The first product of GM ever built in China, the Buick new Regal 2.0 Turbo, which will be offered with a turbocharged powerplant, is making its world introduction at the 2009 Shanghai Auto Show. The car will come with three powerplant options. GM China says that coming out with cars equipped with turbocharged powerplants is part of their commitment in the ongoing improvement of their customer choices in the Chinese auto market.

The carmaker claims that their turbocharged powertrain comes with high potency and fuel efficiency with reduced emssions. This is a move forward as GM aims to enhance its overall efficiency in its product lineup in the domestic market. The New Regal intermediate sedan, an advanced GM produce, was released to the Chinese market last December.

It is patterned after the new global vehicle architecture designed by GM in Europe in collaboration with GM design and engineering teams around the world, together with Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (PATAC) in Shanghai.

Besides high-efficiency powertrains, it also provides refined design, superior safety and unparalleled skill.The current-generation 2.0 liter Turbo Direct Injection powerplant comes with two overhead camshafts, four valves for each cylinder, and common rail, multiple fuel direct injection, along with a variable geometry turbocharger for quick throttle reaction at low engine speeds.

It incorporates maximum power output of 162kW (220hp) achieved at 5,300rpm and maximum torque of 350Nm at 2,000-4,000 rpm. The acceleration rate is 0-100km/h in 7.8 seconds, making it the most potent turbocharged powerplant on the market at the present time. The fuel economy of the powerplant is excellent and it is equipped with a maintenance-free diesel particulate filter as part of its standard equipment.

The engine satisfactorily meets the emission standard of advanced Euro V.Shanghai GM also offers 2.0 liter and 2.4 liter ECOTEC powerplants, which are named one of the top-ten powerplants on the planet. The 2.0 liter engine has a maximum power output of 108kW at 6,200rpm and a peak torque of 190Nm at 4,600rpm. It can sprint from standstill 100km/h in 11.4 seconds and hits a ceiling speed of 197km/h.
