2012 Buick Verano

A document showing the preliminary equipment and pricing details for the 2012 Buick Verano was sent out to dealers earlier this week as an intent to gather ordering demand for the four different trim levels of the new compact sedan.

From the document, we can see that the 2012 Verano will only be offered with one powertrain option – a 2.4L 4-cylinder unit making 180-hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. It will come standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Check out the document after the jump.
