Which Engine Powers the 2022 Toyota Corolla? 

With a choice of two engines, the 2022 Toyota Corolla allows you to opt for the engine that suits your lifestyle. You could choose between the 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine and the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine. The former pushes out 139 hp and has a torque rating of 126 lb.-ft. With lower horsepower, this engine keeps the 2022 Corolla light and agile, and a low-end torque ensures that you have access to more engine power in lower gears. What’s more, the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) paired with this engine always keeps the 2022 Corolla in the right gear, such that you don’t need to manage it. 

Its efficient 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine pushes out 169 hp at 6,600 rpm, and it has a torque rating of 151 lb.-ft, promising a thrilling performance. This engine can be matched with a Dynamic-Shift Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), which is a new system that launches the first gear like in a regular transmission. Subsequently, after the vehicle speeds up, it switches to working as a normal CVT. If you prefer to combine the engine with a 6-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission, you are assured of optimized fuel economy.
