Some vehicles are driven in India much before they go to US and Chevrolet Cruze is one such example. Ruling the diesel segment with competitive inputs provided at a reasonable cost makes it to stand with a handsome market snatch.
It seems like diesel trend is catching up storm in America, as rates of fuel gallons are at all time high. Chevrolet with other carmakers is gearing up to cash in on the latest trend and Chicago Auto Show is a best opportunity to roll down the balls.
Launch date is slotted at 7th February 2013 followed by sales in the month April – May of same year. To reach up the scorching numbers, it will be produced at a manufacturing unit near Youngstown, Ohio.
Mr. Mark Reuss, top brass of GM for North America is all excited to make quick bucks with Diesel Cruze in US market, also expects to roll out some more oil burner models for making a good grip in the next two years. Luxury carmakers like Jeep and Porsche are also going the same way.
As per our expectations, GM will launch 2.0 liter jag with a maximum power of 166 PS @ 3800 RPM and 380 Nm of torque @ 2000 RPM, the one which is used in India. Maybe, some minute changes would be done to suit climatic changes but majorly it will near to those figure only.
On an average, Chevy Cruze delivers a fuel efficiency of 17.3 kmpl in both the transmission of 6-speed manual and automatic.
Lastly, we also expect this US-spec to be loaded with all wheel drive (AWD) option in the future.
