Vauxhall Motors have announced that they plan to release three new engines over the next 12 months to replace their existing core line up. This means that the engines are likely to take the place of existing mass-produced counterparts in vehicles such as the Vauxhall Astra and the Vauxhall Insignia.
Leading the new line of engines will be a turbo charged 1.6 litre petrol addition that will produce up to 197 BHP amongst other outputs. The engine will also feature start stop technology in order to reduce emissions by up to 13% and reinforce Vauxhall’s aim of having one of the most fuel efficient car ranges.
The Four cylinder turbo engine will have at least 20 BHP over its predecessor, while saving on CO2 emissions. Vauxhall have also said that it will be quieter than the current range. The new engines include a 2.0 litre turbo-charged replacement for the VXR’s, which will produce 276 BHP.
More details will be released on the new range of new diesel and petrol engines as they’re launched over the coming 12 months.
