The Vehicle Showcase drew many with a vested interest in what’s new in biodiesel fleets. General Motors showcased their new 2014 Chevy Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel, the first light duty passenger car in the U.S. to be fully approved for use with B20 biodiesel blends nationwide. The 2014 Chevy Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel was the winner of the biodiesel industry’s coveted Innovation Award for 2014.
Chevrolet/GM’s Chris Farmer is the Manager of After Sales for Chevrolet Southern California and spoke on behalf of their showcased vehicle taking attendees through each of the car’s specs.
“A couple of key takeaways about the Chevy Cruz Diesel is it gets the best highway fuel economy of any non-hybrid passenger car in America – 46 MPG. The vehicle also has segment leading torque and horsepower. It has a 151 horsepower and 264 foot pounds of torque. It comes standard with Chevorlet’s Mylink Infotainment System, which is very easy to use. The vehicle is available for right around $26,000.”
