Chevy Announces Diesel for Cruze

Is this the start of “One Chevrolet”? I mean, just as there is “One Ford,” with commonality here there and everywhere, the announcement by General Motors this morning that there will be a diesel available for the Chevy Cruze in calendar year 2013, makes me wonder: You can buy a 2.0-liter diesel in a Cruze in Europe right now, so with North America getting one, too. . . . Of course, you can also get a hatchback Cruze in Europe.
