2011 Chevrolet Cruze Eco, RS Appearance Package: 2010 New York Auto Show
Chevy says the Eco model will come with the 1.4L Ecotec turbo engine with 138hp, 6 speed manual, and 40mpg.
They also showed a Cruze model with the RS appearance package. The RS is nice looking in the photos offering just the right amount of sport look without screaming "kiddy racer!". The RS appearance package will be offered on the LT and LTZ model.

Just read some pre-production numbers. The 1.4 Turbo engine is the optional engine. The base engine is a 1.8 liter engine without turbo. There is almost no difference in horsepower between the two engines,...however, there's a lot more torque in the 1.4 engine than in the 1.8L. What's puzzling is what I've read so far puts the 1.4L turbo performance numbers for 0-60 at between 9 to 10 seconds and this is the optional engine. Those are numbers you'd expect from the base model. There's the possibility of a 2.0 direct injection turbo SS model. What about turning this 1.4 and 1.8 into a direct injection engine? Is the production and sales cost too high to go completely direct injection to improve both performance AND fuel economy?
