GM showed a photo of the Cruze to employees during a TV presentation.

Workers caught a brief glimpse of the car coming to the Lordstown plant, but General Motors still is keeping the Chevrolet Cruze under wraps.

He noted that the Cruze promises success because GM is powering the car with a new 1.4-liter, turbocharged engine that is to have fuel efficiency of 45 mpg.

Why does Chevy have to build cars with such an ugly front grille?

Because if they put the ugliness in back it wouldn’t be as noticeable.

Yeah, 2011 model year to be released in 2010, I think. They could use it now.

It’s NOT the front grill. It’s that “gold” color from the Chevy symbol that turns off people. In L.A., I know a paintshop that agrees to have the Chevy symbol painted black when requested.

I've always thought Chevy needed a new symbol for its brand. It's just not working for them, and it really stands out.

Take this Mazda:



Now try to put a chevy emblem on it. It definitely loses some of the ebb and flow of the car. I think my main difficulty with the symbol is that todays cars are curvaceous; Chevy's symbol is very linear and stilted.
