This is to boost efficiency which slightly copies the BMW`s approach that pairs cylinders of around 500cc to create in line 3, 4 or 6 cylinder power packs as required. Diesel and petrol 4`s and 6`s are able to share 60% of all the parts thus cutting the cost for about 35%. The petrol six ranges from 200bhp to 400bhp. The engine has turbocharged 4`s, power base cars, coupled to 6-speed manual boxes with a 9-speed auto option. The diesel 6 will top 300bhp in the top spec. Toyota is plotting 2 plug-in hybrid modules that will boost power by either 110bhp or 80bhp to supplement the engine. These are not just about power so you should expect a thirty-mile zero emissions range. A mild hybrid potion will also be available with 40bhp and a 3-mile range. Coupling the sixes and e-motors provides a decent performance enabling petrol V8s to survive. The expected E63 AMG will run a 4.0 liter while packing around 553lb ft and 600bhp of torque.
