2014 Buick Verano will offer only turbocharged engines

Article by Christian A., on January 4, 2013

The 2014 Buick Verano will be powered by a new 1.6-liter turbo instead of the entry-level 2.4-liter Ecotec engine, new 1.6-liter turbo, according to the 2014 VIN cards of General Motors. The Verano will be equipped with a new power unit: a 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that features direct fuel injection and variable valve timing.

For the European market, GM will use the 1.6-liter Ecotec turbo that can deliver 192 hp (143 kW) and 170 lb-ft (230 Nm) of torque. This is an impressive move as the existing 2.4-liter in the entry-level 2013 Verano delivers 180 hp (134 kW) and 171 lb-ft (231 Nm) of torque. Because of the turbo, most of the torque will be available at about 1,900 rpm.

So far, no other significant revisions have been announced for the 2014 model year. It will be available with the newly presented Ecotec 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that powers the 2013 Regal GS too. When used in the 2013 Verano, it results to an output of 250 hp (186 kW) and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) of torque, enabling the car to accelerate from zero to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 6.2 seconds.
