It finally becomes reality in Summer 2013. That's when the Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel hits the road running as the first clean diesel car ever produced by a U.S. automaker. Not only does it boast an impressive 46 MPG highway, its clean diesel engine generates at least 90% less Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and particulate emissions when compared to previous-generation diesels.
It all starts with a 2.0L turbocharged clean diesel engine designed in Italy, built in Germany and installed in Cruze at our factory in Lordstown, Ohio. The 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel comes equipped with the very latest clean diesel technology, which helps reduce emissions. But it also boasts 148 horsepower and 258 lb.ft. of "low-end" torque† — more than the Volkswagen Jetta TDI. That’s power you'll have to experience to believe.
Plus, the 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel comes standard with 2 Year / 24,000 Mile Vehicle Maintenance† that includes scheduled oil and filter changes, tire rotations, multipoint inspection and Diesel Exhaust Fluid refills.
Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel emissions are below strict U.S. environmental standards. In fact, to even qualify for clean diesel classification, Cruze had to meet modern Tier 2 Bin 5 Emission Standards —a new generation of stringent clean diesel standards.
Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel is equipped with technology including exhaust gas recirculation, selective catalyst reduction, a particulate filter and advanced fuel system components. All these technologies working together allow the diesel engine in Cruze to perform with very low Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions and very low particulate emissions.
While the Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel certainly packs a cleaner kick, it’s also been designed to reduce the noise and vibration often associated with earlier generation diesel cars. Then take into account the sporty 17" alloy wheels, and chances are you’ve never felt something so fun to drive with this kind of efficiency.
