After its total redesign for 2017, the Chevrolet Cruze brought into the 2018 model year without any changes. With this new look still brand-new, we anticipate no huge changes when the 2019 Cruze strikes display rooms.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Design
As a carryover, we expect the car’s appearance to be essentially similar to the existing model, which features somewhat sharper styling compared with the somewhat bland previous generation. Though we expect no huge design changes, there might be a few small updates to the available colors, which prevails throughout model year changeovers.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Interior
The Cruze’s interior likewise went through a complete renovate in 2017, bringing in a more high end feel and look, more comfort, and additional technology. Like the exterior, we expect this to carry over in 2019, but there could be some small tweaks to its colors and materials, and some moving around of standard and optional features.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Engine
In the powertrain department, we anticipate absolutely nothing brand-new. If this shows accurate, try to find the 2019 Cruze to come with a basic turbocharged 1.4-liter engine that produces 153 horse power and 177 pound-feet of torque.
Purchasers looking for boosted 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 standard with a six-speed handbook transmission. The optional automatic transmissions vary, as the gasoline model uses a six-speed vehicle, while the diesel has a nine-speed system.
The new-generation Cruze has yet to go through total IIHS safety testing, but it has finished two crash tests– moderate overlap front and side– and it got “Good” scores in both. Unfortunately, because the Cruze lacks automatic emergency braking, it gets only a “Basic” ranking in the front-crash avoidance test, which keeps it from the conversation for Top Safety Pick classification. This must all stay 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 display rooms in the summer season of 2018. Provided there are no changes on the docket, we likewise anticipate prices to remain much like the 2018 Cruze’s MSRP series of $19,400 to $26,795 (location charges included).
