    2018 Cruze Hatchback Diesel

    Went to look at a hatchback (it was a 2017 LT with RS package) and took it for a drive yesterday to get a feel for the hatchback model. I loved everything about it. Very much looking forward to the Diesel release. From what I've read, it looks like it'll be out for the 2018 release and be available with a manual transmission. This is the car I've been saying for ages that I would love to have; now here it is.

    I figured I'd start this thread for others who are interested in the same or similar combination. We can post info about the model here and just share general knowledge we come across that we and others can reference off of. I talked with the salesman I bought my 2014 Diesel off of and he said he should have more information about it (for a Canadian release anyway) in the coming week or two. Another salesman there who was a diesel aficionado to say the least was able to provide some insight into it. He said a GM exhaust engineer was at the dealer and he was talking to him about it and the new engine coming out for 2018. It's going to be a 1.6L turbo whisper-quiet diesel engine that delivers power that will be pleasantly surprising to some.

    I'm looking forward to the package options for the 2018 release rather than being stuck with the premium model the 2014 Diesel was bound to. But in all honesty I'd probably go with a leather package anyway. The LT with the base interior wasn't really working for me.

    Has a price been mentioned for the diesel manual hatch? I think that will affect the decision to get one for many people.

    I assume the manual will be a six speed? And the auto will be the new nine speed?

    This is highly likely. I can't see it going any other way.

    It was just reported that the GMC Terrain diesel will have the 6 speed auto. Not sure if there are any implications for the Cruze.

    "GM's 1.6-liter diesel four will also be available, making 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque in this application. Both gas engines will be paired with nine-speed automatic transmissions, while the diesel gets a six-speed auto."

    Given that they have said the Equinox and Cruze with that engine both come with the 9 speed, as well as the 1.5T in the Terrain, I think someone got their facts wrong.

    Agreed.

    I can't wait until we at least get some facts about this **** thing. I'm okay with the wait, though, since it's likely just trying to make sure they have this thing nailed down if they are going to try to steal away burned VW owners.

    I don't think we will know for sure until we see one on a dealer's lot.

    I really don't understand the fascination for a manual diesel other than you like shifting. The mileage with a manual can't be much better (if at all) than an automatic transmission. Auto's are getting better and more efficient every year. I mean at 50+ mpg with my 14 CTD auto, I'm pretty darn happy never shifting.
