Under the Hood
A 2.4-liter twin-scroll turbocharged 4-cylinder Boxer engine powers the Ascent, producing 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. Peak torque is available at a low 2000 rpm, giving the Ascent a spritely feel. The engine gets teamed with a high-torque Lineartronic continuously variable transmission. The CVT has an 8-speed manual mode that can be actuated by paddle shifters on the steering column.
