Buick Verano Turbo

Buick developed the new 2013 Buick Verano Turbo, a model that sends the power to the wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission which offers a fuel consumption of 20 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. The standard Verano has a fuel consumption of the 21 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. The carmaker offers the Turbo version with the same engine as the 2013 Buick Regal GS, a direct-injection 4-cylinder, Ecotec 2.0-liter turbocharged engine capable of developing 250 horsepower and 260 lb. ft. of torque.

According to EPA, both the Regal GS and the Verano Turbo have the same 24 mpg fuel consumption even if the Verano produces 25 less horsepower and 35 less lb. ft. of torque in comparison with the Regal. Equipped with the Ecotec 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, the 2013 Buick Verano Turbo is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds. When the carmaker decides to launch it, the model will be available with a choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic one.
