General Motors revealed the next-generation Ecotec engines for China, which bring greater fuel efficiency and performance.
The two new engines were developed using GM’s global engine architecture. The first is a 1.0-liter turbocharged engine that makes 123 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque, and the second is a 1.3-liter turbocharged engine that produces 161 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. Compared to the current engines that power the Buick Excelle GT, these engines are 10 percent more fuel efficient.
Diving into greater details, the engines feature dual-port injection, boast a redesigned combustion chamber, and engineers put the engines through nearly four million miles of testing.
