Chevy Looks South For More 2016 Cruze Models As Demand Goes North of Domestic Supply
While the company has clearly put its best efforts into the new 2016 Cruze as part of a big recent push of fresh, innovative compact car designs, it’s become apparent that Chevrolet didn’t quite anticipate the kind of interest that the sporty, tech-savvy young entry is creating among interested buyers of all kinds. With demand skyrocketing beyond the availability of Cruze models being sent out from Chevrolet’s manufacturing plant in Lordstown, Ohio, the company is moving fast to find an ideal means of providing the extra stock that excited drivers are calling for. With so much to offer in such a well-organized and affordable package, it’s no surprise to us that the popularity of the 2016 Cruze has taken even its creators off guard!
Comprising a capable trio of new compacts designed to meet the needs of a new era, the Cruze recently arrived along with the smaller Chevy Sonic and the fully sub-compact Chevy Spark to present an impressively updated vision of Chevrolet’s longstanding affinity for considerately designed, affordable compact cars. While the Sonic and Spark both succeed at focusing on very specific approaches to modern accommodation, the Cruze hedges its bets across a wide array of Chevy’s current technologies in a stylishly updated but still relatively more traditional package. Considering its place in the current lineup, it’s no wonder that Chevy wasn’t taken by surprise quite enough to be left without a good contingency plan for just such an occasion.
In finding even more success with the Cruze than initially planned, the company now looks to its plants in Mexico to provide the extra stock needed to satisfy dealerships. Though it may come as a controversial decision to some, it only makes sense in approaching the extra demand that’s already been demonstrated by eager buyers. With production already maxed out in Lordstown to the point that summer shutdowns have been cancelled entirely, there’s nothing to gain but more sales for domestic dealers, as well as some extra financial resources for future expansion of production on U.S. soil.
Leading this charge into a new phase of Chevy’s evolution, the Cruze makes for a perfect synthesis of all the things that are still keeping the company at the front of the compact vehicle pack. When we take a short moment to remind folks of all that it has to offer, it becomes clear that the Cruze has got more than what it takes to leave industry trends and sales expectations reeling in its nimble wake. In the end, we think this little bump in the road stands as nothing but an acknowledgment of the Cruze’s remarkable, multifaceted character.
With a host of buzzed-about technological accommodations, a dedication to efficiency that makes it an economical force to be reckoned with, as well as all of the familiar, considerate details that make Chevy a longtime, trusted name in the world of compact sedans, we’ll be happy to welcome as many extra Cruze models as possible to our showroom here at Apple Chevy soon. As always, we’ll be even happier to help you get to know a 2016 Chevrolet Cruze whenever you’re ready to find out what all the fuss is about!
