The motor runs on regular unleaded gasoline. Like other turbos, fuel is directly injected into the combustion chamber, and both the intake and exhaust cams feature variable control. The turbo wastegate is electrically driven and computer controlled. For cold starts, the computer holds the wastegate open, bypassing the turbo to speed catalytic converter light off and reduce emissions. A crankshaft-driven balance shaft reduces vibration.
The twin-scroll turbo takes better advantage of exhaust flow into the turbine, so it comes on earlier and builds boost more rapidly. Maximum turbo boost is set at 17.4 psi. There is 269 lb-ft of torque available between 1800 and 4500 rpm.
The six-speed automatic transmission has a short first gear and offers better efficiency than the five-speed it replaces. An compact torque converter helps shorten the transmission's length by 1.6 inches, and it's 26 pounds lighter as well.
Predicted EPA fuel-efficiency is 22 in the city, 34 on the highway with an average of 26. That's 50% better than the outgoing V6, and better than the V6-powered competition.
