General Motors has just unveiled the Tru 140S Concept at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, the second of it's youth-oriented concepts. Spiritual sibling to the Code 130S Concept, the Tru 140S is designed to bring exotic styling to the compact segment. Based on the bones of the Chevrolet Cruze, the vehicle comes equipped with the same 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, though with a bit more power. The vehicle puts 150 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels via either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Like the Cruze, GM says a production version of the Tru 140S Concept could be capable of up to 40 mpg highway.

Like it's rear-wheeldrive twin, the Tru 140S Concept would carry an MSRP of around $25,000 were it to go into production. And how likely is that to happen? GM has made it clear it intends to offer a more stylish, evocative compact vehicle in the near future. Given the fact that the Tru 140S rides on the Cruze platform, there's a good chance we may see something like it roll out of GM in a few years. Consider our fingers crossed. Hit the jump for the full press release.

Side looks very very exaggerated from a G6. Not bad but $25k for a car with less than 200hp, no matter the weight, doesn't appeal to me.

I'm set in my ways and want my HP/torque!!

Jedi, I remember you posting those pics a while ago. You're right, looks like GM still likes the concept. ;)
