Billed as "The finest compact car GM has ever made" the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze began rolling off the assembly line in Lordstown, Ohio yesterday.

The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze is a pivotal model for Chevrolet as the brand continues to build sales momentum. “The rebirth of the U.S. economy starts in Lordstown, Ohio with the Chevrolet Cruze,” General Motors North America President Mark Reuss told an assembly at the production facility.

What Reuss also might have said is that the Cruze will be a rebirth of Chevrolet's marketing. While its new products have generally received good reviews in the motoring press, its Chevrolet's marketing efforts have stumbled.

2011 Chevrolet Cruze Will Herald New Marketing Push

Chevrolet has dumped its longtime advertising agency and gone through a string of managers at the helm of its operations with the most recent appointment occurring just several weeks ago when Jim Campbell, on the job since last December, was replaced by Chris Perry. Chevrolet also announced recently that comedian Tim Allen as the voice of the brand. You can see the first Cruze commercial "New Kid" featuring Tim Allen in the video embedded with this article.

For Huliq's take on the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze, you can read this article or watch this video segment. The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze will start at $16,995.
