The compact sedan debuted in late 2011 with a 2.4-liter engine and got a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine for the 2013 model year. It gets some safety features for 2014, including forward collision alert and lane departure warning. |
A redesign is scheduled for late 2015 or early 2016. Thatís early from a U.S. perspective but would align with the life cycle of the Veranoís European sibling, the Opel Astra.
On the next generation, a 1.6-liter turbo engine likely will replace the 2.0-liter. Also, look for the 2.5-liter to supplant the current 2.4-liter as the base engine. GM is likely to add an eAssist model, too.
GM has been mulling a Verano coupe, based on the Astra GTC. But itís unlikely to arrive ahead of the Veranoís redesign in 2016.
