2011 Chevy Cruze Looks like a Winner

Chevrolet’s Cobalt was a much needed upgrade on the old Cavalier, and while it is a strong seller GM knows it can do better. Now the Chevrolet Cruze with take the Cobalt’s place in 2010 as a 2011 model. The Cruze features a bisected grille which was first introduced on the Malibu and then later with the 2009 Aveo5. Very obvious differences however, are all the angles and creases as opposed to the Malibu’s soft and curvy body style.

 

“Our goal in designing the Cruze was to be gold, not evolutionary, we wanted to take a big step forward, making a strong design statement for Chevrolet products around the world.” Commented designer Taewan Kim.

 

There will be three engine choices available from launch. A 112-horsepower 1.6L engine, 140-horsepower 1.8L engine, diesel fans will also be able to order a Cruze with a 2.0-liter, turbo-charged engine.

GM May Sell Mini-Cars to Fuel-Conscious U.S. Buyers

General Motors may begin selling a mini-car more than a foot shorter than anything else that is currently out in the U.S. to get back buyers that have been deterred by record fuel prices. GM may bring the production version of the Chevrolet Beat to the U.S. The car gets almost as much as 40 miles per gallon, which has only been topped in the U.S. by hybrids only. The introduction of the Beat would be one step in downsizing and shifting away from fossil fuel-based vehicles.

Besides the Beat, GM is weighing a list of options to refocus their lineup of autos to be more fuel-efficient rather than performance based. They include the introduction of a small pickup and also an expansion of the number of versions of the Volt plug-in in the U.S. GM is also trying to increase the production and availability of the Chevrolet Cobalt sedan.

GM unveiled the Beat as a prototype at the New York auto show in April 2007, along with two other 40 MPG Chevrolet small-car concepts. Aside from two hybrid models, the only car in the U.S. that even comes close to the Beat’s projected fuel efficiency is the Smart car with 36 MPG.
