2017 Chevrolet Cruze
The Chevrolet Cruze has always flourished as a great compact sedan, with excellent cargo space and a cool sporty appearance. Now the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze is available as a hatchback for extra space and accessibility. It’s known as a great road trip car, with comfortable seats and a quiet cabin. Now, there’s an available diesel engine for this sedan, so you can go over 700 miles on one tank. This is a small car packed with big dreams, equipped to help you chase your passions to the horizon.
Whenever you’re ready to give the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze a try, just give us a call here in Forest Lake, MN and we’ll set you up with a test drive right away. Keep in mind, all of our new vehicles and most of our used ones include our Lifetime Powertrain Warranty. This warranty will keep your new Cruze in great shape for as long as you own it. There are lots of great places around Minnesota that you can get to on one tank of diesel, so a new Cruze might be what you’re looking for here in the mid-west. Our dealership is just a short trip away from North Branch, Roseville, and White Bear Lake, so come see us today!
No matter what your passion is, the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze has the space for you to follow it. Want to go camping this weekend? Take your mountain bike out for a spin or a race? Or maybe you’ve started a house project and you need to haul your materials back from the hardware store. The 2017 Cruze Hatch has more space than ever. Plus, the rear seats feature 60/40 split folding, so you can still make some extra space and carry a rear passenger. For those of you taking your pets to the park, all-weather floor mats are available, and the Hatch style makes it easy for even big dogs to hop up and enjoy the ride.
The Cruze makes for a fantastic road trip car, as well. Not only is there plenty of room for all your snacks and maybe a change of clothes, it’s highly efficient as well. There are lots of driver assistance features to keep you safe and comfortable on the road. The Cruze also has a great audio system with a USB port and Bluetooth, so you can connect your awesome road trip playlists. Upgrade to the Cruze Premium to get your hands on the amazing Bose premium nine-speaker sound system.
You can get most trims with either a manual or automatic transmission, whichever suits you best. In fact, the Cruze is a highly customizable car. It offers up to eleven exterior body colors, and five interior color schemes. If you want a sportier appearance, Chevrolet is including the 2017 Cruze in the Redline lineup. All of the Redline series vehicles feature a sportier, more street-smart design, with bright red highlights and black exterior accents. The Redline series went live this spring, so it’s available on the Cruze LT as of April.

MyChevrolet has a remote control app that helps you control and stay connected to your vehicle. With the tap of a finger, you can lock or unlock your doors, or even start or stop your engine. The app lets you view diagnostic information on your phone. You can send destinations right from your phone to your car’s navigation system — including parking reminders, so no more wandering around clicking your keys to find your car.
The Cruze also offers plenty of entertainment for your road trip. The standard Chevrolet MyLink comes with a 7-inch color touchscreen, so your favorite music and apps are within easy reach. You can also add features to connect your Apple or Android device, or turn your Cruze into a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Seven devices can connect to the hotspot, so everyone can work or play on the go.
For extra safety and assistance, Chevrolet Complete Care is included with all 2017 models. In addition to warranties, Complete Care includes a five-year subscription to OnStar Basic Plan and a three-month trial of OnStar Guidance Plan. The OnStar Basic Plan lets you access your vehicle with the MyLink phone app, and the Guidance Plan includes features like automatic crash response, SOS/emergency services, and hands-free calling and navigation. It also offers crisis assistance, roadside assistance, and stolen vehicle assistance.
There are several transmission options between the two available engines in the 2017 Cruze. All configurations are front-wheel-drive. The 1.4L DOHC turbocharged 4-cylinder engine comes standard, paired with a six-speed manual transmission. All trims except the Diesel have an optional six-speed automatic transmission. The 1.6L Turbo diesel engine is available in the exclusive Diesel trim, paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Cruze diesel hatchback will follow later this year.
With 153 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque from the 1.4L gasoline engine, the Cruze goes from 0 to 60 in less than eight seconds, and will creep up on 90 mph over a quarter mile. The Cruze is designed for efficiency and comfort more than off-the-line power, so the 1.4L engine has a 500-mile range and an easy, comfortable ride. To maximize this performance, the new 1.6L turbo diesel engine will go 700 miles before it needs to fill up. The Cruze also lets you customize your driving experience, offering both a manual and automatic transmission on nearly every trim.
The Cruze provides a very quiet cabin and a comfortable drive on highways and city streets alike. Every trim is equipped with standard 4-wheel antilock disc brakes and the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system. Standard wheels range from 15 to 17 inches, with 18-inch wheels as part of the Redline RS Package. The standard all-season tires help provide that quiet, smooth ride, and also help provide a reassuring 161-ft 70-to-zero stopping distance. The Cruze is designed for long, carefree drives, so the steering is dependable and predictable, with no unexpected twitches to ruin your road trip. Whether you’re headed into work or out on vacation, the Cruze helps get you there without that tired, long-drive feeling.

The Cruze has always been made to be comfortable, but this 2017 model offers a whole new level of space. The LT and Premium trims are now available in the first-ever Cruze Hatch style. These new hatchbacks have the same compact body length and slim figure we’re used to seeing from the Cruze, but they offer a whopping 47.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats down. Even with the rear seats filled, the back hosts 25 cubic feet, which is a huge jump from the sedan’s 16-cu-ft trunk.
The cabin is quiet and handsomely designed, with sleek curves and lots of space. Most trims come standard with five cozy cloth seats, and the hatchback accommodates taller passengers easier than the sedan. All three rear seats also feature tether anchors for child safety seats. The Premier model offers more comfort than ever, with standard heated front seats and available heated rear seats. Soft leather trim is also available in various sophisticated color schemes.
Several cargo options are also available to make the most of the Cruze’s space. Buyers can add a cargo net and cargo tray to the spacious trunk to help secure whatever you need to take with you. All-weather floor mats are also available, for easy cleaning after an adventure. The standard and optional connectivity features make this an easy, comfortable car to drive or work from.
Chevrolet offers a comprehensive “prevent, protect, respond” approach to safety. There are multiple alert and assist systems available on the Cruze:
- Rear vision camera
- Forward collision alert
- Rear park assist
- Lane keep assist
- Side blind zone alert
- Rear cross traffic alert
The Cruze also has 10 standard airbags with optimal air bag deployment sensors in case of a crash. Chevrolet uses high-strength steel and alloys in the Cruze and other vehicles, to maximize passenger protection without sacrificing performance and efficiency. If you are in an accident, Chevrolet provides a free trial of OnStar to help you contact emergency services quickly.
