Supercharged Sky????


Recommended Posts

I picked up a Crain publication at Cobo this week. It had a listing of cars and SUV's with comments on them.

It had a note on the Sky and highlighted the turbo 260 engine as being available and other comments.

What I did note is it stated in the future a Superchared engine is coming? Does anyone have any idea of what this would be? Could it be a new 205 HP base engine or the talked about 300 HP Ecotech that I expected as a turbo?

I have not heard or seen anything on a supercharged engine since before the turbo was anounced. I also know GM is going to put the Turbo in the HHR and Cobalt so would this free up the Supercharged engine as a base unit in the Sky?

Yeah, I think Turbocharging is gaining ground in GM at the moment.

Yes that was my thought. It most likley is a miss print but Crain publications are seldom wrong. Since they are Detroit based and weekly publications are up to date and most likley on the mark.

My guess was if this was right that the Sky would get a base 205 HP SC engine since it is leaving the Cobalt next year. This would give them a better base than Pontiac make them a little more different.

Turbocharging is more efficient & much cooler than supercharging... 9/10 times.
