2011 Chevrolet Cruze
2011 Chevrolet Cruze
The Chevrolet Cruze is an all new compact four door that is offering a whole lot of features in a very small package. GM has never had a very successful small car and has many problems with their choices for the compact models they have offered. The Cruze hopefully proves to change Chevrolets track record and offer an award winning package to the public. This small sedan is going to be in direct competition with the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Ford Focus so the designers and engineers at Chevrolet knew they had their work cut out for themselves.

The Cruze comes with a 6 speed automatic transmission that is not even an option for most of the others in its class. OnStar, 4 airbags, built in navigation; XM Radio and a traction control system (StabiliTrack) all come standard on the most basic Cruze. Many of these options are not even offered little love bundled as standard feature on any of the other compacts in the Cruzes class. Not only that, but the Chevrolet Cruze is also the most fuel efficient in its class, claiming over 36 MPG on the highway this may be the car to beat in the compact class this year.
2010 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Green Front Three Quarter
The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze and 2010 Jeep Wrangler are being investigated for fires after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration received two complaints about the compact sedan and eight reports regarding the SUV.
2012 Volkswagen Passat TDI Front Three Quarter
Diesel vehicles are no longer taboo in the U.S., and The Detroit News reports that consumer interest in the oil-burning alternatives could continue to grow in the coming years.
2012 GMC Sierra Front Three Quarter
General Motors reported yet another month of success in September 2011, with monthly sales up 20 percent year-over-year to 207,145 vehicles. Once again, rapid sales of the Chevrolet Cruze compact helped pad GM’s sales release, in addition to increasing demand for its perennial bread-and-butter: pickup trucks. GM’s truck sales climbed 34.3 percent over September 2010.
2013 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ Front Three Quarter1
Though some have pegged the upcoming 2013 Chevrolet Malibu as a potential game-changer for the U.S. market, the car’s impact could be even more far-reaching as the mid-size sedan will also be offered in Europe for the first time. European models typically have diesel engines available alongside gasoline offerings, and the Malibu will be no exception, as a four-cylinder diesel option has been announced for the European market.
2011 Chevrolet Cruze Side In Motion
The Chevy Cruze ECO achieves a commendable 42 mpg, but does so with such drastic measures such as ultra-low rolling resistance tires and the lack of a spare tire. But General Motors hopes to make the Cruze a fun-to-drive gas sipper by offering a powertrain not often found in domestic compact cars.
