2011 Chevy Cruze Official Photos

2011-chevy-cruze Enough spy shots, GM says.  So they released these brand spanking new official photos of the 2011 Cruze.  Remember, this is the car that’s supposed to save GM.  Well, the Cruze and the Volt, of course.

According to GM’s latest outlandish claims, the Cruze is supposedly to somehow achieve 45 MPG.  Considering that it’s supposed to be the largest car in the compact class, and no other conventionally powered compacts acheive close to 45 MPG, color me skeptical.  Plus the Cruze doesn’t look excessively aerodynamic… Unless the whole deal is made of carbon fiber, and powered by a 1.0 liter diesel engine, I just don’t see it.

To me the Cruze is overrated for now.  GM is pushing all kinds of hype… made up MPG numbers, and how it’s supposed to save the company.  Yep, it’s better looking than the Cobalt.  The interior looks excellent. Congrats.  It still doesn’t look as good as the 2008 Civic.  By the time the Cruze makes it to market, there will be a new Civic, among others.  I guess we’ll have to wait and see how the Cruze drives, before making any final judgement.
