Motoring: Chevy Cruze offers clean turbo diesel engine for 2014

Clean diesels using modern diesel exhaust technology and ultra low sulfur fuel are over 90 per cent cleaner than older models.

The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel features an advanced 2.0-litre clean diesel engine that will offer an estimated (US) 42 mpg highway with an automatic transmission and expected best-in-segment range based on GM testing.

It was shown at the recent Chicago Auto Show.

Clean diesels using modern diesel exhaust technology and ultra low sulfur fuel are over 90 per cent cleaner than older models.

The Chevy Cruze is the cleanest diesel passenger car model ever produced by General Motors, and with approval for use with clean, renewable B20 biodiesel blends, it’s also now the greenest.

The Cruze’s 2.0-litre turbo-diesel is based on proven architecture already used in European models, where approximately 40 per cent of all Cruze models sold feature a diesel engine.

Collaborating with German and Italian engineering groups, GM’s diesel experts in the United States adapted the engine to accommodate more stringent diesel emission standards and a wider range of driving conditions—including colder climates and higher altitudes—for the United States and Canada.
