With safety being the primary concern of the Sweeds from Volvo,the power house in each vehicle feels a bit ignored.
Not anymore, as the car maker announced two new engines for use in their products.
First off, they presented a very nice 2.0 liter turbo diesel, dubbed D4. With power output at 181 Hp, it has a pretty decent punch. But what is really impressive about this new unit is the CO2 emissions, which are under the 100 g/km mark European laws stress.
“Each injector has an intelligent chip that monitors injection pressure. Using this information, the self-adapting i-ART system makes sure that the ideal amount of fuel is injected during each combustion cycle”. Volvo explains about the D4.
The second unit presented by the manufacturer is a 2.0 liter 4 cylinder engine capable of delivering 306 Hp. earing the name T6, it is able to produce the power thanks to a twin charged system. Both a turbocharger and a supercharger are added to it, taking care of brunt in both the lower and higher revs.
While the D4 is already present on Volvo models like the S60, V60, XC60, V70, XC70 and S80, the T6 has yet to be used on vehicles, but Volvo says 2014 will mark its premiere.
