DETROIT - September marks the three-year anniversary of the Chevrolet Cruze in the U.S., a hallmark for the global compact that is Chevrolet's best-selling nameplate with more than 2 million units sold around the world.

Cruze has been a big contributor to General Motors' U.S. and global sales gains since its launch in 2009. Chevrolet small cars, including the Spark, Sonic, Cruze and Volt, have seen a 229 percent increase in sales from the first six months of 2010 compared to the first six months of 2013, evidence of the brand's success at attracting new buyers.

Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel's Engine Creates "Perfect Storm"
Posted by dave on July 31, 2013 @ 06:33 PM PST
DETROIT - The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel's advanced 2.0L engine uses a variable-swirl intake system to create a "perfect storm" of air and fuel that helps enhance performance while reducing emissions.

"Variable swirl helps put the 'clean' in Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel. It increases the mixture-motion of air and fuel in low-speed, low-load driving, like when you’re doing the commuter crawl to work every day," said Mike Siegrist, 2.0L turbo diesel assistant chief engineer. "It contributes to Cruze Diesel's great fuel economy, and helps give drivers the most torque for the least amount of fuel at the lowest emission and noise levels."

2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel
Posted by dave on February 07, 2013 @ 08:37 AM PST
CHICAGO - The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel features an advanced 2.0L clean diesel engine that will offer an estimated 42 mpg highway with an automatic transmission and expected best-in-segment range based on GM testing. Clean diesels generate at least 90 percent less Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and particulate emissions when compared to previous-generation diesels. It is the cleanest diesel passenger car engine ever produced by General Motors.

Cruze's 2.0L turbo-diesel is based on proven architecture already used in European models, where approximately 40 percent of all Cruze models sold feature a diesel engine. Collaborating with Italian and German 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.
