Default Volvo planning to use four-cylinder engines in the near future




Quote:
It common knowledge that car manufacturers are opting for smaller engines and going for more efficient technologies, one company however is going a step forward beyond offering just a few hybrid models in their range to appease eco-conscious customers.

Auto Motor und Sport reports confirming that Volvo will be using four-cylinder engines exclusively in the near future. Volvo claims that this four-cylinder unit is equally powerful than others engines equipped with more cylinders. This bold move by Volvo makes perfect sense at this time considering the fact that EU regulations will bring down allowable emissions levels to an average of only 120g/km by the year 2015 with a long term target of 95g/km by 2020.

Meeting these requirements early will save the Swedish company time and money and permit it to focus on other areas of future product development. The use of four-cylinder powerplants means that Volvo will be employing technologies that will make their engines potent while maintaining a small footprint, which may include turbocharging and direct injection among others.

Although Volvo will be using four-cylinder units in their cars, these will come with different power output figures.

Well I guess the time was going to come to say goodbye to the quirky inline 5. Oh well. If the engine is based on the ecoboost 4 this should at least be a solid move. The fives have always been gas hogs.

Ecoboost not found. Try Zetec. Or whatever Ford is calling their fours these days.
