Vauxhall says new Movano engines provide ‘ultimate power and efficiency’

Vauxhall has announced a new range of BiTurbo engines for the Movano, all offering higher power, more torque and greater efficiency.

Thanks to lower fuel consumption and long service intervals, Vauxhall says the new BiTurbo engines could greatly reduce the cost of ownership for businesses and fleet operators. Service intervals have been extended to 40,000 kilometres or two years.

The new engine portfolio consists exclusively of BiTurbo diesel power units. The 2.3-litre power units range from 131 PS to 180 PS and all comply with the strict Euro 6d-TEMP (light duty) or Euro V-Id (heavy duty) emissions standards. Compared with the previous generation, the engines boast 5-10 more PS and 20-40 Nm higher torque. The top-of-the-line 180 PS BiTurbo develops maximum torque of 400 Nm.

In addition to front-wheel drive, Vauxhall customers can select a rear-wheel drive configuration, improving the performance of the Movano for heavy duty applications. Rear-wheel drive versions of the Movano can be ordered with an optional limited-slip differential, providing additional traction on slippery surfaces such as at building sites. Both configurations include six-speed manual transmission and will, in future, also benefit from automated manual transmissions. Certain versions of the Movano are optionally available with all-wheel drive.
