Chevrolet Cruze 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Chevrolet Cruze 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Cruze zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Cruze 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Chevrolet Cruze engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

Introduction


In a world full of competitive sedan models that are aiming to offer specifications that are better than the present competitors exists the 2019 Chevrolet Cruze diesel sedan. The Cruze, a popular sedan that is being provided by Chevrolet is faced by a lot of competition from companies that offer sedans with similar or better specifications. Chevrolet, therefore, does its best to improve on the current specs to stay relevant in the market. The Cruze hatchback was introduced last year by Chevrolet to offer more cargo-carrying capacity than the sedan and also a new diesel-powered engine that can cover 50 mpg on the highway. This year Chevrolet is offering a Cruze hatchback diesel for the first time as a combined model with both specifications.

 

0-60 and Engine specs


Though the two engines and two automatic transmissions are similar to the older Sedan version, the six-speed manual has been changed. The take rate has been cited to be of just a couple percent by GM. The turbocharged 1.4-liter inline-four with 153 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque pairs with six-speed automatic, Chevrolet estimates its fuel economy as up to 40 mpg highway for the sedan and 38 mpg for the hatchback.  The Cruze diesel sedan is expected to offer even better fuel economy with its 137-hp 1.6-liter turbo-diesel with its sturdy 240 lb-ft. The expectations are impressive except the 2018 Cruze diesel sedan with the manual posted a 52-mpg highway rating.

 

Exterior & Interior


The most obvious improvement to the 2019 Cruze is the fact that the front styling is more or less parallel to the revised 2019 Malibu. Other changes on the 2019 Cruze diesel sedan do not stand out as much as the already stated compact’s successful visual formula which has constantly been presented since this generation debuted in 2016. The headlights, taillights with LED on the top Premier trim and wheel designs that will be tougher to spot as compared to previous models. The Redline Package lends some of its specifications to the Cruze diesel sedan such as the black window surrounds, badges and alloy wheels.

The interior consists of the new Infotainment 3 system which is a reskinned version of Cadillac’s latest version of the CUE. The Infotainment system is managed by a 7.0-inch touchscreen that responds to swiping gestures. Higher trims with navigation allow for user profiles to be stored and loaded to the cloud to allow transfer of a driver’s home screen, audio presets, saved destinations and contacts to any other compatible Chevy. Also included are wireless software updates and live traffic. The interior regarding seats is carried over from previous models except for a new brown leatherette on the Premier and black trim on all models.

 

Verdict


The 2019 Chevrolet Cruze is expected to benefit from a mid-cycle refresh. The Cruze lineup has been expanding since the compact car debuted initially in the year 2016. The list now includes not just the initial sedan but also a four-door hatchback and a vehicle with higher mileage diesel option in both the available body styles.
