Chevrolet Performance is now not providing the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG engine as an obtainable crate motor, GM Authority has uncovered. The LTG engine’s departure from the Chevrolet Efficiency lineup follows its departure in GM’s manufacturing car lineup as nicely.
As we coated earlier within the week, the GM turbo LTG engine is now only available within the Chevy Camaro and Chevy Malibu. Initially debuting within the 2013-model-year Cadillac ATS and Chevrolet Malibu, the LTG is a part of Normal Motors’ large-displacement four-cylinder Ecotec engine household, and options twin overhead cams, Spark Ignited Direct Injection, a metal crank, solid powdered metallic connecting rods, and a cast-aluminum block and head.
The LTG engine was just lately discontinued in the Chevrolet Equinox and Chevrolet Terrain. GM is now phasing out the LTG in favor of the newer turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY, which could be present in a wide range of totally different autos, together with the GMC Acadia, to not point out each mannequin within the Cadillac lineup.
Chevrolet Efficiency launched the LTG engine as an available crate motor at the 2014 SEMA show. Producing 272 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, the LTG crate motor was designed for longitudinal, RWD, guide transmission purposes, and was provided both as a standalone unit, or coupled with a six-speed guide transmission.
The crate motor initially price between $8,000 and $9,000.

For reference, the older LTG engine produced 272 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque when geared up within the Cadillac ATS, whereas the LSY produces 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque within the 2020 Cadillac CT5.
