After its total redesign for 2017, the Chevrolet Cruze carried into the 2018 model year without any changes. With this new look still very new, we expect no huge changes when the 2019 Cruze strikes showrooms.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Design
As a carryover, we expect the car’s look to be virtually similar to the current model, which features slightly sharper styling compared to the rather boring previous generation. Though we anticipate no huge design changes, there might be a few little updates to the available colors, which prevails during model year changeovers.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Interior
The Cruze’s interior likewise went through a complete renovate in 2017, generating a more high end feel and look, more convenience, and additional technology. Like the exterior, we anticipate this all to rollover in 2019, but there might be some little 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 absolutely nothing new. If this proves precise, look for the 2019 Cruze to come with a standard turbocharged 1.4-liter engine that produces 153 horse power and 177 pound-feet of torque. Buyers searching for enhanced 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 manual transmission. The optional automated transmissions differ, as the fuel model uses a six-speed automobile, while the diesel has a nine-speed unit.
The new-generation Cruze has yet to go through complete IIHS safety testing, however it has actually completed two crash tests– moderate overlap front and side– and it received “Good” scores in both. Unfortunately, because the Cruze lacks automated emergency situation braking, it gets just a “Basic” ranking in the front-crash avoidance test, which keeps it from the discussion for Top Safety Pick classification. This should all remain the same in 2019.
2019 Chevrolet Cruze Pricing & Release Date
Though there is no official release date for the 2019 Cruze, we anticipate to see it in display rooms in the summer of 2018. Given there are no changes on the docket, we also anticipate prices to stay much like the 2018 Cruze’s MSRP series of $19,400 to $26,795 (destination costs consisted of).
