The new generation of clean diesel cars, pickup trucks and SUVs is a fuel efficient and proven choice to meet your personal transportation needs. We're extremely optimistic about the U.S. diesel market this year and in 2018 because of the introduction of new diesels like the 52 mpg (highway) Chevy Cruze Diesel Sedan and Hatchback, the Chevy Equinox Diesel, the Ford F-150 diesel pickup, along with the Mazda CX-5 SKYACTIV-D SUV diesel. All of these new diesels will complement existing strongholds or fill voids in the marketplace for affordable, proven and fuel-efficient technologies.

Vehicle manufacturers and engine makers have invested billions of dollars in research and development to successfully meet the most aggressive emissions standards in the world. They continue to work closely and cooperatively with the Environmental Protection Agency, California Air Resources Board, international regulatory bodies, as well as environmental and other interest groups toward common goals.

The diesel engine is the most energy efficient internal combustion engine. It is a proven technology and its unique combination of efficiency, power, reliability, performance, low-emissions and suitability for using renewable fuels ensures a place for diesel technology to help meet a range of demands from personal transportation up to the needs of a global economy.
