Buick is thinking of a diesel line for the US

As numbers show, Buick would be capable of selling more Encores that have as base the Mokka for the North American market. If only the unit was powered by a stronger engine and not the 1.4-liter found under the bonnet which is capable of generating 138 horsepower and which is now available. Different sources indicate that that carmaker is thinking of modifying some of the elements and improve the current situation. All these efforts indicate the fact that the company is trying to align the brand to the European side of Opel. How are they planning to do it? Well, the carmaker is thinking about offering its models with a diesel engine. There are models that already have the precise features, but there are some that do not. These are the Enclave SUV that does not have the Euro elements, the Verano and also the Regal sedans which are, for the moment, remaining with the original base specifications. Of course, equipping them with a diesel engine would not be something that hard to do, just because those basic elements make the cars stronger by burning oil. The engineers will probably equip all sedan units with a 2.0-liter engine that might be a diesel one, but not necessary. When it comes to the Encore, the model can take a 1.6-liter unit because of the short hood. Now, the carmaker has as option a new turbocharged 1.6-liter petrol unit that might make the name Encore, mean something, for a start. Introducing diesel units in the US would be a very clever move, but nothing is for sure, for the moment. The Europeans will get them for sure.
