Diesel-powered Cruze can drive for 10 hours on a single tank of fuel
The EPA has handed down its fuel economy estimates for Chevrolet's new
2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel
. The EPA is estimating the vehicle will get 46 mpg on the highway, making it the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid vehicle in America. General Motors says that the car will be available in certain cities this spring and around the country and Canada early this fall.
The turbodiesel version of the Cruze is equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission and has an estimated range of 700 highway miles on a single tank of diesel fuel.
The 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine is rated for 148 hp and 258 pound-feet of torque (the engine features a special over boost function that can increase torque to 280 pound-foot for short bursts as needed). The vehicle is capable of accelerating from a stop to 60 mph in 8.6 seconds.
“We harnessed generations of diesel expertise to adapt our world-class global engine for the North American market,” said Gary Altman, chief engineer, Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. “The Cruze Diesel is the best diesel passenger car out there. Chevrolet is redefining the meaning of great fuel economy with this car.”
for the car is $25,695 including the $810 destination charge. The Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel also features the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, 17-inch wheels, leather seating, a five-year 100,000-mile powertrain warranty, and a two-year maintenance plan as standard equipment.

Samus there were early issues with some of the clutches on the 2012 Cruze Ecos. For about three months. Luckily mine was produced after that. I get no vibration unless I am lugging the engine by being in too low a gear and going too slow(<1200 rpm).
There are already guys with over 50-60,000 miles on their 2012 Ecos. If their clutch or flywheel was going to prematurely fail, I think it would have by now.
And my issue with E15 or E20 remains that my owners manual states using over E10 voids my warranty and the lower fuel economy.
