The Chevy Cruze was introduced as more of a crossover SUV in most markets (other than the U.S.) in 2001, with a global relaunch of the vehicle in 2008, which featured a redesign from the crossover SUV into the now-current sedan model that is sold in all Chevy showrooms. The standard Cruze comes in five different models: the LS, the 1LT, 2LT and LTZ, as well as the Eco Cruze. Each vehicle has separate features, which we’ll briefly highlight in this artice.
The LS is the most basic Cruze. It comes with a 138 horsepower 1.8L DOHC Straight-4 engine with a six speed manual transmission, 10 standard airbags, Stabilitrack electronic stability control and traction control, four-wheel antilock breaks, OnStar for six months, Sirius XM Satellite Radio, black outside mirrors and 16-inch silver-painted wheel covers. The 1LT features all LS features plus the following: instead of the 1.8L engine in the LS, it comes with a more powerful 138hp 1.4L turbocharged engine, 16 inch allow wheels, a USB port, Bluetooth support, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, and available driver conveinence package. As you can see, it’s a bit more charged up than the LS. The 2LT comes with what the 1LT has as well as 17 inch alloy wheels, heated, powered adjustable seats, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, a sport-tuned suspension and available touch-screen navigation. The LTZ features a six-speed manual transmission, 18-inch five-spoke silver-painted alloy wheels, foglamps, chrome door handles, automatic climate control, an up-level instrument cluster, rear-park assist and keyless entry in addition to what the 2LT features.
The Eco Cruze features a separate six-speed manual transmission with Eco overdrive gear and a unique look, as well as a host of optional features. But the best thing about the Cruze is how easy it is to ship. As it’s a simple sedan, it’s size and weight won’t have any bearing on your price – it’ll just be the base auto transport price, no oversize fees or overweight charges. Most auto transportation companies utilize pricing tools that will accurately reflect how much a certain vehicle will cost to ship. Most auto shipping companies you’ll deal with are brokerages who don’t own their own trucks, but this is an advantage as they can get you auto transportation quicker and cheaper than a carrier with a limited fleet. They can find a carrier in your area to pick up your vehicle quickly, and this is helped by the fact that the Cruze is such a small car. It’s a compact, so it’ll be easy to ship.
