Renault starts to produce 1.6 Energy dCi 130 hp
As we advance, comes a new engine family of engines in Renault turbodiesel. It is the first of a new family of engines called Energy, oriented at a very low level of emissions of carbon dioxide, but with power and outstanding performance. The first rod is our protagonist, new 1.6 dCi 130 hp, with internal code R9M. The engine has been developed in recent years in the technical center of Rueil-Malmaison and will occur in the Normandy Cleon factory.
Up to 150,000 engines per year will be produced in the factory, which also produces the 2.0 dCi, 2.3 dCi and V6 dCi 3.0, plus 2.0 petrol riding the Clio RS and Mégane RS. Returning to our 1.6 dCi is the natural replacement of decrepit 1.9 dCi 130 hp, in the words of Renault he has already reached its technical limit. This four-cylinder engine and 1,598 cc will be released in the Scénic and Grand Scénic, but soon the whole family and other models Mégane Renault / Nissan will extend.
Its power is 130 hp at 4,000 rpm, but we more impressive peak torque of 320 Nm just 1,750 rpm. Although to impress, refinement in his act with a compression ratio of only 15.4: 1, one of the lowest in the market. Renault has incorporated into its design pieces 25% from the 2.0 dCi, but as engine has been developed from scratch with a new set of protocols for quality and reliability, as a bench test before getting into cars.
Aiming to be the most efficient among its engine thrusters, incorporates Stop system as standard a&Start and energy recovery under braking. As technical developments, an innovative thermal management system and a low pressure EGR. Initially it will be associated to a Manual gearbox with six gears, although it would be logical to think that Renault acoplase it to its direct-shift gearbox EDC, which for now is having little media coverage.
Of course it is quite obvious that an engine in blowing a variable geometry turbocharger, is connected to an intercooler and has a particle filter. In Scénic is an engine that consumes 4.5 l / 100 km and emits 117 g / km of CO2, a nice change from the 1.9 dCi, who drank 5.4 l / 100 km and emitting 149 g / km of these gases. It is an emission reduction of 20% to its predecessor. Article accompanied with technical illustrations supplied by Renault.
