The brand all about the 'merican revolution is reporting they'll be revealing an all new car at the Paris Motor Show later this year called the Chevy Cruze. We don't know much other than the 15-foot-long Cruze will seat five, be available in Europe by Spring of next year and have the same global design language as the rest of the bowtied brand. As the Cruze will be just under the size of the Cobalt, we can't help but think this is the car we'd been hearing would be coming to the Lordstown, Ohio plant either as a replacement to, or in addition to, the Chevy Cobalt. We'll have more live from Paris and in the months to come as it shoots out onto the web. For the moment, hit the jump for the press release — and thankfully no more missile references.
Chevrolet Cruze: A new name and a new design for an all-new car
Detroit - Chevrolet announced today that its all-new entry in the compact segment will be called Cruze. The new Chevrolet will make its global debut at the Paris Motor Show in early October.
Cruze was developed by a global design and engineering team and will be built in multiple locations around the world. The Cruze approaches an overall length of 4.6 meters and offers ample interior space and cargo capacity for five passengers, giving it an advantage over competition in the compact segment.
The Cruze features Chevrolet's new global design language that will continue to be a signature element for future vehicles carrying the gold bowtie. Combined with high safety standards and excellent build quality, Chevrolet will again deliver on its promise of offering a very attractive package at an exceptional value.
The new Chevrolet Cruze will be available in European markets in Spring 2009, followed by other global regions.
