    No mention at all it appears of the 2.5, not even on the Malibu and Verano pages....are there more changed to that engine that GM doesn't want to release info on?

    Also, was looking forward to some new colors on the Sonic. In the past, they had all kinds of bright and different colors on subcompacts, but nothing like that was available on the 2012.

    Looks like Imperial Blue has been axed across the board from Chevrolet and Buick too. But it's nice to see some new blues being offered.

    Stronger lineup than years past but the Cruze needed some of the AUS updates....they missed the ball on that one.

    Hopefully there will be something of a 2013.5 model-year for the Chevrolet SS/Commodore.

    Re: Meet Your 2013 Chevrolet Car Lineup

    Truth is the Cruze is not at all outdated in any way and if they rush the refresh it would probably get outdated faster so it makes sense why GM is waiting another year. (after all its not even been on the market 2 years yet)

    Re: Meet Your 2013 Chevrolet Car Lineup

    I've observed complaints on the Chrysler and Nissan forums that it takes too long for new model specs to be distributed - and have said "Why can't they be as timely as GM?". People want to plan for their vehicle purchases, it's a serious enough investment. They don't like being toyed with and waiting until July or August to know what the features will be next year. I think GM deserves some credit for distributing (or leaking) this information in April.
