Cruze sales fall as larger car sales rise



Published: Fri, August 1, 2014 @ 10:55 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN

The Lordstown-built Chevrolet Cruze sales were down in July as the market leaned toward the purchase of larger vehicles, auto analysts say.

Glenn Johnson, head of United Auto Workers Local 1714, said, however, he believes the downturn is not a sign for concern because automobile sales “ebb and flow.”

Johnson felt comfortable with the number because it was still in the 20,000 range.

The Cruze still holds its own with 20,926 sold in July. The car is up 4.5 percent overall for the year, but down 17.8 for July compared with last year at this time.

“We are real excited about the launch of the 2015 Cruze. It’s a nice little face-lift,” Johnson said. “It is definitely due for a redesign, and it is coming shortly.”

Consumers are taking advantage of the confidence they feel in the economy and buying larger vehicles, analysts added.
