The available transmission ditches the clutch pedal on the entry-level SL trim level, which is priced at $26,499. The automatically shifting transmission uses identical ratios as the five-speed manual, only with a hydraulically actuated cog swaps. The new starter model gets a higher-revving 2.0-liter, 180 hp Prostar engine (replacing the 2.4-liter Ecotec powerplant). The base engine now revs to nearly motorcycle-like 8,500 rpm (as opposed to its 7,200 rpm predecessor), and produces 120 pound-feet of torque. Bundled into the package is a back-up camera, 100-watt Rockford Fosgate sound system, and cast aluminum 18-inch/20-inch wheels. Standard driver aids include speed sensitive power steering assist, traction control, stability control, and ABS.
