    Chevrolet Says Three Debuts Are Coming To New York


    • Three Debuts Are Coming For Chevrolet In New York

    The New York Auto Show is just a couple weeks away and news of what will be appearing is beginning to show up. Autoblog has learned that Chevrolet will have three major debuts at the show. The debuts will include new version of the Corvette, an updated 2015 Cruze, and a "important new addition to our small-vehicle lineup."

    Lets begin with the Corvette. Autoblog speculates that it could track-focused version of the Z06 model, limited-edition package, or something else. We keen to thinking its the latter two at this time. Then there is the 2015 Cruze. As we reported last week, spy shots of what is purported to be the 2015 model was caught in China. Will it be the same?

    The last model debut intrigues us as it doesn't seem to hint at a replacement for either the Spark or Sonic. Could it be a subcompact crossover?

    We'll have the answers in a couple week's time.

    Corvette Grand Sport, NG Cruze (not the one pitured in China), and the Chevrolet Adra?...

    Grand Sport actually came to my mind when I was working on this story.

    Haven't seen any camo'd small Chevy protoypes in spy shots, I will be interested in seeing what's coming. I hope the NG Cruze comes in coupe and wagon (or hatch) styles in addition to the sedan.

    I think it was Reuss either last year or the year before saying that not having the Cruze hatchback here was not a wise decision. I wouldn't be surprised if we see one this time around.

    I think they should do a lower priced version of the Corvette. Maybe a bit of a decontented interior and V6 or smaller V8. The Corvette's version of a Range Rover Evoqe.

    Would you say the same for 911 or S Class?

      Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will not be debuting any new products Detroit Auto Show, instead announcing that it will be debuting a vehicle at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
      “As with any international auto show, sometimes product cycle launches do not coincide with show dates,” said Rod Alberts, NAIAS executive director to the Detroit Free Press.
      Stephanie Brinley, senior analyst at IHS Automotive agrees with Alberts. FCA is right in the middle of developing the 2018 Jeep Wrangler and next-generation Ram 1500. Both models are expected to be revealed within the next 12 to 18 months.
      “Not having a car in Detroit is much more about FCA's product development life cycles than anything else. I am certain it's not a decision that was taken lightly," said Brinley.
      This isn't the first time that Chrysler skipped debuting a new vehicle at the Detroit Auto Show. Back in 2010, the company was beginning to recovery from bankruptcy.
      FCA isn't saying what they'll be showing at CES, but sources tell Bloomberg that it will be an electric vehicle based on the Chrysler Pacifica.

      As a number of manufacturers are running away from diesel (and who can blame them), Chevrolet is running towards it with the introduction of the Cruze Diesel early next year. Now Chevrolet has announced pricing for the diesel variant.
      The Cruze Diesel will begin at $24,670 for the six-speed manual and $26,270 for the nine-speed automatic. Like the previous Cruze Diesel, the new model will only be available in the LT trim which nets you LED daytime running lights, seven-inch infotainment system, and six-speaker audio system. The diesel will also get the optional Convenience package as standard - keyless entry, push-button start, power driver's seat, and heat for the front seats. 
      In terms of options, a leather package for $1,125 is available for both transmissions. The automatic also gets the option of the Sun/Sound/Confidence package. The 'too many words for a name' package adds a Bose nine-speaker audio system, an 8-inch infotainment system, a color screen for the trip computer, power sunroof, blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, and rear cross-traffic alert. This package adds $3,680.
      It should be noted this pricing is for the sedan. The Cruze Diesel hatchback isn't due till 2018.
