2016 Chevy Cruze to be Lighter, Get 7-Speed DCT

Sep 24, 2014 - 10:45 PM - by

The folks at General Motors are hard at work on the next-generation Chevrolet Cruze. To keep up with its ever-evolving competition the new 2016 model is expected to lose a significant amount of weight while gaining a fuel-saving seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The Cruzes mass reduction is likely to be significant, though there are no specific figures to share at this time. Todays base model with a manual transmission weighs a little less than 3,100 lbs, but the diesel-powered variant is a real tub, smashing the scales at nearly 3,500 pounds. Cutting the fat will help boost efficiency and improve driving dynamics.

And further slashing consumption is a miser-maximizing seven-speed gearbox. GM developed this dual-clutch unit with its Chinese joint-venture partner SAIC.

Jun 30, 2014 - 10:56 AM - by

So much for more recalls from GM being just a possibility. The American automaker has announced four more recalls that affects 428,211 vehicles in the U.S.

The first recall almost comes as no surprise considering the recent stop-sale order on the Chevrolet Cruze. A total of 29,019 Chevrolet Cruze sedans from the 2013-2014 model year are being recalled to replace the drivers side air bag inflator. An additional 4,066 units are affected in Canada according to GM. The American automaker is aware of one injury related to the airbag issue.

The next recall affects 392,459 full-size pickup trucks and SUVs in the U.S. and 53,607 in Canada. An additional 20,874 units are affected in other markets worldwide and include the 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban and the 2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. According to the American automaker, the affected vehicles have a transfer case that may electronically switch to neutral without input from the driver.
