The Verano Turbo will sprint from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 6.2 seconds, which is impressive for a car which will still do comfort quite well.
“The 2.0L turbo engine was designed for refinement, higher output capabilities and reduced noise,” said Amy Joss, Ecotec 2.0L assistant chief engineer. “The way it sounds, the power delivery and the refined character are all fitting of a luxury sedan with a fun side.”
It seems that America is learning the benefits of turbocharged four-cylinder engines in smaller cars. We don’t have the EPA efficiency numbers yet, but these are likely to show an improvement over 2.5-liter rivals.
“Buick’s engine strategy continues to be driven by intelligent performance,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick Marketing. “Four-cylinder engines, turbocharging and eAssist are all the right solutions for today’s market. With these advanced technologies, Buicks are more efficient without sacrificing their smooth, quiet character.”
