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.
