Of course it is.
The question was, "Will the Turbo and eAssist be combined in the same engine?".
That is not "in the cards".

Thought you meant either/or. Guess I blew by the e-assist combined with the turbo question as it sounded kind of ridiculous. However, the more I think about it I assume something like that could be possible someday, just not from GM in the near future.

GM's Opel subsidiary in Germany is introducing turbo and auto start-stop on their economy-priced "Corsa" model to be sold in Europe. Also, BMW has turbo and start-stop technology combined across the line. So the era of turbo and start-stop is here already.

Yeah, I've read about that and I think there are others. Just the idea of a battery assisted turbo hybrid sounded odd but, like I said, when I think more about it, why not. One of the drawbacks on turbos is when you put your foot in it your fuel economy goes south, but if the battery were to kick in and take up some of the torque request it may be something that would work well. I'm certainly no engineer but it sounds like it could work.

A turbo eAssist engine is very possible and we'll likely see it (or something similar) in the future.
Meanwhile, the turbo Verano is just a couple months away.
#62 of 87 2012 Buick Verano Specials and Leasing cost

Looking at buying a 2012 Buick Verano. Any idea on what kind of specials are going currently and what can one expect to pay for a 3-year lease assuming zero down? This is my first Buick and first time I will be leasing a car.

If you lease, I think the best deals might b on the 13s when you factor in the higher residual value. I hope to hear what you get for pricing. I understand the 13s will finally get the back up camera.

Just got one quote. Pricing wise, for the 12s one dealer is offering for $230 + tax and $775 down for a 36 month lease. He is assuming a residual of 60%.

Better quote: $224 including taxes, plus $1,000 down. This is for a Verano convenience package with a sun roof.

Love the car.
