    So...what's replacing the Cruze?

    Has there been any definite insight as to what will replace the Cruze diesel? Also, is the Cruze HB still going to be sold in the states since it's made in Mexico? Inquiring minds want to know. If this has already been discussed, I am sorry, but discuss it again...lol.

    Cruze nameplate in its entirety from all sources not to be sold in USA.
    No car is set to replace it.
    Chevrolet is most likely bring in a 5th crossover as the Trailblazer.

    I figured the Malibu was replacing the Cruze and the Impala.
    Want a sedan?
    We've got one.
    It might be a little bigger or smaller than you wanted, but we've got one.

    That's my take, too, that Chevrolet is trying to move Impala and Cruze buyers to the Malibu. Or to crossovers and SUVs.

    Wow, interesting. So, if you want a car and you want a chevy, they have literally one. It's midsize which makes some sense. Unlike Ford, they have no midsize sedans at all do they? Just the smaller Focus I believe. Japan is going to kill in this market. The price of the Camry just rose by 5%.

    Looks like I'll be stuck in 2018 and older... no more Cruzes, Volts, or Manual transmissions anywhere (Dodge Ram was the last pickup to offer a stick and their canceling the manual also)

    So no diesels unless you want to buy a truck? Wow, the market to what we get to choose from is getting small.

    Everybody (according to the US automakers anyway) wants the boxy “toasters” nowadays...so one can pay $40-50K for an Equinox or a Cherokee diesel if they don’t want a diesel pickup.

    Sadly, while still popular in Europe, the high-efficiency diesel sedan has run its course in the U.S. VW, Audi, Mercedes, and now Chevrolet are out of the small car diesel market.

    We’ll see what happens in a few years when fuel prices escalate past $4-5/Gal again and the Japanese automakers corner the small car market...this is a recording..............

    The Equinox/Terrain diesel does still exist...

    ...but nobody would ever know, considering GM hasn't told anyone​.

    More than likely, yes. However, the wildcard - and a big one at that - is electrification. I do think that's going to be something that is quite livable by the time fuel goes back up to that level, so it may negate the need entirely for small cars, since you do actually have a benefit to a larger vehicle (bigger battery), as long as you keep weight in check.
