V-6

  • 30 Days of the 2014 Jaguar F-Type

    As we continue our ongoing month of coverage of Jaguar's return to the sports car world with the 2014 F-Type, we now take you into a more in-depth look at the car's mechanical and other aspects. Today, we begin with the V-6 engines in the base F-Type and F-Type S. Displacing 3.0 liters, the aluminum V-6 engine in the F-Type is very similar to the one offered in the new XJ and XF sedans as well as the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport--right down to the 340 horsepower rating. Developed from the 5.0-liter V-8 also used by both Jaguar and Land Rover, the V-6 engines, thankfully, don't feel like...

    Is BMW Planning A Heretical V-6 Twin-Turbo Engine For The Next M3?

    The V-6 engine is a great thing. Many carmakers, notably Volkswagen and Nissan, have used them to great effect in various implementations. But BMW has a history of inline sixes, not Vs. That may be about to change if the latest patent drawings and reports hold up. As dug up by Bimmerpost, the...

  • 2012 Jaguar XF

    Jaguar’s current lineup in the U.S. is only offered with a range of V-8 engines, all displacing 5.0-liters and some coming in supercharged form. Outputs range from 385 horsepower in the base, naturally aspirated unit, and go up all the way to 510 horsepower in the range-topping ‘R’ variant of the engine. This leaves plenty of room for Jaguar to offer a new ‘entry-level’ engine that’s still powerful enough to be worthy of the brand’s luxury status. Jaguar is now reportedly looking to build an engine plant in the UK to manufacture a range of new V-6...

With eight pounds of...

  • 2011 Chevrolet Camaro

    We've already told you that rumors about the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro are leaking out. Now we've heard another one--this time concerning the V-6 powerplant. A post on the Camaro5 forums suggests that a new direct-injection 3.6-liter "LFX" V-6 is going to replace the current 3.6-liter mill. The LFX has dual-overhead cams, variable valve timing, and E85 capability. It will likely offer more horsepower--and perhaps better fuel-economy--than the current motor. Yet another move in never-ending pony-car arms race. [Camaro5 via Jalopnik]

  • 2011 Nissan Quest

    The idea of a more affordable Infiniti G sedan is intriguing.
