Pine Belt Chevrolet Cruze: At A Glance

The 2012 Chevrolet Cruze

Forget about what compact cars have been, Cruze is everything a compact car should be. It gives you more of everything you need and deserve from efficiency to safety, features to styling. Conventional compact wisdom is challenged with one simple word: more.

It’s designed to fit seamlessly into your ever-evolving life. Cruze offers more cargo space3, more safety with best-in-class 10 standard air bags4, and more miles per gallon in the Cruze Eco. At 42 MPG5, it’s the best highway mileage of any gas engine in America. Your wallet is going to thank you.

All around, it’s more of what your life needs.

Exterior: An extension of personal style

Cruze exterior design gives you the presence of a more expensive car with its beveled hood, sharp angles and taut curves. Centered by the strong, attention-grabbing Chevrolet grille, its swept-back lamps lead the eye across its sculpted fenders, around the sides and back again. Bottom line? Don’t be surprised when people stop to admire.

And sure, Cruze leaves a lasting impression with its bold exterior design, but don’t forget those curves, lines and angles do more than just please the eye and turn heads. They improve the aerodynamics of Cruze, in the end optimizing fuel efficiency5 and helping you get the most out of each drop of fuel.

Interior: Generous room and comfort

It’s called a compact, but that just doesn’t seem fair to other compact cars. Its cavernous interior not only has more passenger room than Ford Focus sedan and Toyota Corolla, it beats them out with more cargo space too. And Cruze is smart about how to use all that space with 60/40 folding rear seats so you can find the room for larger items. There’s even refined touches such as rich colors, bold dials and details like available leather-appointed seats that give Cruze a premium feel.

You can even enjoy peace and quiet while driving. Cruze is designed to keep outside noise outside with a triple-sealed, acoustic-laminated glass windshield. When you’re inside Cruze, you’re wrapped in amenities uncommon among compact cars. No wonder it left an impression on the editors at Ward’s AutoWorld. They went on to name Cruze as one of Ward’s 10 Best Interiors of 2011, noting its sharp appearance and exceptional value.

Performance: Sophisticated performance, ride and handling. You want a car that makes the most out of every dollar you put in the gas tank, but without sacrificing performance and handling. To get those results you need to have a pretty impressive engine, and Cruze absolutely does.

The available 1.4L turbocharged engine is designed for fuel efficiency without compromising performance. It delivers 138 horsepower and accelerates with authority. Cruze takes on tight corners with rack-mounted electric power steering and a race-proven Z-link rear suspension on LT, LTZ and Eco automatic models. It’s a driving experience that just might surprise you. It sure surprised some of our competitors, especially when AMCI Testing announced that the 2011 Cruze LTZ outcornered the 2011 BMW 328i6 on dry pavement.

Getting the most out of each drop of fuel: With Cruze Eco in our family of vehicles, we’re raising the bar of fuel efficiency to MMPG (that’s More Miles Per Gallon) with an impressive 42 MPG highway5. It’s the best highway mileage of any gasoline engine in America. It’s built with you in mind.

Eco holds the rest of the Cruze family to a high standard, and all the models live up to it. Standard 6-speed transmissions, like the manual in Cruze LS, help offer 36 MPG highway5. Then there’s the 6-speed automatic transmission available on LT and standard on LTZ, with the 1.4L turbocharged engine—a performance increase that helps Cruze offer 38 MPG highway5.

Tested worldwide, just for you: The Cruze blueprint chose solutions over sacrifices and was fine-tuned in testing all over the world. Cruze proved itself in some hostile environments: continuous driving in the heat of the Arabian Desert, high altitude in the Alps, intense moisture in Thailand, and more. Then it was put through its paces on some of the best test tracks in the world, including the famed Nürburgring in Germany, a beastly track and proving grounds generally reserved for high-performance or track-ready vehicles.

Cruze is one of the most tested vehicles in Chevrolet history, and that’s why we guarantee its quality with a 100,000-mile/5-year transferable Powertrain Limited Warranty.

Technology: From to-do list to to-done list, the 2012 Cruze offers up an extensive array of technology features to give you more conveniences throughout your day. Cruze has the latest in mobile technology and safety with the help of OnStar®, standard for the first six months8. And let’s face it, you want to enjoy every moment, even when driving. That’s why Cruze has an Infotainment system, equipping you with the latest entertainment features such as an available touch-screen navigation9 radio with Turn-by-Turn Navigation8, so you can do just that.

