2012 Chevrolet Cruze wins two miles per gallon

A publication of Autobloggreen.com, Jeremy Korzeniewski, said that GM has managed to earn an additional two miles per gallon in the Chevrolet Cruze 2012 - at least in certain configurations. We're not quite sure how they did it, but General Motors engineers have succeeded.

According to the official guide to online ordering for the 2012 Cruze, GM's compact sedan is equipped with the 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and six-speed automatic transmission, will be rated at 38 miles per gallon in road. There is some indication that there will be an improvement to the car's rating of 24 mpg city. By way of comparison, the Eco model achieves 42 mpg on the highway.

We're not sure how Chevrolet has improved the highway fuel mileage of the Cruze for 2012.

Green Car Reports said that the increase in mileage was achieved by reducing the final ratio of 3.87 to 3.53 disk.
