CLEVELAND-- American-made classics with a twist-- the focus of Chevy's display. Everyone is talking about the 2013 Chevy Cruze that gets 42 miles per gallon. It has a turbo diesel engine. The Cruze is the first passenger diesel car ever produced by a U.S. automaker. It's roomy and has heated leather seats--standard.
"It's an exciting year for Chevy," says Bob Serpentini of Serpentini Chevrolet. "We have 13 new launches this year including the 2014 Impala. The outside is totally restyled and the interior is world class. You have got to see this one in person, it's a beautifully finished car."
The Chevy SILVERADO is big and bad and better than before. It has more head room and foot room in the redesigned cab. It also has under the hood, three all new EcoTech3 engines. A V-6 and two V-8s. All three engines incorporate direct fuel injection, cylinder deactivation and continuously variable valve-timing-- found no where else.
