General Motors is planning to expand the widely popular Chevrolet Cruze in the U.S. by adding a diesel engine, which will rival the Toyota Prius gas-electric hybrid’s fuel consumption.

The diesel Cruze is expected to receive 50 miles per gallon on the highway and will help GM meet tightening government fuel economy standards. Chevrolet already has a diesel-engine Cruze that’s selling well in Australia, but it will not hit showrooms in the U.S. until at least 2013

As the U.S.’s top-selling car, Dave Sullivan, an analyst with AutoPacific commented, “I couldn’t think of a better way for GM to capitalize on the momentum that Cruze has created for GM by adding a diesel.” While diesel engines are slightly more expensive initial, American auto consumers are starting to see the benefits of these fuel efficient cars.

The current Chevrolet Cruze has an unbeatable combination of style and fuel efficiency, all while being an incredible value. Powered by a 1.4-liter turbo charged engine, the 2011 Cruze receives an EPA estimated 26 mpg city and 36 mpg highway. The Cruze is also quiet, full of high-tech goodies and has a Euro-inspired styling flare.
