NEW SMALL BMW 6-CYLINDER ENGINES

DIE NEUEN KLEINEN BMW-SECHSZYLINDER-MOTOREN

BMW has developed a new small 6-cylinder engine intended for the small and medium-sized cars of the BMW model series in the range from 2.0 to 2.5 l. Compared with all other design configurations, this engine has a better driveability. Due to smaller cylinder units, high compression ratios and consequently better fuel economy could be obtained, since the friction loss, too, differs only negligibly from that of the 4-cylinder engines. Two configurations of this lightweight and short engine have been developed. Performance of the 2.0 l carburetor engine is 90 kW, that of the 2.3 l injection engine is 105 kW. Vehicles provided with these engines have low noise emissions and show good fuel economy.
