After its total redesign for 2017, the Chevrolet Cruze brought into the 2018 model year without any changes. With this makeover still brand-new, we anticipate no huge changes when the 2019 Cruze strikes showrooms.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Design
As a carryover, we expect the car’s look to be practically identical to the present model, which features a little sharper styling compared to the somewhat bland previous generation. Though we anticipate no big design changes, there might be a few small updates to the readily available colors, which is common during model year changeovers.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Interior
The Cruze’s interior likewise went through a complete redo in 2017, bringing in a more high end look, more comfort, and extra technology. Like the exterior, we expect this all to rollover in 2019, however there could be some small tweaks to its colors and materials, and some shifting around of requirement 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. Purchasers looking 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 standard with a six-speed handbook transmission. The optional automated transmissions vary, as the fuel model uses a six-speed car, while the diesel has a nine-speed unit.
The new-generation Cruze has yet to go through total IIHS safety screening, however it has finished 2 crash tests– moderate overlap front and side– and it got “Good” rankings in both. Unfortunately, since the Cruze lacks automated emergency situation braking, it receives only a “Basic” rating in the front-crash avoidance test, which keeps it out of the discussion for Top Safety Pick classification. This must all remain the 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 display rooms in the summertime of 2018. Provided there are no changes on the docket, we also anticipate rates to stay similar to the 2018 Cruze’s MSRP series of $19,400 to $26,795 (destination fees consisted of).
