Engine specs

The engine of the Chevrolet Captiva 2016 is going to be somehow interesting with anticipations that will include a refreshed set of engines that will be tasked in powering the engine. The most likely base engine will be a 2.2L capacity diesel powertrain that will be able to generate 163 horsepower and 184 Nm of torque. With the above mentioned engine, we should expect the new vehicle to have EPA estimated ratings of 20/28 in the city/highway. The fuel economy ratings are impressive considering this is a mid-size SUV and not a sedan.

The other one will be a 2.4L 4-cylinder gasoline powerplant that will be able to generate 167 horsepower and 230 Nm of torque. The ultimate powertrain according to our elite analysts will be a 3L capacity V6 engine with a production output of 258 horsepower and 288 Nm of torque. Buyers should expect the drive system to be offered to be either the all-wheel drive with the 6-speed auto transmission or an optional front wheel drive with a manual transmission system.

Despite the new Captiva coming with similar engines as its predecessor, we expect it to come with improved engines that will give better fuel economy ratings.

Its msrp remains shrouded in mystery and might be a hard nut to crack for now, although, potential clients should anticipate the current price of 24,300 USD to marginally adjust upwards. We expect certain prices during the upcoming Geneva Car Show in case you are planning on buying this car.

The new 2016 Chevrolet Captiva will not be significantly expensive than the current model due to the minor changes the automobile company has used. However, we expect the new Captiva to ‘captivate’ the minds of would-be buyers.
