This is one of the most advanced internal combustion engines ever created. Twenty years in the making, it’s ready to bring you more power and endurance on demand.
For decades, many have tried. One has succeeded. The new VC-Turbo engine from INFINITI is one of the most advanced internal combustion engines ever created. The arrival of the variable compression ratio engine will establish new benchmarks – for power, efficiency and emissions – against which future powertrains will be measured.
The VC-Turbo is an inspired fusion of two worlds. It combines the power of a high-performance 2.0 litre gas engine with the torque and efficiency of an advanced diesel powertrain. A feat of engineering that takes you further, faster.
Moving seamlessly between compression ratios, the VC-Turbo engine from INFINITI responds to the car’s driving conditions and continuously adapts. Transforming on demand from 8:1 for high performance to 14:1 for high efficiency. Performance when you need it, ultimate efficiency when you don’t.
HOW IT WORKS
The VC-Turbo uses a multi link system that changes the stroke of the piston from high compression ratio 14:1 (fuel efficiency) to low compression ratio 8:1 (high performance).
The VC-Turbo features lower fuel consumption, increased efficiency and higher output than comparable non-VC engines.
