I didn't know what make of diesel engine they put in the Cruze. I googled it, but of course, there's never a mention of just what engine it is- just that its very wonderful in every way. I called the local dealer, and spoke to Dufus, one of their salespeople. He thought it was a Chevrolet, and wouldn't be dissuaded. Even got a little condescending with me, for my being so ill informed. I predict great things for Dufus in the car sales business- lots of enthusiasm, with little knowledge to slow things up.
So I guess its a Fiat? If its anything like those they put in the Fiat Olivers back in the day, should be pretty good.
