Whats the deal with the GM cookie cutter dash @!#$. Why don't they just do away with brand identity and file everything under the GM name if they are going to just keep making redundant vehicles. This parts bin stuff has to stop, or there isnt going to be a GM.

Well, Chevrolet is not planning to offer an SS version of its Cruze sedan, despite recent rumors to the contrary. The company is holding its line on not deploying the SS branding to every model—in fact, at this point the only Chevy so badged is the Camaro—and as such, there won’t be a Cruze SS.
That doesn’t, however, rule out the possibility of an engine with more power than what’s currently offered for the car—two four-cylinder motors with 138 hp each. Rather than a sport-oriented Cruze SS, GM is considering a more-luxurious Cruze, which would include the option for an upgraded powerplant. GM’s product planners have a number of options to choose from, should they go this route: there’s a 182-hp 2.4-liter four used in the Buick Regal and upcoming Verano, as well as a 2.0-liter turbo four that’s tuned to make between 220 and 260 hp.
But with GM focusing on mainstream models, its sales and profits are up. Besides, there already is some Chevy performance available on the cheap: the 312-hp, rear-drive Camaro starts at $23,530.
In the May 2011 issue of Road & Track (page 40) is a brief 'Tested' article, "2011 CHevrolet Cruze Eco: Fun, efficient, frugal," by Shaun Bailey.
...here are the articles' highlights:
• 0-60 MPH = 8.1 sec.
• 0-¼ MILE = 16.2 sec @ 86.8 mph
• Top Speed = 130 mph (electronically limited)
• Skidpad = 0.84 G
• Slalom = 67.3 mph
• Curb Weight = 3050 lbs.
Seems to be just as fast as a stock Z24...
That's one heavy bitch. Imagine the fuel economy if it was 2400lbs.

Cruze has a recall right now because of the steering shaft. Concern about it not being installed correctly lol. They said they also will check out the transmissions when people bring them in for the steering recalls. Anybody know whats up with the trannys?
