2013 Buick Verano Turbo

Buick brings a hot new 2013 Verano Turbo

Buick has announced the 2013 Verano will be packing a new 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 250 horsepower.

Buick is getting into the performance ballgame and has announced that the 2013 Verano will come with an all-new performance turbocharged engine that will be producing 250 horsepower and 260 lb. ft. of torque. GM’s new engine called the Ecotec, will be a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine using the latest direct-injection technology. In addition to the hot new Ecotec turbo, Buick will be offering a six-speed standard transmission for a little extra excitement.

The hot new turbo sedan from Buick will have an estimated 0-60 time of 6.2 seconds making it on par with the new Ford Focus ST turbo that has 252 horsepower. Buick says the performance will be the same with the six-speed manual as the automatic with six gears. The announcement of the new 2013 Buick Verano Turbo is the most excitement we’ve had out of Buick in a long time. The brand certainly hasn’t been associated with performance in the past.

Small turbocharged engines are the future
