Spotted in the wild again was the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Cruze (not pictured), but judging by the way the front clip looks, one may mistake it for a long-wheelbase Chevy Sonic — at least with all of the camouflage on the body. Though for as much as we see the Sonic, we also see hints of Tru140S Concept, as well.
It is expected that the all-new Cruze will launch next year sometime, and will be the first example of GM’s all-new D2XX architecture; a platform that is said to be flexible enough to also underpin a crossover, and is expected to be the basic blueprint for at least twelve different models down the road.
The large windshield and sloping hood should pay huge dividends in the visibility department, and the rounded-off corners, integrated decklid spoiler, and other aerodynamic improvements should help reduce drag and increase fuel economy. But perhaps the biggest assistance in fuel economy would be an all-new nine-speed automatic transmission, which GM announced to be co-developing with Ford Motor Company. An all-new EcoTec four cylinder engine is also expected to be cradled underneath the hood of the new Chevrolet, as well.
