What year was the first Chevrolet Cobalt LS released?

I have a really nice Chevrolet Cobalt LS from 2006 and I think that makes it one of the first releases! My friend said that this could add value to the car if it’s true, but I don’t really know if it is. In which year was the very first Chevrolet Cobalt LS released?

The first Chevrolet Cobalt LS was released in 2004, so a 2006 model is not from the first year of production. But even if the car was a few years older, the Cobalt doesn’t have much value for collectors.
When the Cobalt was first released in 2004, it became fairly popular as a daily driver—a car meant for professional commuters. But over the next few years, the Cobalt quickly fell behind competitors like the Toyota Corolla and Ford Focus.
That’s why Chevrolet decided to replace the Cobalt with the Cruze in 2011. The Chevrolet Cruze was a complete redesign of everything they’d been doing with the Cobalt. The exterior aesthetic was smoother and more polished, and the interior was more spacious and comfortable.
The Cruze’s reliability and maintenance costs were also much better than the Cobalt’s. That said, there aren’t many buyers on the lookout for a Cobalt. Of course, the Cobalt is still a fun and reliable car. To make sure yours holds out for as long as possible, make sure you have the car insurance coverage you need with Jerry.
