As GM Authority reported last week, General Motors has just officially revealed the new 2022 Chevy Cruze RS and Cruze Midnight Edition in South America. The automaker simultaneously introduced both versions of Chevrolet‘s compact car in Brazil as well as Argentina, where the vehicle is built exclusively for countries in the region.
The new 2022 Chevy Cruze RS and Cruze Midnight Edition expand the model’s offerings, as two new design-focused variants designed specifically for South American countries. Notably, this is the first time GM has introduced distinctive RS and Midnight versions as standalone trim levels on the second-generation Chevy Cruze.
“Today, the Chevy Cruze continues to expand and seek more customers with global and exciting versions such as RS and Midnight,” said Marketing Director at GM South America, Rodrigo Fioco, in a statement. “This is a highly accepted vehicle in the market, offering a very competitive list of comprehensive equipment, and today we underpin its design and comfort as distinctive pillars for the new proposals that we present today,” he added.
Delivering on its official promise to expand Chevrolet’s RS lineup in the region, the all-new 2022 Chevy Cruze RS accentuates the vehicle’s sporty character with bold design elements that refresh its image in the seventh model year. Exclusive to the hatchback variant, the RS version of the Cruze introduces a two-tone body color scheme with black roof and mirrors, as well as a more aggressive darkened chrome grille and specific trim that enhances aerodynamic performance.
Meanwhile, the all-new 2022 Chevy Cruze Midnight Edition is an exclusive version of the sedan that gives a modern touch to the nameplate with an overall blacked-out finish that is sophisticated and highly distinctive in its segment. The Cruze Midnight debuts a new concept in the acclaimed special-edition Chevrolet trim, as in addition to the traditional black color, it includes two additional metallic paint color options: Eclipse Blue and Satin Steel Grey.
The new 2022 Chevy Cruze RS and Cruze Midnight Edition have just been launched in both Brazil and Argentina, where they’re immediately going to broaden the appeal and boost the Cruze’s acceptance in South American countries. The new versions maintain the same mechanical configuration as the rest of the versions and are manufactured at the GM Alvear plant in Argentina to supply a dozen markets in the region.
