The new Chevrolet Cruze 2014 is scheduled to come into markets by summer 2013 with a turbocharged 2.0 liter diesel four cylinder engine offering 148 hp and 258 lb/ft torque. The vehicle will be able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 8.6 seconds.
The engine will be mated to a six speed automatic transmission as it enters markets to compete with the likes of VW Jetta TDI and Chevrolet’s own Cruze Eco. Cruze will sport the cleanest diesel powered passenger car engine from General Motors. The engine built in Lordstown, Ohio will display class leading features and higher level of efficiency while offering 42 mpg on the highway.
Starting at a price of $25,695 including $810 destination charges, Chevrolet Cruze diesel will be offered with four wheel antilock disc brakes, 3.20 drive ratio, 140 amp alternator and 800 amps battery. The vehicle will sport 17” alloy wheels with all weather tyres along with an Aero Performance Package and plush leather upholstered seats.
