2013 Cruze New Features
The Lordstown-built Chevrolet Cruze has several new features for 2013 that General Motors hopes will help the car maintain its position as one of the top-selling cars in America.
According to General Motors, more versions of the car will feature Chevrolet’s MyLink multimedia system as a standard feature.

MyLink is a way to use your phone in the car easily because the controls are in the steering wheel, according to the website The controls also are on a touch screen.

At its most basic, MyLink is an in-dash navigation and entertainment system that pairs with Bluetooth in an easy-to-use system. It allows the user to make calls with voice dial. It also allows users to use applications such as Pandora, the Internet-streaming music application.

Some optional equipment to be offered in the 2013 Cruze are driver and front-passenger illuminated vanity mirrors, auto-dimming inside rearview mirror, rear-vision camera, rear park assist and side blind-zone alert, GM said.

New exterior colors to be available are cyber gray metallic, champagne silver metallic and Atlantis blue metallic.

The Eco model, when equipped with a manual transmission, achieves an EPA-estimated 42 mpg highway, making it the most fuel-efficient, gasoline-powered, nonhybrid car in America, GM says.

The plant is also working on several prototype diesel Cruzes in preparation for launch of the 2013 diesel model to be made in the Lordstown, Ohio facility.
