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.

Picking out a Christmas tree that fits into your home and livens up the holidays is a high point of the season. While heading to the nearest tree farm and grabbing the first tree in sight sounds ideal, it could be disastrous for your holiday. Home damage and a dead tree are two possible outcomes that can come from a carelessly chosen tree, so here are a few tips to help you pick the best Christmas tree and avoid any major problems!
- Plan – Measure your ceiling height from the floor and take note of it. A tree that’s too tall could do some damage over the holiday season. Make sure there’s plenty of room around where the tree will go as well. Move any furniture before the tree arrives.
- Purchase – Before making a purchase, check the tree’s height to ensure it fits into your home without hitting the ceiling. Shake the tree and take note of how many needles hit the ground. If it’s quite a few, it might be best to find a different tree.
- Care – Taking care of the tree is arguably the easiest part of the whole ordeal. Start by setting the tree up in a tree stand that holds at least a gallon of water. Fill the stand often to ensure the tree gets all the water it needs. Doing so ensures fresh needles all season long.
Have a very merry Christmas from all of us here at Bradshaw Chevy Buick GMC Cadillac!
