Chevrolet Cruze Diesel MPG Sets New Benchmark

Recently, Chevrolet announced that the Cruze diesel mpg rating earned it the title of the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid/EV car in America. The diesel-powered Cruze earned an EPA-estimated rating of 30 mpg city/52 mpg highway* when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission.

This is good news for frequent road trippers. On a full tank of gas, you could drive up to 702 miles on the highway before needing to fill up again.

“Chevrolet is dedicated to offering customers a wide range of propulsion options. We know there are customers looking for the right combination of fuel efficiency, driving dynamics, fuel type and more. With the EPA-estimated 52-mpg highway Cruze Diesel Sedan, they can get it all,” said Steven Majoros, director of Chevrolet Marketing.

Powering the Cruze Diesel Sedan is a new Ecotec 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers 137 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. It can be had with either the six-speed manual or a Hydra-Matic nine-speed automatic transmission that comes with stop/start technology.

Along with its fuel-sipping diesel engine, buyers will get a host of high-tech features, including Onstar with built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Chevrolet MyLink, Bluetooth, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
