DETROIT (AP) -- The Chevrolet Cruze, the most popular car in the U.S. last month, will come in a diesel version that could boost gas mileage to around 50 mpg, two people briefed on General Motors Co. product plans said Monday.

Will the diesel model include the steering wheel?
Sounds like a nice car, but I’ll never buy a GM. I don’t like union thugs who use government to steal from their fellow citizens.
Is this a second Vega?
Anybody look at diesel fuel prices lately?
An interesting thing about Vegas. The engine compartment and engine mounts would allow one to fit a small block Chevy. It was favored by some because of the low weight of the vehicle. Put a stout 350 in there and they would fly.
Volkswagen Jetta TDI.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it UAW !
I’d learn to levitate before I bought a government motors vehicle.
It’s taken this long for an American car manufacturer to produce a diesel-powered car. And it had to be Government Motors.
Better to get the VW Jetta TDI at 58mpg with a steering wheel we know won’t fall off.
I wish they’d put it in a Tiguan and make the Tiguan less fugly. I’m dying for a small or mid-size diesel SUV. Diesel is like a hybrid for people who can do math.
I’ll never buy another GM product.
“Sounds like a nice car, but Ill never buy a GM. I dont like union thugs who use government to steal from their fellow citizens.”
Agree...I love Diesels too, but NEVER GM (or any other UAW car). We might as well simply contribute to Obama’s re-election and be done with it...if we buy one of their cars.
Do what, GM produced diesel powered cars back in the eighties and they screwed that up royally as usual, they took a 350 olds gas motor and converted it to a diesel, the first ones they built blew the oil pans off because the wonderful engineers forgot to include a sump vacuum system. by the time they had all the factory screw ups fixed it had such a bad name no-one wanted to buy it.
Hope it works better than the last GM diesel.
Can you say “massive fail”?
I’ll believe it when I see it. GM also promised a 4.5l Duramax, but when the government took over, they put the kibosh on it.

I bought one new in 1999 and still have it. it has 168,000 miles on it, I get 45+/- MPG, and plan on getting another 168,000 miles out of it.
