Diesels are Big at Chicago Auto Show

Green Car Reports - January 29, 2013

If you want to improve your gas mileage but aren’t ready to take the plunge into hybrids or plug-ins just yet, you may want to con­sider a diesel engine.

Here’s one par­tic­u­lar model being high­lighted in Chicago.

Chevy will unveil the diesel Cruze at the Chicago Auto Show on Feb­ru­ary 7.

Pro­duc­tion will then begin in the sec­ond quar­ter, with sales expected to begin in April or May, accord­ing to a source.

The Chevy Cruze Diesel will use a 2.0-liter direct-injected tur­bocharged diesel engine, equipped with AdBlue urea injec­tion to con­vert nitrous oxides into nitro­gen and water. This will help it pass tough emis­sions tests both now, and in the future.
