Buick Adds 250-Horsepower Turbo to 2013 Verano Lineup
Buick adds more power to the Verano lineup with a turbo model for 2013. The luxury sedan will have an Ecotec 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with direct injection and continuously variable valve timing that produces 250-horsepower, 260 lb.-ft. of torque and zooms from 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds.
“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.”
Fuel economy numbers are not final, but the Verano Turbo is expected to be in line with Buick’s other turbocharged models. Pricing will be announced closer to the start of production in late 2012.
