Also Releases Update on 6.8-Liter GM Engine Work

Michigan’s Crazy Diamond Performance says it’s received U.S. EPA approval of its compressed natural gas-fueled Chevrolet Cruze for the 2016 model year. Specifications for CDP’s “EcoDrive” upfit for the Chevy Cruze include an 8.5 gasoline gallon equivalent Type III cylinder, giving the vehicle a range of up to 320 highway miles.

Michigan’s Crazy Diamond hopes to bring a dedicated-CNG version of the Chevy Cruze to market this year.

CDP disclosed work on its dedicated-CNG version of the Chevy Cruze last year (F&F, July 14, 2014).

razy Diamond also said Tuesday that testing of its “TorqueDrive” 6.8-liter GM engine has shown an 11% increase in fuel economy over the OEM model, with “60 additional horsepower and 154 additional pound feet of torque.”

Crazy Diamond is developing the engine for CNG and propane autogas operation.
