I was reading that GM is offering a M/T on the 1LT and 2LT for the 2012 models.

Its gear ratios are shorter than anything offered yet, and its a 6 speed. Definitely with make that the fastest 0-60 and 1/4 mile Cruse. Which gives me hope, because if I decide I don't want an eco it could be a viable upgrade and would make this car easier to mod.

Yeah I knew about this... still bought the ECO cause I wanted the fuel economy. The others won't be as good on gas still due to added weight and shorter gears. Just a bit more sporty for people whom are looking for that.

Oh title threw me.... I thought it was odd that they would be offering a Mickey Thompson (M/T) Tire on the Cruze....thought I would check it out.

I didn't know, but I had decided to buy this back in December for the fuel economy as well. However, in 3 years I am upgrading and keeping this for the kid to drive, and I decided that I would make him do some work on it to sport it up.

The low drag and lower weight made me think it wouldn't be a bad car to mod a bit at a time.

If they offer the Sonic with this transmission that would be awesome.
