There is good news for purists who are fans of the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze as we have heard that the new Cruze is going to be offered in diesel in the US and this applies to the hatchback along with the sedan version and it is coming in automatic and manual transmission.
So this is great news as there is going to be a diesel hatchback version of the Chevrolet Cruze available in the US once again. On the downside is the fact that the vehicle is only available with front-wheel drive, but this shouldn’t be too big of a surprise as an all-wheel was never really going to be on the cards.
Thanks to the automatic transmission we are expecting the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze to offer up fuel economy that is great and it should be around 50mpg when driving out on the highway.
Volkswagen caused a scandal among diesel cars and they are not selling diesels over in the US for some time, so the 2018 Chevrolet Cruz should be able to take full advantage of this in the hatchback with manual gears.
