The diesel engine is expected to offer fuel efficiency in the hybrid range, somewhere around 40 mpg. The company also announced it will offer a nine-speed automatic transmission that increases efficiency and takes advantage of all the power in every shift range sometime this fall.

Chevy Owners Gobbling Up Data
Although in-vehicle Wi-Fi hasn’t been around for long, Chevy customers are gobbling up the data available with the OnStar 4G LTE hotspot. Chevrolet owners used more than 4 million gigabytes of streaming data for music, video and information in 2016, a fact that did not go unnoticed in the Chevrolet executive offices. “We have contractors bidding jobs in their Silverados, families streaming movies in their Suburbans and Malibus and everyone tapping into the cloud for music,” according to GM president Alan Batey. “With the most affordable unlimited 4G LTE data plan in the auto industry, the widest availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and new connected services like OnStar AtYourService, our momentum can only grow.” Chevy now offers an unlimited prepaid data plan for just $20 per month, letting customers stop using their expensive phone data streams as hotspots. The plan is across the entire Chevrolet lineup, which you can examine in great detail at Chapman Chevrolet.
Data Use Up 200 Percent
When comparing to 2015, the data usage in a Chevrolet was 200 percent higher in 2016. The last six months of 2016 showed as much usage as the previous 24 months combined. The entire year of data usage was the equivalent of 17.5 million video hours, or watching the movie “Frozen” approximately 8.75 million times. “We’re pleased to deliver this special unlimited data plan to Chevy owners,” said the president of AT&T’s IoT solutions division, Chris Penrose. “Accessing the Internet through AT&T’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi, passengers can now access all of their content and enjoy endless entertainment on the go.”
OnStar Standard on All Chevy Models
Peruse the lot at Chapman Chevrolet and you’ll find that the OnStar basic service comes standard on all new cars, trucks and SUVs. Aside from the basic plan, OnStar offers three different levels of service that can be purchased monthly or for a yearly discount.

Gives Range of 702 Miles on Single Tank
Although your passengers may gulp at the thought of driving more than 700 miles without a single bathroom break, that’s the distance now possible with the introduction of the Chevy Cruze Diesel Sedan. The new Cruze Diesel has an EPA-estimated highway figure of 52 mpg, which is more than any other non-electrified vehicle. “Chevrolet is dedicated to offering customers a wide range of propulsion options,” said Chevy director of marketing Steven Majoros. “We know there are customers looking for the right combination of fuel efficiency, driving dynamics, fuel type and more. With the EPA-estimated 52-mpg high Cruze Diesel Sedan, they can get it all.” The Chevy Cruze Diesel Sedan will be coming to Chapman Chevrolet soon. Stay in touch so you can be the first in line for a test drive.
Cruze Powered by Four-cylinder Diesel
The new Cruze Diesel features a 1.6L four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that delivers a certified 137 horsepower. More importantly, it also produces a powerful 240 pound-feet of torque, meaning you’ll have plenty of acceleration when it comes time to get on the freeway or get quickly around a slow-moving vehicle. The 52 mpg highway rating comes with the six-speed manual transmission, which also delivers an outstanding 30 mpg in the city. Choose the nine-speed automatic and the mileage drops slightly to 47 on the highway, but increases to 31 in the city. The starting price for the Chevy Cruze Diesel Sedan is just $24,670, lower than similarly equipped hybrids and much less than electric vehicles. A diesel hatchback will follow the release of the sedan in time for the 2018 model year.
Gas-powered Cruze Offers Enticing Options
If you want to save a few thousand and still get excellent gas mileage, the gas-powered Chevy Cruze hatchback and sedan are available now at Chapman Chevrolet. With a rating of 40 mpg on the highway, the gas-powered Cruze is still operating in hybrid territory but at a starting price under $17,000.
