This mill now generates 132 horsepower and 128 ft-lbs of torque and achieves impressive 26/32 mpg fuel economy.

Standard features include 16-inch wheels, a four-speaker audio system with satellite radio and a CD player, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. An optional Preferred Package adds full power accessories, cruise control, and keyless entry.

Optional transmissions include a four-speed automatic and a five-speed automatic; the latter is part of the 1SB package. The 2.4L Vibe speeds from 0 to 60 in about 8 seconds.
