2020 Maxus G50 to be Powered Exclusively by 1.5-liter Turbo Engine
In its next teaser nugget, Maxus Philippines has confirmed what engine its 8-seater compact MPV, the 2020 G50 is getting—and enthusiasts will love it.
The 2020 G50 will be available in three variants and all of them powered by a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine paired with a 7-speed dual clutch automatic. Though Maxus Philippines left out figures such as horsepower and torque, a quick online search reveals that this particular engine configuration puts out 169 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque—figures that surpass the gasoline-powered Innova. Power is routed through the front wheels.
The Ayala-distributed commercial brand has said before that its G50 is slated for a Q3 launch. Now, the company has narrowed it down to a month: August. This may make it the brand’s first-ever digital launch in the country.
