After its complete redesign for 2017, the Chevrolet Cruze carried into the 2018 model year with no changes. With this make over still brand-new, we expect no big changes when the 2019 Cruze hits display rooms.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Design
As a carryover, we anticipate the car’s appearance to be essentially similar to the present model, which features somewhat sharper styling compared with the somewhat boring previous generation. Though we anticipate no huge style changes, there might be a couple of little updates to the offered colors, which is common during model year changeovers.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Interior
The Cruze’s interior also underwent a complete redo in 2017, bringing in a more high end feel and look, more comfort, and additional technology. Like the exterior, we anticipate this all to rollover in 2019, however there could be some small tweaks to its colors and materials, and some moving around of requirement and optional features.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Engine
In the powertrain department, we expect nothing new. If this shows accurate, try to find the 2019 Cruze to come with a standard turbocharged 1.4-liter engine that produces 153 horse power and 177 pound-feet of torque. Purchasers looking for improved fuel economy will still have the optional 1.6-liter diesel motor that produces 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come basic with a six-speed handbook transmission. The optional automatic transmissions differ, as the gasoline model utilizes a six-speed automobile, while the diesel has a nine-speed system.
The new-generation Cruze has yet to go through total IIHS security testing, but it has actually finished two crash tests– moderate overlap front and side– and it got “Good” scores in both. Sadly, since the Cruze lacks automated emergency braking, it receives only a “Basic” score in the front-crash avoidance test, which keeps it from the discussion for Top Safety Pick designation. This need to all remain the same in 2019.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Pricing & Release Date
Though there is no main release date for the 2019 Cruze, we expect to see it in showrooms in the summertime of 2018. Given there are no changes on the docket, we also expect rates to stay much like the 2018 Cruze’s MSRP range of $19,400 to $26,795 (location charges consisted of).
