Silver Cruze WheelsIt doesn’t matter how much a gallon of gas costs, you still spend money month in and month out on fuel. If you had a vehicle that was built to be as efficient as possible while still being powerful enough to feel fun and safe, you could slash your bills without having to make any compromises. The 2015 Chevy Cruze mpg is not just impressive compared to other cars in its segment, it’s impressive by any standard.

Three Efficient Powertrains Available

The Cruze is available with three distinct powertrain options. Each is fuel efficient, which means that you can focus more on the kind of driving experience you prefer. Plus, the Cruze is one of the only small cars on the market available with a diesel engine. Diesel engines are known for blending exceptional efficiency with huge amounts of torque.

  • 1.8L Four-Cylinder: The L and LS trims are powered by a 1.8L four-cylinder that puts out 138 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque while delivering 22 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.
  • Turbo 1.4L Four-Cylinder: The LT, LTZ, and Eco trims are powered by a turbocharged 1.4L V-4 that puts out 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque while delivering 26 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway.
  • 2.0L Four-Cylinder Diesel: The Cruze diesel has a 2.0L four-cylinder diesel engine that puts out 151 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque while delivering 27 mpg in the city and 46 mpg on the highway.

Enhancements for Extra Efficiency

The diesel powertrain has the highest 2015 Chevy Cruze mpg rating, but if you are hesitant to buy a vehicle that runs on diesel, the Cruze Eco trim is your next best bet. It has the same turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder as the LT and LTZ trims, but also comes with ultra-low rolling resistance tires, lightweight wheels, a rear spoiler, and a lower front grille. All of these enhancements are designed to make the vehicle lighter and more aerodynamic, and more efficient as a result. The 2015 Chevy Cruze mpg for this trim is rated at an impressive 28 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway.
