Customers buying Vauxhall’s updated Movano will also have a new range of BiTurbo diesel engines to choose from offering higher power, more talk and better efficiency, the company has announced.
The Movano’s new engine portfolio consists of BiTurbo diesel power units; the 2.3-litre power units range from 130PS to 180PS and all comply with the Euro 6d-TEMP (light duty) or Euro V-Id (heavy duty) emissions standards. Compared with the previous generation, the engines boast five to 10 more PS and 20 to 40Nm higher torque. The top-of-the-line 180 PS BiTurbo develops maximum torque of 400Nm.
Vauxhall say that the new BiTurbo engines greatly reduce the cost of ownership for businesses and fleet operators due to their low fuel consumption and long service intervals – 40,000 kilometres or two years.
In addition to front-wheel drive, Vauxhall customers can select a rear-wheel drive configuration, improving the performance of the Movano for heavy duty applications. Both configurations include six-speed manual transmission and will, in future, also benefit from automated manual transmissions. Certain versions of the Movano are optionally available with all-wheel drive.
Rear-wheel drive versions of the Movano can be ordered with an optional limited-slip differential, providing additional traction on slippery surfaces such as at building sites.
The new Movano is available to purchase now, with prices starting at £27,745, excluding VAT. You can find out more about what is new about the Movano here.
