Chevrolet Cruze to get Z-series Engine Next Year


We have been talking about the Chevrolet Cruze getting a new engine since quite some time now. Now, the news is that the sedan will get a motor from the American car manufacturer’s Z Series engines. The car will get a DOHC 2.0 litres, 163 bhp common-rail oil burner. The new motor should debut with the cosmetic changes in the front fascia. The interiors too are expected to get a minor tweaking. The interiors are expected to get a two-tone color treatment with LED illumination. It is being said that GM India will take customer feedback in account and re-design the rear seats to free up more space for head room. The upgraded Cruze should come by 2012 end or early 2013. Currently the car is powered by a 150-bhp engine and a new and more powerful engine means even quicker acceleration. It is expected that the upgraded car will do an 8.5 second run to 100 kmph.

Dear Yatharth,
I'm afraid in haste, Motoroids articles are slowly coming up with wrong info! Current CRUZE develops 166bhp, not 150bhp!Please correct it.
