Find the 2011 Chevy Cruze Inventory in PA!
The Chevy Cruze, an all new model for 2011 is in stock at Klick Lewis Cars, serving Harrisburg and Lancaster PA. Launched as a 2011 model, the Cruze replaces the sturdy but boring Cobalt, and it’s a great leap forward in technology, features and appeal. The Cruze was developed jointly by GM tech centers in Asia, Europe and the United States to battle in the most crowded part of the passenger-car market.
The 2011 Cruze is offered with a choice of two adequately powered engines: A 1.8-liter four-cylinder and 1.4-liter four-cylinder with a turbocharger. Both the manual and automatic transmissions have six speeds, which is rare in this class. The automatic offers some high-tech features that help conserve fuel. Across the line, the Cruze averages some of the best EPA mileage ratings among compacts. Yet if there’s an area where Cruze falls below the benchmark, we might summarize it this way: Buyers seeking maximum acceleration in their compact sedan should probably consider one of those competitors.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has announced its Top Safety Picks for 2011, with 66 vehicles making the list. One priority in this year’s testing was to judge weather a vehicle has a strong enough roof that would offers exceptional protection in the event of a rollover accident.
The Top Safety Pick is chosen after the IIHS has done a variety of tests, including how each vehicle does its job of protecting drivers and passengers in front, side, rollover, and rear crashes. The organization’s highest rating is labeled as ‘Good’. Other grades include “acceptable,” “marginal” and “poor.” However, last year, the IIHS toughened its standards, adding the requirement that all qualifiers must earn a “good” rating in IIHS roof-strength tests that measure how much protection is offered in a rollover crash. That stricter standard sharply narrowed the initial field of 2010 models. But many carmakers have improved the roofs of their vehicles in the last year.
One vehicle that received a Top Safety Pick was the all new Chevrolet Cruze. GM designed the Cruze, which has 10 standard airbags (including ones for the knees), in such a way that it would outperform the federal government’s minimum roof strength requirements.
