Volvo to come out with new diesel engines and transmission

Volvo to come out with new diesel engines and transmission

Volvo i-ART engine
Volvo is all set to ditch its Ford-sourced engines with the introduction of the new Volvo Engine Architecture (VEA). This new family of engines focuses on high diesel fuel efficiency figures. The i-ART technology uses pressure feedback from individual injectors instead of single pressure sensor in a common rail engine. i-ART automatically monitors the fuel pressure and conditions to maximise fuel economy. Along with this engine, Volvo will also debut its first 8-speed automatic gearbox which is said to have seamless shifts.
Volvo further elaborates that its 4-cylinder engines will eventually replace the 6-cylinder ones by providing the same amount of power but the fuel efficiency of the former. This 4-cylinder engine, Volvo claims, along with some hybrid electrification will render V8s obsolete.