Turn-by-Turn Navigation: Being lost is a thing of the past. With OnStar®, someone who can help is right there with just the touch of a blue button. Be connected to a friendly OnStar® representative within seconds, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, through the button on your rearview mirror. Tell them where you need to go and they’ll find the directions for you, and you can keep your hands on the steering wheel. Turn-by-turn directions are then sent to your Cruze through the Driver’s Information Center in the gauge cluster, or they can be sent through the available touch-screen navigation9 radio. You can even opt to hear directions and prompts from an automated voice. Take a wrong turn or want a different route? The system updates moment to moment from wherever you are, always keeping you on track to your destination. OnStar® services are standard for the first six months.
Fuel Efficiency: Get MMPG: More miles per gallon Cruze takes you farther for less. With an incredible 42 MPG highway5, advanced aerodynamics and its 1.4L turbocharged engine, Cruze Eco gives you more fuel efficiency without asking you to skimp on performance. And at 42 MPG highway, Cruze Eco offers the best highway fuel efficiency of any gas engine in America5. That’s better highway fuel efficiency than the 2012 Ford Focus sedan, 2012 Hyundai Elantra and the 2011 Toyota Corolla16. That’s what happens when Chevrolet engineers approach every inch of a vehicle to improve its efficiency—it rises above the rest.

Protection is great—prevention is better. It’s our philosophy, and one that has earned Cruze high vehicle safety ratings and accolades. The 2011 Cruze was an IIHS Top Safety Pick17 and received a 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)18. Simply put, it’s our “more” approach to safety.
Before: That’s why we’ve equipped Cruze with numerous safety features, including the StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control. On slippery surfaces, StabiliTrak helps you stay the course by detecting the difference between the path being steered and the direction the vehicle is actually traveling. It then uses the brakes and, if necessary, adjusts engine torque to help keep your Cruze on track.
During: Cruze protects with best-in-class 10 standard air bags4 including frontal side-impact and knee air bags for the driver and front passenger, and a high-strength steel safety cage and roof crush resistance that outperform the requirements.
After: Crucial information is sent to the OnStar® command center via the OnStar® Automatic Crash Response system8. There, trained Advisors utilize GPS technology to pinpoint your location and can request help be sent right away—even if you’re unable to respond. It’s part of OnStar® Directions & Connections®8, standard for six months.

Making Strides in October

Pine Belt Chevrolet Joins Chevrolet Dealers Nationwide to Fight Breast Cancer!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Chevrolet Dealers nationwide are celebrating the brand’s 100th birthday by joining with the American Cancer Society to help create a world with Less Cancer, a world with More Birthdays.

Pine Belt Chevrolet of Eatontown is proud to join Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Pine Belt employees have joined the team and will participate in the Making Strides walk in Point Pleasant Beach on October 16th and will be asking their friends and family to help support this effort by making online donations to the American Cancer Society –  Donate Today

Breast Cancer is expected to take the lives of nearly 40,000 women in 2011 and nearly a quarter of a million new cases are estimated to be found.  Even men can get breast cancer. While far less common than for women, more than 2000 men are diagnosed each year with breast cancer. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer helps support the American Cancer Society and its efforts to find better treatments, earlier diagnoses, and programs to support Breast Cancer survivors and their families.

Chevrolet is joining the Society to help support Making Strides and the American Cancer Society. As part of its 100th Birthday Celebration Chevrolet will be offering special programs and discounts, including service rebates, which we will encourage customers to donate the American Cancer Society.

No one is untouched by cancer and Breast Cancer in particular. We all know someone who has lost a loved one to Breast Cancer. Early diagnosis and early treatment can help survival rates. Scientists and doctors continue to find new ways to fight these diseases and more and more women are surviving, but so much work remains.  We at Pine Belt wholeheartedly support the American Cancer Society and ask you to help too! Support the American Cancer Society and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. For 100 years Chevrolet has been part of life’s journeys – even the detours.  With your help we can all find a smoother road for those people who have heard the words “You Have Breast Cancer”.

