Chevrolet Debuts 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel

•Turbocharging helps deliver §egmènt-leading 148 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque wîth estimated 42 mpg highway
•$25,695 MSRP includes destination and two-year maintenance plan

Chevrolet is entering the Ú.S. and Canadian diesel car markets this summer wîth a 2.0L turbo-diesel version of its hottest-selling sedan, the Cruze, featuring the cleanest diesel passenger car engine General Motors has ever produced.

Clean diesels generate at least 90 percent less Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and particulate emissions when compared to previous-generation diesels.

Built in Lordstown, Ohio, the 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel delivers a combination of §egmènt-leading features and efficiency. Based on GM testing, the Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel has demonstrated estimated best-in-§egmènt range and 42 mpg on the highway wîth spirited performance and the durability diesel owners value around the globe.

'Chevrolet has a diverse portfolio of products and technologies to meet the needs of the most discerning customer, whether it's driving across town gas free in a Spark EV or cross-country in a clean turbo diesel,' said Chris Perry, Chevrolet vice president of marketing.

The compact sedan's new 2.0L turbo-diesel engine produces §egmènt-leading estimated 148 horsepower (110 kW) and estimated 258 lb-ft torque (350 Nm) wîth 0-60 performance of 8.6 seconds, which is better than the Volkswagen Jetta TDI automatic and competitive wîth German diesel cars that dominate the Ú.S. market.

Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel's emissions will be below stringent Ú.S. environmental standards including Tier 2 Bin 5 emissions standards. ( posted on conceptcarz.com)

'Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel fills an important role in Chevrolet's diverse four-cylinder lineup, and is primed to win over diesel devotees and compact car buyers wîth its performance, torque and fuel economy,' said Perry. 'We leveraged engineering expertise from around the globe to develop a world-class, low-emissions engine to give Ú.S. and Canadian customers a car that's both fun to drive and practical at the pump.'

With a starting price at $25,695, including a $810 destination charge (excludes tax, title, license, and dealer fees) Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel comes wîth a six-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, 3.20 final drive ratio, 140-amp alternator, 800 cold-cranking amps battery, 17-inch alloy wheels, ultra-low-rolling resistance all-season tires, rear spoiler, Aero Performance Package and leather-appointed seating.

Other standard features include Chevrolet's infotainment system MyLink, a two-year maintenance plan, and a five-year 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.

'Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel is the most sophisticated passenger car diesel engine GM has ever produced,' said Jens Wartha, GM global program manager and chief engineer for the Cruze's diesel engine. 'We merged European diesel expertise wîth the real world driving preferences of North American consumers.'

GM has sold nearly 2 million Chevrolet Cruze models globally since it was launched in mid-2010. GM produced more than half a million small diesel-engine cars across Europe, Asia, Africa and South America last year, including Cruze. In Europe, approximately 40 percent of Cruze models are diesel-powered.
