2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 Coupe and Cabrio come with clever M264 four-cylinder engine

Mercedes-Benz will attempt to achieve what you never thought would go together in a vehicle - a gasoline engine that has low fuel consumption like that of a diesel. And this will be demonstrated on the new two-door E-Class models that will be equipped with the M 264 engine. This four-cylinder engine has been turbocharged and promises to have an output of 299 horsepower (220 kilowatts) from 5,800 rpm and a maximum torque of 295 pound-feet (400 Newton-metres) from 3,000 rpm.

What makes it different from any other four-cylinder 2.0 liter mill is the fact that it has been tweaked, and a 48 V starter-alternator and an electric 48 V water pump have been added. The “EQ Boost” branded starter-alternator enables the boost function to be available at an engine speed range of 2,500 rpm, while increasing output by 14 horsepower (10 kilowatts) and 110 pound-feet (150 Newton metres). This is not the only performance upgrade it has, but Mercedes promises that start up and acceleration will be silky smooth as well.

To save fuel, the M 264 unit can be switched off when the car does not need to use its power, like when coasting or decelerating. This helps the vehicle save fuel when the driver is not stepping on the gas pedal. There is a difference between the coupe and the cabriolet. The four-cylinder unit in the former consumes 6.7 liters / 100 kilometers in the combined cycle, where it emits 149 g/km of CO2 emissions. The latter, on the other hand, uses up 6.8 liters while emitting 154 g/km.

Mercedes-Benz and Renault-Nissan to downsize engines, will use 1.2- and 1.4-liter powerplants

You guys are probably aware of the collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and Renault-Nissan. Knowing this, you would expect that both companies will come up with something impressive. Sources say that the partnership has been working on some new gasoline four-cylinder engines. However, rather than developing a more powerful engine, they seem to have come up with 1.2- and 1.4-liter engines instead. Why small engines, you might want to ask?

The reason behind the downsizing is because the German company aims to lower emissions while increasing the efficiency of the new engines. The new 1.2- and 1.4-liter units will benefit from direct injection, and will be a standard in the next generation base variants of the A-Class and B-Class lineups, according to reports from Autocar. There are currently eight cars lined up for Mercedes’ compact models for 2018 including: the A-Class hatchback, A-Class Sedan, CLA, CLA Shooting Brake, B-Class, GLA, a rumoured GLB, and an unknown model that has yet to be announced by the company.

The new four-cylinder units, which currently go under the codename M282, are being engineered exclusively for transverse applications. Therefore, these engines will not be available for use in larger Mercedes-Benz models. These new units will be joined by an updated version of the “M274” which will soon be given a codename that is “M260”. The M260 will be bigger and is going to be available in two versions: 1.6- and 2.0-liter units.

Jaguar F-Type arrives a bit restrained for 2018 with 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine

A seductively long hood, strictly raked windshield and wide rear haunches – these characteristics are what makes the Jaguar F-Type. Add in a snarling 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine, and the equation is complete.

Via a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, this stunner runs with 340 horsepower on its rear wheels while the S models get up to 380 horsepower on all wheels with the automatic transmission. The F-type is truly powerful; however, it may prove to be an impractical choice for rough roads.

For 2018, Jaguar decided to tone it down with the F-Type, giving it a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four base engine, making a total of 10 powertrain options (a grand total of 24 model variants). It has been a while since news of a four-cylinder F-Type circulated, so this addition to the line is not too surprising. This particular F-Type runs exclusively on rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission, producing only 296 horsepower (221 kilowatts) and 295 pound-feet (400 Newton-meters) of torque at 1,500 to 4,500 rpm. With this powertrain, the F-Type can launch itself from a standstill to 60 miles per hour in 5.4 seconds and achieve a top speed of 155 mph.

2017 Audi Q7 gets 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine for US market

Starting early 2017, the new Audi Q7 will be available with the new 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine that makes it not only faster but also lighter and more efficient than the 3.0T-powered Q7 of the previous generation. Aside from better fuel efficiency, this new powertrain would mean savings of a few thousand dollars from the price tag of the new 2017 Audi Q7. The 2017 Audi Q7 2.0 T Quattro starts at $49,000 for the Premium trim and at $53,000 for the Premium Plus level.

This new turbocharged 2.0T engine provides up to 252 hp of output available between 5,000 rpm and 6,000 rpm, and up to 273 lb-ft of torque available between 1,600 rpm and 4,500 rpm. The four-cylinder engine is mated to the eight-speed Tiptronic transmission with quattro all-wheel drive.

