Car Hunters 2011 Chevrolet Cruze Challenge
The all new 2011 Chevy Cruze has enough test miles on its tires to circle the Earth over 160 times. The Cruze made a lot of stops as it went around the globe, each one seemingly more punishing than the last. Chevy Cruze took on driving rain, mountains, deserts, potholes, mud, bad roads, ice, snow, dry heat, humidity and more. After all that, it finally hit the test track and showed just how fun it was to drive. Even after 4,000,000 test miles, there's much more of the Cruze story to tell.
2011 Chevy Cruze Design
An all-star team of international designers pushed the interior boundaries of Cruze. It starts with space and Cruze has plenty of it - more than Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic. And it's easy on the ears too. A triple-sealed, acoustic-laminated glass windshield and liquid-applied sound deadeners are just some of the techniques used to help make the road seen, not heard. Cruze also has available finishing touches: leather seat appointments or unique fabric accents for a sophisticated two-tone look.
2011 Chevy Cruze Fuel
The available small displacement 1.4L turbocharged engine, ideal for Cruze, is designed to deliver efficiency without compromising performance. Coming late 2010, the Cruze Eco is expected to offer an estimated 40 MPG highway.4 Cruze Eco adds ultra-low-rolling resistance tires and other technologies to boost efficiency. And Cruze Eco is decked out with a rear spoiler and 17" wheels, so saving gas will finally look as good as it feels.
2011 Chevy Cruze Safety
Cruze sets itself apart from other compacts on safety with 10 standard airbags,5 including frontal, front seat side-impact, roof-rail head-curtain, rear-seat side impact, second row side, and front knee air bags. Technologies like StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control and four-wheel antilock brakes help you stay on the road and in control. And should the unthinkable ever happen, Cruze is equipped with OnStar® Automatic Crash Response5 standard for the first six months. Built-in sensors can automatically alert an Advisor, who is immediately connected to your vehicle and can request emergency help be sent to your exact GPS location, even if you're unable to respond.
2011 Chevy Cruze Technology
The Cruze blueprint calls for more than you'd expect. That's why every Cruze has the OnStar Directions & Connections plan® - including Turn-by-Turn Navigation7 - standard for the first six months. Hands-free calling is available with Bluetooth® wireless technology8 for select phones. An available USB9 port for your iPod®10 and XM Radio11 for three trial months give you plenty of entertainment options. Best of all, treat your senses to the available nine-speaker Pioneer®12 sound system. There's just some things that no driver should live without, even in a car this size.
