Chevrolet Cruze Turbo




There is already a turbo engine available on the Cruze, the small 1.4 Liter.
But this sportier “Turbo” model uses a larger 1.6 Liter with 170 hp instead of 140.

And so far, it is for China only. Where the 1.6 Liter Turbo is already used in the Buick Excelle.

I say bring over the good looking Cruze hatchback and squeeze the 220hp 2.0 Liter Turbo into it.
That would be a real “Turbo Cruze”.

  1. Oh look, it's the Cruze SS that we won't get for another 3 years….after the rest of the world sees the refresh while NA gets the leftovers.

  2. Anyone else notice the small black plastic panel in front of the C pillar that we have all crucified the Chrysler Sebring for having?

  3. Yeah, I agree, they can keep that cheesey black and blue dash. In general though, I do like this car a lot. My only beefs with it is that aweful c pillar and that there's no direct injection. If there was direct injection they could probably make a smaller displacement engine and probably kick out the same power with even better fuel efficiency. AND BRING A HATCHBACK TO THE USA!!!

  4. Why 220 hp in a "Turbo Cruze/Cruze SS" when the Cobalt SS had 260 hp??

    I don't want anything below that!!

    BTW, the 170 hp Turbo 1.6L would make a nice Aveo SS…

  5. I gotta admit. The Cruze is a darn nice car. And this dash–even in blue– looks a heck of a lot better than the competition from Accord or Camry

  6. The black c pillar doesn't bother me — at least it's somewhat origional — but that blacked-out B pillar has been done so many times on so many cars — ENOUGH WITH THE FAKEY BLACKED-OUT B PILLAR ALREADY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. The outside is nice. better than most in this segment, but not quite #1.

    But the ice-blue dash with matte black surround and frosty stainless trim looks like something out of an Acura Flagship. An unbelieveable amount of style for a sub-$25k midsize.
