Chevy is making news yet again.
This time it’s the debut of a Chevy Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel, a fuel efficient yet powerful car that is looking to buck the image of diesel engines. The diesel Cruse was first shown at the Chicago Auto show in February.
Chevrolet is establishing itself as the first US automaker to offer a clean diesel compact car. Although diesel engines take up a major portion of cars in Europe and elsewhere, diesel cars have been almost non-existent on American roads.
Diesel Cruze Coming to America
There are many reasons to believe that the diesel Chevy Cruze will be popular. With higher gas prices, a diesel engine’s fuel efficiency could change the mind of many American drivers. A Jeep Grand Cherokee was recently unveiled, and more diesel cars and SUVs could on the horizon.
The new diesel Cruse will be sporty and quick, but most importantly, it will be clean. The fuel consumption of the new Cruze is expected to reach 42 mpg on the highway with extremely low emissions, making it the first clean diesel to be offered by a US automaker.
Take a closer look at the Cruze diesel features:
- 2.0L four cylinder diesel
- 42 mpg highway
- 600 miles of range
- 285 lb-ft of low-end torque
- 148 horsepower
- 0-60 in 8.6 seconds
The Cruze is expected to be the cleanest running diesel offered by GM. It will be able to meet the most stringent emissions standards while maintaining power and performance.
The car is expected to change the way American shoppers look at diesel engines, often perceived as dirty, noisy, and rough. When people start driving the new 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel, the folks at Chevrolet are confident that those perceptions will change.
