Chevrolet going to display the 2015 Cruze at the New York International Auto Show with refreshed exterior, interior and great features including new Text Message Alerts, Apple Siri integration and OnStar 4G LTE with available Wi-Fi hotspot. New voice-controlled features enhance safety when responding to text messages in the vehicle.
The new Cruze2015 will be available with LS, LT, RS and LTZ variant list. A prominent dual-port front fascia takes styling cues from Impala and Malibu, contributing a more cohesive look across Chevrolet’s sedan range – including LED daytime running lamps on LT and LTZ trims. They complement the Cruze’s swept-back headlamps, for a sportier presence. Several new exterior and interior colors will also be offered for 2015.
Updates on the interior enhance convenience:
- Revised cup holders make it easier to insert and remove cups
- Trunk release relocated to the center console
- Door lock switches relocated from the center console to the front doors.
In addition to LS, LT, RS and LTZ models, the 2015 Cruze lineup includes Cruze Eco (EPA-rated 42 mpg highway) and Cruze Diesel (EPA 46 mpg highway), the most efficient non-hybrid passenger car in America. That’s about 10 percent greater efficiency than the Volkswagen Jetta TDI. The Cruze also delivers more horsepower (151 hp) and torque (264 lb-ft), than the Jetta TDI (140 hp / 236 lb-ft). Cruze Diesel’s driving range is up to 717 miles per tank.
Additional standard and available features include:
- Seven-inch-diagonal color touch screen and additional USB ports
- Chevrolet connected by OnStar 4G LTE with built-in Wi-Fi hotspot
- Next-generation OnStar and MyLink enhancements with natural language voice recognition
- Available Chevrolet AppShop (later availability)
- Available navigation.
OnStar 4G LTE with available Wi-Fi hotspot provides a mobile hub for drivers and passengers with easy access to apps and services that require a high-speed data connection. 4G LTE is the most current and fastest mobile data network – 10 times faster than 3G. And with OnStar, it offers stronger, broader coverage than smartphones on the same network and it’s easy to use: If the vehicle is on, the connection is on, allowing passengers to connect personal devices such as smartphones, laptops and tablets, to high-speed wireless Internet. Each vehicle can accommodate seven devices at one time.
The Chevrolet AppShop allows owners to view all available apps and download them directly to the vehicle, then organize, update or delete them as needed. Available apps connect drivers to vehicle data, music, news, weather, travel information and more.
