2011 Chevrolet Cruze: No. 2 GM Vehicle and Compact Car in U.S. for April

May 03, 2011


Would it surprise you to know that the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze is the second biggest selling vehicle for General Motors? Yup, right behind the Silverado. In fact it's with the Cruze's help that GM led the Detroit automakers in sales in April. Analysts are attributing it to Americans preferring smaller, fuel-efficient cars because gas prices are so high. The compact Cruze gets 24 city/36 highway/28 combined, our average is 25.2 mpg.

And even though the Cruze was just introduced last year it is already selling triple the amount that the Cobalt did. Other recent accolades include its being dubbed by Wards as having one of 10 best interiors. It also is now the No. 2 compact car in the country, moving up from a No. 4 spot in March. Does that make you feel better about the Cruze or can 25,160 Cruze fans (number of folks who bought the car in April) be wrong?
