The standard 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces a sporty 170 hp and 203 lb-ft of torque. The available 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine comes mated to the advanced nine-speed automatic transmission and offers a thrilling 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Both turbocharged engines earn up to an EPA-estimated 32 hwy mpg*.
Many automakers are shying away from diesel powertrains, but Chevrolet isn’t one of them! The new 1.6-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine boasts an impressive 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. Better yet, it even earns up to a GM-estimated 40 hwy mpg*.
