Chevrolet announced its EPA-Estimated fuel economy numbers today for the new 2017 Cruze Diesel.

Cruze Diesel w/ six-speed manual = 30 mpg City, 52 MPG Highway, and 37 mpg combined.

Cruze Diesel w/ nine-speed automatic = 31 mpg City, 47 mpg Highway and 37 mpg combined.

These numbers should put the Cruze diesel on top in overall fuel efficiency for non-hybrid vehicles in its class, though it will likely be very close to or behind the Honda Civic in Combined fuel economy. The Civic sedan automatic, with its 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine earns a 36 MPG Combined rating using regular unleaded gasoline. FuelEconomy.GOV has not yet published the full specifications for the Cruze, but we will bring that information to our readers when it is available.

 

Chevy says that the new Cruze will have only 137 hp, but a whopping 240 lb-ft of torque. Chevy also says that the vehicle has passed all U.S. environmental standards and validations, including Tier 3 Bin 125 emissions standards. The 2017 Cruze Diesel Sedan will start at $24,670 including destination. Chevy says the 2018 model year Cruze Diesel Hatch will follow the sedan late in 2017.

Thank you GM for spending billions on CLEAN DIESEL in EU AND USA! SUCK IT VW now it's just a matter of time before the 20,000 units or so of total USA sales is chocking the life out of your lying crap! Monthly numbers I am talking about~!

Good to hear they are still investing in the diesel, hope it makes its way into more of the GM lineup.

Awesome numbers! Hopefully they're underrated like for our nissan versa (6mt), which is rated at 36 mpg highway but has gotten up to 46 multiple times.

Thanks Bog Red 'Rado. Indeed, a weird typo on my part. No idea how 36 ended up 17. Thanks for pointing it out, I have fixed it in the post.

Let's just hope those are real numbers and GM isn't doing anything illegal to get them.

I clicked this thread thinking 52mpg nominal.

 

my 3000 pound, 10 geared 1987 subaru has been at 38mpg for 30 years.

it is astounding.

the REAL 38mpg is astounding.

 

I have the hot rod motor today, 1781cc with dual port... dropped it to 30mpg hammer down.

city highway, anyway..

90mph is 3600rpm...and strangely it's peak of mpg.

 

injection can't do the old draft games anymore, glad to see the 30s anyway, modern and more power..and even air conditioning etc.

 

Don't laugh, but as the weather gets colder, I want my engines to use more. My truck has gone down to low teens at single digit temps or less.

that is something else these little engine people are failing to mention... as most companies do. They all know when to use more to air density today.

The old carbs stayed a rock. Got real annoying in lean conditions, cold weather, or fog.. whatever changes air.

 

rambling on..what they got is nothing new...the gadgets surrounding old numbers is the good stuff.

      I was looking at possibly lifting my 2017 silverado sometime in the future. I'm between a 4 inch and a 6 inch lift kit. But I have noticed that will every brand of lift kits, you have to cut the cross member mounts off the frame. I would rather not have to do that just in case I ever decide to go back stock. I have looked at rancho, fabtech, rough country, BDS, and zone. Is there a kit that I possibly haven't looked at that doesn't require cutting? or is it a big deal to really cut them off? can they be welded back on easily?
       
      If there is a topic already established I'm sorry, I tried to search and find stuff on this but was unable to.

      Is there a cheap way to upgrade existing mylink with one that has apple car play? All of the ways I've seen are over $1000.

      CASH TALKS! TEXT ME OR CALL 406-690-537I TO DISCUSS, TEXT PREFERRED AS I WORK OUT OF CELL SERVICE OFTEN.

      Selling my beloved 2007 GMC Duramax Diesel, last year of the best of the LBZ model code. No emissions from the factory to deal with, and considered to be the best model of duramax ever made. This is a very clean truck, I looked long and hard to find this, and it is my 3rd lbz GM truck. No leaks no drips no check engine lights nothing. Ready for anything and will last forever, I see these trucks on the forums over a half million miles getting beat on daily and running forever, this has been babied. Yes I am asking over book and considering offers, please realize this truck has had a lot more than the average truck has had put into it. Really like buying a brand new truck with everything completely done. Truck is awesome all around. The front seats are showing light wear but no rips, rears and rest of interior looks like new. A couple light paint chips on the front bumper, and I have all factory touch up paints. That's it for imperfections. THIS TRUCK IS CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN. I hate selling, however this truck is such a garage queen it makes it hard for me to justify keeping. I started a new position shortly after purchasing the truck and have a work vehicle I use the marjority of the time. The truck is only used for weekend soccer interstate trips etc.

