2020 Chevrolet Cruze
The Chevrolet Cruze was discontinued in 2019, and not produced in North America for the 2020 model year.
Although General Motors announced plans to discontinue the Chevrolet Cruze in North America, simultaneously ending production of the model at the GM Lordstown facility as well as at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in the beginning of 2019, that does not mean that the model will be discontinued outright. In fact, General Motors will continue to manufacture and sell the Chevy Cruze in other global markets where the model’s sales have either remained stable, fallen at a less pronounced rate, or even increased – as is the case in South America.
The Cruze received a midcycle enhancement (MCE), otherwise known as a facelift or refresh, for the 2019 model year (see more on 2019 Cruze). As such, we expect only minor changes and updates for the 2020 Cruze in global markets, including:
- Minor changes to features/equipment group structure
- One or two new exterior colors
- One or two new interior color combinations
- No expected powertrain updates or changes
The 2020 Chevy Cruze will continue to be offered in two body styles:
- Four-door sedan
- Four-door hatchback
We expect the 2020 Cruze to continue being offered with the same powertrains as the 2019 model. That said, availability does vary by market.

Like all second-generation units of the Chevrolet Cruze, the 2020 Cruze will continue to ride on the GM D2 platform shared with the following vehicles:
- Chevrolet Volt / Buick Velite
- Chevrolet Equinox
- Buick Verano
- Buick Excelle
- GMC Terrain
- Buick Envision
- Buick Cascada / Opel Cascada
- Opel Astra / Vauxhall Astra
The Cruze is assembled at the following plants for global markets:
- GM Gunsan plant in Gunsan, South Korea operated by GM Korea (shut down as part of GM Korea restructuring)
- GM Alvear plant in Rosario, Argentina operated by GM Argentina, part of GM South America, which was folded into GM International
- GM Norsom plant in China operated by GM China
The 2020 Cruze will likely follow the regular GM model year rollover sequence, and launch in the third quarter of the 2019 calendar year in the available markets.
We expect that the second-generation Cruze will live on thru at least the 2022 model year in global markets. It is unclear what the future holds for the nameplate at this time.
