Honeywell Turbochargers Help Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel Post Industry-Best 46 MPG In Highway Driving

New diesel offering uses turbocharging solution to reach 46 mpg in highway driving, according to the company.

PLYMOUTH, Mich. — Honeywell turbochargers are a vital component of the soon-to-be-released 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel that will get an industry-best 46 mpg in highway driving, setting the bar higher for fuel efficiency and emissions control, according to the company.

As revealed at the Chicago Auto Show, the Cruze Diesel will become the manufacturer’s first clean-diesel passenger car effort since the Chevette came in a diesel option in 1985. Honeywell turbochargers will allow the 2.0-liter diesel powerplant to make 148 horsepower and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 9 seconds, while still providing highway fuel mileage that is the best of any non-hybrid car on the market, the company says.

"At Honeywell, we never stop working with manufacturers to optimize our turbocharging solutions no matter what the application," said Tony Schultz, Honeywell Turbo Technologies vice president of the Americas. "In this case, we worked with Chevrolet even after the unveiling and continued to find ways to increase fuel mileage and performance from initial estimates."

The Cruze Diesel was anticipated to get slightly more than 40 mpg in highway driving at its launch in Chicago, but Honeywell’s participation with the manufacturer helped discover improvements that boosted the final estimate to 46 mpg. That mileage will allow Cruze Diesel owners to cover nearly 700 miles in highway driving on a single tank of fuel. In addition, the Honeywell turbocharger in the Cruze Diesel will provide an overboost feature that will give drivers added acceleration when conditions demand a quick response in traffic.

The addition of the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel expands a blossoming market of small, ultra-efficient turbocharged engines in passenger cars. Honeywell is providing turbocharged solutions for a U.S. market that anticipates sales of passenger cars with turbocharged diesel engines surpassing 1 million per year by 2017. According to data compiled by the Diesel Technology Forum, diesel car and SUV registrations have already increased by more than 24 percent from 2010 through the end of 2012.
