2016 Chevrolet Cruze Offers 570 Miles of Range
Offering up an EPA-estimated highway mileage of 42 mpg, the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Cruze L, LS and LT models can offer 570 miles of range in optimal driving conditions. 570 miles of range!
That means we can comfortably drive from Atlanta to New Orleans, Columbus (OH) to New York City, San Diego to San Francisco or Albuquerque to Denver without having to fill up. Or, make 33 trips to our closest Krispy Kreme location without ever having to go near the gas pumps.
The Cruze’s closest competitors, the Ford Focus, Nissan Sentra FE, Mazda3 and Hyundai Elantra offer 40, 40, 41, and 37 mpg highway respectively.
How does it get to 570 miles per tank? Under the hood there’s a new, direct-injected 1.4L Ecotec turbo and a leaner architecture, which contributes to a nearly 250-pound (113 kg) weight reduction on L, LS and LT trims over previous models. Stop/start technology bolsters efficiency in stop-and-go traffic, helping the Cruze offer an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in city driving – a 7-percent increase over previous models.
The Cruze range expands in the fall with an all-new hatchback model and the Cruze diesel returns in early 2017.
