I hope you are wrong. I think the Cruze's is a little goofy. The cross bar is too high and the hood is cut into. The Volt is much sleeker.That's cool! Not sure the Volt is part of the evolution though... I suspect that it will be a one-off, and that other Chevrolets will continue along the Cruze theme.
Its the edginess he is referring to though right? The headlights that kinda stretch across to the side and swoop back towards the windshield. That theme pretty much started with the Avalanche.The Avalanche was just a more edgy version of the Chevy Truck theme of the split grille seen on the C/K 1500 for a number of years. It was also on the S-10 and later Colorado.
And even that was a continuation of the theme started even earlier.
I think the Venture was the first to bring it out of the trucks onto the cars in the modern era and then the Impala had a version of it, sort of. The Malibu is the epitome on the cars and the Tahoe is just wonderful looking. But the current Silverado and the upcoming Cruze screw it up, I think.
Yeah, through the '80s and part of the '90s it was hard to have a split headlight grille on the trucks since everything had the same headlights! Was that like a federal mandate that there was only like 2 or 3 sizes of bulbs during that time? I mean nobody had anything different. Or was it some sort of gentleman's agreement that everyone would adhere to a standard? I know there was two sizes for sure, maybe a third, but that was it! Weird
