Rumored: 2014 Chevy Cruze MCE

Chevy Cruze MCE?
Personal File: Lot's of recent rumblings online of the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze getting a 'rush job' MCE to visually align it with the new Impala and upcoming SS sedan designs. GMInsideNews and a few other outlets have released renderings that tease of what that could look like in various forms.

I was surprised to see this as I had been dabbling with something like it just for fun myself back in June. Never having liked the Cruze visually, I was exploring what could be done to update it and 'bridge the visual gap' between the two very differently designed 2013 Malibu and the future 2014 Impala sedans. My rendering combined aspects of both vehicles into a clean and sharp MCE.

Coming back to this chop again after the rumors started surfacing, I wanted to put a little more polish on the rendering. Here is a list of what has been done to a 2012 RS Cruze:
  • revised c-pillar
  • new wheels from Malibu
  • hood and headlights and grille from Impala heavily brushed
  • lower fascia heavily modified from Malibu heavily brushed
  • reworked tail light shape

What do you think? Will GM will do something like this or are all the rumors just that - bunk?
