Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has patented a new six-cylinder petrol engine with turbocharging. Drawing of power unit appeared on the website of the U.S. patent office. Insiders claim that the new engine will be able to produce more than 500 horsepower and in the future will replace “eight” HEMI family.
Patent in-line turbo – the first documentary evidence of the concern over high-performance supercharged engine. In architecture, the new powertrain is similar to “turboservice” FCA GME-T4, but has an additional two cylinders. On the stage of development of the “six” is difficult to judge: the patent was filed November 1, 2017 and issued on 2 April this year, and during that time the mechanics of the FCA could seriously upgrade the design.
Moparinspiders sources claim that the new engine will be available in various options of force in the range from 360 to 525 horsepower. Effect turboyamy will deal with electronic technology FCA eBooster. The most powerful variation of the “six” can be used to replace the HEMI V8.
The development of new “turboshesterki” can influence the recent news about combining FCA with the Peugeot Citroen group and information on the conservation of all 13 brands megamanzero under one roof. Forced powerful engine is unlikely to be interesting partners, because PSA is committed to the electrification of the model range.
