    how much does a cobalt Sedan weigh?

    So I was looking through the cobalt sedan SS thread, and it lists the car as 3200 lbs... which, strangely enough, is how much a saturn Vue weighs. But the Chevy site also list's the cobalt sedan as 3200 lbs. Now, the part that loses me is that the GMpowertrain site lists a base sedan at 2800 lbs. So what's the correct weight?

    3200lbs is almost as heavy as the G6. It must be 2800.

    They must be rather heavy considering that mag comparos have been done and their 0-60 time is really not impressive. Alot of newer small cars are ALOT heavier, that's the one thing that keeps the Civic up on the performance scale, even though it has 127 with Vtec it's one of the lightest in class. The newer Aerio (sx) weighs about 2750, my sedan I think, last time I checked weighed a little over 2550. Even though the newer one has the 2.3 it's heaver and gearing is a little longer which makes mine almost as fast.

    2991lbs curb for a manual cobalt, you can add an average of about 35 lbs for an automatic trans.

    Superchargers add in the neighboorhood of 60 lbs - so the true curb weight for the cobalt SS is prolly in 3050 range, give or take.

    My brochure has the following weights for the sedan (in lbs). The LT is automatic only so I presume the base and LS weights are with a stick shife.

    Base - 2789
    LS - 2849
    LT - 2908
