PT Toyota Astra Motor (TAM) as the sole agent of Toyota in Indonesia,
has been offering new SUV. TAM ready to launch Toyota Fortuner with
Grand New Fortuner Diesel with Intercooler VNTurbo is a new engine that uses Variable Nozzle van Turbo (VNT) so as to provide greater air pressure at lower engine speed and torque becomes greater results in low rpm. Fortuner Diesel series before using the machine 2 KD-FTV IL 4Cyl DOHC 16 Valve D-4D and is now replaced model 2 KD-FTV IL 4Cyl DOHC 16 Valve D-4D Turbo Intercooler VN.
In this new engine produces maximum power of 144 ps / 3.400 rpm, this means an increase from the old engine with a maximum power of 102 ps / 3.600 rpm. So is the maximum torque increased by 35 kgm / 1.600 to 2.800 rpm of 26.5 kgm / 1.600 to 2.400 rpm. Grand New Fortuner Diesel has 4 types: Grand New Fortuner 2.5 G VN Turbo M / T VN Turbo Grand New Fortuner 2.5 G A / T Grand New Fortuner 2.5 G VN Turbo M / T TRD VN Turbo Grand New Fortuner 2.5 G A / T TRD Changes other than the engine, the Grand New Fortuner Diesel Hood Scoop VNTurbo have in the middle of the hood, its function is to funnel cool air into the intercooler.
Technology VN (Variable Nozzle) serves to control in optimizing the performance of the turbo engine produces an output which is distributed throughout the engine. Indonesia is a country that has the terrain and extreme tropical weather so many customers choose the type of car that memorable tough, strong and sporty. Type of car is the Grand New Fortuner Diesel. The enormity of the Fortuner Diesel VNT Variable Nozzle Turbo Diesel used Toyota Fortuner is extraordinary.
This device is able to increase the power output and torque significantly. With the VNT, the power output increased from 102 PS/3600rpm so 144ps/3400rpm. Semntara torque 26.5kgm/1600 - 2400 rpm to 35kgm/1600-2800rpm. Significant improvement was solely due to VNT for the exact same engine used, four-cylinder diesel engine capacity of 2.5 liters. To determine the action of VNT encourage more productive machines, it helps refresh your memory about turbochargers work. Turbo installation goal is to enrich the amount of oxygen into the war in order to fuel combustion. Supplementary oxygen is sucked from the outside. Turbocharger consists of a compressor duty to suck and push air into the combustion chamber. Kompressor has the same shaft with the turbine.
If the turbine spinning, spinning compressor also suck the air out, now is driven turbine exhaust gases from the engine. In the regular Turbo, so the compressor can be effective, it needs a strong putaranturbin. It can only be produced when the exhaust pressure is high. Or in other words, the new Turbo effective at high rpm. How to get enough pressure at low engine rpm? This is where innovation VNT. Berneda with the regular Turbo, the turbine has blades / blades. Blades the opening angle can be adjusted depending on engine load, rpm, and many other variables. Blades mover is an electric motor. At low speed, when the exhaust pressure is still weak and ineffective turbine, the blades were closed so that the exhaust gas flow in a narrow area automatically increase the pressure.
The result can effectively rotate turbines that makes the compressor work since the lower rounds. The higher the engine speed, the angle of aperture blades greater to avoid excessive tekanana which can damage the turbo. Since the turbo-related hot exhaust gas flow, the inhaled air temperature increase. And if the hot temperatures make tenuous and depleted oxygen molecules. Because it is on the Toyota Fortuner Diesel intercooler is fitted between the turbo and the intake manifold to reduce the temperature of the heat back so that the oxygen content becomes more dense. Sources of air is blowing outside air that flowed from the air scoop on the hood Fortuner Diesel VNT. A mainstay of Toyota Fortuner for class Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) medium in the Indonesian automotive market. TAM would like to strengthen the market by offering a diesel engine VNT, so Fortuner increasingly compete with competitors. The machine will use diesel Fortuner is Common Rail Turbo Intercooler VN (VNT) with a capacity of 2.5 liters.
The machine is also used by a variant double cabin Toyota Hilux. With engine capacity of 2.5 liter Common Rail Turbo Intercooler VN, engine capable of spraying power of 144 PS. Power is larger than the 2.5-liter D4D diesel engine, which produced only 102 PS.Selain increasing power output, torque is also boosted from just 26.5 kg-m to 35 kg-m. Despite the increase in power and torque, but the diesel engine coomon Rail Turbo Intercooler VN is still offering fuel efficiency.
At the Hilux carrying fuel reaches the 15.31 km per liter of diesel. Toyota said today the diesel version will be removed and for the petrol version is still sold in the market. How to distinguish the non-turbo diesel, we can see the presence of an air scoop on the bonnet.
Toyota Fortuner will only model with a 4x2 system. Still adopt the same engine with D-4D 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter turbo plus. In South Africa, VNT Fortuner 2.5 liter engine spitting out 142 hp power or greater than 40 hp from a non-turbo diesel. Still South African version, torque 343 Nm at 1600-2800 rpm, up 83 Nm of non-turbo diesel. Type TRD will still be presented in addition to the type of G. The transmission system is divided into two options, namely 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. Reportedly VNT Fortuner for the most expensive version (TRD A / T) priced at Rp 422 million. From the side view is actually no difference with the non-turbo diesel.
The difference may be seen from the air scoop in the hood The capacity of each machine is also said that D-4D 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter turbo that's just added greater strength. As for the transmission of the two models offered a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. No other information reported by Toyota, including the price. However, as a benchmark, the current PT Toyota Astra Motor has a total of seven variants of the Fortuner, three petrol and four diesel.