Pine Belt Chevy Volt: It’s the Car of the Year


It’s just one of the many good things Motor Trend magazine had to say about Chevrolet Volt when it was named “2011 Motor Trend Car of the Year®.” The annual award is one of the most prestigious honors bestowed in the auto industry and further proof that it’s a new day for Chevrolet, not to mention the entire auto industry. Powered by electricity without being tethered to electrical outlets, the Volt does everything a great car does and, according toMotor Trend, better than any other. It’s further proof that today, tomorrow and on into the future, Chevy Runs Deep. Available to order at participating dealers. Quantities limited.

“Based on my recent test-drive, the Volt is up to the job. It’s fun to drive, practical, good-looking and in a league of its own technically. The sleek compact accelerates briskly. Its handling is responsive and sporty. The interior provides plenty of space and comfort for four adults.”–Detroit Free Press


Thoughtful efficiency

By its very nature, Volt is engineered to change the face of transportation as we know it. Nearly every component of Volt has been selected to get the most out of every charge, including:

  • Aerodynamics that maximize the distance per charge and miles per gallon of fuel
  • A closed grille and aerodynamic back edges that contribute to its fuel efficiency(3)
  • Energy-efficient Bose® Sound System
  • Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max tires

The dashboard reimagined

Volt has two LCD screens that display speed, battery power, range to recharge or re-fill as well as an efficiency gauge that gives you real-time feedback. On the center console you’ll find a seven-inch diagonal high-resolution screen with touch-sensitive control that helps you get the most out of your Volt.


Power from an exceptional battery

The Volt battery has gone through numerous environment-specific tests, including corrosion and hot- and cold-weather testing and the results were so promising that the 16-kWh lithium-ion battery pack is backed by an 100,000-mile/8-year limited warranty(4).
Here are a few more notes on the battery:

  • Volt offers an EPA-estimated 35 miles of initial EV range offering a gas-free and tailpipe emissions-free commute for about $1.50 of electricity per day
  • When the battery is depleted, a small, quiet onboard gas generator creates electricity that powers your Volt as you drive for hundreds of additional miles
  • Lithium-ion cells outperform nickel-metal hydride cells (found in today’s hybrid vehicles) in terms of life cycle
  • A liquid thermal cooling and heating system keeps the battery at a comfortable temperature as it’s being charged and discharged
Here are a few more advantages
  • Commute gas-free on electricity(3) for an average of $1.50 a day
  • Can be set to charge during off-peak hours for greater savings
  • Your Volt will be fully charged in about 10 hours, depending on climate, with standard 120-volt line, or as little as 4 hours using a dedicated 240-volt line
  • Some Volt owners may qualify for tax rebates on anSPX Service Solutions – installed charging unit
Innovation everywhere

Volt offers the performance and forward-thinking you’ve come to expect from Chevrolet. Take a look:

  • Instant, smooth and seamless torque right at the wheels
  • Regenerative braking captures the energy from forward motion that would otherwise be lost when the car slows or stops and then converts it into electricity, helping make Volt even more efficient to drive
  • On the test track, Volt reached a top speed of 100 mph
  • Free of the typical noise of the internal combustion engine, Volt offers a quiet, relaxing ride at any speed


Making the future safer

Volt drivers and passengers will be wrapped in a cocoon of standard safety. With eight air bags(5) ready to deploy in an emergency, it’s obvious safety is of the highest priority. Joining this built-in safety is an unprecedented five-year subscription to OnStar®(6) Directions and Connections® including Automatic Crash Response. In the event of a collision, built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar Advisor, who is immediately connected into your vehicle to see if you need help sent to your exact location – even if you can’t respond.


Pick your mode

The Volt has been programmed with three unique driving modes to accommodate different driving styles. Normal mode is the most efficient setting that takes the electricity and focuses it on operating the electric drive. Sport mode sacrifices a small amount of efficiency for more responsive acceleration, and Mountain mode makes sure the battery has a bigger energy reserve for driving up long, steep inclines.

Volt mobile app

Anywhere you get a signal on your smartphone, you can have control of your Volt. Tap away and, with the OnStar RemoteLink®(7) mobile app, you’ll be able to check the battery charge level, available range, tire pressure, remote lock and unlock, and even activate the remote start to heat or cool the interior to your preferred temperature. Navigate the interactive screens of the app, and you can change how and when you want your Volt to charge. You can even set up alerts via text or email to remind you to plug in your Volt, when charging is complete or if charging has been interrupted. The app also provides a single button to access a Volt Customer Advisor who can answer vehicle-specific questions.
