Diesel cars don’t have a huge following in the American auto market, but the diesel variant of Chevy’s popular Cruze compact has begun to change that. The 2015 Chevy Cruze Diesel won’t be radically different from the previous year’s model, but it will likely make it an even more appealing buy with added features and options.
A Different Kind of Diesel Engine
Here in North America, we’re used to diesel engines that are loud and noxious – built to power big trucks and semis. But get behind the wheel of the Chevy Cruze Diesel, and you’ll experience a very different kind of diesel. Turn the key, and you won’t hear much more than a gentle murmur. Hit the gas, and you’ll get instant and satisfying acceleration. Check the trip computer to monitor your gas mileage, and you’ll be thoroughly impressed. The Cruze Diesel isn’t just different – in many ways, it’s better.
Quiet, Efficient, and Powerful
Under its hood, the 2015 Cruze Diesel will likely feature the same 2.0L four-cylinder turbodiesel engine as the 2014 model, which is capable of producing up to 151 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque. In the city, the Cruze diesel achieves a respectable EPA-estimated 26 mpg, but the highway is where it really shines. According to the EPA, the Cruze Diesel can get up to 46 mpg on the highway, which will save commuters in the Glendale Heights area a fair amount of money.
More Standard Features
We don’t have any official stats on the 2015 Cruze Diesel, but features like a touchscreen infotainment system, sport-tuned suspension, leather upholstery, heated front seats, exclusive alloy wheels, and aerodynamic upgrades will likely come standard. Features like foglights, a rearview camera, and keyless ignition may also be added to the list of standard features.
