Chevrolet Cruze to Debut at LA Auto Show

November 17, 2009

LOS ANGELES - Chevrolet will debut the U.S. production version of the Cruze sedan at the Los Angeles Auto Show on Dec. 2. The Cruze, along with the much-anticipated Volt electric vehicle, will give show attendees visitors a close-up view of Chevrolet's expanding lineup of gas-friendly to gas-free products.

"With expected highway fuel economy up to 40 miles per gallon, Cruze will be extremely gas friendly while the Volt electric vehicle can be operated gas-free," said Brent Dewar, vice president, Chevrolet. The vehicle is designed to achieve class-leading highway fuel economy using a new family of efficient engines that include a 1.4L turbo.

The Cruze has already launched in Europe and Asia and has undergone refinement for America. It goes on sale in the U.S. in the third quarter of 2010 but has already logged more than 4 million miles in quality and durability testing worldwide, making it one of the most globally tested Chevrolet products prior to a U.S. launch, according to the manufacturer.

Despite its compact size, Cruze will offer a spacious interior and cargo capacity, along with infotainment amenities such as a navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity, XM Satellite Radio.
