The Renault-Nissan and Mercedes Group have unveiled the first turbo 1.3-liter turbocharged 115 to 160 horsepower, following similar technical cooperation with the Nissan GT-R.
Renault Nissan Group-with the collaboration of Mercedes, the new 1.3-liter turbocharged engine has been unveiled and used in the Nissan GT-R technology to cover its cylinders. The 1.3-liter petrol engine is the result of the collaboration of the Renault Nissan with Daimler, which is partnering with each other during the production of this power train. This power train is available with a manual hand wheel and two automatic cluster. The 4-cylinder engine has a precision 1330cc and will be the first to use the Renault Stark and Grand Scan MPV, and will first enter the global logo with the Renault logo.
The TCE version of this engine is scheduled for 2018. It will be available in three different versions with different output powers. The full name is Energy TCE. The first and weaker version of the powertrain series Energy TCE-115 can produce 115 horsepower at 4500 rpm and 220 NM torque at 1500 rpm. The base version of this powertrain will only come with a 6-speed manual gearbox, but two other versions can be selected with the 7-speed dual-clutch box. After the base version, we will come to the mid-version of the power TCE-140. This version has 143 horsepower at a rpm of 5000 rpm. The torque is 240 NM at 1600 rpm.
Those who want the strongest version of the propulsion can go to Energy TCE-160, which can produce 160 horsepower at 5500 rpm and 260 NM of torque at 1750 rpm. Of course, these specifications are if you order this drive with a manual box and if you order an automatic double-clutch box, the torque will increase to ten feet up to 272 meters, which will be available at 1800 rpm. One of the interesting things about this TCE gasoline engine is that it uses the technology of overlays or cylinders that have been taken on by the technology of the Nissan GT-R super sports car.
According to Renault, the use of this propulsion can reduce the internal friction of the parts and increase the efficiency of the drive, while the heat transfer is done better using this technology. In this engine, the variable valve timing system is also used to improve dual torque, while at the top of the cycle it generates a linear torque curve for the drive and thus we can see the best performance in this drive.
As we mentioned, Mercedes-Benz has also collaborated on the project, and it is anticipated that the next generation of Class A small cars will see the use of this power train.
