With the announcement of GM’s Lordstown, Ohio investment yesterday came reports that the next generation, 2015 Chevrolet Cruze will introduce the world to an all-new, super flexible compact platform designed to underpin several future cars and crossover vehicles besides the Cruze.
The platform program, reportedly called “D2XX”, would go along with the company’s plans decrease the number of platforms it utilizes, while making future ones versatile enough to pick up the slack. Chances are it will not only replace the Delta II platform, but perhaps the Theta crossover platform (Chevrolet Equinox) as well.
If true, we will be praying to the car gods every night that GM will finally, finally introduce a compact with all-wheel-drive. Not just for the snow belt and northern pacific states, but to attract more Millennial enthusiasts in the same way the Subaru WRX/STI and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution have done for years now.
