The "new" (in europe) 1.7L turbo diesel has the promised MPG numbers but is yet unproven, while the "current / old" 2.0L turbo diesel has a proven reliability and reputation, but it's MPG numbers aren't UP to what GM is promising. My guess it'll come down to whichever of the two is easiest to certify to the new, more stringent, EPA & CARB emission requirements.

Insiders at Lordstown say it is a 2.0L CDi diesel, retuned for EPA (and CARB) emissions.

...according to Lordstown 'insiders' they're (GM) already ramping up for August production of the 2013 Eco-D (diesel) Cruzes.

...pre-production this August, full production not until 2Q 2013, thus making the ECO-D Cruze technically a 2013˝ model year vehicle.

...see CruzeForumz posting: 2013˝ for ECO-D Cruzes

MPG. 50 NONSENSE: I have the Cruze/Daewoo Lacetti 2.0 VCDI auto for past two years and current combined mpg Town & Highway over the last two tankfuls of Shell V power Diesel got me 27.8 mpg although inaccurate mpg Display showed up to 44 mpg. 50 mpg is a LIE.

...whether it's "propaganda" or just "marketing-hype," GM is still touting 50 MPG from an automatic ECO-diesel for the EPA highway test...we'll see.
