Performance Capabilities

Motivating the new Chevy Cruze is a 1.4L DOHC turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that develops up to 153 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. With efficient technology like Continuously Variable Valve Timing, you’ll be pleased to see a fuel return of up to an EPA-estimated 37 mpg highway. There is a 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission to choose from. You also have the option of a 1.6L Turbo Diesel 4-cylinder engine that brings you 240 lb-ft of torque with an impressive EPA-estimated 52 mpg highway. The diesel engine is mated with a 9-speed automatic transmission for smooth transitions.

The base engine of the new Ford Focus is a 2.0L I-4 engine that brings you a comparable 160 hp, but you’ll only see up to an EPA-estimated 34 mpg highway on the base engine. A 5-speed manual and 6-speed automatic are your transmission options. Unlike the Chevy Cruze, the Ford Focus offers no turbo-diesel engine option.


Technology Highlights

Inside of the new Chevy Cruze, you’ll enjoy the 7-inch or 8-inch touchscreen display that brings you Chevy MyLink to hook up your smartphone for audio streaming, hands-free phone calls, integrated navigation services, and so much more. OnStar is also standard, providing you with hot features like 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot capability and emergency crash notification services.

The new Ford Focus comes standard with a 4.2-inch LCD display that lacks touchscreen capabilities for your infotainment services. A touchscreen display with SYNC®3 technology is available with an upgrade, but you still won’t have a high-speed internet connection.
