New Vauxhall Movano engines to bring lower cost of ownership

Vauxhall has revealed further details of the engine range for the revised Movano, which will bring higher power, more torque and greater efficiencyk

The new Movano powertrains offer higher power, more torque and greater efficiency

Alongside design changes and new driver assistance and technological features, the range – which arrives in dealerships this month – also brings new powertrains developed for lower fuel consumption and long service intervals to reduce the cost of ownership for businesses and fleet operators. In fact, service internals have been extended to 40,000km (around 25k miles) or two years, while moderately priced spare parts and materials further reduce operating costs.

The new engine portfolio consists exclusively of BiTurbo diesel power units. The 2.3-litre power units cover 136hp, 150hp and 180hp versions compliant with Euro 6d-Temp (light duty), bringing CO2 emissions of 154g/km to 191g/km. In addition, 131hp, 145hp and 163hp Euro V-Id (heavy duty) rated versions are also offered.

Compared with the previous generation, power is up by 5-10hp while the units also offer between 20 and 40Nm higher torque. The top-of-the-line 180 PS BiTurbo develops maximum torque of 400Nm, with emissions ranging from 191 to 233g/km.

Rear-wheel drive models are available in addition to front-wheel wheel drive variants, with both configurations featuring six-speed manual transmission as standard while automated manual transmissions will arrive in the future. Rear-wheel drive versions of the Movano can be ordered with an optional limited-slip differential, providing additional traction on slippery surfaces, while all-wheel drive is available as an option.
