Chevy Cruze Diesel Aiming for 50 MPG

Chevy Cruze Diesel Aiming for 50 MPG

Since the official announcement that a diesel-powered Chevy Cruze was coming to the U.S. we have not heard a lot about it other than it won’t be available until 2013. Now we’re starting to hear some very exciting news from GM insiders who are saying that the Chevy Cruze diesel will get 50 MPG.

Additionally, it’s rumored that, unlike the Chevy Cruze Eco, the diesel version will have just as impressive mileage with an automatic transmission as it does with a manual transmission.

The Chevy Cruze diesel engine has been confirmed to be based on the 2.0-liter that’s used in the Holden Zruze CDX which offers 160 HP and 265 pound-feet of torque which will give it more zip than the Cruze Eco.
