2016 Chevy Cruze Revealed

Jun 24, 2015 - 7:33 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Chevrolet just unveiled its totally redesigned 2016 Cruze compact car in Detroit. This C-segment offering should bring new features and efficiency to the class.

Just You Weight …

Following the all-new Malibu’s lead, this updated Cruze has gone on a major diet. The car is expected to be about 250 pounds lighter than the current version. That mass reduction is particularly impressive for a vehicle this small, and doubly so when you consider that it’s grown in size.

Overall, the 2016 Cruze is 2.7 inches longer than the outgoing model and has a wheelbase that’s been lengthened by one inch. This stretch helps improve back-seat space, which is a sore spot in the current model.

Do I Really Need Premium Gas?

May 21, 2015 - 9:48 AM - by AutoGuide.com

Cost is often the first thing that comes to mind when motorists think of gasoline. Many will drive halfway across town to save a couple cents per gallon. Additionally, purchasing regular-grade fuel to save money can be an exercise in false economy, especially if your vehicle is designed for premium gas.

Running fuel with insufficient octane can cause internal engine damage, which isn’t pretty. “The worst case scenario …. You could actually [melt] holes in the pistons and cause catastrophic damage to the [connecting] rods,” said Bill Studzinski, GM powertrain fuels group manager. Fortunately a disaster of this caliber is unlikely in today’s highly tuned, computer-controlled powerplants. Still he said, “You should follow the owner’s manual guidance.”

What’s more apt to happen when there isn’t enough octane is a phenomenon called spark knock. John Juriga, director of powertrain at the Hyundai America Technical Center described this abnormal combustion as “sort of a high-pitched pinging,” or perhaps even a rattling noise. This sound is caused by colliding flame fronts inside the
