As of right about now, the Chevrolet Cruze has been arriving onto dealer lots in the U.S. for nearly a full month. Counting its introduction in America, the Cruze is now on sale in 77 countries worldwide. But does this mean that The General can now take a brief rest? Not at all.
General Motors has just launched the Chevrolet Cruze in Argentina, where it will come in two flavors: LT and LTZ. Two engines will also be available: the familiar 1.8-liter petrol 4-cylinder producing 141 hp and 176Nm (129 lbs.-ft.) of torque as well as a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel producing 150 horses and torque of 320Nm (236 lbs.-ft). Transmission choices include a five speed manual for both engines and a six speed automatic for the petrol engine.
Sergio Rocha, GM Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay CEO and Director, says the Cruze has been successful in the markets where it competes and he hopes the trend will continue in Argentina: “We are seeking to reach that same success in the Argentine market, and we have no doubt that we will do it thanks to the Cruze’s perfect combination of elegance, design, innovation, and the level of security offered by this car,” Rocha said.
Hopefully GM has finished introducing the Cruze (Cruzen?) to everyone in the world and can now take a brief. Wait… this just in from GM: the company is now planning to introduce the Cruze in Antarctica.
