2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel now available at Medved Autoplex

New Cruze offers better mpg, efficiency than Jetta TDI

WHEAT RIDGE, Colo., June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- With the release of every new model-year of Chevrolet cars, trucks and SUVs there is always an air of innovation surrounding the news. Chevrolet has already announced that the class of 2014 Chevrolet models will feature some of the most high-performance vehicles with unveiling and upcoming releases of the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray, 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28 and the 2014 Chevy SS. While these three cars are going to be exciting for their future owners to drive and experience, one does not need several hundred horsepower under the hood to be a summer blockbuster. In rare occurrences, what car doesn't do is the very thing that makes it special, and that is exactly the story with the release of the 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel near Denver that is now available at Medved Autoplex.

For the first time in over a quarter-century Chevrolet and General Motors are releasing a car powered by a diesel engine. Diesel cars have been popular in Europe for some time now. And models like the Volkswagen Jetta TDI have been gaining traction with American consumers. In an effort to stave off an European invasion of diesel-powered cars, Chevrolet has built the 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel to go toe-to-toe with the Jetta TDI and win on just about every level. The 2.0-liter, turbocharged Clean Diesel engine that powers the new Chevy Cruze Diesel by Denver has benefitted from decades of technological advancement. This new generation of diesel engine is specifically designed and built to exceed the strict emissions standards set in place by United States' law. Among the innovations that this new Clean Turbo Diesel engine features are: A new technology for recirculation of exhaust gas, selective catalyst reduction and a particulate filter. All of these improvements have led to the Clean Turbo Diesel engine generating as much as 90 percent less nitrogen oxide emissions.

As it stands right now, the chief rival of the 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel is going to be the Volkswagen Jetta TDI. The new Cruze Diesel will have better highway fuel-economy with 46 miles per gallon that bests the 42 miles per gallon of the Jetta TDI. The new Chevy Cruze Diesel will also have a longer range than the Jetta; being able to travel 717 miles versus the 609-mile range of the Jetta TDI. Fuel-efficiency and lowered emissions have not come at the cost of performance with the new Cruze Diesel; the new Chevy car will record 264 pound-feet of torque and has an overboost feature that will provide a short burst of additional power at the push of a button. The new Chevy Cruze Diesel also has more horsepower (151-hp) than the Jetta (140-hp).
