GM to offer range of diesel vehicles in U.S.

DETROIT General Motors Corp. plans to introduce a variety of diesel-powered vehicles in the United States, Vice Chairman Bob Lutz said yesterday in a video conference posted on GM s FastLane blog.

He said GM will offer cars, sport-utility vehicles, and crossover SUVs with diesel engines, which are now available only on some large vans, heavy-duty pickups, and medium-duty trucks.

Selling more vehicles with diesel engines would help GM meet possible increases in U.S. fuel-economy rules. Engines that burn diesel generally are more fuel-efficient than gasoline models.
