CRUZE DIESEL BEATS OUT THE COMPETITION

LOWER EMISSIONS

Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel emissions meet the very strict Tier 2 Bin 5 Emissions Standards — a new generation of stringent clean diesel standards. Its technology includes exhaust gas recirculation, selective catalyst reduction, a particulate filter and advanced fuel system components. The Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel has also been designed to reduce the noise and vibration often associated with earlier generation diesel cars.

WHILE THE U.S. HAS BEEN SLOW TO EMBRACE THE REMARKABLE FUEL EFFICIENCY AND LOW EMISSIONS BENEFITS OF THE LATEST CLEAN DIESEL TECHNOLOGY, CANADIANS HAVE DEMONSTRATED REAL ENTHUSIASM FOR IT. WHILE IT MAY BE UNLIKELY FOR DIESEL PASSENGER VEHICLE SALES TO SURPASS THE 50 PERCENT MARK AS THEY DO IN EUROPE, INDUSTRY FORECASTS SHOW ROBUST GROWTH AND A WIDE RANGE OF NEW DIESEL ENTRIES MAKING THEIR WAY ONTO CANADIAN ROADS.
