevrolet pledges that more than 95 percent of their model line will be less than three years old.
