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.
