    The Chrysler 300 versus a verano turbo cross shop is pretty wide ranging.

    Well, it looks like the turbo model is a no-go for 2014 my. All info points to still having the old 2.4 in the Verano. I don't worry about long term reliability issues with the turbos--but I am a bit down on them due to how smooth they are and the real world gas mileage they get.

    It now has been over a month and a half since this thread started...and in the initial post, it was written that it isn't sure if the vehicle is for sure getting the 1.6t as a base engine, or if someone just entered the wrong vehicle code. So, my question is, in the last month and a half, has there been any confirmation that the 1.6t is coming this fall to the Verano?

    Who in their right mind would try to tow with a 1.4T in a Buick?

    In fact, GM has flat-out told dealers that Encore is not meant to and was never intended to have any towing capabilities whatsoever.

I was apprehensive about the car (2 year lease, nice deal w/ the maint incl), but now understand the draw to people like me with commutes but who don't like being stuck in a penalty box. MORE power would only make the car better than it already is.
    If your cruising at 100MPH why would a car be out of breath? Steady state speed any car should be okay....? It's when you accelerate HARD that you are really pushing the engine to perform.

    It seems that it depends on where you are reading as to whether the 1.6T coming to the Verano is the old one or the new one. I sure hope it's the new one. Better h.p., much more torque and better fuel economy. It would be a huge mistake to use the old one. I'm also hoping they bring over the GTC and make the new 1.6T the base engine.

    I can't see GM using the OLD 1.6 Turbo for the Verano, it has to be getting the NEW 1.6T. As avdberg pointed out it, the NEW 1.6T makes 170/192, 170/207, or 197/221. Hopefully the Buick will get the 197/221 version. And all three versions have Stop/Start witch improve MPG by 13% vs the OLD 1.6T and most likely provide even larger fuel savings vs the 2.4L

    The Zafira Tourer seems to be the first one to get the new SIDI 1,6 l engine plus the new 1,6 l diesel engine as well.
    The newest pricelists now mention those engines. You can order them, but delivery isn't before March.
    The 1,6 SIDI delivers 125kW/170hp and 260Nm (MT6) or 280Nm (AT6). The 1,6 CDTI delivers 99kW/135hp and 320Nm.
    (260/280/320 Nm = 192/207/236 lbft)
    In earlier press info GM gives power rating as high as 200hp and torquefigures up to 236 lbft, so very promising.

    As far as fuel consumption concerns: the CO2 figure goes up from 144 gr/km to 154 gr/km compared to the 1,4 l 140hp version, so an increase with 7%, but you get a much nicer engine and much livelier car.
