Diesel Power Available in Cruze and Equinox

If you think the only diesels on the road are the semi-trucks or large pickups bellowing thick black smoke, it’s time to think again. Chevrolet has mastered the efficiency of the diesel in a compact package that now powers certain models of the Chevy Equinox, Cruze and Cruze hatchback. With decades of history developing diesel engines, Chevy now has more products with diesel power for sale than any other automaker. Diesel engines deliver unbelievable efficiency, plenty of power and driving dynamics that put the fun back in your daily ride. See how a diesel fits into your transportation needs when you take a test drive at Freeway Chevrolet in Chandler.

Leave Home with Superior Range

With driving range up to 702 miles while scoring 52 mpg, chances are your hunger or need for a bathroom break will kick in long before you need to refuel in the Chevy Cruze. The larger Equinox does almost as well, with a driving range of 592 miles while earning 39 mpg. The Cruze delivers the best highway fuel mileage of any non-electrified vehicle in America, while the Equinox diesel has the best mileage in its class. Aside from fuel mileage, another advantage to driving a diesel is the high torque at very low engine revolutions per minute. That results in quicker response times when you step on the accelerator, which is handy for having fun as well as calling on power when needed to get out of dangerous situations.

New Diesels Quieter and Cleaner

You don’t have to worry about annoying the rest of the school carpool crowd when driving a Cruze or Equinox diesel. Modern engineering has created a much quieter and more efficient motor than diesels of the past. An advanced combustion system and timing system has created an engine without the annoying rattle and shake of old diesel motors. A variety of acoustic packages around the engine also help to reduce noise, as does an advanced muffler system. Europeans have nicknamed this new motor the “whisper diesel” due to its relatively quiet performance.

Diesel the Only Difference

The only difference you’ll notice when purchasing the Chevy Equinox or Cruze diesel vehicles is the increased efficiency and the need to use a different pump at the fuel station. Otherwise, the vehicles look the same as the gas models with a sporty design built for today’s driver. Compatibility with all models of smartphone, rolling Wi-Fi and an infotainment system built to rock your daily drive are all part of the package. If you haven’t considered a diesel option before, perhaps now is the time to head over to Freeway Chevrolet and see how a new Chevy Cruze or Equinox can work with your lifestyle.
