GM Will Delay Next-Generation Cruze by One Year

Sources claim that General Motors has decided to delay the launch of its next-generation Chevrolet Cruze by one year. According to the source, the delay is to allow Chevrolet to make some changes to the vehicle and allow it to squeeze additional sales from the current vehicle. The next generation Cruze had been set to debut in late 2014.

However, the sources indicate that production of the new vehicle won't begin until December of 2015. GM maintains that the current vehicle is still selling well.

GM says that the next generation Cruze will get a complete redesign and will feature a larger trunk and more space inside. The next generation also promises improved fuel economy. Sales of the Cruze in the US were up almost 17% for the first six months of 2013.
