What's the pedigree of that engine?
I believe it is a German design made in Austria. Even though it first appeared in Australia in the Australian built Cruze it is a newer design than the US engine. It has duel chain driven OH Cams and replaced the single belt driven OHC of the 2009-2011 Korean made Cruze. It is now also the only engine available in the Indian Chevy Cruze.

Some figures on it I was able to find.

Whoa! A few things jump out:
7.5 quarts of oil. I like that

VVT is something we don't yet have. I'm also intrigued to see the stroke/bore ratio is now square. Wonder why the change there.

Is that an aluminum block?

Thanks for digging that up.

Cast iron block, alloy head. Also redline is 4,500rpm.

Interesting that they shortened the stroke and reduced the redline. Usually, it works the other way.
Designed from scratch by a different team. Longer stroke better torque short stroke lower piston speed, both have different advantages.

Does the Australian Cruze Diesel have an overboost feature? On the North American Cruze, I believe it increases maximum torque from 264 ft/lbs to 280 ft/lbs for up to 10 seconds at a time.

No, it really doesn't need it as you never feel like you don't have enough power. I had 4 adults and holiday luggage in mine and overtook an 18 wheeler that was travelling at 90kph in a 100 zone on a country road. I found myself doing 140kph so easily it surprised me. The car is just nice to drive, I am hooked on diesel from now on.
