What say you? Do you think the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze diesel has what it takes to become a big player in the North American market? Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
If the diesel Cruze is priced right, it should do well in NA. Its biggest competitor is the VW Jetta TDI, which is doing very well in NA. MPG between the two is about the same so the advantage the Cruze has over the Jetta is the GM diesel has a timing chain whereas the VW has a timing belt. Personally, I'd love to see the 2.0-liter GM diesel engine in the upcoming Colorado or Canyon pickup truck because it could provide good MPG and low-end torque.
