Chevrolet is introducing a new diesel variant of its Chevrolet Cruze for the 2014 model year. The Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel will come with a 2.0l turbocharged engine, which delivers 148 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.
With a lot of power available, the Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel still is able to deliver 42 mpg on the highway. The Cruze’s new engine is also billed as the cleanest diesel engine ever produced by General Motors, with 90 percent less Nitrogen Oxide and particulate emissions than previous generation diesel engines.
Chevrolet has not mentioned the distance per tank. The new Cruze will also include the MyLink infotainment system, which is based on GM’s IntelLink system. Other cool features include a six-speed automatic, 17-inch alloy wheels and all-season tires.
Performance-wise, the new Chevy Cruze’s 2.0l turbo-diesel engine is able to hit 0-60 mph in 8.6 seconds. This baby will launch with an MSRP of $25,695, but the company has yet to reveal a release date in the U.S.
