Chevrolet CruzeBachman Chevrolet is always excited to pass along news about the cars and trucks we sell. That’s why we’re proud to share with you that the Chevy Cruze Diesel has been named the diesel car of the year by Diesel Driver Magazine!

With more than 59% of the vote, the Chevy Cruze edged out many competitors in the category. Diesel Driver Magazine editorial director Jonathan Spira said, “The message from our readers is clear. Diesels are back and Chevrolet is in the forefront!” 

So what makes the Chevy Cruze Diesel different?

Chevy built this year’s Cruze with an all new 2.0L clean turbo-diesel powered engine that achieves an EPA-estimated 46 mpg highway. This level of efficiency is greater than any non-hybrid or gasoline passenger car in America. A single tank will allow the Cruze Diesel to travel more than 717 miles, or 10 hours of highway driving!

This year’s model also features a globally designed powertrain. The engine is built in Kaiserslautern, Germany and is assembled in Lordstown, Ohio. The Cruze’s 2.0L Diesel engine was recognized by Wards Auto as one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines of the year.

And Chevy is only improving on the design of the Cruze. The 2015 model will debut at the New York International Auto Show with revised exterior styling, enhanced interior convenience, and greater connectivity. This means the 2015 Cruze will be equipped to recognize text message alerts, will have an Apple Siri integration, and OnStar 4G LTE with available Wi-Fi hotspot. All of this and a diesel powertrain option will be available in updated models coming out later this year.
