Meet the LUJ

GMTunerSource.com - LUJ Delivers on ECOtec Promise

Personally... I'm NOT impressed! It's not supposed to be a performance car by any means, but at least give it the 2.2...

with the new 6 speed trans, that extra 100hp of the lnf, should yield 40 - 50 mpg on the highway... GM's designers don't understand what hot rodders from the past 40 years have known. Build an incredibly powerful motor, and make the final gear in the trans a strictly highway gear. You can pull only 1500 rpm at 70mph if you have the right gear, not 3,000 rpm. Low rpm and high speeds means great fuel economy...

X3 to that notion..

Put a 6 liter Vette in 6th at 60, and you got 30mpg...

Do that with an LNF with an extremely tall ratio on the last gear, you've got 45+mpg...

I am sure it will be laughed at if it were to show up at the drag races.... But that is not what this car is being built for. If you are going to down it for power maybe you all should wait to see the SS, if there is one.

exacto - i don't like the high rpms when just going 70mph on the balt already - can't imagine what the cruze will be like w/ that engine and bigger body
