After its complete redesign for 2017, the Chevrolet Cruze brought into the 2018 model year without any changes. With this makeover still very new, we anticipate no big changes when the 2019 Cruze strikes display rooms.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Design
As a carryover, we expect the car’s look to be practically similar to the existing model, which features slightly sharper styling compared with the rather dull previous generation. Though we anticipate no huge style changes, there may be a few little updates to the readily available colors, which is common throughout model year changeovers.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Interior
The Cruze’s interior also underwent a total redo in 2017, bringing in a more high end look and feel, more comfort, and additional technology. Like the exterior, we anticipate this all to rollover 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 expect absolutely nothing new. If this proves accurate, search for the 2019 Cruze to come with a standard turbocharged 1.4-liter engine that produces 153 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. Buyers searching for boosted fuel economy will still have the optional 1.6-liter diesel engine that produces 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come basic with a six-speed handbook transmission. The optional automatic transmissions vary, as the fuel model utilizes a six-speed car, while the diesel has a nine-speed unit.
The new-generation Cruze has yet to go through total IIHS security screening, but it has actually finished 2 crash tests– moderate overlap front and side– and it received “Good” ratings in both. Regrettably, because the Cruze lacks automatic emergency situation braking, it gets only a “Basic” rating in the front-crash avoidance test, which keeps it out of the conversation for Top Safety Pick classification. This need to all stay the very same in 2019.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Pricing & Release Date
Though there is no main release date for the 2019 Cruze, we anticipate to see it in showrooms in the summertime of 2018. Given there are no changes on the docket, we likewise anticipate rates to stay much like the 2018 Cruze’s MSRP variety of $19,400 to $26,795 (location charges consisted of).