Compared to the previous generation 2015 Audi Q7 3.0T V6 model, the 2017 Audi Q7 2.0T could reach the speed of 60 mph (from standstill) around half a second faster while delivering 22 percent better fuel efficiency. In fact, the new 2017 Audi Q7 2.0T is expected to boast an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 22 mpg city/highway and combined.

The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro has just been unveiled and as expected, the muscle car arrives with plenty of goodies in order to take on the all-new 2016 Ford Mustang. General Motors says that the 2016 Camaro offers a leaner design as well as a broader engine lineup and will go on sale in the fourth quarter, in LT and SS trim levels.

When it comes to design, the vehicle retains the overall shape of its predecessor and offers new lightning signatures as well as 10 exterior colors. GM says that the engineers needed 350 hours of wind tunnel testing in order to reduce drag on LT models and improve downforce on SS. Camaro’s structural rigidity was increased by 28 percent, while the body-in-white mass was reduced by 133 pounds (60.5 kg).

Other significant weight savings came from using an aluminum instrument panel instead of steel, saving 9.2 pounds (4.2 kg), the new five-link rear suspension system that saved 26 pounds (12 kg). The total curb weight for the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro was reduced by more than 200 pounds (90 kg). All Camaro models are offered with Brembo brakes (standard on SS models).

The 2016 Chevrolet Volt will be introduced in January at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show but details are already starting to emerge. According to General Motors, the next-generation Volt plug-in hybrid will get a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine which will act as its range extender, which means that the new version will get a bigger engine that the current 1.4-liter powerplant.

This engine is part of a new, more fuel-efficient family of small engines that will be used by the new GM vehicles globally. Although previous reports said that the new Volt will get a three-cylinder engine, GM has other plans and we don’t expect to see a problem with the bigger engine as the plug-in hybrid car will definitely be more fuel-efficient than its predecessor.

According to GM CEO Mary Barra, the new 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine will be built at the company’s engine plant in Flint, Michigan while the battery cells will be supplied by LG Chem in Holland, Michigan.

The BMW 2-Series Coupe was unveiled in October 2013, which means it was time for a small update. As a result, the Bavarian manufacturer introduced today an updated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine on the 220d Coupe, delivering 190 hp (140 kW) and 400 Nm of torque. If you don’t remember, the current version of the engine delivers 184 hp (135 kW) and 380 Nm of torque.

Bolted to the standard 6-speed manual transmission, the new diesel engine offers an average fuel consumption of 4.4 to 4.1 l/100 km, while CO2 emissions are 115 to 107 g/km.

As an option, the 2015 BMW 220d Coupe is available with an 8-speed automatic Steptronic transmission that makes the vehicle even more fuel-efficient because it needs between 4.1 to 3.8 l/100 km, with CO2 emissions between 107 and 99 grams per km.

Back in April, Porsche unveiled the entry-level Macan in China as the market demanded a smaller engine for company’s crossover. The new Macan arrived at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show a.k.a. Auto China 2014 on April 20. Powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine, the new Macan is expected to outsell the V6-powered versions in China due to the reduced fuel consumption but also due to the reduced fuel consumption tax of 12 percent.

The bigger 3.0-liter V6 engine has a 25 percent fuel consumption tax. The bad news is that this four-cylinder version of the Macan will not arrive in markets such as Germany and France due to the fact that all the left-hand-drive production of this model is built for China.

According to a Porsche spokesman, the demand will be strong in China, but the company doesn’t expect the same interest from right-hand-drive Asian markets such as Japan. As a result, the 2.0-liter Porsche Macan is expected to sell in very small numbers in the United Kingdom.

Back in November, Porsche launched the Macan crossover in three versions: one powered by a 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine, one using a 3.0-liter V6 TDI engine and the turbo version powered by a 3.6-liter V6 powerplant. According to AutoExpress, it appears that the German carmaker is currently developing a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine with horizontally opposed pistons.

Dr. Thomas Casper a.k.a. Porsche’s manager of transmission and drivetrain development said that the sound of the engine is a top priority of the company. Still, he promised that the four-cylinder Macan will be a proper Porsche.

The new engine that will be found on the Macan will be closely related to the four-cylinder direct-injection petrol engine used by the new Porsche LMP1 hybrid prototype that will compete in the 2014 Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race.
