Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Boasts Best Highway Fuel Economy of Any Non-Hybrid Passenger Car in America

Jeff Gordon Chevrolet announced recently that the new 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel will deliver an industry best EPA-estimated 46 MPG on the highway. It will be available at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet in Wilmington, North Carolina and there will be Cruze Diesel models available to color and option to your personal specifications.

The Cruze Diesel will be equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission and have an estimated range of 700 highway miles on one tank of diesel fuel based on the EPA highway estimates.

"We harnessed generations of diesel expertise to adapt our world-class global engine for the North American market," said Gary Altman, chief engineer, Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. "The Cruze Diesel is the best diesel passenger car out there. Chevrolet is redefining the meaning of great fuel economy with this car."

The 2014 Cruze Clean TurboDiesel will be powered by the cleanest diesel passenger car engine produced by General Motors. The vehicle generates 90 percent less Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and particulate emissions when compared to previous-generation diesels.

The Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel's starting price of $25,695, clearly defines the Cruze Diesel as a better value than a similarly equipped VW Jetta TDI automatic. Compared with Jetta, the 2014 Cruze Diesel offers more standard equipment including the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, larger 17-inch alloy wheels, leather-appointed seating, a longer five-year 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, and a two-year maintenance plan.

The 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel also beats its rivals in performance with a segment-leading estimated 148 horsepower (110 kW) and estimated 258 lb-ft of torque (350 Nm), and can go 0-60 in about 8.6 seconds. Its advanced 2.0L turbo-diesel engine has an overboost feature capable of increasing torque to an estimated 280 lb-ft (380 Nm) for stronger acceleration when needed, such as entering freeway traffic.

Chevrolet has sold more than 2 million Cruze models globally since it was launched in mid-2010. More than 33,000 of those were diesel powered.
