Chevy Cruze impresses some early drivers

/article/20100420/BLOG06/100429976

The Volt may get the attention, but Cruze matters. In the last couple decades, GM had placemarkers in some segments; not bad cars, but not premium and some even behind the pack at release. Cruze goes head-to-head with anything in the compact segment, like every GM release in the last five years. I'm in a mostly-GM dealer group, and it's easier to sell great product than good value.

GM Models (siblings omitted) released 2001-06: '02 Avalanche, Aveo, Aztek, Cobalt, Colorado, '03 CTS, DTS, '05 Equinox, '02 Escalade, G6, '04 Grand Prix, GTO, HHR, Impala, Lucerne, '04 Malibu, Monte Carlo, Solstice, SSR, STS, TrailBlazer and Uplander.
