Pretty cool! Starts at something like 16k for the turbo model...
Fuck the Cruze with a rubber dick until it breaks off, and then beat it to death with the rest of it.
I own a Cobalt SS N/A and have compared the specs. They killed the Cobalt, kept the price the same and shrunk the car. The TURBO LTZ model puts out a whopping 138 bhp, which is less than the base model Cobalt had, and you have to stab the gas to get any boost out of it. Not to mention the inevitable reliability issues that are going to come along with a GM turbo.
Other than the 6-speed auto, every single thing they discuss in the powertrain video already existed in the Ecotech engines (except the old 2.2L). All GM added were some colors and trickled-down cabin technology. It's even the same cheap interior. Good luck competing with Honda and Toyota with this one.
Thanks for one of the lamest re-brandings in history, assholes.
EDIT: Oh, and if you really want to know how I feel, ask me about my Cobalt.
