Since the very beginning, we have rewritten the rules of engine technology to push the boundaries of possibility. The VC-Turbo Engine, our latest innovation, combines the best of diesel and petrol engines. 20 years in the making, the VC-Turbo continuously transforms to balance exhilarating power and incredible efficiency, as required.
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING
For decades, many have tried. One has succeeded. The new VC-Turbo engine from INFINITI is one of the most advanced internal combustion engines ever created. The arrival of the variable compression ratio engine will establish new benchmarks – for power, efficiency and emissions – against which future powertrains will be measured.
300 PATENTS AND COUNTING, 20 YEARS IN THE MAKING
The VC-Turbo is an inspired fusion of two worlds. It combines the power of a high-performance 2.0 litre gas engine with the torque and efficiency of an advanced diesel powertrain. A feat of engineering that takes you further, faster.
UNCOMPROMISED PERFORMANCE AND EFFICIENCY
Moving seamlessly between between compression ratios, the VC-Turbo engine from INFINITI responds to the car’s driving conditions and continuously adapts. Transforming on demand from 8:1 for high performance to 14:1 for high efficiency. Performance when you need it, ultimate efficiency when you don’t.
TWO SIDES OF A WORLD’S FIRST
HOW IT WORKS
The VC-Turbo uses a multi link system that changes the stroke of the piston from high compression ratio 14:1 (fuel efficiency) to low compression ratio 8:1 (high performance).
A NEW BREED OF ENGINE
The VC-Turbo features lower fuel consumption, increased efficiency and higher output than comparable non-VC engines.
27% fuel efficiency improvement over non-vc engines.
Higher power output than many four cylinder non-vc engines.
10db vibration noise. 20db lower than non-vc engines.
