Oshawa, Ontario (Tuesday, May 28, 2013) – The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel facilities an modernized 2.0L purify diesel engine with an involuntary delivery that delivers an attention best 4.2 L/100km highway – softened than any non-hybrid newcomer automobile in Canada.  It arrives in Chevrolet showrooms subsequent month.  

Clean diesels beget during slightest 90 percent reduction Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and particulate emissions when compared to previous-generation diesels.

Cruze’s 2.0L turbo-diesel is formed on proven pattern used in European models, where approximately 40 percent of all Cruze models sole underline a diesel engine. Collaborating with Italian and German engineering groups, GM’s diesel experts in a United States blending a engine to accommodate some-more difficult diesel glimmer standards and a wider operation of pushing conditions – including colder climates and aloft altitudes – for a United States and Canada.

“This Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel represents a new epoch in diesel opening for North American cars,” pronounced Italy-based Jens Wartha, 2.0L turbo diesel arch engineer. “We’ve blending a proven engine from Europe, a world’s diesel capital, and married it with a emissions-reducing record that was polished in a United States. It’s a good instance of how Chevrolet’s tellurian resources work harmoniously to furnish a right product during a right time and for a right market.”

Cruze Diesel beats a rivals in performance, with a segment-leading, SAE-certified 151 horsepower (113 kW) and 264 lb-ft of torque (358 Nm), and can go from 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in about 8.6 seconds. Its modernized 2.0L turbo-diesel engine produces during slightest 250 lb-ft of torque (339 Nm) between 1,750 and 3,000 rpm and has an overboost underline able of augmenting torque to an estimated 280 lb-ft (380 Nm) for brief bursts of stronger acceleration when needed, such as merging onto a bustling freeway. 

“With a advantage of continual excellence in other markets, a 2.0L turbo-diesel comes to a United States and Canada with opening that will impress,” pronounced U.S.-based Mike Siegrist, 2.0L turbo diesel partner arch engineer. “It is powerful, fit and clean. It will change perceptions of what a diesel automobile can be while giving business another fuel-efficient choice in a Cruze lineup.”

Cruze models in a United States and Canada offer a 1.4L turbo, a 1.4L Eco indication and 1.8L naturally aspirated engine.

The 2.0L turbo-diesel engine provides softened fuel expenditure than a comparably sized gasoline engine by larger thermal efficiency, a aloft application ratio and an unthrottled explosion process. It facilities an iron cylinder retard and a fake steel crankshaft, any designed to mount adult to a larger cylinder pressures that come with a turbo-diesel engine.

A lightweight aluminum cylinder conduct and aluminum intake plural minister to a engine’s weight of 408 pounds (185 kg), assisting a Cruze Diesel’s doing and float characteristics.  Additional highlights include:

  • Dual beyond camshafts with 4 valves per cylinder and maintenance-free hydraulic lifters with low-friction roller-finger followers
  • Quiet belt-driven cams/valvetrain with high-strength belt element and tensioner rated for 100,000 miles
  • High-strength aluminum pistons with reinforced tip ring and constituent explosion play design
  • Central approach injection, with a injector positioned in a center of a cylinder, with a play in a piston portion as a explosion chamber. This enables a high 16.5:1 application ratio that enhances energy and explosion efficiency
  • Variable-swirl intake plural design, that creates a many of atmosphere assign reduction suit in a cylinders for a more-efficient explosion that enhances opening and reduces emissions
  • Common-rail fuel complement with Piezo fuel injectors that emanate mixed injections per explosion for larger performance, explosion potency and quietness
  • Variable-nozzle turbocharger that broadens a engine’s altogether torque curve. It is mounted tighten to a empty opening of a engine for quicker “spool up” of a turbine and faster “light off” of a empty catalyst
  • Intercooling complement produces a cooler, denser atmosphere assign for larger torque and power
  • Piston oil jets that assistance revoke attrition and optimize piston heat for larger opening and efficiency
  • Turbocharger orientation are oil-lubricated and cooled around an oil cooler
  • Variable-displacement oil siphon helps save fuel by optimizing a oil pressure, that reduces friction
  • Vacuum siphon designed for reduce engine friction
  • Ceramic heat plugs, that yield larger cold-start opening over required steel heat plugs (an engine oil heater is offering for cold climates)
  • B20 bio-diesel compatibility.

Quiet, well-spoken opening is enabled by a series of facilities on and around a engine. There are also sound-absorbing features, specific to a Cruze diesel, including a singular lurch mat, hood sweeping and more.

A accurate empty gas recirculation control complement facilities a high-capacity cooler and bypass underline that capacitate a engine to accommodate U.S. and Canadian diesel emissions regulations. There is also an empty after-treatment complement identical to what is used on Chevrolet’s heavy-duty trucks and vans versed with a Duramax diesel, including a diesel particulate filter and diesel glimmer liquid injection, that helps make a 2.0L a cleanest diesel newcomer automobile engine ever from GM.

An approximately 17 litre (4.5-gallon) tank in a Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel binds adequate diesel emissions liquid to yield during slightest 16,000 kilometres (10,000 miles) of pushing between refills.

Chevrolet has sole some-more than 2 million Cruze models globally given it was launched in mid-2010. More than 35,000 of those sole final year were diesel powered.
