DIESEL CARS AND CROSSOVERS

Diesel runs in the family

Meet the newest additions to the Chevrolet diesel lineup: Equinox, Cruze, and Cruze Hatch. Each builds upon our storied diesel history, and Chevy now offers more diesel cars, trucks and SUVs combined than any other brand. These three new diesel vehicles allow you to enjoy exceptional efficiency, responsive driving dynamics, and excellent durability all without compromising the style and convenience you love.

Expand your range

How far will you go? Most likely, pretty far. The 2018 Cruze Diesel offers the highest highway fuel economy of any non-hybrid or non-electric vehicle in America, and the 2018 Equinox Diesel offers the Best-in-Class 39 MPG highway with the available 1.6L Turbo-Diesel.

When you drive a diesel, you can expect better fuel economy than a comparably-sized gas engine. The higher compression ratio and leaner combustion of a diesel engine contributes to improved efficiency when compared to a similar size gasoline engine. All of this can add up to less time at the pump and more time enjoying the drive.

Always quick to respond

Torque is what makes a car feel quick—and what makes it fun to drive. Diesel engines can offer more torque at low rpm than a similarly sized gas engine, resulting in increased responsiveness. So when the light turns green or you’re merging onto the highway, you’ll be ready to go.

Plus, transmission options mean you can drive on your own terms. Cruze Diesel is available in either a 9-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission, while Equinox features a standard 6-speed automatic.

Modern diesels

Diesel has evolved

The 1.6L diesel engines available in Cruze and Equinox were designed to be more efficient and quieter than diesels of the past. From the advanced combustion system to the location of the timing system, each element works together to create an engine that’s highly advanced, efficient and quieter than you’d expect.

Go somewhere a little more quiet(ly)

Cruze and Equinox diesels have been created with quiet in mind. The engine block has been engineered to help transmit less noise outside of the engine, while different acoustic packages around the engine compartment reduce noise as well. Mufflers, engine and passenger compartments, and even the tuning of the diesel injection system all contribute to a better, quiet driving experience.

These muted noise and vibration qualities, even at idle, will challenge any perception you may have that diesels are loud. While not as quiet as a whisper, this 1.6L diesel engine is so quiet that European enthusiasts nicknamed it the “flüster diesel” (“whisper diesel”).

The only difference is diesel

You get everything you want and love from Cruze and Equinox, plus an available diesel engine. That means better mileage and increased responsiveness (at most speeds) without compromise. From entertainment features to available advanced safety technologies, when it comes to comfort and convenience you’ll be ready to go wherever these vehicles takes you.
