Along with a new 40-mpg highway Cruze Eco model, Chevrolet will debut an RS sport appearance package for the 2011 Cruze at the New York Auto Show. The package consists of a new front fascia, fog lights, side skits and a rear spoiler. Inside, additions include chrome accent rings instead of the standard silver ones, as well as new opaque cluster bezels that allow the ice blue backlighting to glow through.
Chevy has said the new RS sport appearance package will be available on the mid-level LT trim and top-level LTZ trim, both of which come standard with Chevy’s new EcoTec 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder making 138-hp and 148 ft-lbs of torque.
“For customers who want even more personality and presence in their vehicle, the RS appearance package builds on the already bold face and coupe-like proportions of the Cruze,” said Michael Simcoe, executive director, North American Exterior Design.
