Even though I am favorable to that 3-cyl layout, as it's at least supposed to be more efficient that a 4-cyl with a similar displacement, that engine having been made was quite surprising. IIRC it was only released well after GM sold Opel to PSA, even though it having identical bore and stroke to the straight-6 currently fitted to the Silverado 1500 would've been a good reason to consider using it in the Chevrolet Cruze, Equinox and Trax instead of the 4-cyl 1.6L which used to be available on them.
