Chevy Cruze from Bob Maguire Chevrolet is changing the expectations of what a compact car should be by giving you more, not less.
More of everything like better fuel economy, higher safety standards and the latest in mobile technology – all wrapped up in a sleek, luxurious design.
With an EPA estimated 42 MPG, Cruze offers the best highway mileage of any gas engine in America and gives drivers peace-of-mind with best-in-class 10 standard airbags1. Plus more mobile technology like Bluetooth Wireless, available USB port and turn-by-turn navigation from Onstar2.
Cruze is a driving experience you won’t expect from a compact. But represents everything you should expect from Bob Maguire Chevrolet.
The following are a dozen fuel savings tips from Chevrolet Certified Service at Bob Maguire Chevrolet:
1. Engine Maintenance – A properly maintained engine can improve fuel economy about 4 percent, according to the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Fixing a serious issue – such as faulty oxygen sensor – can boost mileage up
to 40 percent. Never ignore a service-engine-soon light.
2. Pump Up – Properly inflated tires improve gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent. Properly inflated tires are safer and
last longer. Under-inflated tires can lower fuel economy by 0.3 percent for every one pound-per-square-inch
drop in the pressure of all four tires. Do not rely solely on the tire pressure monitoring system to detect an underinflated
tire – it’s best to check tires with a good gauge once a month and check your owner’s manual for more
3. Unpack – Carrying unneeded cargo makes your vehicle work harder and use more gas. The EPA says an extra
100 pounds reduces fuel economy up to 2 percent – even more in smaller vehicles. A loaded roof rack cuts fuel
economy by up to 5 percent. About a quarter of each gallon of gas goes toward overcoming wind resistance, so
when cargo rides on top of the vehicle, fuel economy is reduced. Even empty ski/snowboard and bike racks can
affect aerodynamics, so remove them when the seasons are over.
4. Slow Down – While each vehicle reaches its optimal fuel economy at a different speed (or range of speeds), gas
mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph, according to the EPA. Every 5 mph over 60 mph is like
adding an additional 24 cents per gallon for gas.
5. Avoid Idling – A car gets 0 mpg when the engine is idling: While it does take a small amount of fuel to restart a
vehicle, 15 minutes in the drive-through can burn through a quarter of a gallon of fuel. So that dollar menu is more
like a $2 menu.
6. Chill Out – Speeding, rapid acceleration and braking can lower gas mileage by 33 percent on the highway and 5
percent in city driving.
7. Put it in Overdrive – Using an overdrive gear on the highway reduces engine speed, saving both fuel and engine
8. Roll ‘Em Down Around Town – Air conditioning reduces fuel efficiency by up to 10 percent. Avoid using the air
conditioner by rolling down the windows at speeds below 40 mph. At speeds above 45 mph, wind drag uses more
fuel than running the A/C.
9. Unclog – It’s hard to run if you can’t breathe. Older cars without fuel injection and computer-controlled technology
can lose 14 percent of their fuel economy because of a dirt-clogged air filter, which also can damage the engine.
A clean air filter improves acceleration. An air filter full of dirt makes the engine work harder and can let in
impurities that damage the engine. Replacing a severely plugged filter improves fuel economy by up to 14 percent,
according to the EPA. In modern cars, replacing a dirty or clogged air filter improves acceleration performance.
10. Use the Right Oil – Because oil reduces engine friction and friction makes an engine work harder, using the
manufacturer’s recommended grade of oil improves fuel economy by 1 percent to 2 percent.
11. Plan your Trips – Taking your kids to soccer or swim classes? Grocery shopping? Plan routes and timing to avoid
heavy periods of traffic congestion.
12. Cap Check – Loose or poorly fitting gas gaps not only can trigger a “check engine light” warning; they send 147
million gallons of gasoline into the air as vapor every year, according to a report by the Discovery Channel. A
missing or poorly fitting cap can reduce fuel economy by 1 to 2 percent.
The Chevrolet’s all-new Cruze sedan making its world premiere in several months, revealing a dynamic four-door coupe that proves exciting design and value are not mutually exclusive. Cruze features a dramatic re-interpretation of the traditional sedan featuring Chevrolet’s new global design language that is becoming a signature on all new products carrying the gold bowtie. Cruze’s arching roof-line, extending from the steeply raked windshield to its sloping rear pillars and short rear deck, brings coupe-like proportions to a compact sedan.
Cruze is Wider and longer than most of its competitors and has a purposeful stance with its wheels located at the outer edges of the tautly drawn bodywork. Noticeably tight body panel fits and a restrained use of exterior trim add to a high quality, ‘hewn from solid’ appearance. Cruze’s dramatic profile is matched by bold front styling, with large headlamp housings that wrap around the front corners and sweep up, arrow-like, into the fenders and sculpted hood. Other distinct design themes include a concave shoulder line, the two-tier grille and a “wheels-out/body-in” stance. Inside, Cruze features a ‘twin cockpit’ design motif, first introduced in the iconic Corvette sports car.
“Our goal in designing Cruze was to be bold, not evolutionary,” says chief designer Taewan Kim. “We wanted to take a big step forward, making a strong design statement for Chevrolet products around the world.”
Chevrolet’s progressive design is also reflected in the quality of Cruze’s interior. The use of grained surfaces, soft-touch materials and low gloss trim panels ensures a quality ambience that echoes the clean, harmonious design of the exterior.
Cruze will be available with 16-valve, 1.6-liter (112 hp/82 kW) and 1.8-liter (140 hp/103 kW) gasoline engines featuring variable valve timing (VVT) on both inlet and exhaust sides, giving more power as well as better fuel economy and lower emissions.
