Features a 2.4-liter Ecotec

New details are starting to emerge about the 2012 Buick Verano as a dealer survey has been leaked to the web.

Created to ascertain what dealers would order, the survey reveals the Verano will likely have four different trim levels with the base 1SB costing approximately $20,900 to $21,500. Moving up to the 1SD ($22,100 to $22,700) adds remote start, automatic dual-zone climate control, and a premium audio system with Bluetooth connectivity.

Further up, the 1SG ($23,300 to $23,900) combines the aforementioned equipment with a power driver's seat, heated exterior mirrors, rear park assist, and a backup camera. The range-topping 1SL ($25,600 to $26,200) boasts all the previous equipment as well as heated leather seats, passive entry, keyless ignition, a Bose audio system, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Under the hood, power will reportedly come from a 2.4-liter Ecotec engine that produces 182 hp (136 kW / 185 PS) and 172 lb-ft (233 Nm) of torque. It will be mated exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission.

As we have previously reported, the Cruze-based Verano will feature styling inspired by the Chinese Buick Excelle GT and be built at GM's Lake Orion assembly plant.

Whoooow! What a secret! This is bull...t. "Leaked ?" WTF? This is no secret at all. We know this platdorm, this engines, even the interior is exactly the same as the Opel Insignia. Buick Verano, Buick Regal, Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet Cruze, Daewoo Lacetti Premiere etc... etc....etc... This is MASSSSSSSSSx5 production. Badge engineering is one perfect strategy for GM, but so-so-so-so-so-so f..n boring for all petrolheads. So, what is the "new" in the "new" Verano? It is the number before the name - 2012, nothing more.

The Insignia and the Cruze are chalk and cheese; inside and out.

I totally agree. Black triangles on a white background have never been my thing.

Kudos to GM for bringing the Opel based Insignia, and the recent Buick lineup is looking pretty good as well. This one should be good I reckon.......but unfortunately I'm not incline to buy it with the Buick badge on.....but nice work GM..keep it up!!
