2012 Buick Regal GS: 270 hp supercharged engine
The exclusive engine supercharged Ecotec 2.0L offers superior acceleration in those cars imported
The Buick Regal GS 2012, which arrives in dealerships this fall, has been certified by the SAE as deployant power of 270 hp (201 kW) and torque of 295 lb-ft (400 Nm), and proposing an acceleration from 0 to 96 km / h in 6.7 seconds. The Regal GS will be produced at the Oshawa Assembly Plant, the Award-Winning GM plant.
The exclusive engine supercharged Ecotec 2.0L four-cylinder direct injection Regal GS offers a higher torque to the Acura TSX V6, Audi A4 S line Sport, Lexus IS 250 and Volvo S60 T5. Torque is the rotational force that allows a vehicle to drive, and that's what the driver feels when acceleration.
"The Regal GS with 2.0L supercharged engine deploys the highest power than any GM vehicle ever offered, and 135 hp power per liter is the most dense to have been certified by the SAE Power, said Mike Anderson , global chief engineer of the Ecotec engine and program director. We combine direct injection and variable valve timing on supercharged engines since 2006, and there is no doubt that the Regal GS turbo offers the responsiveness and acceleration of some V6 engines, while allowing fuel savings of a four-cylinder. "
The Ecotec 2.0 L turbo engine offers among other direct injection, variable valve timing, forged steel crankshaft, a twin-scroll turbocharger and an efficient intercooler. Crete torque of 295 lb-ft is reached only 2,400 rev / min. In fact, 95 percent of peak torque is available between 2,300 and 4,900 rev / min.
The engine is paired GS serial has a six-speed automatic transmission, and fuel consumption rating is 7.1 L/100 km on the highway. A six-speed automatic transmission will be proposed subsequently. The powertrain of the GS is protected by a five year warranty or 160 km.
Interactive control technology driving increases the attractiveness of the Regal GS and offers an improved stability. The driver can choose between three driving modes that modify the settings of the suspension, throttle and steering sensitivity of a variable assistance. GS mode optimizes the behavior of the car for a sporty driving style, firming the suspension and making it more responsive steering. The normal or default, suitable for everyday driving. The sport mode provides a level of performance that lies between those of normal and GS.
The Regal GS is based on an independent suspension on all four wheels which is distinguished by the use of high performance power legs (HiPerStrut) to the front axle. Legs high performance strength allow to reduce torque steer and maintain negative camber during cornering to preserve the vital contact between the tires and the roadway. The driver thus benefits from increased adherence, better cornering performance and a handling, a maneuverability and a IMPROVED reactivity.
The independent rear suspension has four arms is studied to reduce to a minimum the adverse effects of toe and camber during aggressive maneuvers in order to preserve stability. Shock absorbers front and rear drivers are computer to ensure continuous adaptation of their damping capacity in real time and uniform smooth ride despite variations in coating and road profile. The driver can also select a sportier dampers parametrage thanks to Sport and GS modes.
The braking power is ensured by four disc brakes large dowries four large diameter Brembo brake calipers with four pistons for a feeling of optimal control. The ABS system has four channels series is optimized to reduce braking distance on roads of varying quality and condition. The Regal GS is also equipped with series of control system StabiliTrak stability, which includes traction control integrale.
GS is also sportier by posture, thanks to a ground clearance lowered relative to other models and radical alloy wheels 19 inch 5 double spokes pavement all-season tires (polished alloy wheels 20 inch 5 double spokes with optional high-performance tires).
