Chevrolet officially released the second generation of the Chevy Cruze in 2014. It is also the last generation of the vehicle. In 2018 General Motors announced it would stop production of the Cruze following the 2019 model year. There has not yet been any announcement as to whether or not Chevy will bring the model back. General Motors has shifted its focus more on expanding its SUV and crossover lineup. While the market for these vehicle types has increased in recent years, should the demand return for more sedans, there's always the possibility of bringing the Cruze back. For now, you'll need to shop for the Cruze as a used vehicle.
Now, the first official second generation of the Chevy Cruze came out in 2014. However, for two years, this second generation was focused entirely on the Chinese market. So, chances are, if you're looking at a 2014 or 2015 model year, it is still considered part of the first generation (unless it has been imported from China). As the likelihood of you coming across a Chinese Cruze import in the middle of Ohio is low at best, you will want to focus on the 2016 model year as the first official North American release of the Cruze. You'll also be happy to note that the Cruze was formally built in Lordstown, southeast of Cleveland, and part of the Youngstown metro area.
The updated second-generation Chevy Cruze hit the market in 2016 featuring a new facial design, including a split grille and a longer profile. It also offered a hatchback option, which the previous model did not offer. For the 2016 model year, the Cruze came with an updated audio system that could support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Under the hood, the Cruze came with two engine options. This includes the 1.4L I4 and the 1.6L diesel engine. It also has three transmission types. You'll find the 6-speed manual transmission on some of the base trims, while the upgraded trims come with either a 6-speed automatic or a 7-speed automatic.
The trims in 2016 through 2019 models included the L, the LS, LT, and the Premier. Previously with the first generation, the Chevy Cruze offered a 1LT and 2LT (many other Chevy vehicles offer two LT options, often with one providing a leather interior and the other a cloth), but Chevy combined the two for the second generation.
All 2016 model releases, regardless of trim, come with a 7-inch touchscreen running Chevy's MyLink infotainment system. The entertainment setup features AM/FM, AU jack, SiriusXM radio, OnStar, plus an optional WiFi hotspot. When considering the top two trim packages (the LT and the Premier package), Chevy offered an RS Sport Package, which installed alloy wheels, increased the touchscreen size to 8-inches, and installed a Bose premium sound system.
The L package only comes with a manual transmission, so if you're looking for a base Chevy Cruze from 2016, you will only find manual transmission options. All other trim packages offer both manual and automatic, except for Premier, which has a 7-speed automatic transmission.
The 2017 and 2018 models didn't add much of note to the Chevy Cruze second generation. There were a few tweaks and minor adjustments, but for the most part, 2016-2018 models all have the same general features. The 2019 model year (the final model year) did come with a facelift. Chevy typically provides a mid-cycle facelift, so at least in the early stages of the 2019 model year, General Motors likely had fully anticipated on continuing production (otherwise it likely would not have put in the effort to bring the new cosmetic features). Regardless, the facelift upgraded the front grille on the Cruze. It also stopped offering the 6-speed manual transmission. Chevy also upgraded the MyLink system to the company's third-generation infotainment service.
General Motors just recently released the company's second-generation Chevy Traverse. The 2018 model year marked the beginning of the model upgrade. Production started to the north of Ohio in Lansing, Michigan, and is one of the fastest-growing models in the Chevy lineup. It has become so popular General Motors has started to sell the vehicle around the world, including in South Korea, Russia, the Middle East, and South America.
There are many new features found in the first year of the second-generation Chevy Traverse. This includes its classification. Throughout the first generation, the Traverse was classified as a full-size SUV. Now, Chevy has classified it as a mid-size crossover SUV.
With the 2018 release, the Traverse came with five different trim packages. The base trim is the L, and then there is the LS, LT, Premier, and as is the case for many of the larger vehicles produced by Chevy, a High Country (the High Country is the top-level trim for the Chevy Silverado 1500, for example)
The LS, LT, and Premier came in either front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive drivetrains, but the base L was only available in FWD while the High Country was only available in AWD. Each of the vehicles also came with the same 3.6L V6 that produced 310 horsepower. However, for the 2018 release, Chevy did offer an RS performance add-on package, which came used a 2.0L turbo I4 (which it discontinued after the 2019 model year).
On the base L package, the second-generation Chevy Traverse featured several upgraded safety features, including Chevy's StabiliTrak (an electronic stability control system), several traction modes, and Teen Driver technology. It also used Chevrolet MyLink through the SUV's seven-inch touchscreen display.
The LS package came primarily with the same L features, plus tinted glass, and the ability to add AWD to the vehicle. The LT package came in either LT Cloth or LT Leather. The LT Leather, which swapped out cloth seating for leather, also saw an improvement in the sound system, adopting a 10-speaker Bose premium sound system. It also installed lumbar support and heating within the seats as well.
The Premier added onto the LT Leather package, installing new LED headlamps, 20-inch aluminum allows wheels, plus a hands-free power tailgate. The High Country took this a step further, installing a tow package, a SkyScape panoramic moonroof, IntelliBeam automatic front high beams, plus several additional features.
As mentioned earlier, a sports performance RS package could be added on to the LT trim, which brought with it new paint jobs, black roof rails, and the turbocharged I4 (although the 2020 second-generation ditched the engine).
Chevy has also released several other add-on packages, including the Redline Edition, which again brought with it new paint jobs, gloss black window treatment, and several other tweaks.
As General Motors had just released a brand new generation the year before, the 2019 Chevy Traverse saw very little in the way of updates and new features, outside of a few minor tweaks and paint changes. For the 2020 model year, Chevy dropped the turbo I4 engine, upgraded the infotainment system, and added new Teen Driver features, including a buckle-to-drive requirement. Without a fastened seat belt, the car does not drive when Teen Driver has been activated. Chevy typically releases a mid-generation facelift for its vehicles, so there is a good chance you'll see more substantial updates to the Chevy Traverse either with the 2021 or 2022 models.
