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.

Guaranty Chevrolet announces the expected arrival of the Chevy SS in late 2013


SANTA ANA, Calif (PRWEB) January 04, 2013

Chevrolet announced the return of a V-8 powered, rear-wheel-drive performance sedan to the U.S. lineup, the Chevrolet SS. The SS will also be Chevrolet’s next NASCAR Sprint Cup racecar and will debut in its race configuration at the 2013 Daytona 500.

The limited production version of the Chevrolet SS will be a 2014 model and will arrive at Guaranty Chevrolet in late 2013. It is the first time in 17 years that Chevrolet will offer a rear-wheel-drive sedan for sale in the United States.

“What better way for Chevrolet and Southern California to celebrate a rich history in racing and performance, than with the Chevrolet SS,” said Joe Renden of Guaranty Chevrolet in Orange County. ”We know that our race and performance enthusiasts will be thrilled for the arrival of the SS.”

Chevrolet has a long history of using the SS (Super Sport) designation on high-performance models of some of its most enduring nameplates. The SS designation first appeared in 1957 on a Corvette prototype race car built under the guidance of Zora Arkus-Duntov with the plan to enter it in the Le Mans 24-hour race.

The first production vehicle offered with an SS option was the 1961 Impala – 453 were built with the performance upgrades which included a modified chassis and suspension, power brakes, a steering column mounted tachometer and unique wheels and tires. The latest SS model in the Chevrolet lineup is the fifth-generation Camaro, which debuted in 2010.

The Chevrolet SS will be a derivative of the award-winning global rear-wheel-drive architecture that spawns performance vehicles like Chevrolet Camaro and Holden’s upcoming VF Commodore. The much anticipated Australian-built car will benefit from significant technology advances which enhance overall performance.

Chevrolet was America’s best-selling performance car brand in 2011 with Camaro and Corvette accounting for one out of every three sports cars sold in the United States. The addition of the SS should strengthen Chevrolet’s position as a leading performance brand.
