2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Review

2017 Chevrolet Cruze Premier Diesel
2017 Chevrolet Cruze Premier Diesel

A number of available diesel models has been shrinking since early last year, but the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze is a leader, not a follower. The streamlined compact car now comes with an available diesel powertrain that’s both efficient and powerful. With reviewers raving and enthusiasts loving the new powertrain, the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze diesel sedan is out to change the compact segment for good.

The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze equipped with the available diesel powertrain starts at just $23,795 MSRP,* and drivers can upgrade to the available nine-speed transmission for an additional $2,000. Many reviewers agree that the diesel powertrain is well worth the money.

The 1.6-liter diesel engine delivers a sporty 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque for a ride no driver will ever forget. Because of that, the new Cruze diesel sedan is capable of earning up to an EPA-estimated 52 mpg highway.* That fuel economy puts it a step above top competitors like the Volkswagen Jetta and Ford Focus.

The new diesel engine is currently only available in the 2017 Cruze sedan model. It will be available in the Cruze hatchback and Equinox crossover later this year as well.

We here at Teague Chevrolet are excited to see the drivers loving the new Cruze diesel sedan!
