Watch out vehicles of 2011, Chevy is changing it up! As of 2011 Chevrolet will be making 75% of its vehicles available with 6 speed automatic transmissions (as if it already wasn’t already the market leader for that!).
So what does this mean to you? … Better fuel economy!!
At the same time that Chevy is introducing more of its line-up with 6 speed automatic transmissions, it is also introducing the 2010 Hydra-Matic 6T40 (MH8) Six Speed FWD Automatic Transaxle. “Our advanced six-speed transmissions offer customers wide-ranging benefits,” said Charlie Klein, GM Global Mass, Energy & Aerodynamics Director, “including reduced cost of ownership, improved vehicle performance, lower CO2 emissions, and a lesser dependence on foreign oil. As such, the wide availability of six-speed transmissions is a real advantage for Chevrolet customers.”
The vehicles that will have this amazing transmission will include: the Avalanche, Camaro and Suburban … as well as the 2011 Chevy Cruze!
