Air Shutter Helps Chevrolet Cruze to do 40MPG

Recommended Posts

Does the Indian version of the Cruze has such system & if so would it be advisable to shut of the system' date=' would the engine heat up reducing its?life. Warantty ?[/quote']

Nope,it isn't available in the Indian Trim.This System features on the Cruze Eco model for USA and later would be launched worldwide.The best thing about it is that it does a Whopping 40MPG(18Kmpl approx.) being a Petrol Compact Sedan.

It shuts Automatically at higher speeds improving the Aerodynamics of the car.In city conditions shutter opens enhancing greater flow of air through the engine for cooling.

Check some pics of Cruze Eco:




The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze Eco sports a very efficient 1.4 Liter Turbocharged Ecotec engine that produces a maximum power of 138 HP (103 kW) and a maximum 200 Nm (148 lb-ft) of torque, enabling a cruising range of 800KM. The drivetrain is coupled with a 6-Speed Manual Transmission Gearbox.0-100 kmph in 9secs FLAT

But along with all these features comes an amazing fuel efficiency of almost 40 MPG on highway and complementing the above are :-

Aerodynamics improvements due to lower front grill with a shutter which closes at higher speeds.
