As a follow-up, I agree they need to offer non-chrome options and better wheels.

What I disagree is a Chevrolet is cheap for the segment it is in. Maybe you are still thinking about a decade ago. I had the opportunity to own a Cruze Eco 6 speed for 6 months for long distance driving, not only did it get around 45 mpg in 70% highway miles, it was very rich in details, fun to drive for the segment, miles ahead of a new Nissan Sentra my company offered. As an example, the 6 spd shifter in the Cruze Eco was better looking than those I saw in the BMWs.

The most shocking to me was how cheap that Nissan Sentra looked and drove. Although I understand they have a new version now.

As far as cutting edge design, the Cadillac CUE is way out there, so much so it could backfire, at least with their old driver base.
