Report: Chevy Cruze Diesel Coming to America?

Diesel

Sources at GM have revealed plans to bring the diesel powered Chevy Cruze to the U.S.

Sources at General Motors have revealed that the company has decided to sell a diesel version of the Chevrolet Cruze in the U.S. Due to stricter government fuel economy standards, the Cruze would average 50mpg and help Chevy meet those expectations. The same 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel found in the Cruze in other markets like Australia and Europe is expected to be the same model brought to the States, just tuned a bit to meet the stricter emissions laws.

In addition to the 50mpg average, the 2.0-liter diesel can make 147hp and 235 lb-ft of torque. The diesel powered Chevrolet Cruze is expected to land in the U.S. in 2013. Pricing is expected to run a few grand above the current Cruze model, MSRP from $16,525.
