Breaking: Chevrolet Cruze Coupe in the works

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

A live webchat with GM North America President Mark Reuss has been incredibly informative. He talked about the company's plans and products and gave hints here and there of what are to expected from GM in the future.

Reuss declined to provide details about the rumors that in the next few years, GM would release a 2-door Cruze that could be marketed as a coupe.

Reuss said that this version is needed, especially for a model like the Cruze. Reuss said that its 2 door Cruzemay be nice but it could definitely appear in the global market, according to autoevolution. Reuss added that there are currently 2 door Cobalts and that the Cruze 2 door is appealing to many people.

Reuss said that a 2-door is still necessary since its small-car portfolio will soon be beyond what it currently is.

GM is anticipated to quickly provide the products that the market has demands for. The qualities that most consumers are looking for are a great duty cycle for work, play, as well as commuting efficiently and safety with much fun and style.

Last February, Reuss had announced the third shift at the Lordstown facility, which currently builds the Cruze.

He clarified that this model has a key role in its global strategy. There aren't many details available currently though. In a statement, it was revealed that the all-new Cruze is meant to pave the way for Chevrolet in small-displacement, turbocharged Ecotec engines that are highly fuel efficient and fun to drive.

Drivers can now have the hybrid performance without the high cost. In fact, a high-efficiency variant of the Cruze is expected to deliver segment-leading fuel economy of up to 40 miles-per-gallon on the highway."
