US Chevrolets to Get Opel 1.6 Turbo
Another brilliant Opel engine is making its way to America. We’re talking about the four-cylinder 1.6-liter Ecotec turbo that comes with direct fuel injection and start/stop technology. The unit will most likely make about 180 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque.
Production will begin towards the end of the year at GM’s Hungary plant and we should see the engine being used in the next model year Malibu, Sonic or Cruze. It might even see service in the GMC Terrain.
This move should help GM come closer to achieving its CAFE targets.
