Chevrolet starts selling diesel Cruze in U.S.

General Motors Co.’s Chevrolet brand confirmed last month in May that it has started selling its first diesel passenger car in the U.S. since 1986 with its 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel.

Available for $25,695, the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel offers a segment-leading 46 mpg highway, and can go 717 miles on one tank of diesel fuel.

Chevrolet Vice President of Marketing, Chris Perry, has stated that GM has sold a few Cruze diesels, which first are being sold in 13 metro markets selected for having a high diesel penetration. The vehicles will be available nationally in the fall 2013!

There is a growth in popularity for diesel technology in the U.S.  The Cruze diesel is powered by a 2-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine, has peak torque of 264 foot-pounds, and is certified at 151 horsepower, with more standard features.

“From a packaging standpoint what we offer in our vehicles, we think is a much more superior product,” Perry said. “As mentioned earlier, people getting into this marketplace are mostly concerned about performance and fuel economy. If you look at our numbers there, the Chevrolet clean turbo diesel offers better horsepower, better torque, more miles on tank of fuel, over 700 miles on tank of fuel. And the best news is we have achieved 46 miles per gallon highway.”

The Cruze diesel starts at $25,695.

The exterior and interior have been changed to meet the needs of our customers. For the interior, we created greater rear-seat space and great comfort, by redesigning the seats to meet your comfort. The front seatbacks are shaped to improve rear-seat knee room, while new cushion sculpturing and revised cushion material allows passengers to sit deeper in the rear seats.

The front-end appearance of the 2014 Malibu is influenced by the brand new Impala, creating a more cohesive look across Chevrolet’s sedan lineup.
