Price details for the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel have just been announced and the customers have to cough a hefty premium on the gasoline engines in the USA
The prices for the 2018 Cruze LT Diesel Manual Sedan start at $ 24,670, including the $ 875 destination fee. Opt for the automatic and the price increases to $ 26,270. The prices for the 2018 Cruze Diesel Hatchback start at $ 26,310 for the LT manual and $ 26,740 for the LT Automatic.
Cars Direct notes that a Diesel Cruze equipped with the automatic transmission is $ 3,945 more expensive than its gasoline equivalent. However, the diesel is used with the so-called “convenience package”, an option that costs $ 1,150 in the petrol models.
While there are a number of competitors on the market to the new Cruze rear door model, including the Toyota Corolla iM and Kia Forte5, they do not have the option of a diesel engine.
The diesel engine, which supplies both the Cruze sedan and the tailgate model, displaces 1.6 liters from the turbocharger four-cylinder and delivers 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. EPA reviews for the rear door model have not been released but the diesel sedan will return 52 mpg on the highway with the manual transmission and a 37 mpg combined city / highway rating for the manual and auto. source: carscoop.com
