Has anybody else seen this in person at the Detroit Auto Show? It looks great and really stands out. GM is not embarrassed about the car being a diesel like they were on the 2014-2015 model.

I didn't take a picture of it, and can't seem to find one online, but it's pretty big, on the right side of the trunklid, and fades from a darker to a lighter blue in the middle, and it very eye catching.

If anybody snapped a pic of it, please post it.

Wait wait wait - how the **** did I miss the CTD there? I had no clue one was even on the floor, only the engine cutaway.

I wasn't able to go to Detroit to the show. Would like to go to the Chicago show next month, never been to that show.

I, for one, like the TD badge.
It's actually noticeable without squinting this time.

On the first gens, I find it easier to look for a muffler, rather than trying to read the badge, to determine if the Cruze I am behind is an Eco or a TD.

I like it; however, I am not sure the General Public that hasn't had a diesel would know it is a diesel car?

Probably not, but they likely wouldn't know "TDI" referred to that either.

I tend to think that "TDI" is somewhat well known. "TD" seems a logical move for GM for branding of their diesels.

For those semi-aware that diesel cars exist, definitely. But some people are helplessly clueless, haha.
