In addition to finding news of the 2019 ATS Cadillac, The Truth About Cars may have discovered that the 2019 Chevy Cruze will not be offered with a manual transmission.
General Motors will launch the new generation Cruze on a brand new D2XX platform. The new platform is expert in substantially reducing the total weight of the vehicle and adds extra stability to the car, which mesmerizes customers by its final performance. The outer dimensions of the more powerful Cruze are 4666 mm long, 1795 mm wide and 1458 mm high, with 2700 mm wheelbase and 140 mm ground clearance. The lamp tails and mirrors are elegantly designed with superb double headlights for a seductive look. The bumper is powerful and allows huge air intakes.
The leather-based interior, the admirable finishing materials and the superhuman blend give it a more upscale look. The cabin is extremely spacious, accommodating excessive leg room and relaxing seating. The new Cruze has a 917 mm rear legroom, the best in its class. It is designed efficiently in the best interest of ergonomics and convenience. Cruze’s new generation offers temperature control, a USB port, wireless charging for smartphones, a touch screen up to 7 inches, navigation, electric handbrake, heated seats and an impressive camera. decline. The steering rack is well mounted with heated electric power steering.
At least that’s how it is. There has been no official word from General Motors on this, but in addition to not finding a manual option, the VIN decoder seems to indicate that the Cruze will get a new automatic CVT. That makes a certain sense – if the current car offers a cheaper manual with an automatic option, the new car could feature an automatic base (in this case, a six-speed) with the gearless CVT being the top-spec choice.
An automatic gearbox with torque converter will be operational in 2019 and will be offered on some models. The diesel-powered Cruze with Opel’s 1.6-liter CDTi will continue to count on the nine-speed Hydra-Matic 9T50 that debuted in the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu Premier.
What’s new in the powertrain department is the 1.4-liter CNG turbocharged engine and the 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that serves as an entry-level option in the Malibu. With 160 horsepower and 184 pounds at the tap, it’s more than enough for a compact car like the Cruze.
