Key Features and Benefits

Overboost feature to increase torque output

Delivers a broad, flat torque curve with maximum torque through the powerband
for sustained acceleration

Aluminum engine block and cylinder head help reduce weight to aid operating efficiency

High-pressure die-cast aluminum block with ladder-frame bearing caps is strong, yet lightweight

Compression ratio of 9.5:1

Over 20 psi of boost available

Integrated exhaust manifold places the turbocharger closer to the exhaust ports for enhanced responsiveness

Balance shaft provides smooth operation at all speeds

Split cooling system with 2 thermostats manages coolant flow during cold start, only allowing flow through the hot side of the cylinder head and integrated manifold until the coolant has reached 72° F

Die-cast aluminum deep-sump oil pan with internal baffle system helps maintain oil delivery during spirited driving

Optimized oil pan capacity to provide up to 1-year/10,000-mile oil change intervals

Dual overhead camshaft (DOHC), lightweight aluminum cylinder head with 4 valves per cylinder

Gasoline direct-injection

Uses a timing chain

Electronic throttle body
