Default No update for 2019 3008 GT engine choices?

By coincidence, I noticed in the English 3008 brochure that there are some changes for the 1,6l petrol engine, but no update for the GT trim with the 2,0l diesel engine.

That's not logical to me. Anyone heard any rumours about a GT engine update as well? I'm looking at trading in my 2017 3008 with a 2019, but I'm not sure what to believe.

1. The 1,6l petrol engine looks to be rebranded to PureTech (which I didn't believe on this forum previously - sorry about that). That makes absolutely no sense to me, as PureTech is branded and marketed is three sylinder engines. The 1,6l is a four sylinder engine. It has got to be a worlds first that a manufacturer upsizes it's engines in this eco-friendly decade
2. The current 1,6l petrol engine is just as fast (or slow to be honest) than the 2,0l diesel in the GT. Why would they put an even more powerful engine in the cheaper trims (GT-Line and below)? The only reason I bought the GT-Line instead of GT was because the GT-Line was cheaper and came with a better engine. From the 2019-models there's absolutely no reason to buy the GT

Are the Peugeot managers drunk, do they have a heat stroke, or what else is going on down there?

Is the 1.6 puretech you're talking about the 220 something horse power one they're putting in the new 508?
If so I think it's Peugeot's way of getting off the diesel band wagon.
I would expect a higher power engine to go in the GT but you'll have to wait until they decide. They already have the 1.6 puretech. Maybe they'll come up with a 2 litre 300hp Yes please, I'll order mine now!

Yer I know, but be good though! It would be a proper GT then.

I am so disappointed Peugeot dropped the 2.2 HDI. Best engine ever as I had many cars and MPVs with that engine. Bullet proof! The difference in engine between the 2l HDI 177 and the 2.2l HDI 204 was quite marked, when I got out of my 508 GT and drove the replacement GT.

I don't know what they will add to the new 508, but I'm talking about the Euro 6.2 version of the current 1,6l THP petrol engine. They boost it with 15 more bhp (total of 180 bhp), which will make it significantly faster than the GT with 180 bhp diesel.


Maybe the 2019 GT will be hybrid only.
