New Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Aims for Performance and Fuel Economy
text size: A- A+
Also, General Motors already sells the Cruze Eco which is a gasoline version of the well known compact, managing to achieve through aerodynamic and transmission adjustments 42mpg(5.6L/100km) on the highway.
“Chevrolet has a great price-point vehicle that has tremendous eye appeal and options but may not meet the performance needs of a select market group. It’s a win for Chevy and it’s a win for consumers wanting the best of both worlds, performance and reasonably good fuel economy without an unusually high penalty on the fuel budget – all while satisfying their other desire to purchase an American-brand vehicle,”Joseph Lescota, chair of the Automotive Marketing ManagementDepartment for Northwood University in Midland, Michigan, was quoted as saying by wardsauto.com.
Aside the qualities of the vehicle, American consumers will have to disregard the price at the pump which is between $0.20 and $0.30 a gallon more than gasoline.
