Huh? That is a serious de-tune of the 2.0.

In the Forte, the 1.8 shows 145 HP and 130 TQ. The 2.0 Forte has 173 HP and 154 TQ.

This makes no sense. What, are they chasing the Buick crowd now? Oh wait, Buick is no longer The Old Folks Car!

Blame it on the government. It's all about CAFE.

The Beta II responds well to boost, maybe the new 2.0 will as well. I also have seen people do pretty good things with the Chevy Sonic's 1.4L turbo engine. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
