GM open the lids off from their new European-segment 2013 Chevrolet Cruze wagon previous week at the Geneva Motor Show. GM haven’t informed the release date for fresh diesel Cruze, but we’d anticipate it somewhere in the end of the next summer. Even though General Motors has previously agreed that the diesel-engine Chevrolet Cruze is scheduled to be revealed to the North American segment next year, the car will brought with a variant of the 2.0-liter engine which also sold in Europe, that manufacturer’s lately-revealed 1.7 liter little brother might pass us some clues as to what the bowtie crowd is up to.
It seems, GM understand that consumers are going to have to be surprised by more than just a nice gas mileage, so the Cruze diesel will possible be sell as a Euro-based mix of performance as well as high gas uptake. Below the vehicle’s revised bonnet is a fresh 1.7-liter 4-cylinder turbo diesel mechanical.
With 130 hp as well as 221 lb-ft. of torque, this mechanical could merely enough to bring the 2013 Cruze up to the segment standards. The new Cruze will possibly get another high gas mileage variant to add the Eco. It’s anticipated that Chevy will release a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder diesel mechanical which is great for 161 hp as well as a 265 pound-feet of torque. The new variant will be lined up to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Those things would be a great, round point definitely to assist GM’s selling attempts, but we want to know if it does can be reach. We have test drive the Australian variant of a diesel Cruze and its gas mileage is not impressive. It was ranked at 35 mpg combined in Australia, but what we got is only around 27 mpg, even though that was in a heavy footing in the time of canyon riding.
General Motors will have to force more bellow that for the U.S market if they need the customers to buy the Cruze Eco. The diesel 2013 Chevy Cruze will get their job removed, however. Then again, we were excited with the diesel Cruze’s silence mechanical procedure as well as material low-end torque.

The Cruze 2013 diesel would span the course in the space which separates performance and effectiveness, however, it doesn’t take a diesel engineer to understand that GM need to choose on the only diesel compact lately available in the U.S. as well as Canada: The Volkswagen Jetta TDI.
Yes, the Cruze will take the Volkswagen Jetta TDI as their target, which make 30 mpg in the city as well as 42 mpg in the highway. However, the gas-sipping Cruze Eco previously has regaining points equal with the TDI, so it’s likely the diesel Cruze could reach as high as 50 mpg on the highway.
