Michigan Chevrolet Dealers Will Receive Diesel Chevrolet Cruze; 2013 Expected Release

There are more than one alternative to hybrid vehicles to get more efficient fuel mileage and one of them is diesel engines. Michigan Chevrolet dealers have learned the popular Chevy Cruze will be coming to U.S. dealerships in a diesel version in 2013.

DETROIT, M.I. – Michigan Chevrolet dealers welcome the news that they will be receiving another fuel-efficient vehicle to offer their customers, starting in 2013. There are hybrids such as General Motors’ Chevy Volt or mild-hybrids such as the Buick LaCrosse with eAssist, and diesel engines are an option that is steadily growing in the U.S. for higher fuel efficiency.

Currently, the diesel Chevrolet Cruze is already available in Europe and other countries and will finally be available for the U.S. market. The reason it took so long for the decision to bring the diesel to the U.S. market was because automakers such as General Motors believed that there would be no demand for such a vehicle, especially when diesel engines cost more than non-diesel.

Diesel engines get on average 20 to 40 percent better fuel mileage than other gasoline engines of the same size. It is true that the cost of diesel fuel is between five and 10 percent higher than regular gasoline, but diesel engines get better fuel economy because they do not burn as much fuel as gas engines to get the same amount of power.

Other benefits of diesel engines include:

no ignition system so there is no need for a tune up
exhaust systems last longer as diesel fuel exhaust is not as corrosive as gas exhaust
diesel engines may last between 400,000 and 600,000 miles

The more popular diesel available to the market now is the Volkswagen Jetta TDI, which sells for $ 22,995 and earns 30 mpg city and 42 mpg highway. General Motors expects the diesel Chevrolet Cruze to be in direct competition with the VW model, although pricing has not been announced yet.

Michigan Chevrolet dealers may know the highest performing gas-mileage vehicle available from General Motors is the Chevrolet Cruze Eco that is estimated at 42 mpg highway and 28 mpg city. The diesel Chevrolet Cruze is expected to beat those numbers while delivering 50 mpg. This puts the diesel in line to rival other fuel-efficient vehicles like hybrids such as the Toyota Prius.

Dealerships such as Michigan Chevrolet dealers may expect the diesel Chevrolet Cruze in their showrooms by the 2013 calendar year. Consumers may enjoy having another type of vehicle at their disposal to decide from as they choose which fuel-efficient vehicle is right for them.

Michigan Chevrolet Dealers Hear Chevrolet Cruze Exceeding Expectations during First Quarter

DETROIT, M.I. – Michigan Chevrolet dealers may have been impressed by the fuel efficiency available with the Chevrolet Cruze. Being one of the most-fuel efficient cars in the U.S., the Chevrolet Cruze has increased in sales over the past three months and is expected to surpass 50,000 in U.S. sales during the first quarter.

Not only is the Chevrolet Cruze fuel efficient but it’s designed to be stylish, smart and trendy. In a survey conducted by Chevrolet of 500 new Chevrolet Cruze owners, the top two reasons for purchasing a Cruze were for its exterior styling and fuel efficiency.

“With the all-new Cruze, we set out to build the best compact car on the market,” said Lisa Hutchinson, Chevrolet Cruze marketing director in a GM press release. “The Cruze is priced to compete in the compact segment. But the Cruze offers the styling of a more expensive car, as well as more standard safety features than any other compact, and more miles per gallon with the Cruze Eco model. Clearly, that’s a combination many customers can appreciate.”

Michigan Chevrolet dealers are seeing not only repeat-Chevrolet owners trading in their Chevrolet models for the Cruze, but there are 48 percent new Cruze owners that traded in a different make. Only 34 percent traded in other Chevrolet models and 18 percent had no trade in, which may suggest those buyers were adding another vehicle to the household or buying the first.

There are three models of the Chevrolet Cruze that reach 36 miles per gallon highway: Cruze LS, LT and LTZ. The Chevrolet Cruze Eco reaches up to 42 miles per gallon, which is more than any other gasoline-powered car on the market, excluding hybrid and diesel models. The Chevrolet Cruze Eco stocks an efficient 1.4-liter turbocharged engine which delivers 138 horsepower.

Some safety features that all Cruze models are stocked with include StabiliTrak electronic stability control, 10 air bags and six months of OnStar with Chevrolet’s Directions and Connections package. According to Chevrolet, these features have made it possible for the Cruze to be the first compact car to earn the best-possible crash test ratings from both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the revised New Car Assessment Program administered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and implemented for the 2011 model year.

The following shows the current ranked vehicles and their ratings:
