This midsize sedan will be available in five different trim levels, including a pair of dark-accented, customizable GS models.
Under the hood, the Verano Pro debuts a new 1.5-liter Ecotec turbo engine paired to a continuously variable transmission. This responsive, quiet, and efficient powertrain delivers 181 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque while achieving fuel economy ratings as high as 39 mpg. The Verano Pro also comes with an optimized MacPherson front suspension and independent multilink rear suspension for smooth, confident handling.
The Verano Pro’s long, sleek exterior design incorporates a fastback silhouette, sculpted body lines, and a sporty rear spoiler. The car is available in six different paint colors. GS models add a black contrast roof, dark five-spoke wheels, and other dark touches. They can also be customized with unique spoilers, fenders, cladding, and other body parts.
The most prominent feature inside the Verano Pro is a new dual 10.25-inch widescreen array for the digital instrument cluster and center infotainment display. Other highlights include sport seats, a three-spoke steering wheel, three interior color options, and a fold-flat second row that opens up extra cargo space. GS models add special badging and black suedette seats with red stitching and perforated rhombus patterns.
The Verano Pro comes equipped with an updated eConnect 3.0 infotainment setup. This system provides intuitive controls, advanced voice control, cloud-based connectivity, smartphone integration options, and real-time navigation information. The sedan also features a full lineup of driver-assist features, including forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.
