Chevrolet Introduces the 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show

Chevrolet introduced its first domestic diesel car in nearly 30 years during the Chicago Auto Show Media Preview: the all-new 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel. The 2014 hits showrooms this summer, and, according to General Motors, will be the cleanest diesel passenger car GM has ever produced. Preliminary numbers indicate that Cruze Diesel will obtain an estimated 42 mpg highway EPA rating.

"The Cruze is the cleanest diesel car we've ever built and offers an over boost feature that allows 10 seconds of additional boost for better acceleration," said Cristi Landy, marketing director, Chevrolet small cars. "This gives it the small-car look with the fast-car speed."

Landy compared the Cruze Turbo Diesel to the Volkswagen Jetta, but stated that "it is a well-contented vehicle, and we feel that it is competitive and a value versus the Jetta." Moreover, General Motors' decision to bring the Cruze Diesel to the U.S. will create more choices for consumers searching for diesel vehicles that don't come at a premium price.

The Cruze Diesel sports a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that's rated at an estimated 148 horsepower and should provide a 0 to 60 mph time of about 6.8 seconds. The engine uses an onboard urea injection system and a particulate filter to keep emissions clean. One urea tank will last about 10,000 miles, so owners don't have to sweat too much about running out.

With an estimated base price of $25,696, including an $810 destination charge, the Cruze Diesel comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, 17-inch alloy wheels, rear spoiler and leather-appointed seats.
