The new Chevrolet Cruze is capable of achieving as much as 42 miles per gallon on the highway. This feat was not only achieved through the use of an advanced Ecotec four-cylidner engine, but innovative technology like the Cruze’s deceleration fuel cutoff (DFCO) helps the compact car maximize MPG even further.

“The Cruze is packed with fuel-saving technologies,” said Kai Loos, the development systems manager for the Cruze’s 1.4-liter turbocharged engine. “These types of cost-effective technologies allow Chevrolet to offer customers a vehicle that achieves hybrid-like efficiency without the cost of the hybrid technology.”
