Mazda Is Developing Wild Triple Charged Engine

  Mazda Is Developing Wild Triple Charged Engine Is this something we might see in a future Miata?A patent application just published on the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) website shows an engine that uses two turbochargers and an electric supercharger. Both the schematic (Fig. 1) and drawing (Fig. 4) below show a gas-powered engine with two exhaust-driven turbochargers (11 and 15) operating in parallel with a single supercharger driven by electricity.

Nearly everything is continuously variable under the hood of the QX50 – not only the new shift-by-wire XTRONIC CVT. The new VC-Turbo gasoline engine is able to change its compression ratio from 8:1 to 14:1, or anything in between depending of the driving situation; whether there is need for top-end power or turbodiesel-like torque from low revs, or optimized fuel economy. The pistons' reach is continuously adjusted by an electric "Harmonic Drive" motor, which controls a multi-link system, affecting the top-dead-center of the pistons and changing the compression. The engine can also switch between efficiency-maximizing Atkinson cycle and regular combustion cycle, on the go – and there's both multipoint injection and gasoline direct injection employed.

  Dissecting Mazda's Revolutionary Gas Engine While Mazda hasn't released all the information about the magic engine that's supposed to zoom-zoom them all the way to 2030, Engineering Explained has an educated guess about its operation.Now, almost five months later, Mazda's future powertrain plan is out, and as a complement to its electrification program, the company is hoping to perfect internal combustion using a revolutionary technology called the Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition engine.

2019 Infiniti QX 50 will make public debut at the LA Motor Show. The one-of-a- kind production variable compression ratio engine of the all-new Infiniti QX 50 is quite a crackerjack. This humongous SUV has its 2.0 liter four cylinder engine that comes with VC-Turbo.

Infiniti is gearing up to introduce the 2019 QX 50 at the Los Angeles Auto Show and the company This will reportedly enable the QX 50 to accelerate from 0-60 mph faster than any of its Thanks to variable compression technology, the engine manages to be both powerful and fuel-efficient.

The result is 268 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 280 pound-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm; good figures for a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with a single-scroll turbocharger. Infiniti says that the FWD version's fuel economy of 27 miles per gallon combined is 35-percent better than the previous-generation V6 engine; in AWD guise, it reaches 26 mpg, which is a 30-percent improvement. The new engine is pretty much all-aluminum, but the vaguely magical-sounding "transformative multi-link components" behind the variable compression system are made from high-carbon steel alloy.

The engine's multi-link system also enables it to do away with any balancing shafts, and Infiniti compares its smoothness to a V6 rather than a regular four-cylinder. In addition to the aforementioned tech, the VC-Turbo engine has the world's first active engine mount vibration damping system to smoothen its operation even further.
