Top Quality Used Chevy Cruze Models Available in Cleveland, TN
One of the most recognizable compact four-door sedans over the past decade, the Chevrolet Cruze has been a crowd-pleaser from day one. Designed to toe the line between advanced features and an affordable price tag, the Cruze is an undeniable staple of life on the road throughout the entire U.S.
Brief History of the Chevrolet Cruze
Initially introduced at the 2009 Paris Motor Show as an affordable but still tech savvy sedan capable of enticing buyers during the world financial crisis,
the Cruze has been enjoyed by drivers of all
walks of life.
Since its initial release, the Cruze has gone through a couple of upgrades but was ultimately discontinued in its third generation after the 2019 model year and replaced by the Chevy Sonic and Malibu.
First Generation: 2009 - 2016
Adorned with Chevy’s golden bowtie, the Cruze hit the road in 2009 as an immediately recognizable force in the four-door compact sedan segment. In its first generation, the Cruze defined itself as a versatile option at an affordable price with a number of different trims to choose from: L, LS, 1LT, Eco, 2LT, LTZ, and Diesel.
One of the most unique features about this model is that the infotainment system was installed at a slight angle, eliminating the traditional picture framing of the panels. This feature set the tone for what is an undeniably modern interior for the time. The first and second generation Cruze was powered by a 1.4-liter Ecotec engine.
Second Generation: 2016 - 2018
The second generation Cruze benefitted from a number of exterior stylistic upgrades. Now featuring sharper exterior angles, the second generation Cruze is also noticeably more agile than its predecessor. Now reduced to four trim options, (L, LS, LT, and Premier) this Cruze provides drivers with higher quality interior materials at all trim levels than the first generation models.
Notable technological advances include: backup camera, seven-inch touchscreen, and added luxuries like heated side mirrors and steering wheel. Entertainment-minded drivers also had the option to upgrade their tech with the RS Package, which included an eight-inch touchscreen and a Bose nine-speaker audio system.
Third Generation: 2018 - 2019
Now available in Hatchback and Hatchback Diesel options, the third generation Cruze benefited tremendously from the ever-evolving world of in-cabin technology. Now with seamless smartphone integrations as standard at each trim level, the 2018 Cruze connects drivers to the road and the world around them more efficiently than any
of its predecessors.
After receiving a mid-cycle refresh for 2019, the Cruze’s final iteration arrived at dealerships throughout the U.S. with restyled headlights and taillights as well as new color and wheel designs. Chevy also fazed out the manual transmission options for 2019, instead offering only automatic options.
What’s New For the Cruze?
The Chevrolet Cruze was discontinued after 2019. Chevy has filled the void left by the Cruze with the Sonic and the Malibu, each of which are efficient, stylish, and tech-saturated options that modern sedan lovers will easily fall in love with.
