There were so many rumors talking about the 2013 Opel Junior, yet the latest report suggest that the 2013 Open or Vauxhall Junior would made use of a brand- new engine line up.
Well, based on what we read on an online automotive magazine, Automotive News the new engines were developed in conjunction with the SAIC and it will be most likely to be three- and four- cylinder units along with the displacements varies from 1.0 liters to 1.4 liters. The report stated that General Motor would utilize the engines in a range of models. On the other hand, SAIC would fit the engines into the Roewes and MGs.
Unfortunately, the automaker is still sealing its lips tidily related to the outputs will be produced by the units. However, if the reports can be trusted, the engines will be the Euro- 6 compliant and they will bring direct injection. Such engines should be able to return at least ten percent more fuel economy compared to that of the previous Opel.
General Motor also reported having a plan in introducing a new 1.6 liter diesel engine and a turbocharged 1.6 liter petrol engine maybe sometimes in the future. It is also said that a dual- clutch transmission may be possible and will be able for nearly 250 Nm or equal to 184 lb- ft of peak of torque.
Well, that’s all we got from the reports, further details on the new engine line- up may be unveiled later on in the upcoming weeks, so stay tune.
