Abstract

With this new turbo charged 1.6 l engine, GM Powertrain Europe presents another application from the mid-size gasoline engine family, internally called the Family 1 engine, which was first introduced in 2003. This third variant of the Family 1 Generation 3 architecture will be offered for the first time in the spring of 2006. It is combined with the M32 6-speed transmission in an Opel Meriva OPC as its top-of-the-line engine offering. Using an integrated exhaust manifold turbocharger, the engine reaches a maximum performance of 132 kW and a torque of 230 Nm.
