  1. The 2020 E-Class is moving to a new base engine and at the same time, changing the base designation from E300 to E350. The updated 2.0-liter turbo-charged 4-cylinder makes slightly (14) more horsepower at 255 than the outgoing engine, and the torque stays the same at 273 lb-ft. C&D tested the old E300 and found the zero to 60 mph time to be lackluster at 6.5 second. The new engine shaves half a second off the C300 4Matic and could make similar improvements in the E350. Power is routed through a 9-speed automatic. Mercedes 4Matic can be ordered for an additional $2,500. Along with the engine change comes a base price increase of $550.
  2. BMW is committing to keeping their V12 in production until at least 2023 according to BMW Powertrain Executive Michael Bayer, and he thinks it will be possible to make the engine compliant with the next round of Euro emissions regulations. That means it will stick around for the rest of the current generation of the 7-series sedan. Unfortunately, there will still not be a V12 offered in the 8-series coupe. We've already reported that Mercedes plans to cut its V12 out of the S-Class sedan after the 2020 model year. By doing so, it will make BMW the standard bearer for the final V12s in regular production. Audi already canceled its W12 engine starting with the 2017 model year though it is still in use in the Bentley Flying Spur. One possible reason for BMW keeping the V12 around is its use in Rolls Royce vehicles until they make the big leap to full electrification.
  3. Back in January, we reported on the rumor that Mazda was planning to launch a Homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engine for the 2018 Mazda3. HCCI engines are unique as they use compression, not spark to ignite gasoline. This will improve fuel economy and emissions. But the thing about HCCI engines is that automakers will produce prototypes and say they'll be coming within the new few years, and then nothing happens. We have some new details about Mazda's plan to debut their new HCCI engine. According to Motoring, Mazda will debut the engine at a technology forum in Frankfurt later this month. Reportedly, the engine will feature spark plugs to ignite the fuel at low rpms. Compression ignition will take place at higher rpms. Following this, Mazda will be showing off a concept at the Tokyo Motor Show in October. The concept will preview the next Mazda3 and possibly feature the new engine. The next Mazda 3 is expected to be revealed next year as a possible 2019 model year vehicle. Source: Motoring
  4. If you have read any review of the all-new Subaru Impreza, then you'll know there is one issue that many have pointed out - the anemic 2.0L four-cylinder. Masahiko Inoue, Subaru project general manager product and portfolio division told CarAdvice that he has been getting a lot of complaints with this engine. “Everybody is requesting from me a more powerful engine. Everybody thinks it needs more power. They are satisfied, they understand the Subaru Global Platform and the new 2.0-litre engine – but needing more power is a common complaint from everybody,” said Inoue. Inoue said the brand is looking at various options to solve this issue such as using a larger displacement engine (possibly the 2.5L from the Forester), turbocharging, or even a hybrid. But the final decision ultimately rests on how well the Impreza and sister model, the XV (Crosstrek for North America) sells. “Of course, we are studying, and we are now studying one of the options: a 2.4- or 2.5-litre engine, downsized and turbocharged, and power supported by motor, a hybrid. Every way we are studying for the next model, or the future model," said Inoue. “But we cannot spend money on this vehicle, because this is an entry vehicle for Subaru. We have to keep competitive with the cost for the entry vehicles, so if the turbocharged model is requested, maybe it will go to the Forester, or the Levorg, or another vehicle.” Source: CarAdvice
  5. It seems dual overhead cams are making a return to the Corvette in one application. A set of GM service documents made their way on to Reddit sometime this morning. In the documents, there is a 6.2L DOHC V8 with LT5 code. Furthermore, the engine application corresponds to the 2018 Corvette. There isn't any indication of forced-induction being used for this engine. LT5 holds a special place in Corvette history. This was the code used for the only Corvette to ever feature a DOHC V8, the C4 ZR-1. What could this engine be used for? The Drive believes this engine could be used for the mid-engine Corvette since it is a break from the traditional. We're wondering if there could be track-special Corvette that could use this engine.

  6. This morning on MSN / MotorTrend they had the story "15 optional enginese worth buying"! http://editorial.autos.msn.com/15-optional-engines-worth-buying?icid=autos_5982 The end result was the following list: Audi A6 - Upgrade to the TDI V6 Buick Regal - Upgrade to the Turbo I4 {they state this is German Entry Lux alternative worth the money} Ford Fiesta - Upgrade to Ecoboost Turbo I3 Jaguar F-Type - Upgrade to Supercharged V8 from Supercharged V6 Kia Optima - Upgrade to Turbo I4 Subaru Impreza - Upgrade to WRX VW Golf - Upgrade to the GTI Jeep Grand Cherokee - Upgrade to 3L EcoDiesel V6 over regular V6 Mazda CX-5 - Upgrade to Skyactiv 2.5L I4 Lexus IS 250 - Upgrade to 350 Ford F-150 - Upgrade base to 2.7L EcoBoost V6 option Ram 1500 - Upgrade base engine to 3L EcoDiesel V6 Dodge Challenger SRT - Upgrade to Hellcat as cost is only $63 per pony. Cheap MB SL63 AMG - Upgrade to SL65 Chevy Camero SS - Upgrade to Z28 or LT1 So with this list of optional engine upgrades that they feel you should do, I felt it was a great conversation to have here as there are plenty of other auto's not mentioned here that have optional engines that should be done also. Sound off on what auto's you feel should be had with the optional engines!
