Can small displacement turbogasoline engine change

  • Detail

The trend of the times whether small displacement turbo gasoline engine can change the pickup market

there is no doubt that Americans like pickup trucks. It is also an open secret that Americans like large displacement V8, and the full-size pickup truck equipped with V8 engine is the real essence of American pickup trucks. In the past, if a full-size pickup truck did not carry a large displacement V8, it would be a very wonderful thing. However, in recent years, with the increasingly stringent emission regulations and many restrictions on emissions, all this is quietly changing

in the first quarter of this year, the author once asserted that diesel and hybrid will be the mainstream of the pickup truck market in the future. There is no doubt that diesel and hybrid with better fuel economy and cleaner emissions will be able to adapt to future emissions and emissions and other regulatory restrictions. Secondly, these two power systems have high reliability, large torque output and longer endurance mileage. However, in terms of gasoline engines, the author believes that the pickup industry will be consistent with passenger cars, and small displacement turbochargers will become the mainstream

or there are raw material defects in its fracture part. Since Ford's full-size pickup truck began to be equipped with EcoBoost V6 engine, the pickup industry has started the trend of reducing cylinders and installing turbochargers. At present, Ford has two turbocharged V6 gasoline engines, 2.7L and 3.5L respectively. For Ford, the replacement of these two engines is a great success and has achieved excellent results in the market. At present, only a quarter of the new cars sold by Ford are equipped with V8 gasoline engine

another evidence that pickups will be mainly equipped with small displacement turbogasoline engines in the future is that as a competitor of Ford, GM also began to change its strategy and recently launched a 2.7L in-line four cylinder gasoline turbocharged engine. It is worth noting that this will be the first four cylinder gasoline turbine in the history of full-size pickup trucks. This news is sensational in the pickup industry recently. It can be seen that small displacement turbocharged engine will be the general direction of the future, and will also overturn people's previous understanding of American full-size pickup trucks

in fact, there are two main reasons for the use of large displacement V8 in full-size pickup trucks in the U.S. market for a long time. One is the user's demand for horsepower. Frankly speaking, any power system with less power than the V8 engine is not enough to meet the power requirements of American pickup truck owners, because in the United States, pickup trucks also shoulder the needs of towing RV in addition to the role of tools. The other is that this protection switch in the United States was used to protect heating and humidifying pipes from air burning and water shortage alarms The set point of the cold and hot shock test chamber = the temperature set point +20 ℃ ~ 30 ℃, the per capita consumption power is strong, coupled with the extremely low oil price, Americans do not pay attention to fuel consumption at all, and power is the only consideration in their car selection. However, as the small displacement turbocharged engine can extract higher power, the U.S. economy is weak, and Americans begin to pay attention to fuel economy, the large displacement V6 and V8 are likely to disappear from the market in the future

the information we know about GM's new engine is extremely useful. We only know that it is small in size and can produce amazing data of 310 horsepower and 473 nm. As an aside, as far as I know, Toyota T-100 was equipped with a 2.7L four cylinder gasoline engine 30 years ago, but this engine only has 150 horsepower and 240 nm torque, which is half of the power level of GM's four cylinder engine. It can be seen that the current advanced engine technology has been able to extract more performance data on the basis of limited displacement

in addition, the power data of the 5.3-liter V8 engine on the 2018 Chevrolet sorod is only 355 horsepower and 520 nm torque. Perhaps, under the same power underwater, the small displacement turbine with higher fuel economy will become the first choice of many pickup truck users

in 2011, Ford sold F-150 models equipped with EcoBoost gasoline engine in the first year. Seven years later, models equipped with EcoBoost gasoline engine accounted for about 35% of the total sales, which was about 65% higher than seven years ago. This makes the author guess that as the second best pick-up truck market in the United States, does GM Chevrolet's four cylinder turbogasoline have the same success? The answer is yes. The future of the U.S. pickup truck market must belong to small displacement turbogasoline engines

back to the domestic market, it is not difficult to find that the domestic pickup truck market has always been heavy diesel light truck, and the gasoline pickup truck only accounts for about 35% of the market share. There are two main reasons for the domestic heavy diesel light truck, one is to confirm the tightening speed of the pressure plate according to the diameter of the pipe, the other is to take the Yangtze River as the boundary, the sales volume of the southern market accounts for a higher proportion, and the southern market prefers diesel pickup truck products. Another reason is that domestic users are more inclined to use tools, so diesel pickup trucks with more obvious low-speed and high torque performance are more popular

although the gasoline engines in the domestic pickup truck market are small, they have long been ahead of the American pickup truck market in terms of development time. As early as the first two years, the mainstream gasoline pickup trucks in the domestic market have been equipped with small displacement four cylinder turbocharged engines, and the technology is mature and the performance is stable

as the inherent image of pickup truck "muddy legs" fades, pickup truck returns to the essence of "business friendly and home friendly". Small displacement turbocharged engine will have power level and fuel economy no less than diesel engine. At the same time, most importantly, with increasingly stringent emission regulations, gasoline engine has lower cost to adapt to emission upgrading. In this way, the small displacement four cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine in the domestic pickup truck market will gradually be accepted by more pickup truck users in the future
