A New Diesel!Dec 9th, 2013
Chevrolet Canada has introduced the new Chevrolet Cruze Diesel, a brand-new diesel version of the popular, fuel-efficient Cruze.
Under the Hood
Best of all, Cruze diesel offers the perfect combination of both power and efficiency. It offers the power of a V6 engine with the fuel efficiency of an inline-four. With a powerful 2.0L turbodiesel engine producing 151hp and 264lb-ft of torque, Cruze diesel produces 11hp and 28lb-ft MORE than Volkswagen Jetta TDI!
Plus, Cruze Diesel can return 7.5L/100km city (38 mpg) and 4.2L/100km (67 mpg) highway, which means less time spent at the pump and more time getting where you need to be. It also means Cruze Diesel returns the best highway fuel efficiency
of any gasoline or diesel car in Canada.
Visually, Cruze diesel is almost identical to its gas-powered brother. However, it does feature some unique elements. Firstly, Cruze diesel features black slats behind the front grill. These slats close at high-speeds to increase fuel efficiency.
Secondly, Cruze features unique wheels, tires, and badging. Ultra efficient tires with low-rolling resistance are wrapped around new, five-spoke wheels. A small, discrete green badge on the rear decklid makes it to clear this is no ordinary Cruze.
No Noise Here
Let’s face it- diesel engines have a reputation for being loud and noisy. However, Cruze Diesel features exhaust gas recirculation, selective catalyst reduction, a particulate filter and advanced fuel systems components. That means Cruze has been designed to reduce the noise and vibration often association with earlier generation diesel vehicles. It’s a whole new diesel experience, from Chevrolet.
