The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze has been under the scalpel for a while and is not only getting a makeover but is getting a lot of structural things improved upon and you can find it right now at Wallace Chevrolet in Stuart, FL. Lucky you! This small car is a good thing for Chevrolet fans who have always known and loved Chevy for its solid designs and rugged and durable cars that are perfect for drivers in Port St. Lucie, Palm City, White City, and Jupiter, FL. The Cruze fits that mold perfectly. It will have a longer wheelbase than last year's model and it will be smoother from an aerodynamic point of view thanks to some nice sculpting and trimming of the exterior by the engineers at Chevy. With a longer wheel base comes more rear set space, which will make new Chevy buyers even more pleased with their choice and former Chevy buyers happily confident in their wise choice to go with one of the best car makers in the world – again. The Cruze will be among the first cars based on GM's global compact car platform, which will keep it a compact car but it will have the roomy feeling of a mid-size or bigger.
Powertrain and PerformanceThe new 2016 Chevy Cruze will have a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 153-horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. And guess what, you get more power, more speed, and more torque than the previous Cruze engine – but you get less weight. The new engine weighs 44 pounds less than the old one did. How do they do that? Amazing! Well, the answer is pretty simple: they used a new block that weighed less and a different and lighter head. You will also get to choose between two transmissions: a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. Guess what again…that's right, the automatic transmission is 24 pounds lighter than last year's and with all this weight loss the Cruz has more confidence and it feels as though it can do anything. And it truly can. It's faster and more manageable and it's an all-around winner when it comes to looks and performance. See what losing a few pounds can do for you. It's also estimated to get 40 mpg on the highway. Okay, you want more? Well, there is a start/stop feature, which forces the car to ingest less fuel and on an only when needs to basis. Some people call it fuel sipping, other people call it a miracle because it saves so much fuel.
Exterior & Interior FeaturesIs styling everything? Is form more important than function? Hey, who cares…Chevrolet always builds cars with style in mind and form usually follows function, which means that the engineers think of beauty and style as they are designing substantial cars that are highly functional. Hopefully that makes some sense. When you look at the new 2016 Cruze by Chevrolet, you will see just what that previous sentence means. The car is stylish but the style is wrapped around something that is entirely functional and necessary for the car's operation and safety. The front seats and console for example are fitted to the driver's needs and comfort but are also sculpted to hold the driver in safely and enable her or him to operate controls on the dashboard in a responsible manner. And it looks very cool. The chassis is lighter for speed, but at the same time it is more sturdy and rigid, so nothing was lost in the performance but only gained. The car is also longer so there is more legroom inside, which allows for comfort and easier driving. This car is a smart car. It's smartly designed and graceful. You can even get in some models rear seat heaters, which no one else that we know of offers in similar size cars. The use of higher quality materials in the interior is readily noticeable and the overall design is simply well thought out and extremely comfortable.
The exterior has narrowed headlights with a new two-part grille that seems to separate it from the herd and move it into the future. The aerodynamic sloping of the front end leans the car into the wind and seems to enable it to be able to go through any obstacle at light-speed. The overall glassy smoothness and curves of the exterior all tend to heighten the Cruze's appearance of what cars in the future should look like. Here are a few more of the things you will get with your Cruze rear cross traffic alerts, in-car 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay, a split folding rear seat, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, USB, OnStar, an AM/FM radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth for hands free calling and audio streaming, remote trunk control, six speakers, and GPS navigation.
