The Chevrolet Cruze is not selling well. Sales of the model are down 28% this year, leading the industry average drop of 13.2%. As a result, the Lordstown, Ohio factory that produces the Cruze is cutting a shift... and losing jobs.
Earlier today plant leaders let factory workers know about the changes and the several hundred jobs that would be lost. The Cruze once sold 273,000 copies a year but has recently slowed along with other US sedan sales. In 2017 Chevrolet only moved 184,000 of the small sedans.
Meanwhile, crossovers and suv sales are holding steady or growing. A recent IHS report pegs that 66.9% of crossover and suv owners buy another crossover or suv. Are sedans about to die once and for all? Or will the slump rebound? Only time will tell.
What do you think?

A new infographic from Spork Marketing draws an interesting comparison between the 1998 Chevrolet Silverado diesel and the 2018 Chevy Colorado Diesel. The older truck in a larger segment with a large 6.5-liter displacement diesel engine must surely have greater torque and capacities, right? Guess again. The "smaller," modern Chevy actually matches the old 155 Silverado in every category except bed length. The new Colorado is 50% more fuel efficient but has the same power and torque as the older Silverado. The new Colorado can tow more but is down just a smidge on Max rated payload. We found the inflation-adjusted price comparison the most surprising. What spec comparison surprised you?
hello everyone im a long time lurker, ive been trying to find answer but cant find a clear one or even remotely, the question is surely beaten to death but here we go.
I have a 2017 silverado LT, i already have 285r70/17 M/T im looking to buy newer rims the one i like have a 10 mm offset, im looking for a more aggressive stance i was wondering if i put 1.5 inchs spacer or 1.75" will the whole thing rub everywhere i have a 3 inchs level kit in front and 1 inch in back.
Also would it be preferable to have an negative offset wheel instead of spacers ?
Hello, I have tried called my local dealerships parts department and cannot seem to get an answers so I thought I might have better luck here. I have a 2017 silverado but I think the tail lights on the 2018 look way better. will the 2018 tail lights swap directly with the 2017?
any help is appreciated
