Contray to what Mr. Karl Slym recently said, General Motors is planning to launch a petrol version of the Chevrolet Cruze. The company is in its final stages of launching the Cruze Petrol which is expected to sport a 1.4 liter turbo-charged ECOTEC motor. Enhanced with its exhaust driven turbocharger, the Chevrolet Cruze’s Ecotec 1.4L turbo performs like a larger engine when needed, but retains the efficiency of a small displacement 4-cylinder in most driving conditions. It is standard on LT and LTZ models, with power ratings estimated at 138 horsepower and 200 Nm of torque. The launch is expected this festive season.
