2014 Verano uses improvements to compete with import sedans

Powerful, efficient engine paces upgrades for new Buick

SAN ANTONIO, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Buick engineers and designers have responded to a new class of customers by building a smaller, sleeker Buick sedan as reflected in the 2014 Buick Verano available in San Antonio, TX that is for sale at Cavender Buick GMC West. The new Verano takes many of the lessons and hallmarks that have made Buick such a popular brand and placed them into a more popular platform. Improvements have been made to the engine options and the result is a vehicle that has the style and performance chops to go toe-to-toe with just about anything than could be imported from Europe in the same class.

One of the most exciting engine changes comes with the new turbocharged 2.0-liter engine under the hood of the 2014 Buick Verano. The 250 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque in more than enough to make the new Buick Verano engaging to drive without being unwieldy or overbearing. The turbocharger has the added advantage of increasing horsepower above what is offered on the naturally aspirated base engine without sacrificing much in the way of fuel-economy. In fact, only a few miles per gallon mark the difference between the turbocharged engine and the 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that comes with the entry-level trims.

Because this is a Buick vehicle, every passenger, including the driver, is going to have a comfortable seating position. This also is true for taller passengers in the rear seat that will be surprised, pleasantly by the available leg and headroom. The clean lines of the dashboard of the 2014 Buick Verano are off-set nicely by the two large gauges in front of the driver and the center stack filled with easy to use controls. The new Verano also adds a pair of advanced safety system, forward collision alert and lane departure warning, which are meant to warn the driver of an accident before it even occurs. Both systems use external sensors to keep tabs on a given situation, as well as the position of the car on the road to make sure every stays safe.
