Some modifications had to be made to the car to hit that MPG goal. A lower front grille air shutter that closes at higher speeds was used. It improves aerodynamics and opens at lower speeds to optimize engine cooling airflow. The upper grille has more closeouts to also improve aerodynamics. There is a lower front air dam extension along with extensive use of underbody panels and a rear spoiler. These all enhance the car's aerodynamics. The ride height of the Cruze was lowered to also improve the car's aerodynamics to help reach a higher mileage per gallon. The car also features 17 inch lightweight aluminum wheels to lessen the car's overall weight. It also has ultra low rolling resistance Goodyear tires.
Chevrolet Cruze-Chevrolet Cruze
The 2010 Chevrolet Cruze will be any moment in the North American markets. It belongs to the class of medium size luxury cars, and will turn out to be a "world car" soon enough. It is already available for purchase in Asia and Europe. This compact car will be a significant improvement from the General Motors, which will be able to reach the segment of small car buyers.
