First diesel-powered Chevrolet car to come to the US in decades

Chevrolet has gone official with its first diesel-powered car to come to the US in decades. The car is a 2.0-liter turbo diesel version of the popular Chevrolet Cruze. The engine in the car will produce 148 hp and 258 pound-foot of torque.

Chevrolet says that the vehicle is estimated to get 42 mpg on the highway. Diesel-powered automobiles are rare in the United States with the one of the few cars offering a diesel powerplant in the US being the Volkswagen Jetta TDI. Chevrolet says that its Clean Turbo Diesel offers better performance than that Volkswagen with a 0 to 60 mph time of 8.6 seconds.

The Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel will start at $25,695 including destination charge. The turbo diesel engine is backed by a six-speed automatic transmission. The price of the car also includes a five-year 100,000 mile powertrain warranty and a two-year maintenance plan.

First things first. The best thing to happen in San Diego during the Labor Day weekend was the Drive Like Jehu reunion show in Balboa Park, which found the angular rock geniuses accompanied by the gigantic, century-old Spreckels Organ. Everything else of note was simply vying for second place, including the annual U.S. Sand Sculpting Championships. Since Chevrolet apparently couldn’t get (or more likely didn’t try to get) J ...
