The V-Cross is powered by a 2.5-litre, turbocharged diesel engine that produces 134 hp and 320 Nm of torque to take on the toughest road conditions and terrain.
The rich configuration of double overhead camshafts and 4 valves per cylinder produces high combustion efficiency achieving high power and good fuel efficiency.
An intercooler with thermo-cooling capacity is located at the front of the engine. Compression by the turbocharger causes the intake air to heat up, which is therefore pushed through an intercooler to reduce the temperature and increase the air density. This enhances the combustion efficiency of the engine, improves fuel efficiency, produces high power and reduces CO2 emissions.
A steel timing chain, with proven reliability compared to a standard timing belt, is used for long-lasting durability.
ISUZU's Variable Geometry System (VGS) Turbocharger helps improve performance at low engine rpm leading to better engine efficiency and less turbo lag.
The polymer-based coating applied on piston skirts significantly reduces friction during cold starts, while also improving engine longevity and fuel economy.
The big end of the piston connecting rod uses toughened friction bearings that work longer and minimise wear and tear among the engine components, thereby increasing durability.
ISUZU's electronically controlled common rail high-pressure system ensures the right amount of fuel is injected at the right time, at the right pressure; resulting in maximum engine performance at all times.
Achieving better engine efficiency with a balance of power, emission and good fuel economy is difficult. ISUZU has in-house expertise spanning many generations in developing electronic control software. This helps in achieving this right balance.
