The 2017 Cruze Diesel!

Attention St. Louis drivers: it's time to take a road trip in the 2017 Cruze Diesel Sedan! This vehicle offers an EPA-estimated highway mileage of 52 MPG when equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, making this the highest highway fuel economy of any non-hybrid/non-EV in America.

"Chevrolet is dedicated to offering customers a wide range of propulsion options. We know there are customers looking for the right combination of fuel efficiency, driving dynamic, fuel type and more. With the EPA-estimated 52-mpg highway Cruze Diesel Sedan, they can get it all," said Steven Majoros, Director of Chevrolet Marketing.

This vehicle will feature a new Ecotec 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine that offers a SAE-certified 137 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. The 2017 manual Cruze even beats the fuel-efficient Prius by 2mpg! The six-speed manual Cruze Diesel gets an EPA-estimated mileage of 30 mpg in the city, resulting in 37 mpg combined, while the nine-speed automatic achieves 47 highway mpg and 31 city mpg, which results in 37 mpg combined.

Your trip will be well equipped with a variety of technology features, thanks to this Cruze. These features include available 4G LTE connectivity, built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay which will be compatible through Chevrolet MyLink.

The 2017 Cruze Diesel Sedan starts at $24,670 (not including $875 destination charge). Later this year the 2018 Cruze Diesel Hatch will be available for purchase! Visit us at Jim Butler Chevrolet for more information!

Winter Weather Driving Tips

Thanks to our good old friend Phil it looks like we have a few more weeks of winter in store! Chevrolet is here to keep you and your family safe when navigating wintery roads. St. Louis drivers can prepare for these conditions by following these simple tips:

1.    Prior to driving clear your car of snow and ice so you can see properly
2.     Ensure your tires and battery are in good shape
3.     Carry along kitty litter just in case you get stuck
4.     Don’t drive with bulky clothing to insure you have complete mobility
5.     Keep an appropriate pair of driving shoes in your vehicle so you can gauge how much pressure you are placing on your pedals
6.     Turn your heat down so you do not become drowsy
7.     Be aware of the outside temperature. The most dangerous temperature range is between 24-34 degrees.
8.     Be aware of your traction control! If you are on ice and snow you will have less traction, making it more difficult to stop at times. Slow it down, break early, and be aware of your surroundings.

Remember: If you do not have to drive, don’t! We also recommend you take your car in for service to make sure it is running like new for any weather that comes your way! Stop by Jim Butler Chevrolet and get your vehicle inspected today!
