With more than 3.5 million Cruzes sold in 115 countries since its introduction in 2008, Chevrolet is preparing to roll out its all-new second-generation Cruze, said to be larger yet lighter, more fuel efficient and cleaner burning than the first-gen car, while packing new engines, safety features and technologies. As a global product, the Cruze singlehandedly replaced 15 other company GM vehicles around the globe, noted Alan Batey, president of GM North America and global Chevrolet brand chief, offering compact car customers “style, safety and connectivity at an affordable price.” When the next-generation Cruze hits showrooms in early 2016, more than 95 percent of Chevrolet’s United States product lineup will be less than three years old, added Batey.

The next-generation Cruze will be larger yet lighter than the current model, with new technologies, new powertrains and additional safety features.  The 2016 Cruze will build on the current model’s success, which Chevrolet announced today has surpassed 3.5 million global sales

The next Chevy Cruze will likely be more revolutionary than evolutionary in nature: new style, new engines and new technology.
