Next-generation Chevy Cruze will be larger, yet lighter

LORDSTOWN — The newest vehicle to come out of the Lordstown General Motors assembly plant will differ from its predecessor in various ways.

The next-generation Chevrolet Cruze will be larger, yet lighter than the first Cruze, it has new technology, new powertrains, and additional safety features.

More than 1 million Cruzes have been built locally. Globally, GM’s best-selling car has surpassed 3.5 million sales.

Cruze is sold in 115 countries. The top global markets include China, the U.S., Brazil and Canada.

The next-generation Cruze will have a global unveiling June 24. The top-selling compact car has been on the market since 2010.

“When we introduced the Cruze it replaced 15 other compact vehicles around the globe,” said Alan Batey, president, General Motors North America and global Chevrolet brand chief. “By consolidating design, engineering and marketing efforts, we were able to produce an award-winning, value-driven sedan that won over customers around the world.”
