Automakers have had something of a falling out with diesel sedans amid the recent scandal, but Chevrolet isn’t one to back down. The American automaker recognizes potential when they see it, which is why we’ve been hearing rumors of a diesel-powered Cruze coming to the market over the past few months. Well, the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze diesel is now an official model following a pricing announcement.
The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze diesel sedan will start at $24,670 with a six-speed manual transmission. Drivers who opt for the nine-speed automatic transmission can expect to pay at least $26,270. The automaker hasn’t announced pricing for the Cruze hatchback just yet.
The first-generation Chevrolet Cruze diesel started at nearly $26,000, making the pricing of the latest model a welcome relief. All Chevrolet Cruze diesel models come with two years of SiriusXM satellite radio and OnStar with two years of 24 GB of data for the 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
The base Cruze diesel comes with the LT trim and Convenience package that adds an eight-way power driver’s seat, keyless entry, heated front seats, and more. That package normally tacks on $850 to the price of a conventional Cruze.