      I am the 3rd owner, first was in california and second was in billings and was an oil worker, and it was a garage queen its life. I purchased the truck and did extensive upgrades and reliability modifications to make it the perfect truck in my eyes. I have spent thousands in upgrades and countless hours and extensive labor charges to get the truck to where it is today. This will make someone a reliable powerful vehicle for many years to come with everything done. Always ran premium diesel and Stanadyne with every fillup.

      Truck is fully loaded slt model, every available option except leaking sunroof. Bose stereo, power heated leather etc etc.

      I will do my best to list everything I can think of about the truck. I am sure I will miss much as so much has been done it is hard to even remember it all. Everything was done with reliability in mind first, and performance second. I have most of the stock parts as well that have been removed.

      Upgrades and performance modifications...
      Allison deep transmission pan and new gasket with all new filters.
      Transgo jr shift kit.
      Fleece all on module
      Duramax store transmission cooler line kit upgrade (replaces notorious oem leaking lines)
      Professionally installed rough country 3" lift kit, including new steering stabilizer, 4 new shocks, new rear block, new upper control arms with better angle for ball joint lift, new torsion keys. Also did new pitman and idler arm at this time and full alignment.
      16" XD wheels with 33" Cooper AT3 tires, maybe 5k miles on tires.
      SDP PCV reroute kit
      AFE Series 2 intake with afe pre filter
      4" MBRP mufflered exhaust with black tip.
      3" MBRP downpipe
      MBRP uppipe
      Sinister EGR delete kit
      Edge Insight Gauge Monitor with egt into passenger side exhaust header. Gauge is mounted in dash pod and professionally wired.
      Airdog 165 lift pump
      Capped resonator
      Fleece headlight modification (allows fogs brights lows driving to all be on simultaneously)
      Full window tint with vent visors.
      2 sets of weathertech floor mats, one still new in box.
      Trailer brake
      Snugtop Topper color matched and fitted for the truck, matches the lines perfect.
      5th wheel rails in bed
      GMC Gatorback heavy duty mudflaps
      Lund chrome nerf bars
      Blacked out led taillights

      EFI LIVE by Idaho rob at atp in Idaho, comes with efi live tuner.
      If you are not familiar with efi live tuning take some time to read up on google, it is amazing what it does for these trucks and Idaho Rob is considered among the best tuners in the business.
      Truck was tuned after all modifications were completed and comes with 5 tunes that are able to be shifted on the fly with the dsp 5 switch mounted in the cigarette lighter spot and is tuned for the transmission with shift kit. Tunes range from optimized stock, tow tune with turbo tow brake, 90hp eco, 120 street, and 150 hot race, and are changeable simply by turning the switch from positions 1 through 5. I have used the tow tune and the eco tune primarily, as I get older I enjoy cruising more than speeding. The truck does have the ability to really pull however in the higher tunes. Very clean tuning with almost no smoke except in tune 5 where it will smoke a little when getting after it. Truck has not been rodded, adult owned and driven always.



      Maintenance items completed...
      All completed within the last 6 months.
      Repeat drain and fills of both differentials with 500k mile synthetic delo dif fluid.
      Repeat drain and fill of transmission and allison filters using only transynd fluid. (Internal filter also change with the deep pan addition.)
      New oem gm radiator hoses and coolant filled drained and filled multiple times. Hyperlube racing coolant additive added on last fillup.
      New oem thermostats
      Brake fluid flushed twice, filled with Valvoline synthetic brake fluid.
      Power steering flushed twice, filled with blue line synthetic power steering fluid.
      Midas full alignment after lift kit installation.
      4 wheel tire balance.
      Full midas inspection showing everything in the good green category.
      New intermediate dorman problem solver steering shaft and bearing kit (fixes notorious oem clunking steering problem)
      New spicer lifetime greasable ujoints
      All zerks repeatedly greased with lucas red and tacky
      Recharged air conditioning.
      Turbo Vane cleaning done.
      Synthetic oils and oem filters, oem airdog liftpump filters.

      Truck is ready to go. Title in hand, lien through local bank which my wife works at and all title work can be done at bank on day of sale.
      I may consider delivery for a fee, depending on how far etc.
      I may consider a partial trade on a cheaper vehicle (under 5kish) with your cash offer. Would need to know all vehicle details.

      SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY PLEASE!!! I am working huge hours right now and don't have time for tire kickers. Vin available upon request. Truck is located in billings montana and can be viewed at almost any time. I will try to get more pictures up of the truck as time allows. First picture is current with topper, other pic just to show how it looks without topper.
