How wise are the Italian-American allies Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is leading a technology and business strategy, showing the introduction of a ‘small global engine’ GSE (Global Small Engine).
This is a new, modular long-life 70 x 86.5 mm engine, which was born in 2016 in a 2-valve (!) 3-cylinder N3 with 999 ccm and 72 hp (76 hp per ethanol) for the Brazilian Fiat Mobi , Uno and Argo as well as 4-cylinder with 1332 cc and 101 hp (109 hp per ethanol), for Fiat Uno, Argo and Cronos.
The turbocharged T3 (3-cylinder, 12V, 999 cc, 120 hp, 190 Nm) turbo versions are now available, which is already announced for the Fiat 500X, and soon for the Jeep Renegade. It’s already news for itself, especially since T4 (4 cylinders, 16V, 1332 cc, 150 hp, 270 Nm) are announced for the same models. However, ‘bomb’ is what is causing this text.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia 1.3 Turbo, the Italian ‘bella machina’, was launched in 2016. It is backed by a more powerful version of the T4 engine (4 cylinders, 16V, 1332 cc, 180 hp, 320 Nm). This long-awaited inbound petrol version (to date, Turbo Benzines 2.0 with 200KS, 2.0 with 280KS and 2.9 V6 with 510KS were available), returns to the famous category of the cult model from the 1960s, when the equations were valid: Alfa 1300 = BMW 1600, Alfa 1600 = BMW 2000.
The Turbo petrol engine, which will boast the dynamics of the 320 Nm maximum at 2500 / min (beware of a turbocharger, not a turbo diesel), will accelerate up to a hundred for 7.1 seconds and a top speed of 230 km / h. Declared combined consumption will only be 5.4 l / 100 km, so in normal driving it is possible to expect a real average of about seven, which is for such a car super. photos : next gen alfa romeo giulietta rendering
