Good news came out of the Chicago Auto Show today for fans of the Bowtie brand and proponents of diesel engines. For the first time in many years, General Motors will be offering a diesel engine in a passenger car sold in North America. It will be available this summer in the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze.

good thing. But GM prove yourself with a diesel in north america before stating that your 2.0 is better than VW's jetta...

I would be "all in" for clean diesel if fuel taxes in New York didn't make the cost of it prohibitive.

Love the turbo diesel but the price of diesel fuel needs to come down.

"But will it have a three pedal option we can order?"

Why, so you can peddle faster? (grin)

It would be nice to see a diesel and a diesel-hybrid engine option available for GM's SUVs and pickups.

I like the Cruze, but no diesel for me. The diesel option is too expensive and diesel fuel is $4.20-4.50/gallon around here

With diesel prices over $4.00, it is not worth the price. Need to get the mpg up and price for the car down.

Article states 5.6L / 100 km = 42 mpg. Not all that great since diesel is much more expensive than reg gas.

"Chevy also says Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel will deliver an estimated 5.6L/100 km on the highway." What is that in MPG?
