Used in many performance sedans throughout General Motors’ global portfolio, the LTG 2.0L Turbocharged four-cylinder is one of the most power-dense engines in the industry. And thanks to advanced technologies, such as direct injection, it is a surprisingly efficient performer. It’s a great choice for custom tuner cars or to make a statement in your hot rod, with its compact – and lightweight – capabilities.
The LTG is rated at 272 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 295 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,000 rpm. Its torque curve is broad and robust, delivering 90 percent (260 lb.-ft.) of its peak torque from 1,700 rpm to 5,500 rpm – for a great feeling of immediate power at all speeds. Peak torque is sustained from 3,000 to 4,600 rpm.
The turbocharger generates up to 20 pounds of boost and its twin-scroll design helps optimize the usable power from the engine, virtually eliminating turbo lag and helping deliver a broad power band. Electronically controlled supporting components, including the wastegate and bypass, help optimize performance and efficiency.
