New cars from Toyota are exciting for many great reasons. This year, the talk of the Toyota dealer town involves a specific part of their new cars…a rather important part, as a matter of fact. Your West County Toyota Cars dealer in St. Louis is excited to announce 14 new engines being released into the new car market over the course of the next 2 years. These 14 engines are being derived from “two new powerplants that boost fuel economy by 10 percent and will underpin 14 new engine variants to be introduced globally through next year”, says a recent article found in Auto News.
Once these fourteen new car engines come to life for Toyota over the next year or so, they will include new technology at your local Ackerman Toyota that dealers have never before seen. “The 1.3-liter, 4-cylinder and 1.0-liter, 3-cylinder gasoline engines achieve improved thermal efficiency through adapting a rapid combustion process, high compression ratio and an Atkinson burning cycle, which until now has been reserved for Toyota’s hybrid vehicles.” The same technology mentioned here will also be used in the premium and hybrid lineups of new cars in the Toyota lineup at your Toyota Cars West County dealerships in Missouri. The same advancements described above will also be put to use in existing Toyota cars engines that use direct injection and turbocharging functions. To those of you asking how widespread these new engines will be, the answer from the same article sited above is as follows, “When the 14 new engines come to market over the next two years, they will cover about 30 percent of Toyota’s global nameplates.”
Some “firsts” associated with the new cars engine lineup are going to be inevitable. For example, it will be the very first time that Toyota puts an Atkinson cycle engine in a new car that is not a gasoline electric car. The Atkinson cycle offers great improvement in fuel economy by leaving the intake valves of the car open for a brief period of time during the engine’s compression stroke. There are many other points to make about Toyota cars upcoming engines, but only so much room to write here.
