2018 Opel Grandland X gets PSA’s new 1.5 liter diesel

The Opel Grandland X indeed has French roots, but we know that it also has taken some German lessons, especially now that Opel is positioned underneath PSA’s umbrella. Without a surprise, people from Rüsselsheim had just made an announcement regarding this.

Grandland X will now be powered by a 1.5 liter four cylinder turbodiesel that can be ordered from Peugeot 3008-based Grandland X, giving an output of 130 horsepower (96 kilowatts) and a maximum torque of 300 Newton metres (221 pound feet) which can be accessed from 1,750 rpm.

This engine could be paired with either of the two transmissions: a standard six speed manual transmission, that lets it burn 4.1 to 4.2 liters per 100 kilometers in the combined cycle, or an eight speed automatic transmission that burns a little less, at 3.9 to 4.0 liters for every 100 kilometers. The PSA-sourced mill now replaces the former 1.6 liter diesel, which offered less power (120 horsepower / 88 kilowatts), and used up more fuel (by 4 percent) too.

2018 Opel Grandland X now gets a new range-topping diesel model, Ultimate trim

Have you been thinking of getting your hands on a Grandland X crossover, but you hesitate because it isn’t powerful enough for you? Well, you always have the option to head to an aftermarket tuner to have it modified or you can opt for Opel’s new solution. You could get the flagship 2.0 liter diesel in the model’s engine lineup, paired exclusively with an eight-speed automatic gearbox for a price of €37,320.

Let us get into its major details. First of all, the new trim is able to generate 177 horsepower (130 kilowatts) at 3,750 rpm, as well as a peak torque of 295 pound-feet (400 Newton-metres) at low 2,000 rpm. So far, it acts as the automaker’s most powerful engine available for the Grandland X. For the sake of comparison, it has 47 horsepower (35 kilowatts) more than the current Grandland X with the 1.2 liter turbo gasoline unit that carries out 130 horsepower (96 kilowatts) and 169 pound-feet (230 Newton metres) of torque. That should be enough power to give the freedom-loving crossover all the power it needs.

If you are a speed lover, like many of us are, this upgrade should keep you satisfied. It can do the 0-62 mile per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) sprint in 9.1 seconds. But as an SUV owner, what you would really prioritize is the maximum trailer load, and this model can carry up to two tons. When it comes to efficiency, the NEDC measured that the vehicles need about 4.8 to 4.9 liters for every 100 kilometers (48-49 miles per gallon) on average, combined with corresponding CO2 emissions of 126-128 grams CO2 per kilometer.

The tuning kit it provides an additional 25hp (19kW) output on both diesel and gas engines. Irmscher can adjust the ride height by at least 30mm or 1.2 inches down for those who want their crossovers to look a little bit closer to the ground.

Opel to unveil Insignia GSi plus four other models at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show

Now under PSA, German carmaker Opel will make its presence ultimately felt at the upcoming 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Barely three weeks before the 67th International Frankfurt Motor Show starts, Opel already disclosed its lineup of new vehicles that will make their world debut in Frankfurt.

According to Opel, its presence in the Frankfurt Motor Show will be marked by unveiling new offerings that will signify the brand’s new credo “The future is everyone’s.” These vehicles include: the Opel Grandland X sports utility vehicle; the Opel Insignia GSi sporty limousine or station wagon; the Opel Insignia Country Tourer rugged all-rounder; the Opel Vivaro Tourer passenger van; and another version of the Vivaro space shuttle. These new vehicles would be displayed at the Opel Stand D09 in Hall 8.0 of Messe Frankfurt.

Opel hopes to capture a chunk of the booming SUV market with the new Opel Grandland X. Measuring just 4.48 meters and being impressively equipped, the new Grandland X will be the third member of the Opel X, competing in the compact SUV segment. Designed to comfortably accommodate up to five people, the Grandland X would feature an off-road appearance, an elevated seating position, and good all-round visibility as well as be fitted with a host of top technologies that includes Advanced Park Assist, Automatic Cruise Control, Automatic Emergency Braking, Driver Drowsiness Alert, and the 360-degree camera. It also features Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL) LED headlamps and the optional electronic IntelliGrip traction for best traction and stable handling on snow, mud, sand or wet surfaces.

Earlier this year, German automaker Opel revealed their largest SUV to date, the Grandland X as it made its debut online. The SUV, a European exclusive, comes in a sophisticated new look and shares some of its genes with the Peugeot 3008.

Having said that, the Opel has pretty impressive measurements of 14.7 feet (4.48 meters) with a cargo space of 18 cubic-feet (514 liters) to fit all your extra large luggage. That’s very close to the Peugeot’s 18.3 cubic-feet (520 liter) cargo capacity and its length of 14.5 feet (4.42 metres). With these specs, you're probably expecting a hefty price tag that comes with it. The good news is that the Opel Grandland X actually costs less than its Peugeot counterpart, with a starting price of €23,700 (£20,890) including VAT versus the €25,995 (£22,910) Peugeot.

That price comes with a 1.2 liter turbocharged gas engine that can carry out 130 horsepower (96 kilowatts) and 169 pound-feet (230 Newton-metres) of torque. If you are not keen on getting a gasoline engine, you can opt for the 1.6 liter diesel option producing 120 horsepower (88 kW), and 221 pound-feet (300 Nm) of torque for a starting price of €26,500 (£23,335). But if neither of those options are up to your liking, then that is not a problem as Opel is developing a variant that has "more power" that should be out in the market soon.

The new and improved Opel Grandland X is out, and this large SUV is something the European market did not know they would need. Now measuring at 14.7 feet (4.48 meters) in length, the three-row Grandland X fits five passengers comfortably and has a total cargo capacity of 18 cubic-feet (514 liters). The question now is if there will be a performance variant.

X-Tomi Design artists have come up with an OPC (Opel Performance Center) variant for the Grandland X SUV - something a lot of us wouldn’t expect. And it looks pretty good. You might remember OPC from the Astra to the Insignia. It has a bolder face with its distinctive grille and new vents. It comes with a signature OPC-designed wheels wrapped with metal sheet. Overall, the body has been lowered significantly. Equipped with the new Adaptive Forward Lighting LED headlamps, the SUV ensures a more comfortable drive in the dark with brighter driving light and cornering light.

The Grandland X stands for adventure, independence, and abundance - with technology that makes it safe and fun. Karl Thomas Neumann, Opel CEO says that they will ensure that the SUV gets an “I want it” factor.

German carmaker Opel – now a part of the PSA Group – is introducing its newest X model that will compete in the compact class (C-segment). The new 2018 Opel Grandland X marks another installment of the carmaker’s “7 in 17” product offensive this year.

The introduction of the new Opel Grandland X follows the official reveal of the Opel Crossland X at the Geneva Motor Motor Show in March. It is the third member of the carmaker’s Opel X family, next to Crossland X and Mokka X. However, since it competes in the C-segment, it is around 20 centimeters longer than the Crossland X and Mokka X. Opel is bound to officially reveal the Grandland X at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2017. Despite revealing the looks and features of the Grandland X, Opel has yet to unfurl complete details of the compact utility vehicle, and it intends to do that in Frankfurt, Germany.

The positioning of the new Opel Grandland X actually makes it a real rival to the Peugeot 3008. Interestingly, the Opel Grandland X shares its underpinnings with the Peugeot 3008, thanks mainly to a collaboration agreement signed between Opel and the PSA Group in 2012. Nonetheless, the Opel Grandland X looks nothing like the Peugeot 3008. It is also laden with a wide array of new features and equipment that you would expect from a new Opel offering.
