Nissan 1.6L gasoline direct injection turbo engine

By SYF77 on 18 Feb 2010


Following in the same technical path blazed by the Volkswagen Group, General Motors, Ford and others, this new engine from Nissan uses the high-pressure injection system to execute multiple injection pulses for cleaner and more complete combustion. The variable cam phasing system operates independently on both the intake and exhaust camshafts. The result - an impressive 190bhp and 177 pound-feet of torque from a mere 1.6L displacement.

This powerplant will be introduced in the company's new Juke compact crossover (see below) when it hits the streets later this year. The engine will be mated to a CVT transmission in the application for the Juke.

While I am not all excited over the design of the Juke, I am hopeful that the new powerplant will eventually find its way into the bonnet of the next generation Latio Sports. That will be truly a hot hatch!

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

Its not new technology though. Cause BMW's 335i is using the same technology also.

I hope they have an alternative gearbox other dan the unresponsive CVT gearbox. Can't help but think of rubber band effect when car manufacturers combine TC engine with CVT.
