What Can You Expect from the 2016 Buick Verano Performance Specs?

2016-Buick-VeranoThe 2016 Buick Verano is a small car that offers Troy and Dayton drivers big performance and exciting fuel economy. To help demonstrate what an impressive value the Verano is, and why it should be at the top of the list for serious small luxury car buyers, the experts at Dave Arbogast Buick GMC have created a comprehensive index of the features that make the Verano so dynamic. We think it will erase any doubts that Buick is the automaker to beat.

Performance Specs

2016 Buick Verano side mirrorBuick offers two very capable engines and three transmission options to power the 2016 Verano:

  • 2.4L The base engine is a 2.4L DOHC 4-cylinder ECOTEC engine with Spark Ignition Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing. This motor is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission and is capable of generating 180 hp and 171 lb.-ft. of torque.

  • 2.0L For those looking for a boost in their morning commute, Buick offers the 2.0L turbocharged DOHC 4-cylinder engine with Spark Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing. This powerplant can be mated with either a 6-speed manual transmission or a specially designed 6-speed automatic transmission for a maximum output of 250 hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque.

Buick Verano Fuel Economy

Both engines scored well in recent EPA testing and can provide drivers with an economical ride that gives them plenty of drive time before stopping for gas:

  • 2.4L The 2.4L 4-cylinder engine delivered 21 mpg/city and 32 mpg/highway fuel efficiency in testing. With a 15.6-gallon fuel tank this gave drivers as much as 499.2 miles of travel between fuel-ups.

  • 2.0L The turbocharged powerplant offered drivers up to 21 mpg/city and 30 mpg/highway fuel efficiency, which meant up to 468 miles of highway travel between service station stops.

Other Performance Features

Powerful, economical engines are just the beginning. The 2016 Buick Verano also provides Troy and Dayton drivers with a comfortable, responsive ride that delivers safety and performance in equal measure:

  • Reactive Braking 4-wheel ABS brakes with Brake Assist are standard and provide not only advanced stopping power, but increased control as well.

  • Electronic Power Steering The standard electronic non-variable ratio power steering provides the driver with effortless control of the Verano, even during emergency maneuvers.

  • MacPherson Struts The independent front suspension utilizes MacPherson struts with aluminum control arms and hydraulic bushings for a smoother, more receptive ride.

  • Z-Link Rear Suspension Buick has equipped the Verano with a Watts Z-link rear suspension for enhanced stability and a more even trip.

  • StabiliTrak The standard StabiliTrak system helps drivers maintain control of the vehicle in all driving conditions, particularly those that require additional traction such as when skidding or sliding.

  • Tight Turns The Verano’s advanced steering and suspension system guarantees tighter turns and allows the small car to execute tight maneuvers with a turning radius of just 36 feet.
