Looking a little bit softer and decidedly more upscale, the interior of the upcoming 2016 Chevy Cruze cuts the button-count and improves the infotainment.
The 2015 Chevy Cruze brings a new look and more features to the bowtie sedan, including a mobile 4G LTE hotspot for up to seven tech-savvy users.
In America, November is a month of thanks- and I have a lot to be thankful for this year. One of those things is the fact that GM decided to let me drive a 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel from Oak Park, Illinois to Wellington, Ohio to visit friends and family over the Thanksgiving weekend. All […]
The decision to keep Buick alive during the 2009 restructuring of General Motors baffled many, but so far seems to be justified by increased sales and interest from customers. To keep the momentum going, GM is reportedly considering the addition of diesel engines to its lineup, in an effort to make Buick ever more European.
It has been almost 30 years since General Motors embraced a diesel-powered sedan in America, and there is a lot riding on the success or failure of the 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel. With a 46 mpg highway rating though, the new diesel Chevy offers good fuel economy and lots of torque…but is that enough to justify the $25,695 MSRP?
We’ve been looking forward to the reveal of the Chevy Cruze Diesel for some time now, and finally the day has arrived. Annnd…we’re kind of disappointed with both the price and the EPA rating, at least at first glance. But if you take a step back, the Cruze Diesel still has a lot to offer if you’re the kind of person who buys a car, and keeps it.
American automakers have shied away from diesel passenger cars for the past few decades due to bad experiences in the early 1980s. But 2013 could be a watershed year for diesel cars in America, and General Motors is set to lead the way with the Chevy Cruze Diesel, set to debut next month at the Chicago Auto Show.
For the past year there has been plenty of speculation that GM would be bringing a diesel-powered Chevy Cruze to the U.S. market. The target date appears to be 2013, though there is an uncertainty when it comes to which diesel engine GM will opt for. In Austrailia, a 2.0 liter turbodiesel returns up to […]
Two American companies. Two class-leading mid-size pickups. Two completely different paths. Ford has announced that as of December 19th, 2011, Ford Ranger production will cease and the historic Twin Cities Assembly Plant will shut down. Meanwhile, GM announced that it will bring the new global Colorado pickup to America.
It was recently reported that an Australian couple had set the new Guinness Book world record for highest fuel economy getting 64.42 miles per gallon (mpg) across the 48 connected American states. Well, that record has been broken by a pair of hypermilers who just completed the 48 state trip with a fuel economy of 64.55 mpg.
Behind the scenes at Gas 2, we’re basically gearheads – and most of us either own an enviable collection of American icons or have the names of some Serious motorsports and performance tuning firms on our resumes. We love cars, in other words, at least as much as the next guy … we just happen […]
The magic number automakers seem to be striving to hit is 40 mpg highway. It is a nice, around number, and apparently very achievable with today’s technology, given the rapid growth of this group. And today it has a new member; the 2012 Chevy Sonic with the 1.4 liter turbocharged engine.
Two Australian professional hypermilers have broken the record for highest fuel economy in a cross country drive thought all 48 connected States– and they did it in a Chevy Cruze Eco, managing to get an average of 64.42 mpg.
It sounds crazy, perhaps even possible, but according to sources in the Associated Press, GM is planning to sell a diesel-powered Chevy Cruze right here in the U.S. And it could achieve up to 50 mpg…with a healthy dose of torque to go with it.
GM is developing a new 7-speed dry clutch transmission similar in concept to what’s found in cars like the Porsche 997 PDK and Volkswagen’s GTi hot hatch – but the patent filings that came to light last week show that GM’s Chinese partners SAIC are listed right alongside GM. SAIC’s high-level involvement has caused some […]
Road & Track jumped the gun on April Fools Day with this lovely photoshop of a droptop Chevy Volt. Looks good if you ask me. Even better? It’s solar powered. Oh if only it were true. Nerdy, yeah. Wouldn’t it be cool if GM came out with one of these though? The Road & Track […]
Harlan Ellison wrote “The City on the Edge of Forever“, which is Star Trek fan-speak for “Harlan Ellison is awesome“. Mr. Ellison has been called a visionary futurist, and has written for The Outer Limits, The Man From UNCLE, Alfred Hitchcock, and – of course – Star Trek (it’s like “space navy”, whereas Star Wars […]
Small, fuel efficient cars are proliferating like never before. Venerable oldies like the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic are now facing stiff competition from the likes of the 2011 Chevy Cruze, the 2011 Hyundai Elantra, and the just released 2012 Ford Focus. In fact, the competition for small car crown is so hot right […]
2010 was a weird year all around. For green transportation though, this feels like the real and true beginning of fundamental changes in the way Americans get around. Here are five stories I feel broke new ground in green transportation.
