neither one, Nor two, nor three, four. These will form part of the new super-diesel BMW. A block of six cylinders in line with three liters of displacement to which will be attached a total of four turbos in order to achieve a maximum power of 394 HP and 760 Nm of torque. A madness that will enjoy sedans and SUV larger end of the range.
While other manufacturers are opting for turbos electric, BMW is still committed to adding more turbos
a long time Ago that BMW said goodbye to the blocks diesel V8. But it has not forgotten them at the time of attempting to match the performance of these. It is for this reason that already a long time ago that we see as the family 50d features engine with three turbos. We are now a step further, and with the addition of this fourth compressor is looking for a further refinement of the same benefits.
The main difference with the past block is that before you had a big turbo support that came into operation when it is demanded of the engine. Now that turbo more is changed by two smaller ones. In this way the delivery of power, and especially torque, is more linear, smoother and progressive.
BMW has opted to continue increasing turbos in a progressive manner rather than to bet by others with technology variable. The germans rely on the fact that in this way the delivery of power is smoother, in addition to having less lag when stepping on the accelerator and dash..
The large turbo of the 50d current is replaced by two smaller ones
The diesel is not dead, and BMW us show with this great block. will Soon be in all the high-end of the German family. Again the employee in the SUV large, BMW X5 and BMW 6, as well as the revamped BMW 5-Series, which will soon see the light. Without forgetting of course the flagship, the BMW Series 7.
