Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Premieres in Chicago

Reveal / Comments

Instead of going hybrid, Chevrolet has opted to go with a turbo diesel engine option for its popular Cruze.

For those looking to get plenty of MPG out of their cars but aren't wild about buying a hybrid, clean-burning diesel models provide a solid alternative. Thing is, there aren't many available in the US market, especially at an affordable price. Chevrolet is looking to change all of that with the diesel-powered Cruze. Making its official debut this weekend at the Chicago Auto Show, the Chevy Cruze diesel comes powered by a 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine that produces 148 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

It's mated exclusively to a six-speed automatic slushbox and GM is claiming the Cruze diesel will go from 0-60 mph in 8.6 seconds and will return a best-in-class 42 mph. Set to go on sale this summer, it'll be priced at $25,695. This includes an aero performance package, low rolling resistance tires, leather seats, GM's MyLink infotainment system and a two-year service plan.
