TRIFECTA: Driver Selectable Vehicle Modes, version II (DSVM II) is now available for the 2011+ Chevrolet Cruze 1.4L Turbo (LUJ--LUV)!



TRIFECTA is pleased to announce the immediate availability of an update to the TRIFECTA Advantage and TRIFECTA Elite calibration for the 2011-2015 Chevrolet Cruze and 2016+ Chevrolet Cruze Limited with the 1.4L Turbo engine. The new calibration is being designated DSVM II (Driver Selectable Vehicle Modes, Version 2) in accordance with the recent similar release for the Chevrolet Sonic with the 1.4L Turbo engine.

TRIFECTA's DSVM II, on the Chevrolet Cruze, is activated by the cruise control system arming switch. When the cruise control system is enabled, the vehicle operates in STOCK mode. When the cruise control system is disabled, the vehicle operates in SPORT mode. Vehicle modes can be switched at any time, as many times as the driver wishes. Cruise control system functionality is completely retained and unaffected by DSVM II.

In SPORT mode, the vehicle responds much more quickly to accelerator input. Automatic transmission shift patterns are optimized for maximum performance and responsiveness. During "everyday" driving manuevers, the vehicle feels very much like it did from the factory, but rolling into the pedal quickly reveals a vehicle that wants to GO. Attentive, but without being "twitchy", power delivery is linear and transmission shifts are purposeful. The vehicle produces maximum TRIFECTA power!

In STOCK mode, the vehicle behaves just like it did from the factory, under all driving conditions!

Just as was mentioned in the recent release of the Chevrolet Sonic DSVM II calibration, our calibration engineering team has been working on the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze Turbo. Just like any other large scale software project, GM typically uses a common "code base" within an ECU type, and this "code base" is generally updated every model year. After studying the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze ECU code in our engineering center, we discovered some improvements in calibration constructs that had not existed in previous model years, which we determined could be "back ported" to previous model years to offer an exceptionally improved driving experience not possible prior to the 2016 "code base".

This discovery, combined with feedback on the current DSVM calibration led to a complete "redo" of the TRIFECTA Cruze calibration. SPORT mode is all new, redesigned from the ground up.

Availability:

TRIFECTA's DSVM II for the 2011+ Chevrolet Cruze (LUJ--LUV) is available immediately and is incorporated into all new product orders. Exisiting TRIFECTA customers may request and receive the DSVM II calibration update at absolutely no charge by submitting a request at the following link (be sure to include your vehicle's VIN):

Neat. Do you think this feature may be available in the future for the Cruze Diesel tune?

I look forward to trying this update out. Are there any plans for an ECO/Sport version of DVSM II? If not, would there be any noticeable difference in mileage between the ECO mode of DVSM I and the stock mode of DVSM II?

Thanks for your time in answering my questions.

what mode does it go to when you actually set the cruise control? does it stay in sport since it is already there?

jsusanka: you got it wrong. Its Sport mode, when cruse control is in the OFF position.

When the cruise control system is enabled, the vehicle operates in STOCK mode. When the cruise control system is disabled, the vehicle operates in SPORT mode.

Anyone feel the difference yet? Noticed on their FB page the huge barrage of the Dart and Fiat owners that want a tune from Trifecta lol

It's on the development list but, with all the other dev stuff going on, I don't see a revision with DSVM happening soon. Especially since it just underwent it's own round of re-development :)

The ECO programming was deemed not entirely necessary as to need a whole second option available. Also, we had lots of customers changing their minds about ECO and Stock. It wound up being a case of offering too many options working against us ;)

However, the ECO programming code has been worked into the Stock side of things for low throttle and cruising operations. It kicks in automatically when certain parameters are met during your drive.

What happens if we had advantage + in your last iteration
Not sure I follow....this is an update to the core programming, which is free to all customers :)

Yeah, we found that interesting too! What does the aftermarket support look like for them if they are begging a company that works with GM exclusively to support their platform too? Also, we think it speaks volumes about TRIFECTA in general :)

As for the 'changes' over all peak power is still pretty much the same. It's just the delivery of the power and overall feeling that has changed a bit.

You did away with advantage plus and moved elite to that slot in pricing so common sense would dictate that the advantage plus system is now elite, but you know what happens when you assume...

Okay, thanks for the clarification. See, this being the DSVMII announcement thread, I thought your question was in relation to that. You are simply asking if your Adv+ package is now Elite, because of the price drop, right? The answer to that is no. You purchased Advantage+, not Elite. The fact that the price dropped on Elite and Advantage+ was eliminated, doesn't upgrade you to Elite, unfortunately, and is not retroactive.

As for the DSVMII update, you are a TRIFECTA customer no matter the package purchased and are eligible for the update.

Alright. Well I was, originally, planning on upgrading, then switching to another company, but I decided that either amount of money was too much for what I'm trying to achieve. Honestly I was just asking in case I decided to get a mod that needed tuning. Financially, that's stupid of me. I only have a season or two left on this car prior to demanding a better autox car.

You're tune has been awesome and flawless for me, don't get me wrong, but every event I attend, makes it appearant that the Cruze is no track monkey. Lol. And by the time you mod it to be competitive, you're reclassed with bigger, faster monkeys. Lol.

Depends on what mods you trying to do, Intake and a catback you are good. Green injectors and E85 you may need it. Forge atmospheric, I'll let you guys battle that out if a tune was or wasn't needed.

Mods and Auto X are better for the non SCCA events for me at least.

The "Advantage" lists that it's only for 100% bone stock cars but I see on your site you can order it with a short ram intake. That leads me to believe that the "Advantage" tune is applicable to bolt on cars or, at the very least, those with intakes. Would that be an accurate assumption?

Hello,

Incorrect assumption ;)

We have a stage 1 package that can be selected with Advantage. This is a WOT-Tuning kit which would include a K&N intake and a calibration which is individualized to take into account. It is a 'perk' to those that buy the Stage 1 kit.

However, if you already have modifications, you would need the Elite package if you want those mods accounted for in the programming.

Well, that'd have been my second guess. Thanks!
