When the upcoming 2016 Buick Envision compact SUV makes its debut on August 28th and eventually land on the market sometime in 2015, it will offer GM’s turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder Ecotec LTG engine as the range-topping powerplant.
The direct-injected motor, which we expect to be one of several high-tech four-cylinder Ecotecs offered in the new CUV, will feature a maximum power output of 191 kW (256 horsepower) and peak torque of 353 Nm (260 pound-feet).
The four-banger was named one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines in 2013, and is available in the Cadillac ATS Turbo, Buick Regal Turbo, and the base Cadillac CTS, among other GM vehicles.
The Buick Envision is expected to ride on GM’s all-new D2XX vehicle architecture and be available in both China and North America. It will likely serve as the replacement to the Opel Antara in Europe.
