Rumor: 2014 Chevy Volt to contain 2.0-liter turbo engine
Consumers seeking more power than the Chevrolet Volt’s current 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine may be in luck, because leaked documents indicate that an all-new 2.0-liter turbo engine may be available on the 2014 model, according to InsideEVs. The news surfaces just three days after Chevy released the details of the 2013 Volt model.
Chevy Volt’s current 1.4-liter engine and electric drivetrain produces just 149 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. If the leaked rumors are true, customers could see considerable increases in performance. In fact, the 2.0-liter engine could produce up to as much twice the power of the 2012 Volt’s engine. Despite the engine upgrade, many Volt customers will likely be attracted to the EV’s fuel economy rather than it’s engine power. With that said, eco-friendly drivers in search of a livelier engine should be pleased.
