General Motors is preparing the unveiling of the much anticipated 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel with big news in terms of low emissions and fuel efficiency.
Detroit claims the 2.0-liter turbodiesel powered compact will top the segment with an estimated 42 miles per gallon on the highway, and stay below the stringent US environmental emissions standards.

"Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel fills an important role in Chevrolet's diverse four-cylinder line-up, and is primed to win over diesel devotees and compact car buyers with its performance, torque and fuel economy. We leveraged engineering expertise from around the globe to develop a world-class, low-emissions engine to give US and Canadian customers a car that's both fun to drive and practical at the pump," said Chris Perry, Chevrolet vice president of marketing in a press release.

GM states Chevrolet's Cruze Turbo Diesel will also be delivering segment-leading performance with 148 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque at just 2,000 rpm. The advanced 2.0-liter, said to be based on proven architecture already used in European models, will be built in Kaiserslautern, Germany.

Prices for the 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel start at $25,695 including destination fee, a two-year maintenance plan and a five-year 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The first vehicles will be delivered in May or June 2013.
