The Chevrolet Cobalt
is due to replace the Chevrolet Cavalier
in the Fall of 2004. The Cobalt seems to be pitted against some of the Japanese
makers to help General Motors
get back some of the lost market-share
. Over the past few years Honda
and other manufacturers have outpriced the American car manufacturers
. Chevrolet is hoping that the Cobalt is the answer to their problems.
The Cobalt will come with a 2.2L, 2.4L, or a 2.0L engine, the latter equipped with a supercharger
. Seating 4, this 2 or 4-door sedan
seems to appeal to the practical, mid-20's market. For the buyers who have some more money
, the awesome XM Satellite Radio
will be an option. If you don't like listening to radio
at all, you can get a CD
player. GM's OnStar
system is also an option if you are worried about road service.
The Cobalt will come in numerous colors, including Stealth Gray and Victory Red.
It is still too early to see the final color list or price, as Chevrolet hasn't released them yet.
