    Will Gen 2 Cruze Diesel arrive in time for VW TDI owners to buy???

    If I were at GM I would be working my tail off to make sure that the 2nd Generation Cruze Diesel's are ready and in production in time to sell them to VW TDI owners that will be turning in their TDIs soon and looking for another diesel high MPG car to replace it with!!!

    Do you think GM will be able to have them on the lots in time???

    I would almost guarantee they are not sitting idle.

    Probably going through the last round of quadruple checks on the emissions tests, making sure someone can't exploit some random hole in the tuning to try and sue them, or some BS like that, while also finishing up the calibration and getting it all ready.

    I check every day, and I wouldn't be surprised for a fall unveiling - but I'd more than likely expect to see it debut at LA, since that's the next major US auto show. The Gen I CTD debuted at Chicago.

    I really hope GM goes after VW on this. It's a great opportunity. VW sold a lot of diesels in the US so the market is there, and I woudl imagine it's still there.

    All they have to do is let people know it exists, which they didn't do with the first gen.

    Absolutely. Advertise the living crap out of the car, and make it a point that it meets all emissions regulations without any kind of defeat device like "the other guys".

    When it comes up in conversation that we have a Cruze Diesel, 90% of people are blown away that such a thing exists.

    To me GM didn't do a thing to advertise the diesel Cruze. They would have sold way more it they did. I run into people every day that didn't know they exist.

    I saw a couple of Cruze Diesel ads when it first came out. White car - no soot.

    Two things: GM can't even keep a supplier solvent ( see other thread) and the very questionable reliability of the 1st Gen Diesel is surely going to kill sales of the Gen 2 whisper diesel.
