The Buick Verano is a front engine, front-wheel drive layout, four-door, five passenger, compact sedan manufactured at the General Motors Orion Assembly plant in Orion Township, Michigan. The Verano debuted at the North American International Auto Show on January 10, 2011 during a preview of Buick's then upcoming 2012 model.[1][2][3][4]. It is the first compact marketed by Buick in the United States since the 1997 Buick Skylark.

The Verano — along with the Buick Excelle GT[5], which was developed for the Chinese market and produced in China and the European and the Opel Astra sedan, which was presented at the 2012Moscow International Automobile Salon — shares General MotorsDelta II platform with the Chevrolet Cruze and the corresponding mini-van models, Chevrolet Orlando and Opel/Vauxhall Zafira Tourer.

Verano is Spanish for summer.[6]




Jim Federico, Executive Director and Vehicle Chief Engineer for Verano, led the vehicle development team and David Lyon, Buick design director, styled the exterior.[7][8]

The Verano's unibody construction utilizes galvanized steel for its front fenders, hood, roof and door panels and thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) bumper covers.[1] It incorporates acoustical laminated glass, triple door seals, a five-layer interior roof liner, sound absorbing mats, recycled denim insulation and specially manufactured 18-inch forged alloy wheels, which minimize road noise.[1]

Rear view (2013)

The standard powertrain is a 2.4 L Ecotec direct-injected DOHC I4 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The 2.4 L engine is rated 180 horsepower (130 kW) at 6,700 rpm and 171 lb·ft (232 N·m) of torque at 4,900 rpm. The engine is flex-fuel capable, meaning it can use either gasoline, or E85 ethanol, or any combination of the two fuels. EPA fuel economy estimates are 21 miles per US gallon (11 l/100 km) city and 32 miles per US gallon (7.4 l/100 km) highway for gasoline.[9][1] A 2012 on-road mixed highway-city review by the website MPGOMATIC showed an average 26.5 MPG on E85, and 29 for gasoline.

A 2.0 L turbocharged version became available in late 2012, for the 2013 model year, as well as a 6-speed manual transmission. The 2.0 L turbo engine is rated at 250 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. GM estimated acceleration from 0-60 mph is 6.2 seconds, matching the number posted by the Buick RegalGS.[10]
