2017 Chevrolet Cruze: 50 MPG Diesel Range Is More Than Just A Hype
The previous Chevrolet Cruze is not exactly the most fun vehicle to drive but that is about to change with its diesel-powered engine. Yes, the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze now has a diesel powertrain and the good news does not even end there. When the automaker promised the diesel powertrain for the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze, it also promised that it will be capable of 50 miles per gallon range, which the automaker delivered.
2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel: Living Up To The Hype
Surely, you are wondering just what kind of a diesel engine is fitted in the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze. According to report, the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze has a 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-4 diesel that delivers 137 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with a six-speed manual transmission with an optional automatic gearbox.
Accordingly, the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze diesel with manual gearbox has the best fuel economy range as it goes up to 30/52/37 miles per gallon in the city, on the highway and combined respectively. The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze with automatic gearbox is by no means a pushover either because it has a fuel economy of 31/47/37 miles per gallon in the city, on the highway and combined. That being said, the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze diesel is living up to the hype as the automaker delivers its promise and even went a couple of notches beyond the promised number.
The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze will also have its petrol-powered engine that will also be paired with the same transmission options. However, the fuel economy will not be as good as the diesel engine. Accordingly, the gas-powered manual gearbox for the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze has a range of 28/39/32 miles per gallon in the city, highway and combined. The gas-powered automatic gearbox on the other hand has a bit more range with 30/40/34 miles per gallon in the city, highway and combined.

Given this fact, we can expect the Chevrolet Cruze hatchback to arrive late this year.
