[YesAuto Evaluation] When we mentioned Yinglang before, we always thought of its 1.6T model. The book data of 184 horsepower is really eye-catching. It seems that only this can represent the essence of Yinglang. Its aura has even covered the natural aspiration of the same series. version. Excellent power is indeed an eye-catching bright spot, but I believe that in fact, more consumers have less demanding driving pleasure, but tend to be comfortable, economical and practical. Without the 1.6T engine, what else can Yinglang bring us? This is the answer we want to find in the process of testing the Yinglang GT 1.8L model today.
First of all, let’s look at the power. This Ecotec 1.8L DVVT engine and the Chevrolet Cruze 1.8L use the same model. It has continuously variable valve timing and variable intake manifold technology. The maximum power is 108 kilowatts (147 horsepower). With a torque of 177 Nm, both technical content and parameters are in the mainstream category in the same level.
We have done a dismantling article of this engine before. At that time, the object was the Cruze 1.8L model. Interested readers can click on the link below to take a closer look at the internal structure of this engine.
