Fiat Power Technologies

FPT have made some rather nice engines recently,

1.4 Mulitair TB 170 (Engine of the year 2010)..

The rather nice 1750 tbi 230bhp motor found in the Giulietta and also some rather nice diesel engines too...

Also soon to follow will be the Twin air 2 Cylinder 85 bhp turbo for the Fiat 500 which sounds pretty exciting.

It seems to me that they are pretty good. So what are the chances of a V6 produced by them? or even a 5 cylinder 2.7 biturbo for a potential GTA?

I think better from them rather than the Penstar/chrylser route thing??

There's just no mass market for large cc engines in Europe anymore.

So I doubt there'll be any development about 2.0l for the petrols.

Saying that. Mazda did have the cute little 1.8 V6.......

No.
There was a 4 cyl 1.6 and a V6 1.8.

Maybe you are thinking of the 1.9L BMW Z3.

It was definitely a 1.8i V6 with passive rear wheel steering. (Weight shifting rear tracking)



Bloody brilliant car.

Was deffo a 1.8 V6 in the MX-3-was the smallest V6 in a car at the time and no-ones made anything smaller since, not heard of any 1.9 V6s though.

The 2 cyl multiair got great reviews in the 500.

The US is downsizing as well-its not just Europe, though as everything is relative a 2 litre is small for them. Still, doesnt matter that big engines are rare in Europe-tech has advanced so much that power/torque figs have gone up whilst engine size has gone down, so you get same power for la given displacement. The 1.7 makes 235bhp (in the Giulietta at least-wjhy not the 159 now the 6 has gone?), which isnt far off the 240-258 the Arese V6 made in the last few years of its life. And 85bhp from just 2 cylinders and 800 cc?! Wasnt that long ago that the average 1.4 4 cylinder made the same figs.

I read in Autocar last week that Saab have just released a 2.0 TTiD 9-5. As TiD/TTiD=rebadged JTD this ll be the 2 litre version of the old 1.9 twin turbo JTD. Fiat group cars got 190 and versions in other manufacturer's cars got 180, so in theory Fiat group cars should get a 197bhp version. Lets hope they put it in something other than just the Delta! Be great in the Giulietta!
