General Motors Co.

is hoping to attract disaffected Volkswagen AG diesel customers with a new turbodiesel version of its 2018 Chevrolet Equinox crossover and diesel versions of its Chevrolet Cruze and new Cruze Hatchback.

The Detroit automaker’s bet on diesel comes, though, as sales have slowed in the U.S. due to Volkswagen’s costly exhaust emissions cheating scandal, now one year old.

GM announced Tuesday that the redesigned Cruze Hatchback would be available with diesel power for the 2018 model year. It should hit showrooms sometime around the third quarter of next year, and a diesel variant of the Cruze sedan will be re-introduced early next year. Miles-per-gallon estimates haven’t been released for either car.
