GM drops turbo-four engine from Chevy Traverse

GM drops turbo-four engine from Chevy Traverse

GM has quietly discontinued the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine found as an option in the Chevrolet Traverse, leaving the 3.6-liter V6 as the lone engine for the midsize SUV. The news comes via GM Authority, which says the change was effective for the mid-2019 model year. GM has developed a new version of the engine, this time a 2.0-liter inline-four with a twin-scroll turbocharger that makes 237 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and can deactivate two of its four cylinders in order to conserve fuel.
