General Motors answer to Ford’s Ecoboost engine

General Motors answer to Ford’s Ecoboost engine

General Motors has announced the development of an all-aluminium turbocharged, direct injection, 1.0-litre, three cylinder petrol engine. The engine will be showcased at the Geneva Motor Show next month plonked in an Opel Adam. The engine was developed in Rüsselsheim, Germany, and will be part of the ‘ECOTEC’ family of engines from GM.

This 1.0-litre engine features variable valve timing, a counter-rotating balance shaft to minimise vibrations, an integrated exhaust manifold within the cylinder head, a low-inertia water-cooled turbocharger and a switchable water pump alongwith the start/stop function.

This engine will be available in two tunes in the Opel Adam, in 88.7bhp and 113.4bhp with the torque on tap, rated at 169Nm in both tunes. The ECOTEC engine with 88.7bhp will deliver 23.25 kmpl in European driving conditions. This engine will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission in the vehicle.

This new engine will be GM’s answer to Ford’s award winning Ecoboost engine. Chevrolet showed us the Adra concept at the recently concluded Auto Expo and this engine might surely make it under the hood of the Adra once the concept becomes a production model.
