    The Cruze has been through an entire generation and is being replaced and not an SS model. GM = Genetically Mutated

    You can convert a plain-jane Cruze into a sportscar yourself.

    Oh let me go buy a cruze to ” convert ” into an SS said nobody every please show me a cruze over 350 Horse power and go show me Cobalts over 350 horses , theres literally hundreds of examples because a base SS comes with a forged crank, and other things you simply can’t ” convert” a cruze into a competitive ” sports car” such as an SRT4 Dart or like the new SI there are many components that come on an SS that you can’t just slap on a cruze. Like brembo brake packages. etc Thats like saying go buy a v6 Camaro and turn it into an SS , dumbest comment ever
