The Premier trim is front-wheel drive like all other Cruze trims and it shares the same engine as all other Cruze trims except the diesel. When it comes to the engine, you will have a 1.4-liter turbocharged ECOTEC® at your disposal. It provides 153 horsepower, 177 pound-feet of torque, and up to 39-highway mpg on the Premier trim.

The Premier trim level does limit you when it comes to transmission options though. The L trim comes as a manual, and up from there every other trim gives you the option between either a manual or an automatic until you get to the Premier trim which is only offered with an automatic.
