Cobalt SS's with the G85 package (from '05-'07, this also got you Recaro seats) have an LSD.

Was an option on the Cobalt SS. The Malibu SS was a dumb excuse for a SS car, they stuck an Impala 3.9 in it and called it good.

The Impala SS with the FWD V8 SHOULD have had one, as it did nothing but spin the sh!t out of the front tires when you got on the throttle.

How do you figure that a lsd diesel will be in the awd midsize market? not one of those cars gets 46 mpg so the cruze still stands out so for the $ you get a lot and better mpg. the cruze sells a lot of sport cruzes or known as the RS pack, 80% of the gasers are RS that have " Sport suspension" and sporty looks down here in Florida.

i could have afforded the cars you mentioned but i like the cruzes dimensions and not many offer its size thats just right with a diesel
From a price standpoint, you're well into either of those arenas. MPG isn't a huge selling point right now as it was a few years ago since gas prices are low, but MPG on most cars is getting a lot better.

defiantly agreed, the malibu was a poor excuse. Cobalt was nice besides the ricer wing and the trail blazer ss was very very nice. Reminds me of the ol jeep grand cherokee 5.9. Fastest suv production for a long time

Cobalt SS could be had with the low-profile spoiler that I have from 2008 and on.

TBSSs are quite fantastic.

actually the dana 44a if it was fixed at the dealer has long service life and is really strong axles when trussed. the vc can still be good at 250k miles if people weekly aired up tires and did 5 tire rotation. zj owners complain about the VC but honestly most of them have 225k miles and it just now failed... with all their abuse they lasted that long is great.

now yes the zj would have been better of with a np231 or a nv 242 but ohh well. i swapped my 249 for a 232 and am way happier. sucks getting parts for the 44a but if it blows just swap in a dana 35 or a ford 8.8 lsd

Actually, the fastest production for 8 years was the ML55 AMG and then later the Srt8 in 08 and / or the ML63 in 08 and beyond. While quick , the JGC couldn't hold a candle to the MLs. The MLs had ESP which was defeatable entirely, not like the one on the cars which is still not entirely off when deactivated.

before the MB the jeep zj 5.9 was the record holder.
