U.S. 2011 Chevrolet Cruze Production Starts, Deliveries Begin Soon

September 8, 2010

If you've been eagerly awaiting your own 2011 Cruze or are just anxious to see them up close at the dealership, your wait is nearly over. The first Cruze models built in the U.S. rolled off the line today, headed to dealerships all over the country.

The Cruze is built for the U.S. at GM's 4,500-worker Lordstown, Ohio plant. The conservatively styled yet sophisticated and relatively inexpensive sedan is Chevrolet's first real foray into the compact car market in years, following on the largely forgettable effort from the Cobalt.

Tim Allen will be backing the new 2011 Cruze's rollout as part of his gig as the new voice of Chevrolet. You may have already seen the first ads. Chevrolet is pushing hard on the Cruze launch because it is an important vehicle for the company, both here and abroad.

The 2011 Cruze is already Chevrolet's best-selling car model outside the U.S., moving over 165,000 units this year alone, second within the brand only to the Silverado.

Deliveries to the first U.S. customers are expected to start next week. For more on the new compact sedan, check out our 2011 Chevrolet Cruze first drive.
